Homemade Bread in 5 minutes… March 6, 2010

Sounds kind of fishy, doesn’t it?  Well, I’ve tried it and it’s true!  All that needs to be done is mix water, yeast, salt and flour one day – which takes about 5 minutes, let it rise 2 hours or so and leave it in your fridge until you’re ready to bake some homemade bread! 

On baking day, the hands on work takes just about 5 minutes while the rising, oven reheating and cooling obviously takes longer than that.  But my husband and I were impressed with the outcome.  I used the master recipe from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes A Day, which you can find here along with other great tips and recipes throughout the site.  (Check out that Cinnamon Swirl French Toast, I think the Brioche is going to be my next 5-minute dough I’ll attempt so I can make some of this french toast.)

I have a lot of experimenting and messing around to do yet.  The two loaves I’ve made so far I haven’t dusted the ‘pizza paddle’ (cookie sheet) enough so it ended up sticking when trying to gently slid it in the oven – I ended up with odd-shaped loaves.  They also ended up a bit more moist then I expected, possibly due to the screwup with the pizza paddle sticking.  So, even though we were impressed and enjoyed every bite of the bread with dinner, I still feel I can improve with my 5-minute a day bread making skills.
