Drew’s sister Cecily and her new husband Robbie loved this bread so much they asked if we would prepare enough loaves for their wedding reception that was in June 2011 … 27 loaves were made over the course of a weekend and frozen for the big day!!
It got fabulous reviews!! We love this bread… NO kneading necessary!
- 3 C flour

*I figure if I am going to the effort to make 1 loaf… why not make 4? (They freeze really well)

5 T sea salt
1 T yeast
6 C hot water
In a very large bowl follow the directions above, repeat the baking instructions 4 times. (Keep the saran wrap on the loafs of bread between baking so it won’t dry out)
