Homemade Bread Recipes with Yeast

Sharing today, 20 of my tested homemade bread recipes with yeast that I often bake at home. Highly recommend to try my favorite Italian Ciabatta Rolls and Bialy Bagels. 

I'm passionate for baking fresh bread at home. Whenever time permits, I love to get my hands dirty, spend sometime kneading yeasted dough. All effort is rewarded with the aroma of fresh yeast fermented bread baking in the oven. For the record, I target to devour the fresh out of oven bread with cup of tea by the evening. That's always the goal. ;)

Over years, I have learned with experience a few tricks to bake bread quickly and bake soft bread at home. Here are my top 5 favorite tips:

  1. Make Soft Dough: The secret to soft yeast bread is in consistency and kneading of the dough. Always mix enough water to make soft slightly sticky dough. Resist the temptation to add more flour. It will become easy to work with after dough is kneading for sometime.
  2. Knead Well: Knead dough as instructed in the recipe. At the minimum there should be no streaks of dry flour.
  3. Handle Risen Dough Gently: The risen dough is full of air pockets due to yeast fermentation. It should be shaped with delicate touch to retain as many air pockets as possible. These air pockets will result in soft and lite baked bread.
  4. Reuse Fermented Dough: If you have Biga (sourdough starter), you can make any yeast bread without fresh yeast. If the ratio of starter to flour is 1:5, it will work like regular yeast and bread will not be sour.  So please don't make an extra trip to store for yeast. 
  5. Quick No-Oven Yeast Breads: There are a few yeast breads which you can cook without oven such as flat breads - Naan and Pita Bread. These are also good to make sandwiches, wraps, or to scoop sauce.

I make a big batch of Italian Ciabatta Rolls and freeze. These are good for lunch sandwiches and also great for breakfast with smear of cream cheese.

Pin this collection as I'll be adding more recipes to this collection this baking season.

Happy Baking!
