BEST-BREAD-RECIPE-EVER (takes less than 1 hour 40 minutes):
3 1/2 cups BREAD flour
1 tbs yeast
1 tbs sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 tsp salt
Put the yeast and sugar in the water. Water should be about room temperature. Let sit for only 10 minutes.
After ten minutes, add the flour one cup at a time. After the first cup, stir in the salt.
You DON'T HAVE TO KNEAD THIS BREAD, just make sure the flour in mixed in. I do it with a fork.
Let sit on counter, covered, for ONLY ONE HOUR. I would kill myself if it took 24 hours to make bread.
After the hour has elasped, form loaves, let them proof(rise) for an additional 10 minutes.
Bake in a preheated oven at 425 for 15-18 minutes.
Voila...bread in less than ONE HOUR AND 40 MINUTES.
This makes great breadsticks, artisan loaves, or even pizza dough. Substitute 1 1/2 cups of flour with wheat flour for some grainy good bread.
