Primary Prep, Ingredients & Nutritional Info

Start with: 1 cup very warm water (115°-125°F), 1/4 cup vegetable oil

Directions: If using a bread machine, add the following ingredients according to your bread machine owner’s guide. Use the basic cycle. Bread cycles less than 2 hours will affect flavor, texture and volume and are not recommended.

Traditional Bread Directions

  1. // PLACE 1 cup warm water, yeast (enclosed) and bread mix in large bowl. Stir until blended. Dough will be sticky.
  2. // KNEAD dough on a lightly floured surface 5-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in a lightly greased bowl turning dough to coat on all sides.
  3. // LET RISE covered, in a warm place until double in size (about 1 hour). Punch dough down.
  4. // SHAPE & BAKE Place in a greased 8½x4½x2½-inch loaf pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size (about 45 minutes). Bake in preheated 400°F oven for 25-30 minutes.


  1. // PLACE 1 1/4 cups warm water, yeast (enclosed) and bread mix in large bowl. Stir until moistened. (No kneading necessary.) Dough will be wet and sticky.
  2. // LET RISE covered, in a warm place until double in size (about 2 hours).
  3. // SPRINKLE 4 tablespoons flour on surface and along sides of dough to reduce sticking. Gently pull the dough away from sides of bowl. Lift dough and place on a greased baking sheet. Gently pat edges to shape.
  4. // REST DOUGH uncovered, for 40 minutes. After resting, dust top of loaf with flour. Using a serrated knife, cut a ¼ inch deep cross into top of dough. (This will allow steam to escape during the baking process.)
  5. // BAKE in preheated 450°F oven for 21-23 minutes or until crust is dark brown and firm to the touch.
