I’ve long wanted to learn how to make bread. I have memories of a special older woman from my childhood who would work hard all day at making multiple loaves of bread for me and her family. I was mesmerized and loved watching her. And the smell, oh the smell! Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread!
Even though my skills in the kitchen have greatly improved in my adult years, I was always so intimidated with the idea of making bread. It looked so hard. And it takes so long.
My family has recently started the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University plan and we are now on a tight budget for the next few months while we tackle our debt. One of the things we go through fast is bread. I figured this was the perfect time to learn how to make bread. Not only would I learn a new skill, but it would help our finances.
For the past 2 weeks, I’ve tried a few new bread recipes. I will share with you my two favourites. They are extremely simple to make and very tasty.
The first one is an artisan bread that you can find here from www.itsalwaysautumn.com. They say it’s the easiest bread ever, and they mean it! My 12 year old son made his first loaf this weekend and it turned out beautifully. He’s very proud of himself for being able to make his favourite treat: fresh bread. It’s as simple as mixing 4 ingredients together, leaving it to rise overnight and then putting it in the oven in the morning. Done! And delicious! I urge you to give it a try. You won’t regret it.
The second bread recipe I want to share with you is a recipe for hamburger and hot dog buns. I actually have a batch in my oven as I’m typing! I tried another recipe last week, and while it was good, I wanted better. This, my fellow readers, is the best! It’s incredibly simple and quick to make and tastes delicious. Why go to the store and buy some buns when you can make your own for a fraction of the price? Also, what my husband and I like about making our own, is that we can add herbs and spices if we want to. This recipe uses onion powder (yum!) and I’d like to try adding some rosemary and parmesan cheese next time. Here is where you can print the recipe from nourishingjoy.com.
Go ahead, print these recipes and try them out. Let me know what you think.
Does it not look A-MA-ZING???
