Another jar recipe.
I love having most of the ingredients already set aside for a quick fix. For this, all I need to have is yeast, water and butter. Those are 3 things I typically have in the fridge, which makes this a super quick and easy throw together bread.
As you can see, I use an old pickle jar. It has been thoroughly washed and de-pickled :) If your jar has a smell (after being closed in the cupboard for a few days), put some baking soda in it for a while. Then wash with vinegar and leave open a few days.
In the jar, mix together:
3 cups bread flour
3 Tablespoons Grated parmesan cheese (sometimes I use an italian mix)
1 Tablespoon dry milk
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 teaspoons italian seasoning
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
When ready to bake, simply add in:
9 ounces (1 cup+ 2 Tablespoons) room temperature water
2 Tablespoons room temperature butter or margarine
2 teaspoons active dry yeast (or 1 1/2 tsp bread machine/fast rise yeast)
Mix all ingredients in the breadmaker and set on dough. When the dough is finished, transfer to a bread pan or cookie sheet. Bake at 200 degrees F for 20 minutes, then turn the heat up to 350 for the last 10-15 minutes. Your bread is finished when the crust is crispy and just browning.
*Note: I do not add the yeast into the jar mix to make sure it stays active and rises properly.
** With the grated cheese in this recipe I keep the jar in the fridge (I know you buy the cheese in the non-refrigerated section, but once opened the directions say to keep refrigerated)
