Kids will love this recipe because it doesn’t have to rise for hours. Parents will love this recipe because your home will smell delicious. In a gallon Ziploc bag combine flour, sugar, active dry yeast, and warm water. Let rest 10 minutes then add remaining flour, olive oil, and salt. Knead, place in two loaf pans, let rise for 30 minutes, and bake. Easy-peasy!
