the easiest bread recipe ever!


good morning everyone, some time ago we found a bread recipe that claimed to be so simple that a 4 year old could successfully bake bread. well that sounded interesting. we are allways out there looking for new ideas and recipes. i posted the recipe on our shared blog and you can read it here.
we are baking this one on a regular basis now and it allways turnes out amazing. we also tried a whole wheat version of it. just replace some of the white flour with whole wheat (not all of it otherwise it will have difficulties rising), some of the water with milk and maybe add some sugar or honey. we also put in double the amount of yeast to help it rise propperly.
give it a try, it is so unbelivably simple that i really belive a kid could do it!
 let me know how it works for you.

We're making our own bread as well. I got an extra fast, extra yummy recipe from my father: 3 min putting stuff in a bowl and stirring it together with a spoon, no waiting time, baking. He had it from a senior's health magazine - which made me suspicious. But it's great!
Here's recipe and how to: http://sannekurz.wordpress.com/2011/08/07/nut-bread-homemade-artisan-fast-easy-yummy/
I live by the way with a Tel-Aviver in Munich.
Funny to read a blog from a migration the other direction.

Oh, definitely let me know how this goes! We had one kid here in the local Jewish school and one in a normal public school ... all an interesting journey!
As for the Dinkel / spelt in my recipe:
In Hebrew it's called כוסמין - I reckon health shops or טִיב טַעַם should have it in stock.
If not just keep the recipe for later, when you move to Germanian-Christmas-madness in a hopefully snowy and illuminated by warm light winter time...

PS
The less obvious places might be:
*the blog of Baroness Tapuzina who bakes a lot with spelt in Tel Aviv: http://www.baronesstapuzina.com/2010/11/23/spelt-flour-in-biblical-portions/ - she will know where to get it - and
*list of organic food stores in Tel Aviv: http://www.gaianaturopathic.com/resources_links_healthfoodstoresisrael.html
Good Luck!

ohh, thanks so much for the list! we started buying our food from an organic food co-op in tel aviv http://wrappedtroubles.blogspot.co.il/2013/03/the-tel-aviv-food-co-op.html
because organic food here is just soooo expensive! exemple: we buy regular eggs for about 13nis and the organic ones cost 24nis! thats double! and it is not as if food isnt expensive here allready... well, still hoing they will come to their senses. thanks again!
