The Ultimate Guide to Baking Perfect Homemade Bread

If you’ve always wanted to make your own bread at home, you’ve come to the right place.

Follow along for some some pro tips to get some really good bread

When measuring out the flour, it’s best to put the flour in with a spoon rather than scooping the flour from a large container. Scooping packs the cup, while spooning it in helps to have more even and soft distribution.

Tip #1: Don't Pack the measuring cups

Place the dough in a place that’s warmest in your kitchen for rising.  An environment of 70-75F is best.

Tip #2: Let the loaf rise in a naturally warm place

Don't burn yourself, but let the bread be a little bit warm when you cut it. Pro tip: that first warm slice is perfect with butter!

Tip #3: Slice the bread while it’s still warm.
