What a silly name! Our family first had this bread when on a visit to see Aunt Marcella and Uncle Mike. Aunt Marcella prepared such a lovely dinner and served this bread. It was delicious and we all asked for more. We also asked for the name and she told us it was "Idiot Bread". We thought that was a very strange name for bread and asked her how it came by that name. She said it was so simple, even an idiot could make it! I still think it needs a new name! But the recipe needs to stay exactly the same! It is fast, easy, and delicious!
- 1 Tbsp. yeast
- 2 cups warm water
- 1 Tbsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. salt
- 4 cups all-purpose flour
Dissolve the yeast in the water. Add sugar, salt, and flour. Stir well. Spread into a greased, 9 x 13 in pan. Let rise for 1 hour. Pour 1/2 stick of melted butter or margarine over the top. Sprinkle with parsley, garlic powder, and Parmesean cheese. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 - 45 minutes (until golden brown).
Flavorful, quick and easy, and delicious with so many things!
