Batter Bread- Easy Yeast Bread- Grandma's

Kathie Carr


Grandma could stir up this no-knead white yeast bread quickly and bake it fresh for same day use. Of course it still takes a while because bread must rise, and that takes time. Prep time includes rising time.

Nothing smells better in the kitchen than fresh bread baking.
