Step 1: Preparations

To make this bread you will need a gallon size Ziploc bag, small mixing bowl, 8x4 loaf pan & the following ingredients:

3 cups all-purpose flour, or equal part white & whole wheat flours, divided
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 (.25 ounce) package rapid rise yeast
1 cup warm water

3 tablespoons non-fat dry milk
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Step 2: Smoosh, Bubble, Smoosh, Rise & Bake!

Let's make some bread!

Combine 1 cup of flour, sugar, yeast and warm water in the Ziploc bag. Smoosh & mix until combined. Allow the mixture to rest for about 10 minutes.  You will see bubbles in the mixture, which means the yeast is working.

Next, mix 1 cup of flour, dry milk, salt and oil in your small mixing bowl, then add this to the Ziploc bag. Time to mush & squoosh again! Once that is well incorporated, add the final cup of flour & squish around again until combined.

Take the dough from the bag & turn out onto a lightly floured surface.  Knead for about 5 minutes, then place in a greased loaf pan. Cover with a towel and allow to rise in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until about doubled in size.

Bake the bread for about 30 minutes in preheated 375 degree oven, or until golden brown.  Remove from pan & allow to cool somewhat before slicing. Enjoy!

    hahaha perfect..I'm luvin the name, it's a great thing to try with my bf's neice who always loves to "help" lol

    That is a very good idea. My kids love to "help" but it usually ends up with more ingredients on the counter than in the bowl.
