Homemade homemaker bread and ice cream :)

As most of you know, I love easy, simple and few ingredient recipes. I love this bread recipe for that reason... it's simple and fast. I got it from my mother-in-law who is a fantastic cook. You can use it for bread, dough for pizza, dough for calzones, rolls, even a lot of dessert.

1/4 Cup Sugar
1/2 T Salt
1/2 T Yeast
1 1/2 T Lecithin
2 Cup Hot Water
5 1/4 Cup flour ( or wheat)

Mix all ingredients for 1 minute. Knead for 5 mins. Let rise 25 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes.
We experimented with different shapes of bread and different toppings. We made some croissants, some cheese bread and some cinnamon bread.
We also made some ice cream. I debated putting this picture up because it doesn't even start to depict how delicious the ice cream was. We made peach cinnamon and let me tell you- it was great! All I can potray from this picture is notice how empty the container is... we gobbled it up! Jessica with ingredients to come :)
