Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



Used half the recipe for one loaf. It was quicker to make than other breads and we loved the end result! I made it initally to have warmed in the oven with garlic butter, to have with Spaghetti and meatballs. Then we used the rest for the most delicious thick toasts. Delish!
