Bread, hot and fresh from the oven, with melty butter is one of my most favorite foods and memories. My mom makes a mean homemade bread—she calls it Hungarian Flat Bread. The story is that her mom, my grandma, was making bread for my grandad's lunch (he was a coal miner and farmer). He wanted it sooner rather than later and so Grandma skipped the second rise. It ended up cooking faster too, so flat bread was born in the family. And since Grandma and Grandpa were both from Hungary, we called it Hungarian Flat Bread.
I don't actually have that recipe handy, but here's a dandy one for bagels. And if you've never had a homemade piping hot bagel, you've got to try this! Definitely use the bread flour and set aside enough time, but these are sooo good!
Thus ends the bread post—craft, story and recipe all in one!
