I wanted to make an "everyday" bread that was easy to make since alot of us don't have the time to be baking bread! The first recipe I tried was called "Easy Everyday Bread". Throw all the ingredients in a bowl, let it rise in the fridge overnight and bake it the next day. Sounds simple enough.
The measurements were totally off and I got something similar to a batter.
Recipe #2 was more of a traditional method. The dough was more workable and had a nice rise. It did not rise anymore than what you see here.
My yeast was not expired and these recipes called for all-purpose flour.
This recipe is for just one loaf of bread. I was not going to make more until I was sure about this recipe. Twice bitten! This can easily be doubled for two loaves. You can visit Red Star for directions using a Bread Machine, a hand-held mixer or Food Processor method.

Try and bake a loaf on the weekend when you are not so busy. The yeast is doing all the work - not you!
