Having a baby is one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life. It brings with it many changes, including your diet and schedule. If you are breastfeeding, you might have to eat more frequently than before because your body needs more calories to produce milk for your little one. However, if you’re not breastfeeding, then there’s no reason why you can’t help yourself to something delicious as often as possible! This bread-in-a-bag recipe from The Nest is an easy way to make homemade bread without all the work that goes into traditional baking methods. Once cooled off completely, this loaf makes great toast or sandwiches!

prep: 45 mins cook: 35 mins total: 80 mins Servings: 10 Yield: 10 servings
1 cup warm water
3 tablespoons white sugar
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 tablespoons non-fat dry milk
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 (.25 ounce) package rapid rise yeast
1 ½ teaspoons salt
In a large resealable freezer bag, combine 1 cup of flour, sugar, yeast and warm water. Squeeze most of the air out of the bag, and seal. Squish with your hands until the well blended. Set aside to rest for 10 minutes at room temperature, or until bubbles appear.
In a separate bowl, stir together 1 cup of flour, dry milk, oil and salt. Pour into the resealable bag and squeeze out most of the air. Seal, and squish until well blended. Add the last cup of flour to the bag, and continue mixing in the same manner until well blended.
Remove the dough from the bag, and place on a floured surface. Knead for 5 to 8 minutes. Form into a small loaf, and place in a greased 8×4 inch loaf pan. Cover with a towel, and allow to rise for about 30 minutes, or until your finger leaves an impression when you poke the top of the loaf gently.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
Bake the bread for 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown.
