Looking for an easy yeast bread to make with your soup dinner? This one bakes in an 8x8 pan and is ready in less than an hour!

Winter time brings two things into my kitchen: homemade soups and homemade bread. Especially this easy yeast bread. While I love both of those things, the bread always throws me off.

Sometimes the bread comes out fantastic. Fluffy, light, with a great crumb and sturdy enough for sandwiches. Other times, well, it doesn’t. Bread is temperamental, y’all!

Over the years I’ve collected super easy yeast pan bread recipes, and this one tops them all. It’s a great one for busy weeknight dinners and pairs well with any soup of the week. The biggest bonus: this easy yeast pan bread is made in an 8×8 baking pan. No loaf pans needed!

What Is Yeast Bread (In A Pan)?

Yeast pan bread is somewhat of a quick bread, except it does use yeast. I’m sure you’ve had quick bread before. If you’re a biscuit fan, this isn’t new to you.

The unique part of this bread is the baking tool. The ingredients are easy to mix together, and the yeast bread rises and bakes in the same pan. So easy.

Make Ahead Of Time

Yes, you can make this bread ahead of time. You can mix it up the day before, let it rise, then cover with plastic wrap or a tea towel and place it in the fridge. Once you’re ready to bake, take the bread out of the fridge, pre-heat the oven, and let the bread warm up to room temperature while you prepare the other parts of your meal.

Soup Is The Best Partner

Now, this yeast pan bread goes well with just about everything. Heck, I’ve even made it for Thanksgiving. But, you just can’t beat a bowl of soup with this yeast pan bread.

We love to pair it with our black bean soup recipe. Slurp. Yum. Need another soup to go with this easy yeast pan bread? Try Cream of Carrot Soup!

Easy Yeast Bread (In A Pan)

serves 6

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 packet of yeast
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk, warmed
1/4 cup oil
1 large egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Combine flour, sugar, yeast and salt in a large bowl and mix together.
In a smaller bowl, mix together the milk (should be warm to the touch but not hot), oil, and beaten egg.
Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until well-incorporated. It should be the consistency of cake batter.
Pour bread mixture into a well-grease 8×8 glass dish. If using a metal dish, turn oven down to 375 degrees. Set the pan aside, covered with a dish towel, and let the dough rise for 15 to 20 minutes.
Bake bread for 20 minutes, or until it reaches a deep golden brown. Check for doneness by inserting a butter knife into the middle. If it comes out clean, the bread is done. Slice into 12 delicious squares and enjoy!
