happyditty! bake my day bread 1


  • happyditty! bake my day bread 25 tsp dry active yeast
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 1 cup warm water (+ 1/2 cup spare in case you need it later)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-2 tsp salt (depending on preference – I like less salt, personally)
  • 2 1/4 cups of Bake My Day Flour


  • Grease 9″x5″ loaf pan (butter or spray is fine)
  • Pre-heat oven to 375F once dough is rising
  • Add yeast and sugar to warm water in a stand mixer bowl. Let stand until very foamy (10-15 minutes)
  • Add eggs, flour, and salt to yeast mixture and mix with paddle or hook attachment for 5-7 minutes. The dough WILL be wet looking, and not like a standard dough.
  • If you find it is too dry, add spare water, 1/8 cup at a time, until you get to the proper consistency. This may take a bit of trial and error.
  • Pour into loaf pan, spread evenly on top, and let sit and rise for 30-45 minutes. The longer the better. While this will not look like traditional bread dough, the ‘rising’ process is still essential.
  • Bake on top rack for 35-40 minutes, take out and brush top with melted butter, and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes. This helps with the browning process as much as possible.
  • Remove from oven, let cool for 5 minutes before removing from pan.
  • Once you remove it from the pan, let sit until reasonable cool for cutting. Slicing loaves upside down can help with more even and nice looking slices.

Tips / Reminders

  • GF bread is best served warm or toasted. This is wonderful for grilled sandwiches, as well as making homemade croutons, or fresh breadcrumbs for baking.
  • The breadcrumbs are ideal for things like toppings for homemade macaroni and cheese, or to use in the coating process for homemade GF onion rings.
  • Store in a sealed container, making sure to check for too much moisture. Lasts for 2-3 days when properly stored.
