Simply Homemade

About a month ago I saw something on sale at our local grocery story that I thought would be a good thing to try out.   It was a bread mix that requires no kneading and promises to be done in less than an hour.  It cost $2.38.  

 
Last week I made soup for supper and thought some "homemade" bread would taste good with it.
It comes with a flour mix, a small envelope of yeast and a small envelope of sugar.  You start by stirring the yeast with some warm water and adding the sugar.  After waiting a few minutes for it to start foaming, you stir in the flour mix, then turn it out onto a cookie sheet, cover and let it rise for 25 minutes.  It doesn't double in size but does rise a little, then it's baked for 25 minutes.
 


 
Here's the finished product!  It really was done in less than an hour - about 55 minutes.  It had a crispy crust and a soft center.  We thought it was really good and I'll be getting it again.

Hot creamy soup and homemade bread...it's a perfect combination. But, for me, I'd eliminate the sugar. I don't care for sweet bread unless it's a cinnamon roll. ;-)

That looks like something even I could make and not ruin! Will check it out at the next run to the grocery. Thanks for recommending it.

That looks very yummy

Yes, they work well. We like them too. You can also look in your frozen food aisle. We get a bag of frozen bread. It takes 6-7 hours for it to rise and it only takes 20-25 min for it bake. Well worth the $3 for 8 loaves. blessings

I love making bread. The smell alone makes me happy :)

Hi Mari! Well, I am Irish, and you know we love our bread! This looks terrific. And I agree with Sola Scripture. The smell alone would be AMAZING.
Soup and bread sounds good for today, it's 5 degrees. BRRR. This has been a really cold winter.
Happy Tuesday,
Ceil

I saw this during my last visit to the market, I wondered how it was. Always good to hear a good report, I think I'll buy some next time I shop, nothing like homemade bread!

Your bread and soup on a snowy day sounds delightful. I should do the same.

Looks and sounds awesome. The easier (and the breadier) it is, the more I like it. Only problem: I'll want to eat the whole loaf. Alone.
