The word “bread” is thought to have originated from the Old English word “bred,” which means “fragment.” This is likely due to the fact that bread was often made in small, individual pieces rather than one large loaf.

How To Easily Make Everything Bread?
There are a few things you need to know before you start making everything bread.
- First, you need to choose the right flour. Bread flour is a type of wheat flour that has a high protein content, which gives the bread a chewy texture. All-purpose flour can also be used, but it will result in a lighter and fluffier bread.
- Second, you may want to choose the right leavening agent. Yeast is the most common type of leavening agent used in bread baking, but you can also use baking powder or baking soda.
- Third, you have to knead the dough properly. Kneading helps to develop the gluten in the flour, which gives the bread its structure.
- Fourth, you must let the dough rise in a warm place until it doubles in size. This allows the yeast to work its magic and gives the bread a light and airy texture.
- And lastly, bake the bread until it is golden brown and cooked through. This usually takes about 30 minutes.
Now that you know all of this, let’s get started!
- 1 cup bread flour
- 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of everything bread seasoning
- In a large bowl, whisk together the bread flour, yeast, salt, and everything bread seasoning.
- Add 1/2 cup of warm water and stir until the dough comes together.
- Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes.
- Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Punch down the dough and shape it into a loaf. Place on a greased baking sheet and let rise for another 30 minutes.
- Bake the bread for 30 minutes, or until golden brown.
- Let cool on a wire rack before slicing and serving.
- If you want to make a sweeter bread, you can add 2 tablespoons of sugar to the dough. You can also add 1/2 cup of raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped nuts to the dough.
- In case you want a crunchier bread, you can brush the top of the loaf with an egg wash before baking.
- Assuming that you want to freeze the bread, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and store it in the freezer for up to 3 months. Thaw at room temperature before slicing and serving
