Truly Easy Homemade Bread

*Update as of July, 2012: This is still a delicious and easy recipe, but I have left it in the dust for a no fail, WHOLE wheat, soaked recipe from Trina Holden's Real {Fast} Food. There's no turning back! ;)*

Some time after the dawning of the salad dressing idea and making pizza from scratch, we seemed to keep running out of bread and having to make a special trip to the grocery store just for that. Once you have a baby you don't just "run out to get something" unless absolutely necessary. SO, I looked on line for bread recipes. I'd tried it before, trying to emulate the informal recipe of the dear missionaries in Peru that I spent a few summers with, but found it hard to make and there were too many ingredients to the recipe I had for it to be a simple, cheap thing.

Well, boy did I find an EASY recipe that WORKS every time! We haven't bought a loaf of bread since. Here's the link! You should try it, but warning: It's so tasty you just might try again!

I've since tried to start using whole wheat, and it turned out great...the 3rd time! I used double the yeast, started with the first two cups using whole wheat, and added about 3/4 to 1 cup white flour during kneading. It came out soft and tasty!

Scratch bread off my grocery list! There's more. Just wait!
