Joanna Gaines' 3-Minute Bread Recipe: The Easiest Homemade Bread Ever

Posts about Joanna Gaines' three-minute bread recipe have been making their rounds on social media. If you enjoy baking homemade bread and have a bread machine, it's almost impossible to resist making this easy bread.

The homemade bread has just six simple ingredients: bread flour, water, sugar, vegetable oil, salt and bread machine yeast. This truly is a dump-and-go recipe. Dump all the ingredients into the bread machine, set to "basic" and push start. Done. In about three hours you will have a hot loaf of slightly sweet white bread to enjoy.

This bread recipe calls for bread machine yeast, not regular active dry yeast. The difference? Regular yeast must be proofed with warm water before using. Bread machine yeast, on the other hand, can be mixed directly into the other ingredients without proofing in water.

If you don't like too much sweetness in your bread, Joanna suggests reducing the sugar to about 1/4 cup. Serve this bread with butter for dinner, jelly or jam for breakfast, or slice it and use for sandwiches.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 3 minutes
Cook Time: 3 hours
Total Time: 3 hours and 3 minutes
Servings: Makes 1 loaf


  • 3 cups bread flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) bread machine yeast

Here's how to make it:

  1. Put all the ingredients into the bread machine.
  2. Set the bread machine to "Basic" and push start.

Well, isn't that amazing?! Now I need to go and get myself a bread machine. So easy, wow!
Sorry, but the title of this recipe is quite deceiving! Perhaps should have been called "3 Minute Prep Time Bread". Nevertheless, I suppose I'll have to get out the bread maker - the one I've had sitting there, brand new, in the box, for the last 10 months, and give it a try!
Donna John
Ha! Yes. Joanna named the recipe, not me. :-) Get that bread maker out of that box!
Yeah, Donna John .I really should. Maybe tomorrow...but then, I've been saying that for months. Maybe this recipe is the inspiration to it! 🤞
