Perfect Thanksgiving Bread in Minutes


Want to astound your friends at Thanksgiving with your legendary baking skills?  Held back by the fact that you have no such skills?  I’m here to help!


I ran into this recipe on Pinterest and was intrigued.  However, I tend to live in mysterious intrigue with Pinterest and never actually, you know, make anything that I’ve so cleverly pinned on my boards.  So, looking for a good, crusty bread for family dinner, I remembered this recipe and gave her a whirl.


Oh my.  So good.  So, so good and twice as easy.  Four ingredients.  No proofing yeast.  No kneading dough. Lots of opportunity for fun modifications.  Total prep time is less than five minutes (but the dough does need to sit overnight – so plan ahead.)




Here’s the blog where I found the recipe.  I’ve made it three times now and the only changes that I’ve made from the original are adding just a pinch more salt and reducing my oven temperature to 425 rather than 450 (I also like a shake of sea salt on top, just before baking.)   But let me stress: no matter what your cooking aptitude, you cannot mess this up.  However, if you do mess this up, I would love to hear about it so I stop calling this a fail proof recipe.



Here comes turkey day,

Kathy Joyner - What a great recipe find… I have NEVER been able to make bread that did not come out like a rock! I had a bread machine once— broke never replaced. Easier to go to the store and buy it but it does not taste as good. Eager to try this soon especially with differen flavors.
