I found this recipe on the internet.
It really is so easy,only four ingredients! The best part is NO KNEADING!(read comments on that site for more info.)
You do need a Dutch oven,cast iron,with a lid is best. On loan from my friend Ellie..for the duration.Thank you gal.
Set the covered, bread mix over night on your counter and bake the next morning.
What could be easier than that.
A few of my friends on J.A.P. requested the here it is, along with my pictures.
Please try it, I baked it this morning. DELISH!! 5/14/12
