Recipe by Chef Come Lately

A yeasty, single rise, white bread baked in a casserole bowl. This was my mother's go-to recipe to accompany a hearty soup, stew, or chili. Good for a pot-luck dinner. I've been known to pair it with a strong cheese and nice wine.. for a romantic picnic.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Using a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  2. Stir in sugar, salt, softened butter or margarine, and 3 cups of the flour. Blend until smooth.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, beat in remaining cup of flour.
  4. Cover bowl with wax paper, or plastic wrap. loosely. Not tight. Let bowl sit in warm, dry place , out of a draft, to rise for about 45 minutes. It will more than double in bulk.
  5. Again using a wooden spoon, beat down the mixture for about a half minute. Place in a greased glass or ceramic bowl for baking.
  6. Bake at 375°F for 50 - 55 minutes.
  7. Remove from oven and cool on rack for a few minutes. Pop out of bowl, and let cool a bit more. Serve warm in wedges with butter. or your favorite soup, stew, or chili. Or maybe with a hunk of great cheese and a bottle of wine!
