This bread is sooo easy to make, no proofing and only 45 minutes in the oven. Thank you bread gods. Bonus: this little cider loaf is quite tasty as well. It's only slightly sweet, super soft on the inside with a great crunch in the crust. Mmm.

Simple, quick, and delicious! After snacking on this all day yesterday, we made french toast out of the rest of the loaf today and it was way good. Think about the bragging rights you can get out of making this, they don't need to know how easy it was, go on and talk yourself up.
