Easy Home made Bread (Agege Bread)

agege bread recipe

I finally nailed Agege bread recipe. If you think bread- making is a hard job, then think again. This is a fool proof method I found here. I tweaked the recipe a bit, I have made this twice now and I tell you nothing beats home made bread. The lovely aroma coming out of the kitchen oven would blow your mind away. This is the easiest method to make Nigerian styled Agege bread. You can use wholemeal flour, and adjust the amount of sugar you use for this recipe. I will update you as soon as I nail the Naija type.

agege bread recipe

What you will need

500g strong bread flour or strong plain flour, more for dusting

25g butter (substitute with 2tbsp olive/vegetable oil)

40g sugar (use less or more)

7g fast action dried yeast

280ml warm water

1tsp salt

1 egg for egg wash (optional)

Tips

To make warm water for this recipe, use 100ml of boiling water then add 180ml cold water to make lukewarm water.

Don’t worry when you mix your dough and it is sticky, when making bread, the wetter the dough the better.

You don’t need to activate your yeast if you are using fast-action dried yeast

Method

Melt butter and add to 280ml warm water

In a shallow bowl, add all dry ingredients and mix together

Stir butter and warm water mixture into the dry ingredients

Put sticky dough onto a lightly floured plain surface/ worktop and knead for 5 minutes. Add more flour if needed but don’t add too much. Knead till dough is no longer sticky but stretchy.

easy-bread3

Oil or butter a loaf tin and put the dough in the tin making sure all areas are covered

Cover with clean kitchen towel or use a big plastic bag to cover the dough and leave to proof for an hour or more till the dough doubles in size/ fill the size of the tin

easy-bread4

Preheat oven at 200 degrees

Egg wash bread if you choose (I did because I wanted a shinning finishing)

Bake bread for 30-35 minutes until the top is golden brown

easy-bread5 My lil one approved too…

  7. Thanks for this recipe. It was so easy and turned out right. Just wondering why in other recipe’s for bread they proof twice? i.e after first rise they punch it down and then allow to rise again, but you didn’t do this.

  11. What is the baking alternative in the absence of an oven?

     
  12. Hi Ajoke, Just so you know, ive been on a 6 year quest in search of THAT agege bread recipe, but nothing comes close to the real deal, so far at least. I am never discouraged to give any new recipe a try, which is why im here. Just to clarify, You said to Preheat Oven at 200 but didnt specify degree C or F, can you tell me which? I dont want to assume.😜.

    Thanks in advance!

     
  13. Hi namesake, how do I use this recipe with a breadmaker, because I have one . Thanks you

     
    • Hi namesake, I don’t use a bread maker but I’m sure it should be easy. Follow the instruction on your bread maker manual. also, I have not tried making bread with almond flour before. Sorry I couldn’t be of much help. Thanks for stopping

       
  14. Also if am using almond flour, how do I substitute it

     
  15. Amazing omg I made it today. I am n medical school and I wanted a break. Thanks for this recipe. How can I send you a picture?

     
  16. I would like to make this but I don’t have a scale. Pls is it possible to give the measurements in cups and tablespoons. Thanks in advance😉

     
  17. I cant seem to find either strong bread flour or strong plain flour anywhere. Can i use the regular bread flour or all purpose flour for this?

     
  18. I will surely try this out. Thanks for making it so easy. Would get back to you

     
  19. Well explained, keep up the good work. I also publish on the impact of Nafdac and food making in Nigeria and other health matters

  20. My bread turned hard, I use a fan assisted oven, would you kindly give me some tips on how I can do this better next time?

     
    • Sorry to hear about the bread Stacey, one the many things I can think of is maybe you added too much flour when kneading your dough or maybe you didn’t knead the dough enough
