“Whatever” Bread

Super easy delicious homemade bread baked in two glass bowls

• 4 cups flour

• 2 tsp salt

• 2 cups lukewarm water

• 2 tsp sugar

• 2 tsp active dry yeast

suggested ingredients: seeds, nuts, raisins, cooked oats, quinoa, savory spices (like rosemary and oregano)- anything! You choose! In this one I used chia, pumpkin and flax seeds, hemp hearts, and almond slivers

Mix the sugar and warm water together and sprinkle the yeast on top.

In a bowl, mix flour and salt together.

Once yeast becomes frothy in the water, stir it and add it to the flour mixture. Mix it all together until it becomes a ball. Cover it in damp rag and let it sit for about an hour.

While the dough is rising, prepare two pyrex or tempered glass nesting bowls by greasing the entire inside using soft butter.

After rising, punch dough down and divide into 2 balls. Preheat the oven to 425°. It’ll be a bit sticky- make sure to get as much dough off the bowl as possible as you seperate and transfer each half to their greased bowls. I give the dough a bit of a swish to create a nice roundness. Rise the dough in the greased bowls on the stovetop, uncovered, for another 20 minutes.

Bake at 425° for 15 minutes, reduce baking temp to 350° and bake for an additional 15- 18 minutes until golden. You should be able to dump the bread right out of the bowls onto a cooling rack.

Sometimes I take them out of the bowl and place them directly on the oven rack to get them a little more golden and crusty.

And that’s “Whatever” Bread! Enjoy and Happy Homesteading! Xx
