Making Bread By Myself For the First Time Ever

This is my first time baking on my own, let alone bread. So hopefully making bread will go well cause I have no idea what I’m doing. I’m pretty lazy in following instructions cause it seems very slow to measure everything and all that. But apparently, baking needs to be really precise so we’ll see how this goes.

It Seems Like a Lot of Effort But Not Overwhelming

I like this video cause it’s a quick 5 minutes even though the entire process seems to be ~4hours. Which seems way too long for my attention span but it’s like an active 40 minutes and the rest is just chilling so I’m going to be mowing the lawn in between.

I’ll simplify this recipe later on. But these are the words I used to describe everything in my head so I can remember everything. So here’s something for you to look at until I clean up the instructions.

Qiong | The easiest and cheapest bread recipe

Trying out Qiong Cooking's (YouTube) Simple and cheap bread recipe. I've never baked on my own before and wanted to eat bread so we're giving this a go!
Prep Time 40 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Resting Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Course Breakfast
Cuisine Chinese
Servings 1 Loaf


  • 1 Mixing Bowl
  • 1 Set of Measuring Cups
  • 1 Bread Oven Tin


Mixed with Water

  • 200 ml Water
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp yeast

Thicken the Dough

  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp olive oil


Setup Your Dough (10 min prep + 20 min rest)

  • Mix up the water (200 ml), sugar (2 tbsp) and yeast (1 tsp)
  • Once everything looks pretty clear we can dash in the flour (2 cups) and salt (1/2 tsp)
  • This'll thicken the mixture and look kinda splotchy so add 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • Cover it and let this rest for 20 minutes

Mix it Down, Round it up (5 min mix + 60 min rest)

  • I think to let the mixture work in a bit more just mix it in by stretching it out inside the bowl and folding it in to round it up to make sure all the ingredeients get mixed in well
  • Cover it and let it rest for another hour

Flour The Ting

  • Laydown a layer of flour on your mat or table
  • Dump the dough outta the bowl and sprinkle some flour on top
  • Pat it down to get the air out and flatten the dough
  • Fold it into thirds twice to round it out into a lil ball

Split It Up Into Three Balls (Mix 10 min + Chill 15 min)

  • Cut the round dough ball into three
  • Massage the dough and roll it into a ball (three times)
  • Cover it and let it chill for 15 minutes

Make It Smooth by Rolling It Out Again (Roll 15 min + Chill 50 min)

  • Flour the mat and the top of a ball
  • Flatten and roll it out on both sides
  • Fold it in length wise in thirds
  • Flip it and roll it out
  • Flip it and make one end super thin
  • Roll it like a puffy sleeping bag and put it in the tray (three times)
  • Cover that and let it rest for 50 min

Bake the Bread! (30min @ 340 F)

  • The dough should rise now so hopefully you had a decent sized tin and preheat the oven to 340F
  • Put the bread in for 25-30 minutes
  • Take it out and hit it on the counter to loosen the bread so you can take it out!
  • Put it on a cooling rack and you're good to go!
