It’s not as hard as you think to make your own bread, and it costs only 50¢ a loaf with this four-ingredient recipe. You don’t even need a bread maker.

Getting the right kind of flour and fresh yeast are the secrets to making this recipe work. Other than that, all you need to do is combine the ingredients, let it rise on the counter all day, shape it into a round loaf, let it rest for one hour, and then bake. It really isn’t any more complicated than making a slow cooker meal.
