How to make delicious bread in a commercial oven?

To make delicious bread using a commercial oven, here are detailed steps:


  1. High-gluten flour: Typically, high-gluten flour is used as it contains more protein, resulting in a chewier bread texture.
  2. Water: Use warm water, approximately 100°F (38°C).
  3. Yeast: Active dry yeast or fresh yeast.
  4. Sugar: Granulated sugar or honey.
  5. Salt: Regular table salt is fine.
  6. Vegetable oil: Such as olive oil or vegetable oil.
  7. Bread improver (optional): Vitamin C powder or bread improver can enhance the bread's texture.
  8. Other additives (optional): Such as dried fruits, nuts, seeds, etc., to add texture and flavor.


  1. Preparation:
    • Ensure the commercial oven is clean and has accurate temperature control.
    • Preheat the oven to the appropriate temperature, usually 400°F (200°C).
    • Prepare a large mixing bowl for dough.
    • Have a rubber spatula, dough scraper, dough hook (optional), baking tray, and parchment paper ready.
  2. Mix the Dough:
    • In a large bowl, mix high-gluten flour, sugar, salt, and yeast.
    • Gradually add warm water and vegetable oil while stirring until a sticky dough forms.
    • If using a bread improver, add it now following the package instructions.
  3. Knead the Dough:
    • Turn the dough out onto a clean surface and knead it by hand for about 10-15 minutes until it becomes soft, smooth, and elastic.
    • If the dough is too sticky, you can add a little more flour while kneading.
  4. First Proofing:
    • Place the dough back in the large bowl, cover it with a damp towel or plastic wrap.
    • Let it rest in a warm, draft-free place for the first proofing, typically 1-2 hours or until the dough has roughly doubled in size.
  5. Shaping and Second Proofing:
    • Remove the dough, gently deflate it, and shape it into your desired form.
    • Place the shaped dough on parchment paper and cover it with a damp towel.
    • Continue proofing for about 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  6. Preheat the Oven:
    • During the last 15-20 minutes of the second proofing, preheat the commercial oven to 400°F (200°C).
  7. Baking:
    • Place the proofed dough into the preheated commercial oven.
    • Baking time varies depending on the bread size and type, typically 20-30 minutes, or until the bread is golden brown and sounds hollow when tapped.
    • If you're concerned about the bread browning too quickly, you can cover it with foil for the first 15 minutes and then continue baking.
  8. Cooling:
    • Once the bread is baked, immediately remove it from the oven and place it on a rack to cool.
    • Allow the bread to cool completely to retain its moisture.
  9. Enjoy:
    • Once the bread is fully cooled, you can slice it and enjoy your delicious homemade bread!

Please note that making bread takes some practice and patience, so don't get discouraged. Multiple attempts will help improve your bread-making skills. Good luck with creating delicious bread!
