What is that, Stuff…..Well….

A lot of you mentioned that it was some kind of yeasty substance and well, yes, it is but it is so much more than that! It’s a pregnant women’s dream come true! 5 minute bread that you don’t even have to knead! Take some water and add a little salt, sugar and yeast. Stir in flour until the mixture gets somewhat stiff and that’s about it. Let it rise for a couple hours and then you can store it in your fridge for a couple weeks (or use immediately) and then just saw off a hunk of it whenever you have a craving for homemade bread. Flour the dough lightly and toss it in the oven and that’s it (it’s a tad wet, okay sometimes quite wet, and a different texture then what you’d be used to from traditional bread but it cooks up just as nicely). If you are feeling creative them you can indeed add whatever you would like to the mix as well and make all sorts of shapes of loaves (I do knead the bread a small (really small) bit to incorporate whatever I want to add just before I toss it in the oven). So simple and such a relief as a couple weeks ago I was thinking I might have to give up homemade bread because working to knead the bread was making me feel light headed and short of breath!

Here are this week’s creations…

Focaccia, cinnamon buns, maple flax breakfast bread and a loaf of white bread all from that goop in a big ol’ pot!

    Hey Katrina,We've just started doing 5 minute bread, too!! Isn't it awesome?? I bake a small loaf every night for supper. I LOVE homemade bread but DO NOT love kneading. lol. And my bread machine just wasn't making very nice bread. This was the answer to my prayers! AND Bruce and the kids ordered me the healthy version of the book for my birthday… Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I can't wait to get it!Hope you're doing well. Won't be much longer, now!Alissa

    OH, and do you also know it makes great pizza dough???? I used to make homemade pizza dough for pizza every Friday, but I figured out I could just lop off a piece of 5 minute dough and it did the trick!

  3. I love it! I don't have any book to follow so I kind of wing it. It has worked out for the most part so I am happy. I will have to give it a try for pizza dough (that is not something we eat often but the kids love it). We have to get together soon!
