My Adventures In Artisan Bread Making…the 5 Minutes A Day Method

Have you heard of this incredible book called Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day? The concept is pretty self explanatory but pure genius!

I first read about this book on a blog some months ago. (Long enough that don’t even remember which blog it was.) I fell in love with the idea, but I just didn’t feel brave enough to give it a try.

Then last week, Lynn from Lynn’s Kitchen Adventures posted about the challah recipe from that book and my interest was renewed.

A quick google search later, I found the base recipe and was good to go.

I love this recipe! I love it’s convenience in that it keeps in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. I love that it is so easy to put together. I love how fancy it looks with such little fuss.


(I made some rolls to go with our Loaded Baked Potato Soup the other day. Definitely a winning combination!)

And most of all…I love how it tastes! Could there be a more stolen moments friendly recipe?

I predict I will have batches of this dough in my refrigerator at all times for the next few years.

Seriously, if you cook or bake nothing else this week, please try this bread. You can thank me later!

  1. I have the book! and have been making the bread, since the book came out. I ALWAYS have a batch in my fridge just waiting. SOOOOO good! My family loves it. And just for fun, take a small amount of the dough, flatten it out, with some flour, and then cook in a skillet with a bit of butter, flip over and cook the other side. The best flatbread ever!!! or skillet pizza if you doctor it up.

  2. I bought that cookbook last summer and love it. I haven’t tried all of the recipes in it, but many of the basic ones. They have all been so yummy.

  3. I’m so glad to find your comments on this type of bread-making. I posted a comment about wanting to try this a few weeks ago on my blog after trying traditional bread-making. I just need a container to put it in and a pizza peel before I can try it unless there is another solution to putting it into the oven. I’m really tired of buying store-bought bread, but do not want to really pursue making my own all the time unless it is much cheaper. Do you see this being a much cheaper way to go? I really enjoy reading your recipes.

  4. I finally tried this, Kate and I am in love!!!! I need to get a pizza peel, as my cutting board did NOT have the effect I was hoping for. Spatula saved the day, but the shape of the bread suffered. Not the taste, though! Yum!
