  1. Made the bread in the ziploc bag today – Yum! It turned out chewey inside and crisp outside. When you check it after 2 hours of proofing it does not look like much, but have no fear, it plumps up when it bakes. Use a rubber spatula to remove the dough from the cut bag – it comes right off. Great for kids – the mess of mixing and kneading is all in the bag.
