|Wonderful Fresh Bread…Yum!|
Long before there were kitchen appliances, that helped make some of our cooking chores easier…there were innovative cooks that found ways to cut time and still turn out a phenomenal product. Long before there were bread machines…there was coffee can bread! This is a very interesting concept. You mix all your ingredients into a bowl and pour into a coffee can with a plastic lid. The rising of the dough pushes the lid off and then its time to bake. No kneading, no punching down, just wait for the lid to pop off! It's that easy to make a great tasting loaf of bread. The bread comes out with a very nice crumb and is delicious! It makes great toast and the kids will love their sandwiches on round bread. In fact, your kids (depending on their age) would probably enjoy making this themselves, with a little help. The first thing you need are two, 1 pound coffee cans with plastic lids or one, 2 pound can. Make sure the cans are tin or steel and not lined with any plastic. If your cans have a ridge on the inside you should remove it with a can opener before you start. Wash cans with soap and water and dry well. Grease cans with Crisco or spray with a cooking spray such as Pam. I've had this recipe for years and think it's worth the time to blog about! Hope you agree and give it a try!
