Simple homemade bread recipe - Motherhood Charm

I decided to share this bread recipe after so many messaged me on Instagram asking for a recipe. I love to cook and bake, but I am no chef. I grew up with homemade bread, it’s a must in our culture. We rarely ever went to buy bread. So naturally, I love everything bread. Hopefully you’ll love this bread as much as I do. And, if you try making it, tag me and let me know how you like it.

Simple Homemade Bread Recipe

2 cups of flour

1 tb sugar

1 tb salt

1 egg

Yeast

2 1/2 cups of warm milk

Unsalted butter

Oil

That’s all you’ll need.

I should mention that I knead the bread by hand, and have never tried the mixer. I am sure it would turn out the same, if not better but just thought I’d mention that.

Follow these simple steps

Mix flour, sugar, salt and yeast together by hand. Then add milk and continue mixing by hand. You don’t want it to be too thick or too watery. If you need to add more milk, by all means do so. Just make sure it’s warm. It won’t rise as nicely.

Knead bread and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Then knead again. The more you knead the nicer the bread comes out. You don’t need to knead for hours, 10 minutes is good enough for me.

Then let sit for another 30 minutes or until dough rises completely. You’ll want to let it rise all the way as that makes the bread fluffier and nicer.

Once the dough rises, take it out and put it on the table (or kitchen countertop) and knead a bit more to shape it. Then cut in half.

Set one half aside. And roll out the one half.

After you roll one half, it should be shaped like a rectangle, obviously it doesn’t need to be perfect. Then on one side cut with a knife just like in this photo.

Then roll the bread up.

Place in the baking pan (put a baking sheet first).

Use a baking brush (or your fingers if you don’t have one) to put some oil on the bread.

Add a few slices of butter on top.

Repeat for second half.

Once both are in the pan let them sit for another 15 minutes.

Pre-heat oven to 400F.

Then place in the oven and cook for about 20 mins.

Easy way to check if bread is done is by poking it with a knife. If nothing sticks to the knife, it’s done.

That’s it.

It’s super simple, and this recipe never fails me.

Tag me on Instagram if you try it so I can share 🙂

Hljeb kao iz pekare

Nikad, bas nikad nisam pisala blog na Srpskom a jos manje recepte. Nisam dobra ni u jednom, ni drugom al’ toliko vas mi je poslalo poruka na Instagram trazeci recept za hljeb koji cesto pravim i dijelim. Pa evo i taj recept, vrlo jednostavan a samo da znate mjere su odprilike.

A bas zato sto ne znam da pisem recepte, i ne znam te mjere tacne, ne volim da dijelim. Al’ postoji prvi put za sve 🙂

Sastojci:

2 solje brasna

1 jaje

mala kasika secera

velika kasika soli

kvasac

2 1/2 solje toplog mlijeka

Puter (za premazivanje)

Ulje (za premazivanje)

Priprema:

Sve sastojke dodajte skupa osim mlijeka.

Toplo mlijeko dodavati u smjesu i mjesati rukom dok se smjesa na sjedini. Ne treba da bude previse tvrdo a ni previse mekano.

Kad izmjesate, poklopite i ostavite da nadodje. Ja poklopim tanjirom.

Nakon 10-tak minuta opet promjesajte smjesu (rukom), i ostavite da nadodje skroz. Ja obicno cekam jedno sat vremena.

Onda ga izvadite iz zdjele, i stavite na sto gdje cete praviti hljeb i promjesajte na brasnu rukom. Oblikujte hljeb, i onda ga podijelite na 2 dijela. Tako dobijete dva hljeba kao na ovoj slici.

Razvijete jednu polovinu, ne previse tanko, oblikujte i na jednoj strani razrezati kao sto vidite na slici. Onda samo umotajte hljeb kao strudlu (ili kiflu). Sad stavite u pleh oblozen papirom za pecenje i uradite isto sa drugom polovinom.

Kad su obadva hljeba zavrsena, ostavite ih da stoje u plehu jedno 15-tak minuta. Tako nadodju jos malo i budu ljepsi.

Rernu stavite na 400 F ili 200 C da se zagrije.

Kad je proslo 15-tak min (a i rerna se ugrijala), premazite hljeb sa uljem malo i dodajte puter (ne osoljeni). Sitne male komadice na svaki hljeb (ja stavim 3 male kockice na svaki). I ubacite u rernu da se pece, jedno 20-tak minuta al’ mozete vidjeti jel’ gotovo ako ga bocnete sa nozem. Ne valja ako se prepece.
