A few weeks ago I found Tiffany's blog about making depression era bread. She had taken one of Clara's (a 90+ year old woman who lived through the great depression) recipes and made it her own.
I bake it last night and it was great. I think I used only about 6-7 tsp of dry active yeast, and 4 tsp salt.
Now you see why I'm not good at baking cookies and things like that - I'm not an exact cook. I love things that you can just throw the ingredients in and eyeball it.
I made the bread last night, but at the advice of my grandmother left it sitting out (covered with a towel) to rise overnight. This morning I divided it into 6 loaves - baking one and putting the other 5 in the freezer.
I brought a piece with me to work, and its delicious! :)
And at $0.50 a loaf, you can't beat that!
