Easy Peasy Peasant Bread

My BFF and her husband came through town a couple weeks ago. Since we were making food at home for dinner, I decided to make this peasant bread that I saw on Pinterest. You can find the recipe here. As you’ve probably noticed, recently I’ve been trying to master the art of baking bread. Sometimes it’s a complete flop….in those cases I don’t share that I even attempted it (it’s my little secret). But I kid you not, this peasant bread is fool proof and it’s delicious! I honestly could’ve eaten the whole loaf myself, which is perfectly fine when the recipe makes TWO loaves. Lucky me! What I love most about the bread is that you don’t have to let it rise and there’s no kneading involved, which are two of the most tedious and annoying parts of bread making, in my opinion. 

Easy Peasy Peasant Bread:

Mix and let sit for 10 minutes:

1 package dry yeast (2 Tbsp. + 1/4 tsp. if measuring)

2 cups warm water (110 degrees)

After 10 minutes, mix the yeast + water mixture in a mixing bowl with:

1 Tbsp. sugar

2 tsp. salt

4 cups flour

Do not mix too long. Do not knead. Let rise until doubled. After rising, split into 2 rounds and place on greased cookie sheet. Let rise again until doubled. Brush with egg white or melted butter and sprinkle with garlic salt. Bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes then reduce heat to 375 degrees and cook additional 15 minutes or until golden brown.

So go on and make yo’ self some peasant bread! You won’t be disappointed….and guests will be uber impressed. Double yes!
