To Bread or Not to Bread? This Easy Bread Recipe by Sonya from Berlin Says a Big Yes!

To bread or not to bread, must have been an imposing question in your head during this quarantine. What’s interesting is the fact that even those who have never baked in their life, are braving this thought as well 🙂 Some say it is an art, some say it is precision science – and for some, it is pure passion. As for most of us, it is a daily stable that we sometimes like to ‘French toast‘ it up!

So if you are up for the challenge to figure out the science and the art of bread-making, well, your time is here. Our new friend Sonya – a mom and a passionate baker from Berlin, is here to share a simple bread recipe to get you started. Happy baking!

Ingredients for Sonya’s Bread Recipe

Steps for preparation:

  • Put the flour, oil, and milk in a bowl, then mix the yeast with the sugar and also add the mixture into the bowl, after that add in the salt.
  • Slowly add in the lukewarm water and thoroughly knead the dough until it becomes a soft and smooth dough – almost sticky.
  • Cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap and let it rest for about an hour
  • Form 7-8 balls out of the dough and “open” them with a little flour with your fingers until you get the typical flatbread form. Then let them rest again for about 20-30 minutes.

Baking the bread:

  • Put them in a preheated Arabic oven, a regular oven also works fine – on 220°C
  • Get them out of the oven when they are golden brown, then brush them with the butter and enjoy your homemade bread!
