Homemade Bread Day The Homemade Bread Day is celebrated on November 17. This food-related holiday is the perfect occasion to try your hand at baking tasty bread.

Bread is a staple food that is considered to be one of humanity's oldest prepared foods. It is prepared from a wheat-flour dough that is usually cultured with yeast, though unleavened bread also exists. Bread can be made of wheat, rye, barley, maize, oats, and their combinations.

To celebrate the Homemade Bread Day, bake a loaf of bread. Freshly baked homemade bread will fill your house with delicious aroma and provide comfort and warmth, which are so needed on gloomy days of November. How to make a basic yeast bread?

In a large bowl, dissolve 1/4 ounce active dry yeast in 2 1/4 cups warm water. Add 3 tbs sugar, 2 tbs canola oil, 1 tbs salt, and 3 cups all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in about 3 or 4 cups flour to form a soft dough.

Turn the dough onto a floured surface and knead until elastic and smooth. Place in a greased bowl. Turn once to grease the top, cover, and put in a warm place to rise until doubled. Punch down, turn onto a floured surface, divide in half.

Place each half in a greased loaf pan, cover and let rise until doubled. Bake at 375 °F until golden browned. Cool on a wire rack.
