Fabulous Homemade Bread


This bread really is fabulous.  It’s my favorite recipe for baking a bunch of loaves for freezing.

Of course, we eat one loaf straight from the oven.  Ya just can’t help it.

You can buy bread bags with ties from Walmart for a couple bucks.  I let my loaves cool, then go ahead and place each one in a bag with tie, then freeze.  Simply set on counter to thaw, then use as normal.


You DO have butter, right?

Now.  Time to get your bake on!

Get ready for your kitchen to be invaded!  You won’t have to say a word.  The wonderful aroma of fresh-baked bread will draw all of your children away from their favorite activities asking for a slice…..and for butter.  I really hope you have butter.



  1. Thanks so much!!

  2. Thanks! I’m ready to try it now! I just need some flour! =)

  3. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! I just printed out the recipe for this and also the granola bars. I know what I am doing this weekend! Yum!

  4. I made this bread last weekend and it is fantastic!! I gave two loaves away and kept the rest for us. Delicious! Thank you, Brandy!

  5. You are so very welcome, my friends! 🙂

  6. I’m going to try this recipe for a change 🙂 I’ve been making bread several times a week for several years now, and grinding wheat, too, as it costs even less than flour! My family of 10 love the homemade bread though I still get the “can we have storebought bread?” often. Sigh.

  7. Looking forward to trying this soon. I also grind out wheat and am always looking for a good bread recipe. Thanks!

  8. I made this REALLY fabulous bread this past weekend and wow!!! we loved it… instead of 10 cups of unbleached flour… I used 06 of bread flour and 04 of WHITE whole wheat… it was wonderful… loved this recipe!! it’s going to be my go to recipe now!!!

    thank you so much for sharing. 🙂

  9. Quick oats or regular? I’m about to make it here…using quick oats. Hope that’s OK. Will have my laptop in the kitchen! lol

  10. Do not have a dough hook or mixer, and at this rate, will probably never be able to afford one. I guess I will just have to modify. Thanks for the recipe….

  11. What kind of mixer do you have? I have a Kitchen Aide 4.5qt. I don’t think it will hold that much flour. I wonder if I could half the recipe and end up w/ 3 loaves instead?

    • I have a regular sized kitchen aide, but sure could use an industrial one sometimes. 🙂 I only mix the first round or two of dough, and then have to transfer everything to a huge metal bowl on the counter. 🙂

  12. @ Regina- I used to have a 4.5 qt. mixer and I did halve this recipe and it came out to be more like 2 loaves (if I remember right).

  13. Could I use whole wheat flour for all the flour? I use only whole white wheat flour. I can hardly wait to try this! Thank you

    • Sure can! I have found that my grainmill can grind a fine enough flour that whole white wheat flour works just as well, if not better! 🙂

  14. We do not use vegetable oil. Could I sub in olive oil? Also, what kind of oats? Regular or quick cook?

    • I would use coconut oil, preferably the green label from Tropical Traditions. 🙂 I always use regular oats. 🙂

    Do you know what setting it would be on a bread machine?

  16. Maria Camacho says:

    Stupid question…. You cook each loaf separately for 30 min, or can you bake 3 at once for 30 minutes?

  17. This looks wonderful! I’m gluten free right now for autoimmune thyroid disease, but my little ones eat a sandwich nearly every day. I can’t wait to make this for them! As soon as we get our new freezer delivered, I’m going to make these up. I don’t have a stand mixer so plan to do it by hand. Is it exhausting? I don’t have much arm strength right now – might recruit my sister to help. 😉 Thanks for the recipe!
