Hi moms! I’m back with another recipe for your home kitchen. This one is a basic high-altitude bread recipe that will work in any kitchen no matter the altitude. It’s easy to make and tastes delicious too! Let’s get started!

prep: 25 mins cook: 30 mins additional: 1 hr 40 mins total: 1 hr 95 mins Servings: 8 Yield: 1 loaf


ΒΌ cup coconut oil, melted

2 teaspoons active dry yeast

1 cup warm water (100 degrees F/40 degrees C)

1 tablespoon white sugar

1 teaspoon salt

3 cups bread flour


Combine water and yeast and let sit until foamy, about 10 minutes.

Combine flour, coconut oil, sugar, salt, and yeast mixture in a bowl. Knead until silky-smooth, about 15 minutes. Place dough in a large, lightly-oiled bowl and turn to coat. Cover with a towel and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a loaf pan.

Punch down dough and turn onto a lightly floured surface. Shape into a loaf and place into the prepared pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 30 minutes.

Uncover and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes for an Italian-style loaf or 45 minutes for a sandwich-style bread.
