Large Family No-Knead Overnight White/Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread

No knead bread

One of the easiest ways to cut the family food budget is by buying your flour in bulk and making your own bread from scratch.  As a busy, homeschooling mom of 7, I have found this super fast, overnight white/whole wheat sandwich bread a real life saver. There is no kneading, only mixing well the night before.

This recipe will fill TWO large loaf pans (11″ x 4″) and will last our family for two days.

I hope you enjoy this basic bread recipe.

Enjoy!
