Century Bread

Century Bread

YES! This is it. The bread of the century. I found it. Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. OMG. Really, I am dancing around. So far the breads I have made in the past call for a lot of eggs and some call for nut butter, which can be really expensive. This one is simple and uses a bread machine! Just wait until you try it, and let me know what you think!

Since I am used to the grainy non-sweet breads of Germany, I only use 1 Tbsp of coconut sugar. If you prefer a sweeter bread add 1-2 more tablespoons. You need some sugar to activate the yeast, so don’t eliminate it totally.

If you’re avoiding grains altogether try my Grain Free Cassava Century Bread!
