NotesA good friend of mine gave me this recipe a few years back, and it has become one that I turn to when I want fresh bread, but don't have a lot of time. It requires no kneading and rising time is totally optional. Also optional is the use of a mixer to combine ingredients...I generally just use my muscles!
