1 Hour bread

I know what you're thinking.  Bread that can be made from start to finish in only 1 hour can't be very good.  But this bread is.  It compares to the bread that takes all afternoon to make.  And I could make it all during nap time.  Perfect for me!  

The reason this bread can be made so quickly is because of the amount of yeast used in it.  1 little package of instant yeast is about 2 1/2 tsp, and makes 4-6 loaves usually.  This recipe calls for 1 1/2 Tbsp and makes two loaves.  It can (and usually will) rise very fast, so you can put it in the oven quickly, and have fresh bread in time for dinner!

  • 5 1/4 cups flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp yeast
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp Oil
  • 2 cups hot tap water
Mix together dry ingredients, then add wet ingredients.  You might need some more water, depending on how the dough is sticking together (I usually need a bit more).  After it's kneaded, you can no longer add any more flour or water, so check the stickiness before you start the kneading process. Knead in your mixer for about 5 minutes.   Divide the dough into 2 bread pans and let it rise for a while (approx 25 minutes, but watch it, it can rise fast sometimes, and won't need long) then bake for about 30 minutes at 350degs.



  1. Any modifications needed if using whole wheat flour?

  2. Hi Carrie,
    I've actually never made this recipe with whole wheat. My mother has a similar recipe that uses whole wheat instead of white and it calls for approx the same amount of flour. I'd mix everything together except 1/2 cup of flour and see how the dough consistency is. If it's too wet, add the rest of the flour. It should work out alright! Let me know how it goes.
