1 hour from start to finish.

This bread was not only an emergency but an accident - with a pleasant ending I must add. I have started making bread and suddenly I realized that I was out of yeast! Oh, snap! But since I have had all the ingredients already mixed up I have decided to take the chance and add baking powder instead. And it worked wonders! They say that the best foods come from culinary accidents... Well, this is absolutely right!

Enough chitchat! Here is the recipe!
