    Love to try this recipe but I only have instant yeast at the moment. Usually I just add it straight to the dry mixture before adding warm water. Have you tried this before with success on your recipe?

    Natasha, I can’t thank you enough for this bread recipe. It is so delicious and the crust is good and crisp. I’ve had to buy artisan bread at my local grocery store but not any more. I will be making this for years to come. Most breads don’t agree with me but this bread does. I have already passed this recipe on to others. I will be trying more of your recipes soon (like tomorrow, lol) Reply

    Hi Natasha, I’ve made this bread almost everyday since I started last week. Naturally, it is an instant hit in my household! I also made the 5 seed bread (I only had 3 seeds at that time but still turned out great). I’d like to use whole wheat bread in place of bread flour. Will it be the same amount as in bread flour? Reply

        Hi Natasha, thanks for your reply. I seem to have some issues with the bread having a yeast smell. My friend (who probably has a sensitive nose and taste) told me that she also tastes the yeast. What would be the reason for this? Reply

          Hi Cha, it is a yeast bread so I suppose someone with a sensitive nose will detect it but I’ve honestly never noticed that. You could let the yeast sit in the warm water initially for 5-7 minutes and maybe that would help? Reply

    Natasha, you are amazing, I just baked this bread and my family and I are in love with it. Next time I want to make two small breads and serve it next to a cheese plate.

      Hi Helen, I haven’t tried that but I think that could work. If you are dividing the dough into 2, I would divide it at step 4 and also you will have to adjust the baking time. It should bake up a little faster since the two loaves will be smaller. Reply

      Hi Tara, did you use US measuring cups – 1 1/2 cups would be equal to 12 oz in a liquid measuring cup. Also, I hope that helps to use dry ingredient measuring cups for the flour where you spoon the flour into the cup then scrape off the top with the back of a knife. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      May 2, 2017

      Hi Katie, is it possible your yeast isn’t fresh any more? It can flatten a little bit with transferring the dough before it goes into the oven but not much. If you are looking for more of the loaf shape, you definitely must try our new 5-seed dutch oven bread. It’s even easier and the method works really well :). I hope that helps! Reply

  • carol
    March 30, 2017

    Thank you for sharing this easy recipe. I tried. It was much better than other recipe that I tried before. However, the outside was very crunch and inside was quite moisture.
    I was wondering if you could give me advice make as nice as yours.

    Thank you so much in advance for your time. Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      March 31, 2017

      Hi Carol, if you cut into it while the bread is too hot, it will cause the inside of the bread to become moist and gummy as it releases steam quickly. It is best to wait to slice into it until it is room temperature or just barely barely warm. I hope that helps! Reply

  • Tatyana
    March 30, 2017

    Hi Natasha!

    Your website is amazing! Thanks for sharing all your goodness!!!

    I made the bread yesterday, and it didn’t rise. I told my hubby, and he said it needs to be warm, so he covered with a towel.

    Well, next day, I re read the directions and saw that I did 100C instead of 100F, so is that the reason you think?

    Also, when baking, I did longer than 20-25 mins, b/c was afraid it won’t be ready, and although it turned out amazing regardless, it became too dry.

    Any comments/suggestions?

    Thanks in advance! Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      March 30, 2017

      Hi Tatyana, yes that is most likely the cause of it not rising. If you heat the yeast higher than 100˚F, it will deactivate the yeast and your dough won’t rise. I hope you give it another try letting it rise at 100˚F or 38˚ Celcius. You shouldn’t have to alter the baking time as long as it rises properly and is baked with the farenheight temperature listed. Normally it is supposed to be very soft and lightly moist, but I’m glad you still enjoyed it. Reply

    Hi Natasha why do you need the hot water in the oven thanks Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      February 8, 2017

      Hi Miriam, the hot water helps for the crust to form – the moisture forms a seal on the bread and makes crisper crust. You can also use the dutch oven method for this recipe without having to put a container of water in the oven. It’s even easier. Check out my dutch oven bread tutorial here. 🙂  Reply

    Very first time attempting to make bread. Thought I’d try something that looked easy and it was! My husband doesn’t eat bread usually but loved the bread. I made it yesterday and its gone already. Had to make 2 loaves today. Mine doesn’t come out as big as yours but after reading comments, it might be the water is to warm for the yeast and I’ll pay close attention next time around.
    I love how this bread can go with everything! Savory or sweet toppings. Crust is perfect, not hard and my toddler loves it too. Thank you for the awesome recipe.

    My bread didn’t rise after the 2 hours but I followed the steps. Is that normal Reply

    • Natasha
      natashaskitchen
      March 29, 2016

      Hi Lilly, no, that is not normal. Are you certain your yeast is fresh? Also, it could be that your water was too hot. If you add hot water to yeast, it kills the yeast and your dough will not rise. This is also why it is important not to put dough into a hot oven to rise. You never want it to be more than 100°F, or you will start cooking the yeast. I hope that’s helpful for next time or for any dough recipe. Reply

      Hi Sveta, you’ll have to experiment. I think it would but the measurements of Canadian vs American all-purpose vary slightly. In my experience, you need a little less Canadian flour than all-purpose. Reply

      I think you could but I haven’t experimented with it to say for sure. I actually don’t use fresh yeast (even though I know it’s usually the best option for bread), because it has such a short life span. Sorry I can’t be more helpful! Reply

    Dear Natasha! It is amazing! Again! 🙂 After Thanksgiving turkey I was so proud of myself, but after third loaf of this bread I am even proud more and it is not like I have never cooked, however, bread was an issue. I couldn’t manage a lot of recipes, but this one worked at once! Usually, when I buy bread, it stays for 4-5 days, but this one… It is like you see it and next moment it’s gone. Bravo!
    You have been asking for suggestions about recipes. Do you happen to know nice bagel recipes (and when I am saying nice I also mean easy 🙂 )? I like them and sometimes would like to have one for breakfast/brunch on weekends. Here, in Finland, we do not have them on regular basis, only when one shop has “US days” (twice a year). Anyway, I believe homemade would be much better. Reply

    Hi Natasha, just tried this recipe today and it was very gooey too, difficult to fold. I then tried to compensate and ended with the bottom having too much flour. Mine was also flat unlike yours. I’m wondering if my water temperature had something to do with it. I didn’t have a thermometer so I used hot water from my kettle. Either way the bread was very taste and I can’t stop eating it 🙂 Reply

    This bread is so awesome! Thank you, thank you, thank you! I love making homemade bread, but I don’t like the time it takes to knead the dough, wait for it to rise, and knead it again.. Too much cleaning to do when it’s all set and done. This recipe is so awesome that I feel like I could have fresh bread served every day! My husband was so impressed with the fancy finished product 🙂

    You’re such a blessing! God bless you and your family!

    Here are my experience baking this bread two days in a row :)) It’s how good it was!

    Day1: I tried this recipe, left the bread in a bowl covered with a plastic wrap for a few hours while I was running some errands (more than 2 hours). I got home and floured the dough and transferred it to the parchment paper. I did a bunch of chores while waiting (it was more than 40 minutes for sure). Then, I baked the dough and it turned out awesome! I couldn’t stop eating it!!

    Day2: I was so excited that I started the dough in the morning using all-purpose flour. After a few hours running more errands, I got home to flour the dough, I noticed it was very gooey. I was a little hesitant about how this was going to turn out. I added a bunch more flour because the dough was sticking to my hands. I let it rise up for more than 40 minutes while I cleaned more of the house and then baked it. It was a lot flatter than my Day1 bread. I cut it this morning to try it, it was still so GOOD! It was just flatter! Reply

      I’m so happy to hear that you loved the bread recipe :). Have you tried it dipped with extra virgin olive oil, a splash of balsamic and salt & pepper. You should!! 🙂 I’m not sure why day 2 bread was more gooey than day 1 bread. Was everything else the same in how you measured the flour? My dough is usually pretty sticky before I flour it for the last rise. Reply

      • Augustine
        April 5, 2015

        I’ll have to try that dip 🙂 I love olive oil dip! I wasn’t sure whether it was the different flour I used? Day1 I used bread flour and Day2 I used all purpose flour. Did you experience differently? I mean it was still good just different dough and flatter shape when using the all purpose flour. Reply

    Natasha can i use the same recipe and use all wholegrain flour? I just got a lot of whole grain flour from canada & would like to stay more on the healthy side and use as little as possible white flower. Or let me know if you have any other recipe for wholegrain bread. Thank you Reply

      I haven’t tried this with wholegrain flour so I can’t really predict how it will affect the recipe, but I think it’s worth a test. I have another bread that is quite a bit more complicated that combines various flours. Baking is so much a science (different flours have different gluten content, etc) that it’s hard to predict without actually trying it myself. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    If I would want to add some herbs to this bread, what would you recommend? Rosemary, thyme, dill? Anything else? Reply

      I haven’t tried it personally, but several of my readers reported great results with adding crushed garlic (I’d finely mince it) and/or fresh chopped rosemary. Let me know what you end up trying! 😉 Reply

    Hi Natasha, I was wondering what factors in this recipe would make the bread not rise? I followed the recipe exact and it didn’t rise. I used the same yeast and everything. The bread still came out quite good but did not rise. Could it have been the water temp, too much mixing when combining with the flour or maybe too much flour. I tried to measure out 3 cups exact but it seemed like there was way too much flour left over. Any advice would help. Reply

      If you let the bread get too hot (like if you proof it in a warmer than 100˚F oven), you could deactivate the yeast and cause it not to rise. The other issue could be old yeast that is no longer effective. Another culprit is if your water is too hot when you add the yeast; that could also deactivate the yeast and cause it not to rise. I sure hope that helps! 🙂 What kind of measuring cup did you use – was it the dry ingredients type where you fill up the cup and then scrape off the top? Reply

        Thank you Natasha. I think it might have been the yeast for sure but I also think my measuring cups are an issue, they are very cheap and very old. I will try this again with new yeast and new measuring cups. Thank you for the suggestions Reply

      Thank you Dina for the great review! It’s true, I am a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my blog. It drives me nuts when I make mistakes :). But at the same time I’m kind of a mess maker (you should see my closet! lol). I’m strange like that. Good thing I’m married to a bitt of a clean freak :). I’m so happy you love the recipes and blog. Merry Christmas to you as well! Reply

    Hi Natasha! I tried making this bread yesterday. I didn’t have the yeast you used, only the instant kind. I tried it anyway but the result was that the bread (although yummy) was dense and chewy. I noticed that the dough didn’t rise as much as yours and during baking, it cracked open a little bit. Could this have been a result of the difference in yeast? Thank you for your help! Reply

      If everything else was the same, I’m definitely suspicious of the instant yeast. I hope you give this another try with some active dry yeast. It’s supposed to be soft and wonderful 🙂 Reply

    Natasha! First of all, I just watched your video for the first time and you are the cutest!! The bread is amazing! I only had sprouted whole wheat flour (I had invested in this pricy thing to see if it was worth getting in the future). The bread came out soo delicious. I can only imagine how divine it will taste with white flour. Additionally, this bread can’t get healthier for those who are health conscious. With the sprouted flour and few ingredients, it’s delicious and healthy. Thanks so much for such a timeless recipe!! Reply

    Hello Natasha! I’m a big fan of your site, your recipes, and your videos. I have a quick question, can I put this bread dough in a loaf pan? If so, will it affect the finished product? Thanks so much for answering in advance. Have a great day! Reply

    • Natasha

      I think it would work in a loaf pan, but you would not be able to preheat the loaf pan. Make sure if you bake it in a loaf pan, remove it from the pan right away when it comes out of the oven, so the sides of the bread do not get too moist. Reply

    Hi Natasha,

    (Random question).
    I noticed that you have a variety of aprons. They all look so pretty. Where do you get them?
    Can’t seem to find them at all, and when I finally do find them, they are pretty dull.
    Thanks. 🙂 Reply

        I watched your videos again, trying to spot ‘that’ one. I did! I like the one when you are making a chocolate cherry roll and when you are showing how to separate the egg yolk using a water bottle.
        I guess I should go on a garage sale hunt next summer. 🙂
