What Do You Need To Make This Lazy Loaf Bread Recipe?

You will need a 10qt/2.5 gal food safe container to keep your dough in (you can half the recipe and use a smaller container).

Supplies Needed To Make This Easy Lazy Woman Bread Recipe:

Mix with dough hook in order listed:

  • 6 cups warm water
  • 1/2 c oil
  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1/4c yeast

Easy bread recipe that starts off as dough in flour.

Baking Your Super Simple Homemade Bread Recipe:

  1. Mix well, it will be a bit wet looking for a bread dough.
  2. Dump into a 10q food safe tub.
  3. Let it sit on the counter for an hour or two until it rises nearly to the lid.
  4. Then refrigerate.
  5. Take dough out as needed to bake – it will keep for over a week.
  6. I usually let the bread sit for about twenty min before baking to reactivate the yeast.
  7. Also, for a crusty taste, bake it simultaneously with a pot of water in the oven. It is really the lazy woman’s bread!
Notes:

If you want more of the fun grains you can replace white with more graham flour or add a T of gluten… or enjoy eating a flatter loaf.
