Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day
I think I'm late to the party on this one. I have been hearing little blurbs about 5 minute artisan bread recipes, and then noticed several books all in a row on the subject at Borders. I have been in the mood to bake bread, so today I googled "5 minute bread recipe". I came up with this one and it turned out great!
I don't think that I quite understood the instructions for shaping the dough. My loaf ended up an odd shape, after rising further in the oven. I think next time I will shape it into more of an oval before baking. It has a great crusty outer layer with a soft and yummy interior. I will definitely be making this recipe again. I did half of the recipe as written, so I have enough dough left for one more loaf. However, as small as my loaf turned out I think I could have done a full recipe and made it into two loaves instead of the four that it call for. Happy baking!
