I haven’t baked much 5-minute bread this winter, even though it’s so handy and I love bread so very, very much. (Our new oven takes a stupidly long time to warm up, but that’s another story for another day.) However, the few times I’ve made some, we’ve found the easiest, fastest way is a
pita bread balloon.
You make up your dough to keep in the fridge, rip off a chunk, smoosh & spin into a circle (yes, I like to throw it in the air, and don’t drop it too often), then bake! No rising time necessary – by the time the oven is hot (450), throw it in for about 5 – 7 minutes. Done. Let cool, split, and fill with butter and cheese. Mmmmmmm.
I made a video a while back, and while the first minute is admittedly boring as heck, the last 30 seconds are totally worth it.
