At home we usually prefer having bread for breakfast. But since we are living in a small village where a bakery doesn't exist, we tend to buy bread in the city and just heat or toast it in the morning. In short, we rarely have freshly baked bread at home. Lately, I have been baking this bread and making little innovations to it. There is no need to knead the dough in this recipe, eliminating the most exhausting and time consuming part of baking bread.

Prep Time: 2 hours 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20-25 minutes

Total Time: 2 hours and 35 minutes

Yield: 14
