  • 1 TBSP yeast
  • 1/4 cup very warm water
  • 2 TBSP sugar
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 2 TBSP vegetable oil
  • 3- 3.5 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt


  • Combine yeast, warm water & sugar in mixing bowl. Stir gently once, then let sit until yeast has proofed & mixture is foamy.
  • Heat sour cream in microwave for 30 seconds. Add to yeast mixture, along with the egg and vegetable oil. Mix for about 1 minute before adding in flour and salt and then mixing until dough comes together.  I like about a quarter sized amount of dough to be sticking on the very bottom. If your dough looks a bit dry, add 1 TBSP warm water. Once you've achieved a good consistency, mix the dough on low for about 6-7 minutes. (Or knead by hand about 10 minutes.) Proper kneading is critical to great textured homemade bread!
  • Once dough is done kneading, cover and let rise in a warm place for about 1 hour; until dough has doubled in size.
  • Punch dough down and knead several times. Shape dough (I like to roll mine, then tuck the ends under) and place in a greased bread loaf pan. Place dough back in the warm spot and let it rise for another 30-45 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Bake dough for about 30-35 minutes, until top is golden brown & internal temp in the center of the loaf registers 200°F. Let cool and slice.
