Crazy Bread; Guest Post

A guest post from far away Canada. It may be that I've inspired some of the family to get into cooking.

i am visiting the grandparents for tonight. (i think they wanted me to stop gaming and come socialize lol) i made them crazy bread, and i decided to send you the recipe and a picture. then you can make some, and tell me how to improve mine.

  • 5ml salt
  • 5ml sugar
  • 10ml instant-rise yeast
  • 200ml warm water (i used the warmest their kitchen sink could go)
  • 500ml all-purpose flour

i combined all ingredients into a bowl. (flour, sugar, salt, yeast, water, in that order if it makes a difference) then i mixed it with a big spoon, until i couldn't get it mixed any more. then i kneaded it with my hands until it made a ball of dough. (somewhat strechy in texture, no flour gobs, a tad bit sticky) then i let it sit for five minutes. after 5 mins was up, i rolled it out into somewhat of a square, approx 0.75cm thick. then i cut it in half, and then into strips about 2-2.5 cm wide. i placed the strips on a baking sheet (with edges so they didn't fall off). then i baked at 350* for 10 minutes. i took them out, and buttered them (with one of those cool brush thingys, they are fun) and lightly sprinkled them with grated parmesean cheese. i put them back in for 5 minutes until the cheese melted. then i let them cool, and put them on a plate and took this picture for you!

… that's the way we were told to make them at school. they didnt rise a lot, i personally think they should have been puffier, but thats the way the teacher told us. (how do u make them puffier anyways?) they tasted good though, so i guess that's all that matters. i didnt do a very good job at making even slices, so they were a tad bit lopsided. i had fun making them, and grandma and grandpa had fun eating them. grandma had made chicken noodle soup, so we dipped them. we enjoyed it. anyways, i thought you would be interested in my cooking adventure.

cool i have a post! one thing we havent done in class is learn how to write a recipe; sorry if mine is difficult to understand. yes, you were the inspiration for my cooking adventures. (and some misadventures but that's learning right?), and the fact that i dont like science, which was my other option. (although there is a science to cooking, but its a lot more fun than memorizing the periodic table) i'm honored that my meager attempt at creating something edible was rewarded in such a way.
