Bread recipe

Okay, here's the recipe I promised a couple of days ago.

3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon instant dry yeast
1-1/4 teaspoon salt
1-3/4 cup water

Mix together and set aside to rise. Punch down and let rise again. Cook as you normally would.

This is a pretty no-fuss recipe. I've walked off and forgotten it for hours at a time and it still turns out good.

Sometimes, about 5 minutes before I take it out of the oven, I like to add finely grated cheese to the top or Italian herbs and butter. I also like to rehydrate dried onion and add that to the dough and then a few on top.

How easy, just one question? How long between the rising and punching? LOL

Hi Sue,

I usually let it rise a couple of hours, punch it down, and let it rise another 30 minutes and then bake.

Sorry I forgot that part.
