Five Minute Bread Dough

I'm serious, it only takes about 5 minutes to make this bread dough! Here's the recipe.

You mix all of the ingredients in an old ice cream bucket. You can use something else, but this works great because it has a lid, but isn't air tight. So follow the recipe and mix it all together and 5 minutes later you're done.

Let it sit on the counter for 2 hours so the dough can rise. Then pop it in the refrigerator. If you want to make bread the next day, just pull the container out and let it sit for 30 minutes.

Then get your hands wet and pull out the a ball of dough from the container. Around a pound works, but you can adjust this depending on the size loaf you want. Lightly dust the loaf with flour and shape it. Sprinkle cornmeal on a sheet of parchment paper and set your loaf on it.

Don't forget to make a deep cut in the top of the loaf before putting it in the oven. It allows the steam to escape. These are only partial instructions. Follow the detailed instructions in the recipe to make your own. This was my first effort, so I'm excited to try it again soon.
