Whether you’re a novice or a pro, homemade bread can be intimidating. But with the right knowledge and some practice, it can become an easy go-to recipe in no time! Let’s get started.

Different Types of Breads

When it comes to homemade breads, there are many types of doughs that you can make. From classic white sandwich bread to sourdough starter, the possibilities are endless! Here are some common bread recipes that you can try:

  • White Sandwich Bread – This type of bread is a classic favorite because it’s simple and delicious. The main ingredients are all-purpose flour, yeast, sugar, salt, and butter.
  • 5-Minute Artisan Bread – If you have some time on your hands and want to make something special for National Homemade Bread Day, this recipe is for you! It involves mixing a combination of flour, water, salt and yeast overnight before baking the bread.
  • Challah – This egg-based soft bread is perfect for holidays like Hanukkah or Christmas. It requires only six ingredients—all-purpose flour, active dry yeast, salt, eggs, sugar and oil—but takes quite a bit of kneading time (around 10 minutes). Be sure to give it plenty of TLC!
  • Focaccia – Focaccia is an Italian flatbread that has become popular around the world. To make this delicious treat at home you will need all-purpose flour, active dry yeast, olive oil, sugar (or honey), salt, chopped rosemary (optional), garlic powder (optional)and warm water (105°F – 115°F). Once it’s baked in the oven for about 25 minutes your focaccia will be ready to enjoy!
  • Pita Bread – Pita bread is relatively easy to make at home once you understand the basics. You will need all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour (or a combination of both!), instant yeast, lukewarm water, salt, honey (or sugar). After kneading the dough for about 10 minutes let it rise until doubled in size then bake in the oven or the stovetop until golden brown!

Baking homemade bread may seem like a daunting task but with these tips and tricks you’ll be baking like a pro in no time! So grab your rolling pin and celebrate National Homemade Bread Day by making one of these delicious recipes from scratch. Bon Appetit!
