Testing out social media’s easy bread recipes

Everyone has been baking up a storm lately and three easy bread recipes have come up tops. They use 1, 2,3 ingredients respectively

I tried out all three and thought I’d give you the recipe and my opinion.

The top easy bread recipes seem to be the three ingredient mayonnaise rolls, two ingredient naan and one ingredient “roti”

3 ingredient mayonnaise rolls

I found these slightly sweet, soft and morish, I also made a version with black poppy seeds and mature cheddar and it was super yum.

2 cups self-rising flour
1 cup milk
3 tablespoons mayonnaise (heaping)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Oil or spray a 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients. Spoon evenly into the prepared muffin tin.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve immediately

2 ingredient naan

This is the recipe people use for simply everything from pizza dough to donuts (I am people) Naan is a traditional Indian flat bread, I don’t know how traditional this is but it sure is yum, I mixed in some garlic and herbs and ate way more than I probably should have

200g Greek-style yoghurt
1 3/4 cups (260g) self-raising flour

Mix ingredients until a soft dough forms
Knead on a floured surface until smooth.
Cut into even pieces and roll into ovals.
Heat a greased pan on high.
Cook for two minutes each side – or until cooked through.

1 ingredient roti

Roti is a type of flatbread served with Indian food. Calling this roti feels like a stretch but I must say that it’s delicious, it’s easy and it will do on a bind.

1 roll ready made pastry

Remove plastic
Reroll tight like a swissroll
Cut into 6 slices
Roll out and fry as you would a roti

Making granola in the airfryer

I made granola in the airfryer and I’m pretty sure this is the only way I’m doing it from now on.

It’s inexpensive quick and you control exactly what goes in there

What I used

  • Two cups of oats
  • Package of trail mix (you can add nuts and fruit of your choice)
  • Chia seeds (optional)
  • Three table spoons of oil
  • Two tablespoons of honey
  • Table spoon of brown sugar (optional)
  • Cinnamon (optional)

What I did

  • I mixed the dry ingredients together
  • I covered it in an oil and honey mixture
  • Put in air fryer for 5min
  • Shake everything around
  • Sprinkled sugar and cinnamon ontop
  • Back in air fryer for 3-5min
  • Leave it to cool
  • Break up clusters that have formed and enjoy

The Laundromat (Netflix review)

(Odette Parfitt) I feel like a lot of the movies on Netflix tend towards the romcom side of things, so in the spirit of variety…

The Laundromat (2019)

Basic plot: Tannie Ellen needs to make an insurance claim after a terrible accident and realises she is dealing with a bunch of crooks, and proceeds to go all the way down the rabbit hole to make them pay for it. (That is about as much as I can safely say without spoilers.)
