When You Don’t Have Time or Energy, This Simple Pantry Bread Is For You
Don’t be afraid by the sound of baking bread, as this one is very easy and you will get satisfying results. So, instead of worrying about buying food, let’s get cooking with what you have in your kitchen and pantry.
There is always time for bread in your life!
First things first, and in this case, that’s the flour. Self-raising flour is truly magical, as it saves you time and gives your bread an amazing texture.
However, you can use any other flour that you have available. Some good options are all-purpose flour, bread flour, wheat flour, almond flour, or potato flour. Keep in mind that you will need to add a leavening agent, as these don’t come with one.
In terms of using milk, make this bread with any milk or dairy product that you have handy. Good options include evaporated milk, cream, and half and half. On the other hand, for a lactose-free product, you can use any nut milk or coconut milk.
Now, as for the seasoning, that is completely up to you. This recipe can be made with butter, some herbs like basil, thyme, or oregano, or even mashed garlic.
When you are feeling adventurous, add some cheddar cheese, or make it sweet bread with sugar, vanilla, and cinnamon. You can even add some coffee or cocoa powder for a change of pace too, truly any flavor you want works, and it will result in tasty bread.
This bread takes a few minutes to cook, so you don’t have to worry about the oven or checking on it too much. Use your skillet and create delicious simple pantry bread for any meal of the day.
