Simple Yeast Bread Recipe

You know the days your just not organised? Well this often happens and we run out of bread. I like to make sourdough however you must have your starter ready to go. Needless to say I have a back plan on the days we need a loaf of bread.

This loaf of bread is easily thrown together and develops quickly. Anything that can be made first thing in the morning and baked before lunch is a winner for me.

Do you have a Plan B recipe?

  1. We make virtually all of our own bread these days. Usually one with whole wheat, but sometimes just with regular flour too. Don’t do much sourdough — we should. But we’d be more than satisfied with this recipe! Really nice — thanks.
