Thanks to Lara's recipe shoebox

Very simple no fuss ,economical bread using only 5 ingredients. This isn't my recipe,but I use this bread in a recipe I posted called "Boiled Water" Soup. This bread is very good at any time though.

Serves:

2 loaves

Prep:

2 Hr

Ingredients

1 Tbsp
yeast quick rising,dry
2 c
warm water( 110 degrees or so)
1 Tbsp
sugar
1 tsp
salt
4 c
all purpose flour
olive oil, for greasing the pan
corn meal ,for pan
butter, melted for brushing on top

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Place yeast, water, sugar, and salt in warm bowl and stir until dissolved. Add flour and stir until blended, but do NOT knead.Cover and let rise one hour or until double in size.
2
Flour hands, remove dough from the bowl and place in 2 roughly equal rounds on an oiled cookie sheet sprinkled with corn meal (dough may be sticky and not hold its shape well--that's okay. It's not supposed to be pretty.) Let rise an additional 20-30 minutes.
3
Brush the tops and sides of the rounds with melted butter and bake at 425 degrees for 10 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 375 degrees and cook an additional 15 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from oven and brush tops and sides of rounds again with melted butter. Serve warm. Enjoy!
