When we started the Shelf Cooking challenge a few years ago, I started looking for ways I could use my pantry items more. We go through bread like crazy in the Page household, and I wondered if I could start making my bread at home.
And guess what?! I have found the best, most delicious, easy bread recipe ever! We make it with simple white flour to cut and use for toast and sandwich bread, but you could make it with wheat if you'd prefer. Ready to learn how?
WATCH OUR HOW TO BAKE BREAD VIDEO
I found this recipe from The Food Nanny and adapted it. Liz is a friend of mine and is the sweetest lady around! And boy, she knows her bread! Hopefully you love it as much as we do.

Sounds pretty easy, right? Now you know how to bake bread, stop dawdling and get to it! 😉 Here's a little refresher to have you going from yeast to bread in no time.
We also have a quick how-to video that shows you how these delicious loaves shape up oh so easily!
We even get rave reviews about the recipe!
I have made bread for years. I made this bread and it is everything Jordan says. It was beyond my expectations. I even sliced it before it was completely cooled and it sliced like hot butter. Then I made toast this morning and oh my goodness! This is my new favorite recipe for sandwich bread. Very tasty and totally easy to make.Jackie
PRODUCTS NEEDED TO BAKE BREAD
Before you can bake your delicious bread, you'll need a few items to get started:
- Dough Hook – If you're using a KitchenAid mixer, then be sure to find one that fits your specific model! However, you don't have to use a mixer at all, you could just get a large mixing bowl and mix it all by hand.
- Rectangle Loaf Pans – You can use any type of bread loaf pan, but the metal rectangles are my favorite.
- Cooling Rack – Your bread will need to be able to cool completely before you can put it away.
- Clear Bread Bags – If you're making a large loaf of bread, then these bread bags are awesome! A large loaf of bread won't fit in a food storage bag, so this is your best option for keeping it fresh if you're not going to eat it all right away. (I wouldn't blame you if you did eat it all at once, though, it's that good!)
Pro Tip: A bread maker is a popular appliance in many kitchens, but we do NOT recommend baking your bread in a bread maker (as we feel it always comes out with the texture of a rock). However, we DO suggest using a bread maker to mix, proof, and rise your bread if you have one!)
Alright, moving on to…
TIPS TO MAKE THE BEST BREAD
As you noticed in the video, this really is such an easy bread recipe. The hardest part is probably figuring out how much flour to use. Just follow these few tips and you'll be a pro in no time!
Start off by mixing the bread dough with the regular mixer attachment. Once the dough is starting to form, switch to the dough hook. (For me, that's usually between five and six cups of flour.) Continue adding flour in 1/4 cup increments until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Once that happens, allow it to knead for six minutes in the mixer (or do it by hand).
While your bread is kneading, grease your metal pans with shortening. It's easiest to do this by greasing it with a sandwich bag on your hand. You can thank me later (in the form of your fresh-baked bread, of course) for this handy little hack that keeps your hand from getting greasy! 😉
Once you hit six minutes, take it out of the bowl and knead by hand a few times. Then, split the dough in half, knead a few more times, and shape into loaf shapes.
WHERE TO LET YOUR BREAD RISE
After your dough is in its new loaf home, it needs to be covered with a dish towel and put somewhere warm to rise until it's doubled. I like to turn the oven on to 350°F for about a minute, then turn it off and put the covered bread in there so it's in a warm environment. Don't leave the oven on and walk away because you're not baking it yet, just getting those loaves to rise!
LEARN HOW TO BAKE BREAD WITH OUR EASY BREAD RECIPE
If you've been looking for an easy homemade bread recipe, then this is it! It's basically fool-proof. If someone who doesn't like to bake and isn't that good at it (*raises hand shamelessly*) can make this bread, then so can you!
Easy, Homemade Bread Recipe
- 2 ½ cups milk
- ¼ cup butter
- ⅓ cup honey
- 2 ½ tsp active dry yeast
- 1 egg, beaten
- 2 tsp salt
- 5-7 cups all-purpose flour
- Heat the milk, butter, and honey in the microwave for about 45 seconds. Stir and heat for another 45 seconds. Cool liquids down to luke-warm if they're too hot.
- Pour the milk mixture into a large bowl or in a heavy-duty mixer. Add the yeast, egg, salt, and enough flour to stir together and make a moderately stiff dough. Knead for about 6 minutes by hand or in a bread mixer.
- Generously grease 2 bread pans. If you use the rectangle pans I use, you need to grease with Crisco!
- Form dough into 2 loaves and place in pans. Cover with a dishtowel. Let dough rise until doubled.
- Bake at 350°F for 30 to 35 minutes on the middle rack, until browned on top.
- Allow to cool on a wire rack before cutting or putting in a storage bag. Enjoy!
Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Start this bread in the afternoon and you'll have some delicious bread to eat with dinner.
I love to pair it with baked potato soup, butternut squash soup, or my favorite build your own soup where you basically throw everything you own that's going bad into a soup and it turns into the most delicious thing EVER.
Oh, and PS! If you haven't made this bread already, just wait! When you do make homemade bread, something magical happens. The smell of baking bread makes your whole house feel warm and fresh. You'll have your kids and husband coming to you and asking what that absolutely amazing smell is… You'll pretty much be a new kind of hero! Sounds appealing, right? I challenge you to give this bread-baking thing a try!

I loaf you! 😉
Any tips on cutting this evenly in slices for sandwiches?
1-I let it cool for a few hours before cutting it, berofe that is too tender.
2- Put your hand on top of the loaf to grab it firmly adn use your thumb- index finger as reference for cutting
3-Use a long serrated knife instead of a sharp blade one, move it down slowly while serrating.
I use a meat slicer
Do you have an approximate rise time? Like an hour, 3 hours, etc? Thanks!
I always let it rise for an hour, but this depends a lot on room temperature.
When it´s twice the size its time to get it into the oven
1.5 hours if you put in an off oven with 4 cups of boiling water beside it. That creates a warm humid environment and 1.5hrs works for me. Then i usually don’t have time to deal with it so punch it down and let rise another 30… over and over until i actual bake it😅
I am so PROUD of you! I hate to sound patronizing but you are doing such a wonderful job as a wife, mother and woman.

I have an old bread maker and a mixer with a dough hook. Maybe I should employ them both, freeze half the yield, and only make bread every other week. I’ll try it but I’ll probably go back to Costco 2-packs.
Yay! For loaf bread!!!
This has made such a difference in our grocery budget!

I need those bread pans!
Trying this tomorrow! I’ve never been good at bread baking ?
You’re amazing !!! Thank you for the recipe
I have to try this recipe, thank you so much Jordan! I use a bread maker and already make all our bread but use a bulk mix I buy bagged from the supermarket, I want to try this one so bad so I am going to have to adapt for my machine I think(we don’t have a mixer) but this looks so delicious! I have had so much trouble finding pans like that in Australia though, i have been looking for nearly 2 years.
I have been dying to try this recipe!! I’m awful at baking but would love to learn how to make yummy homemade bread. My mom always made bread when I was little and those were some of my favorite days!! Can’t wait to give this recipe a try!
Bought the pans!!! Must haves!! And this recipe is on point!!!!!! Does your fam like peanut butter? Cut two slices thick bread, put PB in the middle, dip in raw scrambled eggs and prepare like French toast…… eat with syrup! Delicious!!!! ?
Homemade bread is THE BEST!! You remind me of me when I first started making my own bread. I had always wanted to do, but in my head it was basically rocket science. Then one day is decided to go for it! I found a recipe that was supposedly “super easy” (and thank goodness that turned out to be the truth!!), and I just did it!! SO YUMMY!! I will definitely be giving this recipe a go!! Thanks!!
Let’s just pretend that my last comment actually had my name spelt right… 😉
I’m totally using this recipe!
This was so helpful!! thank you???
I love this! Such a simple thing to make to save a few bucks. Can’t wait to bake these with my girls!
Oh my, this sounds amazing!!
Thanks so much for the recipe! I will try it out very soon!
I had never made bread before and I was really nervous that it wasn’t going to come out right. This was great and easy to follow with the instructions and video. It’s a big bonus my husband loves homemade bread.
I love that I have all of these ingredients in my pantry right now. I just saw the video on YouTube and can’t wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!!!
I’m definitely going to have to give this a try the next time I need bread at my house.

Okay I watched your video and it looks easy BUT…….I don’t have a legit standing mixer and it’s been hard to convince myself to buy a kitchen aid! I mean we are on a TIGHT budget ?So is there another mixer that is a bit cheaper you suggest? I’m so torn because I love to bake, but just can’t bite the bullet and get the kitchen aid! ?♀️
Whenever you post about making bread, I crave it because fresh bread slathered in butter is one of my guilty pleasures. I totally need to make some soon!!!
I am sooo gonna make this on Sunday!!! Thanks for sharing!?

I HAVE to try this recipe! I am well known in my family to be the exception to fool proof recipes, anything involving flour and yeast. I love homemade bread but I cannot bake to save my life. Pretty much making food in general, thanks Jordan for the recipe!
I have never made bread because I’m scared to use yeast ? Don’t worry I’m 28 so I should clearly have this skill already! This post gives me confidence that maybe I can!
I want to try this! What is all purpose flour? Im in the UK and we have plain of self raising.

Ok! I’m going to give this a try. I’ve never been good at bread making…even with an actual bread maker Haha! But you’ve convinced me to try it!
I love this recipe! Do you let it rise for an hour?
Thanks SO MUCH for this! I would also be very interested in seeing how you cut it up?
I love simple recipes like this!! Thanks!
I’m so excited to try out your bread recipe!! I ordered the long metal bread pan too!!!
I adore the Edmunds family! Best neighbors ever! We love her recipes. Your bread looks fantastic!
Thanks! I love easy recipes going to try this!
Are you able to cut slices evenly or do you just wing it?
We eat a lot of bread in our family! This would be a great way to save money on our groceries by making it at home.
Looks yummy! I’m gonna have to get me some of those pans!! ?
Homemade bread is bomb.com!
I really need to try this! Thanks for the recipe!

I can’t wait to try this recipe. My husband and I are having our monthly budget talk next week and I will hopefully be buying those great bread pans. My mom uses them and loves them.
I don’t make bread often, but now having this easy recipe AND a visual on video HELPS A TON!!
I am so excited to try this today and hopefully have wonderful homemade bread every week!!! Thanks
Tried this it was delicious fresh. I think it would better with bread flour.
I would love to do this but I don’t own a stand up mixer! Whomp whomp whomp (like the sounds from old cartoons lol) 🙁 .
I’m going to make this today, I hope!
I love easy recipes! I bet this would work with gluten free too for my son!!!

Ooh! I might have to try this! Does it cut and toast easily without crumbling?

Such a great tool to save some money from my good budget.

I have never made home made bread (something about it is intimidating). But this feels simple enough for me to give it a try! Thanks!
I am so excited to try this! I would love to make my own bread cause we go through it so fast – my daughter loves toast. Haha, thank you!
Those impulse buys get me every time. Need to work I’m going less.
Trying this tonight!
Saving this for next week! Thanks!
Made this recipe the other day and it’s super easy and so yummy!! Excited to have a bread recipe I’m not intimidated by!

So glad I found this. Home made bread is so much tastier than store bought by far!!!
I’m totally going to try a gluten free version of this! Thanks!
Never baked bread but want to try!
How long does it take to double usually?
I definitely want to try this!
I’ve been watching and waiting for your bread recipe and bread pan link! I got a new BIG mixer (8qt commercial Kitchenaid) for Christmas that I want to start making bread again with!
Excited to try this!
Making bread is not soo hard! Yeah!
This was so easy! I’m saving to buy those bread pans now!
The sandwich loaf pans really genius
I have been wanting to give bread baking another go. I am excited to try this recipe! 🙂
This looks so good! I have been looking for a good bread recipe. I am planning to make this tonight.
Okay those pans are legit and this recipe is far from intimidating! I also love that it’s stuff I already have in my pantry!
I just bought two of the USA Pullman pans from Amazon after watching your YouTube video. I can’t wait to try your recipe. It looks doable. Thanks!
Love how easy your recipes are!
I love this recipe! Thanks for making it easier to be a better wife to my hubs! You give out such practical tools and I love it!
Thankful for you!
I’m making this tomorrow!
I just made this bread today and it was perfect and delicious. I even watched your video twice because I needed to find the recipe and I took a screen shot of the recipe. And now I just found it at the bottom of the post. Thanks Fun Cheap or Free for helping make fun and cheap bread with so little effort!
Looks great. Can’t wait to try!
Can’t wait for my first try to bake bread!
I really want to try this! I’ve never made bread in my life!
I’m so excited to try this!
I’m saving up to buy a kitchenaid mixer and the first thing I’m going to make is this bread!!!
Cant wait to try!
I wonder if this would work with gluten free flour? I’ll have to try it!
Oooo i wpnder if my gluten free flour would work?? ?
Printed and going to try!!! Thanks!
I loved your shelf cooking challenge. I made some bread during the challenge but I think I’ll have to try this recipe as well!
I can’t wait to try this bread! I used to make bread but it’s been even awhile, this looks amazing! Thank you!
I need to be better about making pretty bread like that! Keep trying!
Thanks! Been wanting a long loaf recipe!
this looks so yummy! i need to give it a try pronto!
This bread looks amazing! I love love your hacks and time saving ideas, need all I can get if that in my life! And warm bread on a cold winter day, oh yes please! Can’t wait to try!
This is very useful! I still love the Shelf Cooking group on Facebook! Such a great idea!
I’ve made this bread twice and it was delicious but both times it didn’t rise! Am I doing something wrong? I’m not a baker so I have no idea what it could be. It tasted great but I definitely cannot use this for sandwiches. Please help!
Gurrrrrrl this bread is ahhhhmazing!!! I make at least 2 loaves a week and they are the big pans too 16×4! We use this for homemade garlic bread with sketti, Alfredo, stuffed shells…umm basically any pasta ? We use it for sandwiches. Toast. You name it we prolly do it! We love homemade bread and this recipe is the bomb dot com!! Thank you for sharing the recipe and the pan!
so, do you use two of the 13 X 4 inch pans for one recipe?
I can’t wait to try this. Wonderul information.
Hi Jordan, Greetings from Uruguay! I really admire your energy!
I´ve been baking this bread for a few months now and it´s always, always delicious! Once I run out of honey and used brown sugar and you couldn´t tell the difference.
Since I work 9 to 5 during the week it has become part of my Saturday morning routine. I make this recipe twice in the morning and by night, cut it in 1cm slices and freeze it. Just put them in the toaster once to defrost or twice to toast and is ready to eat.
Why cut it by night? Before then the bread is soooo tender that cutting straight slices is really difficult.
Last week I even used this dough to make cinnamon rolls. Just spread the dough thin with a rolling pin put some butter, sugar and cinnamon on top (no measures here just do as you feel) . Then roll everything and cut one inch slices, put them on a cookie tray and let them rise.
Really good with tea or coffee to get some heat in your body (sorry winter here ….)
If I want to just use this recipe in my bread machine to mix and bake do I just halve the ingredients? Thanks
What temp do you warm the butter, honey and milk? I have to do this step on the stove (as my microwave just went out a few days ago). Thank you!
i keep making this recipe, it’s so amazing! i just reduce the honey, but leave the rest, it’s the best bread and it stays the same for days! thanks jordan!
I just want to let you know I’ve made this recipe only with dairy free substitutions and it still turned out fabulous! I used coconut milk and Earth balance vegan butter. Thanks!
Oh wow, that’s great to hear! Thank you for sharing that with me.
Best bread in the world!! Amaze! Thanks, Jordan!! :))
Isn’t it?! You’re so welcome! 🙂
I am curious if you have ever made this bread dough in a bread machine, allowing it to rise in there and then transferring to the oven to bake. Thanks.
I’ve never made the dough in a bread machine, but I don’t see why you couldn’t!
I’ll definitely make this for kids and hubs, but I was wondering if you happen to know a gf version? I know that’s not really your thing but just thought I’d check😊
Thank you for all your wonderful content!
That’s definitely not our area of expertise! But would using a gluten-free flour do the trick? You’ll have to try it out and let us know! 🙂
Haven’t tried this recipe yet but am excited to! Anyone have any “hacks” to make it honey-free? My carb-loving 8 month old will thank you!
