Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1 1/2 cups of the flour and yeast in the container of a blender. Cover and pulse until mixed. Measure the milk, shortening, sugar and salt into a saucepan. Warm over low heat until the shortening is melted. Remove from the heat and cool until just barely warm to the touch. Pour this into the blender with the flour. Add the egg; blend on the lowest setting to mix.

  • Pour the blended mixture into a bowl, and stir in enough flour to make a moderately stiff dough. Cover with a towel and let rise until doubled in size, about 45 minutes.

  • Punch down the dough and turn out of the bowl onto a lightly floured surface. Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan while you allow the dough to rest for a few minutes. Shape the dough into a loaf and place into the pan. Let rise again until double in size, 30 to 40 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Bake the loaf until deep golden brown, 40 to 45 minutes.

I really like how this bread turned out, and it was super easy. A bit dense, but a little while after making it I got sick with the flu, and this makes great toast and was very easy to keep down. All the other recipes I found require a bread maker, which I don't have, so I was very happy to find such a easy recipe that doesn't require a bread maker. Definitely going to start using this bread instead of buying store made bread. Read More

I must have done something wrong. The loaf turned out like an adobe brick. I’ve never had any luck when trying to make bread. This recipe was so easy any simple I thought for sure this time but no. I must be cursed when it comes to making bread. Read More

The flavor texture and appearance was excellent and no KNEADING! Yeah! One caveat...I think the cook time is waaaay too long. I took it out at 30 minutes and it was very brown and definitely done. Maybe my oven temp is not accurate but I think I even could have taken it out at 25 minutes. Thanks for an excellent recipe. Read More

This was my first attempt at baking bread and it turned out pretty good. I will probably let it rise longer so it isn't quite as dense but the taste is great and my husband actually wants to use this bread to make his sandwiches. I figured out the cost to be around 1.50 for one loaf. I will probably grease the top (brush with oil) before it goes in the oven next time so its not so clumpy on top. Thank you for this recipe! I can save a lot of money by baking it myself. Read More

I doubled this to make a loaf of bread and rolls. Very easy bread and makes a very basic white bread. Good as rolls or sandwich bread. Bakes up beautifully as well. I baked the rolls for 20 minutes in a 350 degree oven and they browned perfectly; the bread was done in 40 minutes at the same temperature. Thanks for the recipe! Read More
