Quick bread or soda bread is always the answer when you want rise but don't have the time.

Real soda bread isn't sweet and it doesn't contain fruit, so your bread is much closer to the original!

I forgot about the paper towel trick, Chopper!

These lines are just cracking me up. Soma, my husband and I have a ... I don't know, call it a hobby? Of going to monasteries and convents when we travel. Yes, we were born Roman Catholic, but don't practice. But we love going to these places. I took my cousin before he died, and the peace he got from it made my life worthwhile that year.

I didn't really answer the question. Husband is on a controlled carb diet. I have to look at the carb count when I buy bread. Most other starches/sweets you can eyeball, but bread? I've seen terribly different carb counts from one slice (roll, etc) to another, and of course bakeries don't post. So if we run out of bread and I don't feel like shopping we have rice or pasta of some sort (he gets 1/2 cup of either for lunch, a full cup for supper) until I get to the store. I'm not a huge sandwich lover. Husband says I take after my daddy, who loves sandwiches. BUT we destroy them when eating somehow. DH says he's watched us eat (for 30+ years now) and cannot figure out what we're doing that makes sandwiches destintegrate before we take our third bite. I rarely order a sandwich at a restaurant for that reason. They turn to mush in my hands before I can get a meal's worth out of them.

How do you make pita pockets, CSW?

I guess I didn't explain well.....my question referred to when you are completely and utterly out of bread....none in the freezer, none anywhere, no store nearby (I live 30 mins drive from town); AND you want the bread for eating within an hour or so.

Seems as if some of you are way more organized than I am, and always have some bread on hand, or are willing to do without. My DH is a bread man, needs bread, can't cook.

bread, recipe

What do you do when out of bread? Hi. Been away cooking at a monastery for a week, feel out of touch. Exhausted too, didn't sleep much in the spongey, rolly single bed they provided. But it was a good week, nevertheless. Challenging. People often show up unanounced with cooked food and want me to add it to the menu at last minute. I only lost my cool once.:cool: Hubby was manning the fort here, with our two cats, and running back and forth with supplies when I needed him. Hence our larder at home got sadly neglected. No bread for lunch....which brings me to our topic here. I just decided to make two Irish Soda breads, in regular loaf pans. In oven now...hope it turns out, used a combination of 3 dift recipes: (no sugar, don't like sugar in sandwich bread). 4 cups flour, half white half whole wheat 2 eggs 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup melted butter 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. baking soda 1-1/2 cups sour milk (regular milk with 1 tsp vinegar) Pics later.... 3 stars 1 reviews
