Lazy Man's Bread

Cheryl Chavez


This recipe is a quick bread that takes less than 45 minutes to make from start to finish. . .including the twenty minutes it takes to preheat the oven!
I have tweaked the recipe by adding a little something extra depending on what I was going to be serving with the bread. I have added a bit a garlic to serve with chili or a bit of cinnamon to serve as a breakfast bread or make french toast.
I have also used Bisquik in place of the self rising flour when I discovered that I did not have any self rising flour.
