Easy Oven Bread Recipe

I have been getting into breadmaking using a breadmaker, but I met a lady at one of my cheesmaking demonstrations and she gave me this recipe for easy oven bread.  This works out at less than $1 a loaf, so its better value than even the cheapest bread and the quality is much better.

  1. Thanks Lyn, will definitely be giving this a try.

    • I have been making this for the past week now, mixing it together at night and then baking in the morning ready for breakfast. So happy with how it has been turning out! My husband and I have four children aged 3 – 8 years, and would easily go through a store bought loaf of bread each day. I now have my pan size sorted, and because my bread is turning out slightly more dense than a ‘normal’ toast bread (more like vogels) the kids don’t need as much to fill them up. And I worked out the ingredients only cost me $0.71 per loaf! Thank you!

      • Fantastic Sarah – I am so proud of you. Would I be able to repost your positive feedback on my FB page – I can do it named or anonymous or not at all – your call. Thank you.

        • That’s fine Lyn, just Sarah would be ok. Thank you for the inspiration!

          • Lovely thanks so much and keep up the good work XOX.

  2. Does this mean put bread into a cold oven or preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius before popping in?

    • Yes into cold oven then turn on as instructed.

  3. Can you put seeds etc in it or don’t mess with it 🙂

    • No definitely put seeds in it – mess with it – it will be all good.

  4. It doesn’t mention needing? I assume ‘mix’ means need need. Most breads are about 10min needing. Is that about right?

    • This bread recipe does not require kneading – just mix and shape the bread into a ball as instructed.

  5. Can you put spices and fruit into this bread?

    • Try it – it would be lovely.

  6. Could I use wholemeal or other flour eg spelt or a combination?

    • Certainly. Combination would be better than all spelt…. 1 cup of spelt and the balance of ‘something else’ would be best.

  7. Would this working with gluten free flour

    • Unsure – I have some GF flour so I will have a play.

  8. I found it much too sticky when I did it only with white flour. I’ve done half and half with wholemeal and it’s much better. any other ideas for flour combinations? I love it! So easy and yummy 🙂 and cheap!!!

    • Try adding a cup of Spelt flour. I also have a rye mix but I was given it so unsure where to buy???

  9. I’ve been making this a few weeks. Adding different nuts, flours etc. Only problem is we gobble it up so fast that I have to only make it every few days as we were gaining weight.
    I use 1/2 cup sour dough starter. Adds flavour. No need to buy yeast (which I think you’ll like. And food for gut health. Easy as just keep in fridge and feed it a little flour and water every few days.

    • sounds fantastic.
