Moreover, in the shops sometimes such bread is prepared, that it is almost impossible to eat. We sometimes have such an unsuccessfully bought bread that lays for a long time, as a result, it goes either to crackers or to dogs for joy.

Perfectly it turns out bread in home bread makers, it is convenient, especially since now you can buy such a oven for every taste and color, as they say. But you can do without it, for example, to make homemade bread in the oven.

Homemade bread in the oven.

This is one of the easiest recipes, according to which I started myself. Suppose it is not perfect, but if it turns out, then bread is very soft, tasty, crisp ...

And the most important thing is that the quality of bread depends on the flour, I just realized from experience that different manufacturers have different quality, and the bread is different. It is better not to save money on flour and take the one that you know better.

We will need:

  • Water - 1 cup (boiled),
  • Flour - 3.5 cups,
  • Vegetable oil - 3 tablespoons,
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon,
  • Dry yeast - 0.5 bags,
  • Sugar - 2 tablespoons.

From this amount we get 2 small loaves.

First you need to sift the flour, in a separate bowl sift 3 cups. We make a dimple there and add sugar, salt and yeast (1/2 bag).

All thoroughly mixed.

After doing the recess again and pour the oil there vegetable and boiled water at room temperature.

Now knead the dough. First with a spoon, then with hands on the table. Knead about 15-20 minutes. As you knead, add a little flour so that it does not stick to your hands.

The resulting dough should not stick to your hands.

Now put the dough in a bowl, you can pan, cover with a lid or towel and put in a warm place for 1 hour at least.

When the dough fits, you need to thoroughly rinse it.

Now we form loaves. Divide the dough into 2 equal halves and form the loaves with your hands or a rolling pin as you like.

First, roll out a rectangle, then roll it up with a roll. The edge is well punched from the sides too.

Prepare a baking sheet, smearing it with vegetable oil. We lay out our loaves on it and lightly press down with handles. Put at a great distance from each other.

Top do with a knife a few oblique cuts.

We leave our loaves brew for 45 minutes. During this time they will increase in volume.

We heat up our oven to 200 degrees. Before you send the loaves in the oven, grease the top with ordinary boiled water so that the crust turns out to be more ruddy.

Now put the homemade bread in the oven. Bake for 30 minutes, then reduce the temperature to 180 degrees and bake another 10 minutes.

After we take out our loaves and we moisten with some water from above so that the crust is softer.

That's all, the bread is ready, you can cut and serve. Enjoy your meal.

Homemade bread video recipe.

It is practically the same here, all the stages are absolutely similar, only slightly different proportions of the ingredients. Tried exactly according to this recipe - it turned out very tasty. We will not duplicate the top recipe, but simply offer you to see if it can be easier to perceive.


  • Flour - 600 g,
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon,
  • Sugar - 1.5 teaspoons,
  • Dry yeast - 2 teaspoons,
  • Vegetable oil - 4 tablespoons,
  • Warm water - 300 ml.

Homemade bread in the oven Ciabatta.

An interesting name, but I used to think that it was just another kind of bread. It turned out to be the usual homemade bread in the oven, on yeast or sourdough. And this dish is Italian, that's how.

In general, almost all the same as above, only the other proportions of the ingredients and the form in the form of "cakes". But in fact, delicious, and the crust is so crispy, pleasant, so try, you will love it.

We will need:

  • Flour - 400 g,
  • Dry yeast - 1/2 teaspoon or 2.5 ml,
  • Water - 300 ml
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon.

I want to note that we do not add sugar, but still it turns out very tasty. Then we tried and sugar (1.5 teaspoons), turned out more sweeter. It’s already at your convenience, you liked it more without sugar.

Sift flour into a separate bowl, where we will knead the dough.

Add salt and yeast into the flour. All mix thoroughly.

Now add water, but first 250 ml, stir, then look at the situation, adding a little more water. I got that little water left, I did not add to the dough did not work liquid.

Now we cover the dough, I covered it with cling film, and leave for 7 hours at least, but not more than a day. This is convenient, such dough can be kneaded in the morning and continue to knead in the evening or in the evening, and continue in the morning.

After time, the dough has risen, continue. Sprinkle the table with flour, we do not regret that the dough does not stick to the table when we put it out of the bowl.

We spread the dough out of the bowl and sprinkle with flour on top, then with our hands we make a small rectangle, lightly pressing.

Now fold the envelope and again make a rectangle. And so a total of 3 times. As a result, there should be a rectangle on the table. Usually so kneaded puff pastry.

The dough is sticky, so that in places where it sticks to the table or hands, sprinkle with flour.

After 3 foldings, we twist the rectangle into a roll and bend the edges to the bottom.

Now on a pre-cooked baking sheet covered with parchment, put our bread and sprinkle with a little flour on top. Then with a knife or blade, make three cuts.

Leave for proofing for 1.5 - 2 hours, covered with a towel. The dough should rise 2 times.

After 2 hours we put our bread in the oven, preheated to 170 degrees for 50 minutes to bake.

After the time has passed, without opening the oven, we increase the temperature to 215 degrees and bake for another 15 minutes.

Then we take out our bread and from the top we lubricate with water, it can be more abundant, so that the crust softens.

Cover with a linen towel and leave to cool the bread for about 1 hour. After that you can serve.

But it also happens that bread did not work out, it rises well and quickly, but at the end of the second proofing or at the beginning of the baking cycle, the roof-dome of bread falls.

There are the following main reasons:

  1. High content of yeast in the dough.
  2. Increased moisture content in the dough billet, failure to balance the flour / liquid.
  3. Wrong timing of the first or second proofing. This factor is called “the dough has stood” ...
  4. Opening the oven door during baking ...

Homemade bread without yeast.

Sometimes, for health reasons, you can not eat pastries, where there is yeast. Then the real salvation is unleavened bread. Just like in the old days.

  • Rye flour - a little more than 1 kg,
  • Vegetable oil (better refined) - 4 tablespoons,
  • Salt - 1 teaspoon,
  • Honey (sugar) - 1 tablespoon,
  • Water.

It’s best to start cooking in the morning. A large container of glass or ceramic is required.

Cover with cotton napkin. Put in a place where it is warm. It is advisable not to use metal - even stir with a wooden spoon or spatula.

After one day, add water and flour to this dough (100 each). Leave it warm again.

On the third day, repeat.

The fourth day - the time comes to the final. Pour in 500 ml of water and pour in so much flour that the dough resembled thick cream. Leave for a day.

The next morning you need to separate ¼ part - this will be the so-called “roschina”, which can be used for further baking bread (repeating the procedure of adding portions of flour and water). In the rest of the dough, add salt, sugar and pour in vegetable oil. Stir first with a wooden spoon and only at the end with your hands.

Grease a baking sheet with butter. Form a loaf. Put on a baking sheet. Leave for three hours to climb.

Baking bread at home

The purchase of a special bread machine with a high price is not justified for every hostess. If you are not sure that you often want to cook such a product, it is better to try baking bread at home in the oven. Basic ingredients list for short:

It is relevant for almost any recipe, including corn or rye bread, where the basis will still be wheat flour. However, it is possible to replace yeast with yeast, water for milk, the introduction of herbs, oil, eggs, etc. Before you begin to learn even the simplest recipe, you need to familiarize yourself with the basics of the process of kneading dough, proofing, setting temperature conditions.

Firstly, the use of wheat flour is mandatory, even if you are preparing Borodino black bread - without it, baking will not rise. Secondly, pay attention to the yeast - they should be fresh, better alive: with a dry rise worse. After that you can figure out how to knead the dough. Several conditions:

  • Dough must be kneaded by hand. Even if you have a special nozzle for a food processor, after 2-3 minutes you need to work independently.
  • The approximate time of manual kneading is 5-10 minutes, the exact figure depends on the recipe.
  • Do not use more flour than it should: sticking the dough at the initial stage of the dough - lack of air.
  • After kneading, the next loaf is left under a towel for several hours and pounded. This stage requires caution: repainting - light movements that release oxygen. If you knead hard with your hands, the bread will be heavy.
  • After chipping and molding, the proofing stage begins again - a short but obligatory one. It ends when, with a slight pressure of a finger, the dough quickly returns to its shape.

At what temperature to bake

Professionals assure that home baking requires a very powerful oven, and for bread this is especially true. The Italian recipes are very demanding of this parameter, but even the Borodinsky familiar to the Russian person will ask for at least 200 degrees. The optimum baking temperature is from 230 to 250 degrees. In this case, the oven is heated in advance for 40-60 minutes.

Is it difficult to bake such a product directly to you, you can find out just by trying to do it at least once. The following recipes are suitable even for inexperienced hostesses, although some of the options can cause some difficulties - especially with homemade sourdough. Secrets of professionals and detailed photos of the most important steps will help to cope with them.

Nutritionists call such a product one of the most useful, along with whole-grain. If a person cannot do without bread at all, but wants to harm his health to a minimum, he should eat products made from rye flour. Baking can be based on sourdough, yeast, malt. How to cook homemade rye bread in the oven? Carefully study the technology below.

  • yogurt - 200 ml,
  • live yeast - 20 g,
  • sugar - 1 tbsp. l.,
  • rye and wheat flour - 250 g each,
  • salt - 1 tbsp. l.,
  • vegetable oil - 1 tbsp. l

  1. Make a brew by mixing sugar with yogurt and adding live yeast, which you need to stretch a little with a spoon. Cover the container with a towel, let its contents stand - if it is warm in the kitchen, an hour is enough.
  2. When the dough comes, sprinkle in small portions of pre-sifted and mixed flour: so it is evenly distributed among themselves. Stir with your hands - it is safer.
  3. Enter salt, vegetable oil. For 5-6 minutes with your hands, knead the dough diligently until it independently becomes an elastic clod.
  4. A new stage of proofing under the towel will take 2-3 hours, after which you need to give the dough the shape of a large thick loaf and again forget about it for half an hour.
  5. Oven to warm to 230 degrees, bake for 40-45 minutes.

No yeast

One of the ways not to use yeast is to make sourdough, but there are so many difficulties with it that housewives are looking for options on how to make bread without yeast in the oven easier. There is a solution - work with soda and whey or kefir. For better fermentation, it is recommended to use “gray” flour, i.e. Grade 2, or add a little whole grain, half-sweet or rye.

  • serum - 350 ml
  • flour - 600 g,
  • soda - 1 tsp,
  • seeds - a handful,
  • salt - pinch,
  • bran - 1 tbsp. l

  1. Mix loose products separately, gently pour whey.
  2. If when kneading dough strongly sticks to the spoon, add a little more flour.
  3. Form a large loaf, let stand for half an hour on the baking sheet.
  4. Oven at 240 degrees for 18-20 minutes.

Diet baking of this type also exists, but is determined not by caloric content, but by the absence of yeast. It is well stored, and in structure and taste is not inferior to the classic options. This unleavened bread on kefir in the oven will appeal to lovers of white loaves - it is very similar to them, even has some aroma and taste of unsweetened muffin.

  • kefir - glass
  • wheat flour - 2 glasses,
  • soda - 1/2 tsp,
  • salt - 1 tsp,
  • sugar - 2 tsp,
  • sunflower oil - 1 tbsp. l

  1. Sift flour, mix with soda, sugar and salt.

  4. Add butter, knead for another minute. Leave for an hour.
  5. To knead, form a thick high loaf. Make cuts.
  6. After a half-hour proofing oven on a baking sheet with parchment for half an hour at 190 degrees.

On sourdough

This method of preparation was used for black Darnitsky bread, which was considered very useful. However, working with sourdough is difficult: it is prepared for several days, daily “feeding” a new portion of flour with warm water. The ideal leaven has the smell of rotting grass and a porous structure. If the flavor is weak, half of the volume should be discarded and the amount of flour with water similar to the original one should be added.

  • rye peeled - 540 g,
  • wheat flour - 200 g,
  • warm water - 380 ml,
  • salt - 7 g

  1. Combine 65 g of rye flour and water, let stand for 2 days in a warm place (27-29 degrees). Add the same amount of flour with water, leave for another 2 days under the same conditions.
  2. Throw away half the sourdough, combine the rest with 115 g of rye flour and 65 g of water - this will be brew.
  3. Insist it for 3-4 hours at 30 degrees, after increasing the volume, pour sifted flour (whole), salt, pour the remaining water.
  4. Knead a homogeneous dough, then work with it for another 2 minutes. Cover with a towel, let go for an hour at 30 degrees.
  5. To process the form from the inside with oil, fill with rye dough. Top align. Let stand 1.5-2 hours.
  6. Baking is carried out at 250 degrees. After 15 minutes, the temperature is lowered to 220 degrees. Cooking time - an hour.

The most delicious bread for most people is white, made from high-grade flour, with the addition of milk and butter. It has a soft crumb, a crispy crust and an incredible aroma of fresh homemade pastries.

  • water - 150 ml
