Miracle One Hour White Bread. Homemade bread made in one hour. Quick and easy homemade bread.

Miracle One Hour White Bread is a homemade, made-from-scratch bread recipe made in one hour.

There’s nothing quite like homemade baked bread. I recently discovered that making homemade bread doesn’t have to be a long, time-consuming process. It can actually be easy! You can actually make delicious homemade bread in no time at all. It is a miracle!

I told you about my darling friend, Stephanie’s daughter, Hayley, who is quite the cook like her Mom.  She put together a cookbook of her family recipes and this is one of them. I wondered if you could truly make bread in less than one hour and was convinced after trying this recipe. I love that my kids can even make this bread and use it for their lunches at school.

I am sharing tips and tricks on how you can make homemade bread at home in 60 minutes.  You are going to impress some people big time!

Tips for making Miracle One Hour Homemade White Bread:

  1.  Let your YEAST PROOF.  The key is to use very warm water (about 110 degrees). Adding sugar to the yeast helps it proof even faster. Let the yeast proof for at least 5 minutes. Remember to always use fresh yeast. You will know the yeast is working when it starts to form a creamy foam on the surface.
  2. Use BREAD FLOUR. Bread Flour has a higher gluten and protein content so it will create a chewier and allows the bread to rise even higher.
  3. Use a STAND MIXER. This bread recipe is easiest with a stand mixer such as a Bosch mixer. You can find a good deal on a Bosch mixer, by clicking HERE. This is a huge time saver as you knead the bread for 5 minutes in the mixer. It saves you from doing it yourself! If you don’t own a stand mixer, you can knead the bread dough by hand.
  4. Let RISE in a WARM PLACE. This expedites the rising process. If you live in a very cold climate, you can always set the oven to about 200 degrees and let the bread rise for approximately 20 minutes or until double in size. Here are my favorite loaf pans.
  5. BAKE until GOLDEN BROWN. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and bake until golden on the outside. Remove from oven and spread butter over top of loaves to give moisture and shine.

* Once you remove the hot homemade bread from the oven, remove from pans and spread with butter and jam.

Miracle One Hour Homemade White Bread Recipe is perfect made-from-scratch bread in no time at all.
Prep Time: 35 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour
Servings: 20


  • 2 cups Very Warm Water
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoon heaping Instant Yeast
  • 1/4 cup Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons Oil
  • 4 3/4 - 5 1/4 cups White Bread Flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Salt


  • Place warm water in large mixing bowl. Add yeast and stir. Stir in sugar and let proof (start to form a creamy foam) for 5 minutes.
  • Add oil, flour, and salt. Begin by adding half of the flour. Start to mix using the dough hook. Add remaining flour until dough pulls away from sides of mixing bowl. Using Bosch or Kitchenaid, knead for 5 minutes at medium-high speed. If you don't own a stand mixer, you can knead by hand.

  • Place oil on hands and shape into two bread loaves. Spray loaf pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden.
  • Once bread is done, remove from oven and spread butter all over warm loaves. Let cool for several minutes before removing from pan.
  • Spread butter and jam or honey on warm bread.

    I made this as loaves, hand shaped on cookie sheets and they were great! Then I divided another batch into 11 equal weighed portions and filled them with pulled pork. Baked them around 20 minutes. They were amazing! And even after storing the leftovers in the fridge, 60 seconds in the microwave they were still amazing! Can’t wait to try a few more things with this dough!

    I LOVE this bread. I add fresh herbs and garlic from my garden to it. It’s so good and so easy. My family and friends really love it.
    I can’t get the top to be beautifully rounded but even a little wavy it tastes amazing and is fluffy and perfect.

    This is an awesome recipe! The first time I made it I did a second rise in the pans for 30 minutes. It turned out soft and delicious! The next time I did not do a second rise (in other words followed the instructions!) and it still turned out great! I split the dough in half and made a big pan of cinnamon rolls with the other half! Delicious!

    Has anyone turned this recipe into dinner roles? I love it as a loaf but looking to shake things up

  5. I would love to try this bread. I have SAF instant yeast. Will that work? I thought I could only mix it with the dry ingredients.

    Does ANYONE know what size breadpan you use, and after you put the dough in the pans, is there a second rise? The author has been asked by several people but won’t respond!!

    1. I use standard 9X5 loaf bread pans and no second rise. I’ve made it twice now, and the bread has come out perfectly. I did need an extra five minutes in the oven to get it to golden brown.

  7. Looove this recipe. Very easy, but my loaves always seem to split on the sides. I use all the floor thinking it was too moist(originally I didnt use quite all of it) , my yeast is good sits for five minutes to proof before adding flour, oil, and salt..????Anyone out there have suggestions?

    1. Loaves split when the oven heat makes them rise quickly. Try slashing the top of the loaves just prior to putting them in the oven to make a place for the dough to “spring” when the heat of the oven hits them.

    I’ve been making many different bread recipes over the years- but forgot to start my dough early enough and searched Pinterest for a faster rise bread recipe when I came across this one. I divided the recipe and only made 1 loaf, but after eating it, I regretted it. This one is delicious! My family loved it. I printed it to put with out family favorite recipes. Thanks for sharing!!

    I made this last night and it turned out perfect and delicious! I used self rising flour because it’s what I had and it was fine. Thank you!
