French Peasant Bread

French Peasant Bread

Everybody loves the taste of homemade bread when it’s fresh out of the oven, but sometimes bread recipes can be intimidating and time-consuming. Not this one. You don’t even have to knead it. If you’ve never made homemade bread before, this recipe is the place to start because it’s the easiest bread recipe I’ve ever found. And you won’t believe how wonderful it tastes, especially since you hardly put any effort into it. The recipe was shared with me by a friend, but it originally came from the book Favorites¬†by sisters, Grace Ivory Rock and Jane Ivory Metcalf.

You’ll want to start this bread about three hours before serving time, but let me tell ya, there will be plenty of time to paint your nails or wash the car during those three hours because most of that time, the bread is just sitting their rising all by itself.

Just before baking it, you brush the bread with melted butter.  And as soon as it comes out of the oven, you brush it with MORE melted butter.

Then serve it warm with EVEN MORE butter, and get ready for the compliments!
