Here's what you need to get started on your bread-making adventure.

300g all-purpose flour (approximately 2 ⅓ cups)

30g granulated sugar (2 tablespoons)

4g salt (⅔ teaspoon)

10g dry yeast (2 ¼ teaspoons)

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

200ml lukewarm milk (just under 1 cup)

One egg for egg wash (for brushing the loaf)


Mixing the Dough

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, dry yeast, vegetable oil, and lukewarm milk. Stir until the mixture is well combined and forms a dough.


Move the dough to a floured work surface. Knead it for roughly 10 minutes, or until it feels smooth and elastic.

Shaping the Dough

Shape your dough into a ball. Then, with a rolling pin, flatten it into an oval shape. Roll the dough up tight, folding in the ends as you go. Stop once you have about 4 inches of dough left unrolled.

Cutting and Rolling

With a dough cutter, section the remaining unrolled dough into even strips. Finish the roll, making sure to securely tuck in the strips.


Set the loaf on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Cover the loaf with a kitchen towel and let it rise for around 30 minutes, or until its size has roughly doubled.

Preparing the Oven

Heat your oven to 390°F (200°C).

Egg Wash

Give the loaf a generous brushing with your egg wash.


Bake it in the oven for 25 minutes, or until the top turns a lovely shade of golden brown and your kitchen fills with a mouthwatering scent.


Once done, take it out of the oven and allow it to cool for a bit.

Enjoy the satisfaction of baking your own bread at home with this simple recipe. Whether you're a seasoned baker or trying your hand at bread making for the first time, you'll love the taste and texture of this homemade bread.
