Have you always thought about baking bread? I love the book Bread and Wine by Shauna Niequist. She really gets you excited about cooking for your people! My friend Tanya at The Other Side of the Road blog posted this recipe from http://www.homegrowntraditions.com and I am here to tell you that I have made it twice and plan to make it until my supplies run out. I had trouble finding flour at the grocery about a week ago. A tip is to try Walgreen’s or CVS because they have baking supplies. Of course, try not to go out if you can help it and you may already have these items at home.
Here we go!
3 cups all purpose flour
2 tsp. active dry yeast (this is not quite a full packet of yeast if you buy it by the packet)
1 tsp. kosher salt
1 and 1/2 cups warm water
Mix together with a wooden spoon and over with a tea towel or plastic wrap for 2 hours
After two hours preheat oven to 450
Place a pyrex dish with water in the oven (I forgot one time and it didn’t matter so I will probably skip this step)
Shape your dough into two round loaves and score the top with a knife (Simply make slits in the dough)
I had to add more flour to be able to work with my dough but I found it very relaxing.
Bake for 18-20 minutes.
It really is best eaten right away. Thank you Tanya and Homegrown Traditions!
