I promised some friends a very basic and plain bread recipe after posting some bread pictures on Facebook.This recipe is suitable for people who have never tried baking bread at home. It is a very basic, simple, plain bread recipe so anyone can get it done.  Sincerely, nothing beats the smell of fresh homemade bread! The aroma fills your home in a very splendid aromizing way. This basic homemade bread has been saving my family for as long as I can remember. It is for this reason that I have become an unreliable customer to my former bakeries (sorry guys).

Now a few things to take note while making bread; this could be the reason you have not succeeded till now:

-Make sure to proof the yeast that way you are sure it is active.

-Your milk/water should not be too hot, bear in mind that the yeasts are alive and can’t survive very high temperatures.

-Do not leave bread to over-rise; 3 hours, for instance, is too much rising time.

-It is important to follow the measurements for great results. Defaulters often end up with very hard bread. I am sure you do not want that! Me neither.

-Your first attempt may not be a huge success, do not panic, try again. The beauty about homemade bread is that you perfect your act with time. So just keep baking and baking till you know your way around
