Artisan Bread in Five Minutes


My very first blog post in 2009 was about this bread.  I had just gotten the cookbook, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day by Hertzberg and Francois.  It wasn't a wonderful post...and the picture left a lot to be desired!  As I recall, my daughter and SIL had just moved to Seattle and I went up for a visit....since we enjoy cooking together, this was going to be our "fun thing to do".  It was a delicious bread and I knew that I would be making it in the future!

It is simple...the process involves mixing up the dough, letting it raise for two hours and then pop it into the refrigerator to use within 14 days.  One recipe makes four small loaves... You may get the recipe here along with great visuals if you are making the bread for the first time.


So easy and so delicious!!
I am off to the kitchen to make another batch of dough!
