Primary Prep, Ingredients & Nutritional Info

Traditional Bread Directions

  1. // Place 1 cup warm water, yeast (enclosed) and bread mix in large bowl. Stir until dough forms. Dough will be sticky.
  2. // KNEAD dough on a lightly floured surface 5-10 minutes or until smooth and elastic. Place in lightly greased bowl turning dough to coat on all
  3. // LET RISE, covered, in a warm place until double in size (about 1 hour). Punch dough down.

NO KNEAD ARTISAN BREAD DIRECTIONS
