I don’t know about you, but that sounds like the perfect kind of recipe to me 😉

Once you have all of your wet ingredients worked in you start adding flour, two cups at a time. This is the part that can take a little practice- once you’re familiar with how the dough should feel you can use your judgement and add more flour as you need it. As a rule, this recipe takes between 7 and 8 cups of flour.

Your ball of dough should be nice and smooth without any sticky spots. This is the part where you may need to add a little extra flour, just to ensure it’s well covered and not gooey.

Make sure you keep the top of your dough ball oiled so it doesn’t dry out while it’s rising for an hour. Each time you punch your dough back down make sure the top is moist with oil. Once your dough is ready you can divide it out into rolls, loaves of bread, cinnamon buns or pizza dough. You can literally do just about anything with this versatile two hour bread recipe.

2 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tbsp sugar

Add warm water into a small bowl and stir in sugar until dissolved, then sprinkle yeast on top. Stir and leave for 10 minutes to rise.

1 1/2 cups boiling water
1/2 cup oil
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp salt


1. In a large bowl mix together oil, sugar, salt and boiling water. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs. once the water mixture has cooled, add in the whisked eggs.

2. Slowly add your yeast mixture into the large bowl of water, sugar. eggs, oil and salt.

3. Slowly add 7-8 cups of flour, two cups at a time. Use your spoon to scrape down the sides of the bowl as you add in your flour. Sprinkle counter with flour and knead dough with hands for about 5 minutes or until you have it worked into a smooth ball. The dough should not be sticky, so add the last cup of flour accordingly. It’s best to knead the dough for a few minutes at a time, letting it rest in between.

4. Add the dough to a large greased bowl and cover. Be sure to grease the top of the dough as well, to keep it from drying out. Every 15 minutes for one hour, you’ll need to punch the dough back down.

5. Divide the dough into loaves or bread or rolls. Bread should bake at 350 for 30 minutes and rolls should bake at 350 for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

I think the best part about this two hour bread recipe is that you can freeze it for up to two months and when you thaw it, it honestly tastes just as good as it did when it came out of the oven! I wish I was exaggerating, but I’m really not, I promise! When we make this recipe we usually double the batch and make a combination of bread, buns and dinner rolls. This recipe is so versatile that you can really do whatever you’d like with the dough! Sometimes we even make cinnamon buns from this homemade bread recipe!
