I make most of the bread we eat in our home and we really enjoy it. If you want fresh bread in the morning you can try the No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread I posted a while back as you get everything ready in the evening and you just need to warm up the oven and let it bake in the morning. The below is a recipe that will take you about 2 -2.5 hours from start to finish, I usually make it during the weekend and it lasts our family of 5 for a couple days.
I thought I’d post some breakfast inspiration for the week ahead.
We have 3 kids between ages 2 and 6 so to say that mornings are a hectic time would be an understatement. Between waking them up, trying get them all dressed, fed and out the door before 8.15 we don’t have time to enjoy a family breakfast every day so I try to make up for that in the weekends. One rule I follow during the week is that I try to provide something else every day for breakfast. Yes, I try to not run our of cereal and milk and that is my go to choice if I don’t have time for anything else but otherwise I try to put some fruit and veggies in their breakfast.
This Bread is crusty on the outside with a soft and delicious inside. The ingredients and recipe is not very different from a traditional bread recipe however the way it’s baked in a covered dutch oven is what gives it the beautiful looks and the crusty texture.
I love baguettes and french bread but they go stale so quickly. Here is a quick recipe to use basically with any stale bread. I usually prepare everything in the evening, let it soak in the fridge over night and bake it in the morning; My kids love this bread pudding with maple syrup in the morning.
