Gutsy Cooks Club: Lazy Loaf

Feeling somewhat negligent about not keeping up with our
Gutsy Cooks Club posting commitment we figured we better get back on track.

After almost a full week of unexpected vacation this past week (gotta love those unexpected snow storms)... now that it's time to get back in the routine of things so making Nigella's Lazy Loaf posted on Cookstr seemed like a great idea for breakfasts for this upcoming week.

As we transparently admit baking is not really our passion..so baking bread not something we usually do regularly. But this recipe just seemed too easy to not make. REALLY!

I mean how can we not handle it, no kneading and no serious rising steps.

I mean the photo above includes everything but the water needed to make this bread. How difficult could it be.

So we went with it although we could easily see based on the recipe that this was something we "could do" we weren't convinced that it would actually be good.

Basically you mix everything together starting with the dry ingredients. Simple.

Then you add the milk & water.

It basically comes out to be a thick oatmealy paste that you put in a loaf pan.

So we're thinking to ourselves; "really it's this easy?"

It came out looking like a dense bread.

We let it rest a bit and then gave it a "tester" slice. And all be... we loved it. With a little bit of Raspberry Peach Champagne Jam it was delicious.

Truly this will be the perfect breakfast pick me up going back to school this week for us both.

To give this a try here's a link to the recipe.


  1. O Man, this means I have to make this - STAT... Steph over at Fake Goods made the rice cake and swears by it... so this is two things I need to make this week.. yeah, I'm late!

  2. Wow this bread looks good and so perfect for breakfast! I think I'll try this out too...seems so easy to make!

  3. I LOVE easy bread recipes. I'll try this one tomorrow. Woot!


We'd love to hear about your favorite meals, restaurants, or wines, as well as anything else you'd like to share.....
