One of our favourite food hacks is making fresh bread without a breadmaker. If you own a pressure cooker, you can make delicious and rich-tasting loaves at home in under 20 minutes.
Laura at Hip Pressure Cooking (the same smart site that showed us how to cook eggs in a pressure cooker) details this interesting bread-making technique. You'll need some sort of container, like a coffee can or heatproof glass measuring cup, and just a few simple ingredients (flour, bicarb soda, yoghurt). After pressure cooking for 15-20 minutes you should get a warm loaf (even faster than baking bread in a slow cooker). The bread doesn't come out crunchy, but you can quickly grill a few slices or put them under the grill for some crust.
The pressure cooker is a wonderfully versatile kitchen tool. One of the best things about this, besides saving time, is you avoid heating up your kitchen with the oven.
