One rise bread

Homemade bread ~ soft, buttery, and fills the whole house with a wonderful aroma. 
It's one of my favorite things 
but it takes hours to make.
Well, not any more! 
I have found a fantastically fast one rise bread recipe thanks to Julie at Circle Cliff Views. She's an angel for sharing it with us.


This one rise bread has become my go to recipe.  If you have never tried making your own bread but have always wanted to, this is the recipe for you!  It only takes an hour and a half start to finish.  You have that much time, right? 
Grab some flour, girl, and let's bake!

One rise bread (makes 2 loaves)

In a large mixer place:
2 1/2 cups hot tap water
1 T salt
1/3 c. oil
1/3 c. sugar or honey
2 T yeast
1 egg

Mix together a little and then add 6 c. flour.
This can be any combination of wheat and white flour.  For white bread use all white flour and for wheat bread use half and half or more wheat if you want.

Mix flour until it "leaves" the sides of the bowl.  Then continue mixing 10 minutes.
Pour dough onto an oiled countertop.  Divide in two.  Form into two loaves and place in bread pans sprayed with Pam.

Turn oven on to 350 degrees and set bread to rise on top of it for about 30-40 minutes or until it peeks over the top of the pans.
Pop in oven for 25 minutes.
Remove yummy bread from oven and from pans.
Beam with pride while you butter the tops.
Let cool completely before slicing.

But wait.
You can also make these into cinnamon rolls!  Or make one loaf of bread and one pan of cinnamon rolls which is what I do.


To make cinnamon rolls:
Roll out half of the dough on an oiled countertop to form large rectangle about 9x12. 
In a bowl, mix 1/2 cup sugar & 1 T cinnamon with 2 T softened butter. 
With a pastry cutter or fork, cut butter into sugar & cinnamon until it forms a crumbly mixture. 
Spread out on top of rolled out dough. 
Roll the short side toward you to form a log. 
Cut cinnamon rolls about 2 inches thick and place in cake pans sprayed with Pam. 
Rise for 30-40 minutes. 
Bake for 12-18 minutes.  My oven's perfect number is 14 minutes. 
Glaze with powdered sugar mixed with milk.

So there you have it.  The perfect bread recipe. Fast, easy, & soooo good!

  1. Oh dear, you have me drooling all over the keyboard. I MUST make this bread today! I can't wait to beam with pride! Yum yum. We are having a big fat salad for dinner and I think a slice of buttery bread will do quite nicely :)

    p.s. Evan and I talked about it and we are more than willing to accommodate all 49 of you as long as you bake us this bread.

  5. I'm going to have to give this a try! I've used several different bread recipes but they're not consistent. Hopefully, this will be the answer! I also like the idea of the cinnamon rolls for the second loaf! My hubby will love it!

  11. Since the cinnamon rolls are in a round pan, does this mean hubby only gets one?

  13. Michaele,
    Hubby says thanks for looking out for him. And yes, he says he is blessed to get 1. That's why the 1 he does get needs to be his favorite 1.

    Holly,
    We will be there as soon as we get all the animals loaded. I think we all could go for some cooler weather. I'll bring the bread ~ lots of bread!

  19. Me oh my, looks delicious! I wonder what modifications would need to be made if one were to bake it in a Dutch oven...?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Alright..made the bread with white whole wheat flour..my bread didn't rise pretty. I made one loaf and sweet rolls..one of those sweet rolls jumped right up into my mouth shortly out of the oven...pretty darn tasty..

  21. Made all this... so yummy! I used rapid rise yeast and bread flour. Do you have to use those things?

  22. Natalie,
    I think you could make this in a dutch oven. I haven't tried it, but have done a lot of dutch oven cooking as a Boy Scout mom.
    River Bend,
    Did you put it on top of the warm oven. I have also set mine in the sunny kitchen window.
    Jamie,
    I use Rapid rise yeast and regular white flour. Glad you like it!
