Lesson #110: Bread for Busy People

Do you love fresh baked bread? Do you not have much time to make it? I've found the perfect recipe for you :) It's quick, easy, and doesn't require a special mixer. If you have 5 minutes to mix up and gather ingredients, then you have time to make this bread.

Here's the lowdown on how to do it. Gather flour, yeast, salt, and lukewarm water. Mix these together in a bowl just until combined. Loosely cover the bread and let it rise for 2 hours. If you aren't going to bake it right away, cover it and place it in the refrigerator up to two weeks. When you are ready to bake it, grab a handful of dough, shape it, and let it sit on the counter while preheating the oven. Finally, you bake it and let it cool.

The recipe makes enough for 4 large loaves, so you could mix it up on the weekend and have fresh-baked bread during the week with dinner. If you want rolls, make smaller loaves and cook them for less time. If you want whole-wheat bread, substitute some of the white flour for whole wheat. It's really that SIMPLE! Check out the results below.

LESSON LEARNED: This bread tastes even better after the dough has been refrigerated for a few days. The flavor develops to become slightly tangy.
