I have a recipe that I use just about every other day. I will go find it and post it for you.

Get a bread machine, dump in the ingredients, set it, and forget it.

With a bread machine? If not then I find that dough mixed by hand tastes better then by machine!

I'll try DIY first then graduate to the bread machine

Bread machines work just as well as doing it by hand. So that's always an option. Making it by hand can be a little time consuming and messy, especially when you're starting out and haven't figured out the most efficient way that works for you. Also, it's best to start out with very simple recipes. Once you make one and it turns out good you might be like AW YISSSS and will want to try out every recipe you find. It's always best to perfect the basics, because not every single loaf will turn out perfectly. Sometimes it's too humid in the room, sometimes the ingredients are a little old, etc. It's really rewarding though :)

4 moms liked this
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
2 tblsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
(Mix these together)
Add 2tblsp oil or margarine
And 4 cups of flour
( you can use all purpose, wheat or bread flour)

Mix to make dough smooth and elastic. Let it rise.
Bake at 350 until golden brown and hollow sounding when tapped on the bottom.

I usually just throw this in my bread machine. It's easy and so yummy!

Are you using a bread maker or an oven?

Its pretty easy, it just takes awhile to rise sometimes. I recommend quick rise yeast.

Irish soda bread is pretty quick and good. Just add a little sugar in the mix if the recipe doesn't call for it. My grandma made home made bread all the time, wish someone would have gotten the recipe
