Easy Peasant Bread


I was in the mood the other day for homemade bread. I know, I must be crazy. I just talked about not using my oven to heat up my house during this hot July month. What can I say, I was craving fresh made bread. I decided to make the most easy bread recipes I have. I got this recipe from an old neighbor of mine, I think she said it was a Greek recipe. It really is a bread recipe for dummies, it would to hard to mess this one up.

This bread does have a very rustic look to it. When you put this bread on the cookie sheet , you just place it on there in two blobs. This may not be the prettiest looking loaf of bread (probably where it gets it name), but it makes up for that in flavor. This recipe makes a delicious bread with a crusty outside and a yummy chewy center. SO GOOD for this bread freak. If you happen to have any leftovers, it also makes yummy garlic bread. Enjoy!

  • This is a fabulous go to bread. Simple, easy and tastes great. My kids devoured it! I like it better than my bread machine loaves. It looks beautiful too, so it’s great for entertaining

  • This recipe is so great! My 10 year old son can and has made this bread completely by himself. He added garlic bread seasoning and some cheese…WOW, so good. Right now I am making it with cinnamon, brown sugar and walnuts…lazy man’s cinnamon bread.

    Thanks for sharing this awesome, “go to” recipe.

  • This bread was beyond delicious! I felt like it was a little healthier than normal too because there was no oil in it. I was short on time so I only let it rise for 30 minutes each time and it still turned out delicious!

  • I made this this past week — the word yummy doesn’t do it justice. It was so awesome! And very easy to make too. Thanks!
