5+ Homemade Bread Recipes with Yeast

Bread does not have to be intimidating! These easy yeast bread recipes are simple and perfect for beginners! Each will call for either active dry yeast or instant yeast.

  • Active Dry Yeast- The most common yeast used in bread making. Active yeast will need to be proofed, or dissolved in a small amount of warm water, before it is added to the rest of the ingredients. This activates the yeast and allows it to work its magic while your bread is baking.
  • Instant Yeast- Instant yeast is very similar to active dry. The biggest difference is that it is milled into a finer particle. That makes it able to dissolve and activate without the need to proof. You can mix this directly into the dry ingredients.
