Notes and Tips

Here are some tips and tricks to prepare this easy homemade bread recipe perfectly:

Water temperature: Make sure the warm water used for the dough is at a suitable temperature to activate the yeast. It should be between 98.6-113°F. If the water is too hot, it can kill the yeast, and if it is too cold, the yeast will not be activated.

Fermentation time: Make sure the dough has enough time to ferment before being baked. This is achieved by letting it rest in a warm place for about 45 minutes until it doubles in size.

Proper kneading: Knead the dough energetically and for about 5 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. This will help to develop the structure of the bread and improve its taste and texture.

Bake at the right time: Do not bake the bread until it has doubled in size. If you bake it earlier, the bread will not have the correct texture.

Adjust the amount of water: The amount of water can vary depending on the ambient humidity and the quality of the flour. If the dough feels too dry, add a little more warm water until you get a smooth dough.

Vary the flavor: If you wish, you can add fresh herbs or spices to the dough before baking them to vary the taste of the bread. For example, you can add chopped garlic, rosemary, or olive oil.

By following these tips and tricks, you will be able to prepare perfect and easy homemade bread every time. Enjoy your meal!
