So, getting rid of my leavening for the Days of Unleavened Bread is generally a very easy thing. I get rid of my baking powder, baking soda, and yeast, and that’s pretty much all she wrote. But this year at the last minute I found a brand-new bag of self-rising flour hiding under a pile of dry goods.
Yes, I could have just thrown it away (it’s like $2), but that felt weird, so I looked up recipes that would use it in large quantities. I saw several crazy easy recipes for beer bread, and was instantly sold.
It’s beer, sugar, and self-rising flour. It literally doesn’t get easier than that. I added garlic, parsley, and cheddar because—duh.
Throw some melted butter on the top in the last few minutes of cooking, and you have a yeasty, cheesy, moist, dense treat.READ THE POST
You know those times when you realize that you’re having a bunch of people over and that you forgot to figure out a bread? But you’re like an hour from dinner and pretty much everything would take way too long?
(yeah, me neither)
Lucky for me, I’ve found a couple of pretty quick bread recipes that are pretty quick (and aren’t just biscuits). I have this 1-hour focaccia bread and a 1-hour french bread, but this goes even further. You can have this thing done start to finish in about a half hour (give or take a few minutes depending on how long it takes to bake). And the flavor is AMAZING!
This is a key part of bread making…
Bread is a non-negotiable part of meals for my mom, so super happy to have another great recipe in the arsenal.READ THE POST
