SAVE DOUGH BY MAKING DOUGH
Want to eat the best bread and get back at those greedy pricefixing bread cartels? Make your own. No, wait; don’t run away, it’s easy, I’ll walk you through it. First, get a bread maker. Second, don’t bake the bread in it! Add ingredients in order listed and then push start on the regular/normal/ whatever cycle. Do not use the dough cycle (at least for this recipe). Set the timer on your phone for two hours and forty minutes. When the phone rings, unplug the bread maker and turn the oven on to 400 F. When the oven is hot, let the dough ooze out of the pan onto a piece of parchment paper in a baking pan with ridges, or if you prefer, lightly oiled bread pans. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes (depends on your oven). Let cool on a rack. Don’t worry about forgetting to make the transfer; the worst that can happen is it cooks in the bread maker. This is my go-to, but there are infinite variations, different flours, etc. Experiment, explore, but most of all, enjoy.
