That bread recipe, the super easy, no Knead is a winner in my book. The bread is really a treat. I have a big cannister in the refrigerator. Hmm.. this one “fell”. It rose up, but then it fell. However, it bakes out good.. rises and the bread is GOOD. I calculate about 30-40 cents a loaf, even when using packet yeast. Six cups of flour, 2 packets of yeast make about 2-3 small loaves of bread. I make them in those little foil bread tins that you get at Aldi, and I use the same tins over and over again.
This seems a lot of trouble, but to me, this is gourmet bread. Very rich, heavy, sweet and yeasty. It’s good! I put about 1/4 cup of 7-up in the loaf, and I put a heaping tablespoon of brown sugar in there. I guess that is what makes it sweet, and I like that way. It is a very “tasty” bread.
Mine still is not perfect, but hey, it’s close enough for me! This bread goes good with butter, honey, and cinnamon. It has that yeasty taste that I have been aiming for.
The dough will keep 3 weeks, the author claims. I just grab a hunk off, and put it in the oven for dinner, takes 30 minutes to bake.
