What equipment do you think you need? A bowl and an oven are the only tools other than your hands that you need. You have an oven yes? I hope you
have a bowl and I am betting you have hands but I could be wrong there. What it takes is time. You need a couple of hours to spare for bread making.
I make bread about twice a month just because my family likes it very fresh and it makes the house smell great. We buy commercially baked bread for
the rest of the time.
1 C hot water
1 pkg active dry yeast
1 tsp sugar
Prep yeast in hot water with the sugar for about 15 min.
4-5 cups of flour
2 tps salt
a little veg oil for the bowl.
add the water and yeast to the flour and combine, then add the salt.
Knead for 10 min. ( thats the time consuming part right there unless you have a stand mixer to do it for you.)
Oil a bowl and leave the dough for about 40 min.
Punch down, form into two ropes about 14 inches long.
let rest again for about 40 min.
Bake at 350 for 30-35 min.
Add tons of butter and enjoy !
