Lazy Bread for a Lazy Day

17 Apr

I woke up to the sound of cold rain falling this morning, and was unable to move my neck properly for the fifth day in a row. These two events meant:

  • closed curtains
  • minimal work
  • LAZY BREAD for dinner

My good friend Anwen (also my rosehip supplier) gave me this recipe which she had sourced from her friend, Anne Jul from Denmark. This concept of super-easy bread may be no new thing to some, but to me it was a revelation. I’m ok with kneading bread, but it really does cut into my Coffee/Wine Time.

I wrote this recipe on a scrap of paper in my *special* kind of shorthand, and then adapted it to my ‘no time for scales’ style. Sorry to the Danish Bread-Making Community for the lack of accuracy.

  • Mix 1 heaped teaspoon yeast with 500ml warm water.
  • Add 1 teaspoon salt and 700g flour (or I just add about 4-5C flour until it’s the right consistency).
  • Put in fridge overnight, or for the day.
  • Scoop onto baking tray and shape.
  • Bake 5-8mins at 250deg celsius, then 15-20mins at 180deg celsius.

I was going to make a risotto to have with the bread . . . but tonight, it’s lazy bread with fish and chips and a bottle of wine. The risotto can wait until tomorrow.

    This recipe has become very popular with my friends, so I thought I’d share it again. This morning I had poppy lazy bread with thick lemon honey on it. Supper before bed will probably be the same thing. So cheap. So tasty. No hassle.
