Miracle Bread (1 hour bread)

I love bread! I openly admit this. I may be a carboholic but without any desire to quit. This bread is another great find from my friend Pinterest. I'll be honest this bread isn't my absolute favorite (honestly I don't know which recipe would be). I love trying new recipes. I try new ones most of the time I make bread. This bread is good. I enjoyed eating it. I will definitely make it again. The reason that it is miracle bread is because start to finish it is done in an hour! There are many times that I want homemade bread, but don't have 2-3 hours to make it and let it rise. An hour though? I usually have an hour. This bread is very simple to make. So for all of you/us that don't have time (or patience) to make our most favorite type of bread I think this recipe comes in quite nicely as a backup. Like I said I will make this bread again and I'm really excited about it!

**Note: if you are making this in a KitchenAid, halve the recipe and make 2 loaves of bread.**

Miracle Bread

10 1/2 c. white bread flour
1/2 c. sugar
1 T. salt
3 rounded tablespoons saf-instant yeast
3 T. liquid lecithin (I didn't have lecithin, so I used 1/3 c. oil)
4 c. hot tap water

Mix dry ingredients. Add lecithin (or oil) and water. Mix for 1 minute and check consistency. If dough is too dry, add a little more water. Dough should be very sticky. Mix for 5 minutes. (Do not add flour to the dough after it has finished mixing.) Spray counter and pans with Pam. Shape loaves, place in pans and cover with a dish towel. Let rise 25 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.

Makes 4 loaves.

For whole wheat bread, use the same recipe only with whole wheat flour; replace one cup of the hot water with applesauce, and add 1 additional tablespoon lecithin(again I used oil). Mix for ten minutes.

I'm kinda dumb when it comes to photoshop. I'm really good at cropping images but not too much more than that. I was playing around with some filters on photoshop and I thought I would share this version of the photo with you. It is just awesome that it can take a photo and turn it into something that looks so different.


  1. This did not work at all for me as the recipe goes. It was runny and went absolutly everywhere when it rose. The second time I used less yeast and way more flour and it did just fine.

  2. This looks so nice, I like a 'proper' bread that eats like bread and not a bread that's airy fairy. Thanks so much :0)
