Welcome to the Ultimate Guide to Making Homemade Bread! Get ready to learn the secrets to creating delicious bread from scratch.

2.

First things first, gather your ingredients. You'll need flour, yeast, salt, sugar, and water. Don't forget a mixing bowl and a baking pan.

3.

Mix the flour, yeast, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Slowly add in the water and mix until a dough forms. Knead the dough for 10 minutes.

4.

Let the dough rise in a warm place for an hour. Once it has doubled in size, punch it down and shape it into a loaf. Place it in a greased pan.

5.

Preheat your oven to 375°F. Let the dough rise for another 30 minutes while the oven heats up. This will give your bread a nice rise.

6.

Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes, or until it is golden brown on top. You can test if it's done by tapping the bottom - it should sound hollow.

7.

Once it's done, take the bread out of the oven and let it cool for 10 minutes. Then, remove it from the pan and let it cool completely.

Congratulations, you've made homemade bread! Now it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor. Slice it up and serve it with your favorite toppings.
