This is one of those things that just has to be shared! I was browsing websites the other day when I came across one that said Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I have no idea what artisan means but I was going to try it!
Seriously! This bread is sooooo easy and sooooo yummy! And it really does only take five minutes of your time. Of course you have to let it rise and bake it but that isn't really taking up your time.
Mmmmm! Doesn't that look goooood!??
All you need is water, yeast, salt and flour. And a container to keep it in. There is no kneading the dough. You simply pour the water, salt and yeast in to your container and then add the flour and mix until it is wet. Leave it sit for two hours to rise and then you can refrigerate it for up to two weeks.
When you want to make some bread you just take out some of the dough, leave it sit for forty minutes and then bake it for a half hour.
Easy peasy people! Mike says it's easier than what he makes in the bread machine! And it's good. I kid you not! It will be great for sandwiches, with soup, as a snack. Mmmmm. Our problem with other breads is that they never wanted to slice nice. This does.
There is a book with I'm guessing is more ways to make this bread. I have it on hold at the library and hope to be able to pick it up today... once the ice out there melts. You can click here to get a step-by-step photo tutorial on making the bread.
I'm going to make some toast!
