Baking bread is a quintessential kindergarten experience in a Waldorf school. We take this tradition and bring it home. In this video, I’ll show you a quick and easy recipe for making bread:
1 tablespoon sugar (I use brown sugar)
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of yeast
2 cups of warm water
4 cups of flour
Mix ingredients together in a non-metal bowl (ceramic or plastic) with a wooden spoon (don’t use metal).
Add a loose fitting lid (optional, add oil to dough so it doesn’t dry out).
After it has doubled in size (2-4 hours), shape it into medium-sized balls using your hand that have been oiled with olive oil to keep the dough from sticking.
Bake for 12 minutes at 430 degrees on an oiled pan or in a pan lined with parchment paper.
Serve piping hot with olive oil.
