1 Hour Bread
Prep time

Cook time

Total time



  • 5¼ cups of bread flour
  • 3 tb sugar, honey, or agave
  • 1½ ts salt
  • 1½ rounded tb of instant saf yeast
  • 2 cups hot tap water
  • 1½ tb canola oil

  1. In your first bowl, sift in your flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
  2. In your second bowl, combine your oil and water.
  3. Using your stand mixer, fitted with its hook attachment, spoon in half your dry mixture. Turn it on.
  4. Slowly drizzle in half your wet mixture. Repeat.
  5. Allow your machine to knead the dough for about 5 minutes.
  6. When it’s ready, spray (or oil) your work surface with cooking spray/oil.
  7. Dump out your dough and hand knead it for a bit until it’s even smoother and elastic.
  8. Divide your lump into two loaves and roughy shape it either into a log or disc.
  9. It’s important to score the tops (dip a sharp knife into water and drag an “X” over the top of each loaf).
  10. Cover loosely with a kitchen towel, place them in a non-drafty area and allow them to rise for 25 minutes.
  11. After they’ve risen, pop into a 350 oven and bake for another 25 minutes.
  12. When they’re done, brush on some butter and enjoy with my 5 minute raspberry jam.
