Super Simple Bread || MagpieMagpie Bakes

Hi Lovelies. Are you all keeping well and safe? I’m trying my best to stay out of trouble! It’s strange times at the minute, but hopefully this Super Simple Bread post will be useful and take your mind off the madness for a minute.
I’m not actually stuck home at the minute, but some of you might be. A few might be with your kids and looking for things to do. This recipe is super quick and easy and defo worth a try. With just 6 ingredients. Which hopefully most of you will have in the press already. A cup to measure. You should be able to bang out this delicious bread in less than 10 mins prep time and 20mins bake time. I make this every week for my lunch, and I love it. I find it so quick and easy! If I can do it, anyone can! 
If you can get your hands on Odlums flour, get it because their products are such great quality! I live in the Channel Islands so I can’t actually get Odlums here, but when I get a chance to i stock up and bring bits back here with me. I used Tesco porridge oats in this recipe, but if money didn’t come into it, Flahavan’s Organic Oats would be my top choice every time. My favourite yogurt to use has to be the Onken 0% Natural  (it’s in a bright blue tub). Any yogurt can be used really, so if I was you I’d be experimenting. I tired vanilla yogurt once as that was all I had, it wasn’t half bad,
If there’s one thing I’d prioritise buying, it would have to be the Odlums Bread Soda. It makes such amazing bread, like on another level. But if you can’t get your hands on it baking powder will do .
This bread goes amazing with soup, jam and butter, and it’s unreal slightly toasted under the grill, topped with avocado, bacon and an egg. And of course all of the above should be served with a cup of tea, ha ha!
If you guys have some feedback for me on the recipe I’d welcome it! And if any of you make it let me know what you think. Do you have any recipes to share? Let me know on the comments, I’d love to hear from you.
Lemon Drizzle Cake is next up on the list, hopefully next week so keep an eye out! I’ll pop it up on the blog too. And here a few more bakes if your interested Halloween Bakes and Easter Ideas
Keep in touch and keep safe.

    You have made me feel relaxed about running out of bread … I have frozen all of mine store bought stuff to tie me over until I can get to the shops again .. but now, thanks to your blog I might actually bake my own! This is a genius idea! Are sure if it doesn’t work out I have all the time in the world to figure it out. I actually think I have all the bits I need, just missing a bread tin. Will get on my next excursion 👍

      I would have been tempted to freeze some of my beloved ciabatta, but we have a shelf in the fridge of a freezer. I love fresh bread and would usually buy some everyday until my mother gave me this recipe last year and I’ve been hooked ever since. Hopefully it’s helpful for people like me who don’t have a freezer and want to stay inside as much as possible. If you make it tag me x #MagpieMagpieBakes

    Thanks for the recipe! I’ve been meaning to try to make my own bread for ages! Never done it before so will definitely give this a go – now is the perfect opportunity.. You can’t beat fresh warm bread and salted butter 🤩
