Bread in only five minutes!!!!



My Daughter called me one day and said she was baking bread...ok...Only costs 50 cents a loaf to make. Ok...

She sent me the recipe and I tried it. OHMIGAWD!!! YUMMY!!!

Only I used a package of yeast that I had sitting around in a drawer and it did not rise. So I added more water, flour and NEW yeast to the old batch...Are you all old enough to remember the I LOVE LUCY episode where she is making bread and she puts it into the oven and it opens the oven door and floods the kitchen with bread dough? Yeah, that was my bowl of dough! I had to scrape it off the counter and put it into TWO more bowls to get it all in the fridge where it was sposed to stay until I was ready to bake it.

I waited until the next day when I had time, and then pulled out enough to make one loaf! It was so good that even Bob came over on a Wednesday to have a piece! He ended up taking a loaf home, we ate a loaf, and I finished baking the rest so I can start with new dough today.

It makes the best sandwiches! I put a few slices of deli roast beef and meunster cheese and horeradish on it and it was as good as any deli sandwich you could have...could have used some sprouts though.


Aren't I getting to be miss susie homemaker?

I love making bread (and eating it).

We have a bread machine which is the easy way to do it and I love the homemade bread. I am always amazed when I go into a store now to see the price for a loaf there. I used to do it the hard way with kneading and did enjoy it but it took more time than throwing it in the machine and forgetting it. The machine we have now properly shapes it as a regular loaf with the beating holes on the bottom of the loaf; so it looks perfect

Well, are you going to share that recipe, or is it a secret?
Homemade is so much better than store-bought, isn't it?!

Just this afternoon my hubby asked me if he thought baking bread at home would be cheaper and I thought it certainly would be better tasting. Like Jazzi I am waiting for the recipe.

That looks so good Mary Lou...and I'm such a bread person. I've never made bread from scratch, but I've eaten plenty of it.
