Homemade bread is one of the few things I’ve always been intimidated to try making myself. It always seemed like so much work, time and ingredients to waste if it didn’t turn out well, and I can’t stand to put all that energy into something to have it be a big disappointment. I’m hyper conscious of the ingredients my family consumes and after not being able to find bread with simple, organic ingredients locally, I decided to bite the bullet and try making my own. Regardless of whether it turned out like bakery-bought or not, I would still be happy giving it to my kids, knowing exactly what went into the recipe. After an exhaustive search for a truly foolproof recipe, I landed on this one from Recipe Tin Eats and I can honestly say it’s not only ridiculously simple to make, but it also tastes absolutely AMAZING!

We’ve made this three times already in the last week and had it with grilled chicken and veggies for dinner and with butter and blackberry jam for breakfast. The recipe couldn’t be more simple; you literally throw all the ingredients together, mix them with a wooden spoon, cover with plastic wrap and let sit for 2-3 hours so it can rise and then bake it off in a Dutch oven for a half hour. I’m always encouraging my littles to help in the kitchen so they can learn the basics of cooking and they’ve been so proud to make this on their own! If you’re not following Recipe Tin Eats, I highly recommend doing so; I’ve made many of her recipes, including the Tiramisu recipe I shared here last year and they’re all very straighforward and delicious. (You can find the recipe for the panzanella in the photo above, here).

I think this would make a fabulous hostess gift, paired with a bottle of olive oil or homemade dipping sauce; who wouldn’t love a loaf of crusty, soft homemade bread? If you try this recipe, be sure to leave a comment below and let me know how it turned out! Happy Thursday!
