I’ve grown pretty acustom to making breads once or twice a week here at the homestead.
Especially during the winter when the pigs are in the freezer and not in the pen waiting for old bananas and eggs.
I truly believe in that old saying, waste not want not.
Typically, I buy a big bunch of bananas on a Sunday expecting I’ll have a few brown ones by Wednesday. My daughters can be pretty picky over browning fruit.
They’ve never complained about my banana bread though! My husband begs me each week to make it.
Making other breads like focaccia or potato bread is my favorite way to use up eggs or potatoes on the verge of eyes.
This recipe for No Knead Bread, only requires 5 simple ingredients and tastes like you just went to the bakery!
Get into the habit of making this super simple bread each week. Your family will love you for it!

3 hours, yields 2 loaves
- 2 c hot water

While your waiting, whisk together 4 cups of white, all purpose flour and 2 tsp’s of kosher salt.
Not too close! No accidents should occur during the making of this bread.
After an hour and a half the dough should have risen.
Set your oven to 425.
After 30 minutes, place your loaf pans in the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
After 15 minutes reduce the oven temperature to 375 and bake for an additional 15 minutes.
When it’s all done…
I reccomend getting out the butter!
