This was my most popular recipe, and I feel like I lost part of me when this one did not transfer to a new blog platform. With that being said, I will manually add this recipe, pictures and a post itself and it will show as a new post.
It is really heartbreaking to me that all the new visitors will not be able to see comments, tips, and feedback from the original post but it is what it is.
Well, I had over 1 million views just on this recipe and close to 300 comments so I can’t even tell you how I feel right now.
I am reposting it again. With that being said, I would love your feedback, mostly to get this recipe back up to most popular and recommended one
It is so worth it and I know you all will love it when you make it. So please share your pictures, tips, and comments with me and others
The first time when I made the bread, I was probably 13 years old… My mom started to work, and I came from the school, hungry like a wolf; I was all alone, my sister was in school and my dad was working as well!
Next, to the stove I found a note from my mother, saying ”Could you prepare the bread dough and I will bake it when I come back.” It was the whole preparation (list) how to do.
It seemed simple enough, and I got right away to work. Next to the bowl and flour was fresh yeast, and my mom very nearly wrote: “put about 1-2 tablespoons of warm milk in a cup with fresh yeast, to get it activated.” It would take a few minutes, and then I should put it into the flour with everything else.
I mixed flour and felt so proud of myself… Well… HA! Funny story… I went back to the kitchen about 15 times, mixing the dough constantly.
It was rather odd looking like it was for pancakes. I kept adding more flour, then more water, and the dough my friends never raised up. I was covered in flour
Honestly, I felt hopeless! It was like watching my own reality show. I did not actually know what I did wrong
“Healthier” version of a recipe No-knead whole wheat bread
Now I rarely buy it from the store or bakery… I am making bread every day fresh and from scratch without a bread machine.
My hands and my trusty wooden spoon are doing everything in a matter of 5 minutes, however, if you have trouble mixing it with the wooden spoon, using something like KitchenAid with kneading attachment would not hurt.
I just wanted to show how easy bread could be made this way. The dough is not as hard to mix, so I do not see a point using any other equipment, but if you really can’t, please, be my guest and use whatever will make your life easier.
The bottom line is, my family and I love, love bread. It is a staple of our house, and whether I make flatbread, Irish soda bread or whole-wheat, the bread is eaten almost in one day. So here is my recipe that you will love.
