My mom used to have a bread business that she ran out of our home. I remember the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven. It’s the most glorious smell. Not to mention that it tastes amazing too.
I’m not a bread baker, but every now and then I get the itch to make up a loaf. Instead of entertaining the idea of laboring to make it myself, I usually just buy a fresh made loaf at my local grocery store’s bakery counter. Not this time. I became a bread warrior on a random Tuesday afternoon and decided it was time.
This 4 Ingredient Artisan Bread recipe was super easy, especially with my KitchenAid mixer and dough hook. Love that thing! The “labor” wasn’t near as bad as I would have expected with homemade bread. The waiting for the rising was the worst part, but I have kiddos that keep me occupied so I survived the waiting.
This bread made the perfect complement to our warm meal that night. It made two loaves and I shared the other with our neighbor.
