Join me over at IHCC for the Domestic Goddess theme this week. Nigella is the epitome of such a definition …she makes all of her meals seem so easy to throw together. This one actually is very easy. But I’m the only one who likes it (deep sigh)……
Lazy Loaf…just the name says it all. I’ll tell you up front, I like it but I wouldn’t necessarily make it again. Not unless I added something else. Doug does not like it…it isn’t offensive, it’s just too bland.
You will need the following..........
2 ¾ cups bread flour
2 cups oaty unsugared muesli (do NOT use granola)
2 ½ teaspoons or 1 package rapid-ride or instant yeast
1 teaspoon table salt
1 cup 2% milk
1 cup water
Mix flour, muesli, yeast and salt in a bowl.
Pour in the milk and water, and then stir to mix. It will be thick…very thick.
Transfer to a greased loaf pan. Put in a cold oven, turning it immediately to 225 degrees. Leave at this temperature for 45 minutes.
After 45 minutes, turn temp up to 350 and leave for 1 hour. It should be golden brown and done by then. Slip it out of the pan and let cool. This is incredibly dense bread.
Spreading the bread with a good quality strawberry preserves was very tasty.
