Lazy Person's Bread

zackly | Aug 8, 202006:19 AM     6

I’m no baker but I make the simplest bread that’s quite tasty.
I put four cups of flour (I use two cups each of AP and bread flour but any combination of the two can be used) into my stand mixed with a generous teaspoon of granular yeast, a couple of tablespoons of olive oil (optional), tap water and salt. I mix for five minutes of so then put in an oiled Ziploc bag and put this bag in the refrigerator. That’s it, no need to use warm water or rise in a warm place. In two days you’ll have nice risen dough. Just proof and bake. I use half one day and the balance the next. The dough should last about five days max in the refrigerator. I make oblong loaves that I egg wash and cover with sesame or “everything bagel seeds” but that’s optional too. Probably would be excellent for pizza or focaccia too.
