Easy Bread Recipe

If you have any questions please feel free to email or make a comment!

2 1/4 t dry yeast
1 c warm water
3 c flour
1 t salt
spices

Preheat oven to 450

Pour yeast into warm water and stir until dissolved.  Add the salt then flour one cup at a time stirring until it forms a ball of dough.  On a floured surface knead dough for 9 minutes adding any remaining flour.  Place dough in a oiled (cooking spray) bowl to allow to rise until its has doubled in size.   Punch down to deflate (This is my favorite part!).  Wait 5 minutes.  Place dough into a greased loaf pan.  Cut small slits in the top of bread to make it super pretty.  Brush the top of the bread dough with egg and spices.   Let rise for 45 minutes.  Bake for 20 minutes

Note: When I make this bread, in the the water and yeast mixture I add spices before adding flour.  I usually add crushed rosemary (about 1 t), ground thyme (about 1 t), and minced garlic (about 1 t) I also add rosemary and time with 1/2t sea salt to the egg wash.
