Homemade Bread in Five Minutes

For years, I’ve been making homemade bread for my family.

Since carbs constitute my most favorite food group, there’s nothing as yummy as steaming hot bread fresh out of the oven. Can you smell it? Is your mouth watering? How about slathered with butter?

Ok, I’ll stop. It’s mean to tempt you all, and then leave you with nothing.

Right now, most of you are thinking about how labor-intensive homemade bread can be, making it more of a special treat than a daily enjoyment.

Well, I want you to put aside any preconceived notion you have about homemade yeast bread because I am going to show you how it’s no big deal to make fresh homemade bread whenever you desire, because it only will take you about five minutes a day.


In my years of baking, I’ve often used my beloved Kitchen Aid [4]to mix up homemade French Bread [5]in minutes. It’s just so simple that I have even done a Bread making video tutoria [5]l for you all just to see how easy it is to make. Many don’t have the luxury of a mixer, but honestly, even though I do, one of the amazing things about this recipe is that you can keep the dough in the fridge for up to 2 weeks and have a new loaf on command. This quick homemade bread recipe is by far the easiest way to get fresh bread, and have it often.

Many of my friends were raving about the book, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day [6], and how it’s totally changed the way they bake bread. (Or most likely, how they made their first ever loaf of yeast bread.) There’s no kneading. No bowls to wash. And it only takes five minutes of active preparation when one wants to make a loaf of fresh bread.

I loved being able to walk my daughters through the process. It’s a perfect way to introduce anyone to the art of homemade yeast breads, and who knows, you may just decide you want to graduate onto additional recipes.

Are you ready to become famous in your own home? They will rise and call you blessed. ;)



  • Spray your knife with non-stick spray before slicing the dough to allow the knife to cut more easily.
  • You can shape the dough into any shape you’d like. We prefer to make baguettes, which also allows us to cut the resting time down to only twenty minutes. Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day gives specific directions, rest times, and bake times for different loaf shapes.
  • You can double, triple, quadruple, etc. the recipe if you have a large enough container to store the dough.
  • There’s no need to wash the container in between every batch. Once you empty the container, simply mix up another batch of dough in the same container.
  • I often use only 6 cups of flour in each batch instead of 6 1/2 as I find my dough is sometimes too dry.

With over 100, 5 minute bread recipes, this Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: The Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking [6]
book is amazing, really. With gift giving season around the corner, add in a pizza stone and baking peel and this would make an amazing gift basket.
