Ms. Audrey’s Homemade Bread


This is one of the recipes that I simply love – saving a heritage recipe for future generations. The submitter, Veronica, stood behind her husband’s mother, Ms. Audrey, and measured the ingredients before the Ms. Audrey “threw it and mixed it her bowl”.

In memory of Ms Audrey Bourque


  • 2 cups lukewarm water
  • 1 packet of Fleishman’s rapid rise yeast
  • 1 tbsp cooking oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 1/2 cup room temp flour


Step 1

In cup, mix 2 cups of lukewarm water and 1 packet of Fleischmann's rapid rise yeast, mix well

Step 2

Add 1 tbsp of cooking oil and ½ tsp salt to cup, mix well

Step 3

Coat large bowl with oil then dust with flour to keep dough from sticking

Step 4

Add 2 cups of room temp flour and ingredients mixed in cup to bowl, mix well

Step 5

Add another 2 cups of flour, mix well. Add another ½ cup of flour, mix well.

Step 6

Add 1/2 cup ingredients & mix well until flour is dough consistency

Step 7

Knead dough well but do not over mix. If dough is sticky, there is not enough flour.

Step 8

In large bowl, dust with flour, add dough to bowl and oil top of dough (just enough oil so dough does not dry out). Cover with clean towel, place in “warm” area for 2 hours so dough can rise.

Step 9

Once dough has risen for 2 hours, oil pan that bread will be baked in.

Step 10

Put oil on hands and on dough to keep from sticking then make medium size dough balls and place in pan, put oil on hands as needed.

Step 11

Cover again and let rise for another 2 hours in pan, don’t forget to oil top of dough.

Step 12

After 2 hours, turn oven to 250, place bread inside oven for 2 minutes.

Step 13

After 2 minutes, turn oven to 400 & bake bread for 45 minutes to 1 hour
