Nigella Lawson is a domestic goddess. I’ve long been a fan of the sassy Brit. She has an ease and a joy in the kitchen that I both envy and attempt to emulate. I have three of her cookbooks and I’ve read them each in their entirety. Too much love for Nigella or not enough? You decide.
Lazy loaf from Nigella Express is just that- real bread for lazy people. Kneading and rising need not apply.
Unsugared muesli is also required. I’ve tried many of Bob’s Red Mill products and enjoyed them all. Dependable and again, easy to find. I’m no stranger to going to 4 different stores in a day for random ingredients, but I recognize that not everyone loves grocery shopping like I do.
Grease a loaf pan and plop the dough inside. Smooth the dough out so it’s even. One interesting note about this recipe is that you start it in a cold oven and then turn it on. This allows the dough to proof and rise a bit inside the oven.
Don’t be fooled though- this is a not a light, airy bread. Some have complained that there’s didn’t rise at all…so? It’s delicious. Eat it. If you want a cream puff, make some profiteroles.
Nigella said this would take 45 minutes at 225 and then 1 hour at 350. Mine really took about an hour and a half at 350.
