I can’t believe I made my “impossible” a “possible.”
Remember when you were in fourth grade and they were picking teams for dodgeball and you were always picked last and then you grew over the summer and then the team captain who never realy liked you picked you……first!
Remember that? Remember how excited you were?
THIS IS SO MUCH BETTER!
Did you see it?
Did you see it from both angles?
You know you want to scroll up one more time just to check out that adorable little loaf!
I want to take a giant picture of it and post it on a billboard.
I want to fly it from a banner on a plane.
I want them to announce it from the international space station.
SHE BAKED HER FIRST LOAF OF BREAD!
So how did I accomplish this herculean task?
First, I bought one of these (notice the positive slogan….I am off to a good start)!
…then I bought some of this…..
…..and some of this.
…. and this was truly the key to my success…..
….. I followed this recipe exactly as given to me by this incredibly talented and truly generous blogger. She is the reason why I was able to accomplish my “impossible.” She is the reason why my family tasted homemade bread baked by me for the first time in their lives. She is the one who gave me the courage to do what I would never even have attempted before.
Thank you my friend. Truly…..thank you.
And now….without further fanfare….here is her recipe…..
Never Fail Bread (I like the title already)
In a large mixing bowl, pour your fresh yeast into a bowl. Pour 2 c. water that is very warm, but not too hot. If it is too hot to touch, it will kill the yeast. Add 1/2 c. sugar. This gives the yeast food to grow. Allow this mixture to “proof” – meaning, it will sit for 10 minutes and show that the yeast is live by forming a layer of bubbles on top of the water. If this does not happen, your yeast may be too old. If it does form bubbles, continue with the recipe.
(Aside….this is what the bubbles look like….exactly like she said…..isn’t it awesome)!
And you end up with something that looks like this…..
…..that turned into this……in under five minutes.
If you have never baked bread before……please try this recipe. Trust me when I say…..if I…..the queen of the hotdog pot pie…..can bake bread…..
…..you should be able to do it with one hand tied behind your back!
So you have seen my “impossible” and now I want to see yours!
Please join me and each of these incredibly talented and truly creative bloggers as we host a six blog linky party.
