My Favourite and My Best Bread Recipe*
Okay, it is the ONLY bread recipe I make. But it is GOOD.
I got it from this website way back when I lived in Scotland. I was desperately seeking an easy-to-make-at-almost-the-last-minute bread recipe for dinner. So, of course it couldn't involve any kneading/rising/yeast. I came across this and it was in instant hit.
What it lacks in beauty is made up in flavor and hardiness. It is a great bread to serve along side soup or a salad. It is also great as a snack and travels well as two slices buttered together, stuck in a zip lock bag and brought to the park in your big bag of park stuff. I happen to know this last idea from personal experience.
If you don't have buttermilk on hand (I usually don't) you can use plain greek yogurt and it is just as good…and has added protein! It makes two good sized loafs and they freeze quite well.
