Ree Drummond is pretty much the bread queen. She’s known among her family and friends as the person who always makes the bread for gatherings. She wrote about her delicious bread in a Pioneer Woman blog post simply titled “The Bread.” Drummond says she smiles whenever someone asks if she’s making bread partly because it’s easy to prepare and it tastes so good. Here’s what she posted about her exchanges with family and friends:

Whenever I have a friend or family member over for dinner, they will ask the following question: “Are you making The Bread?” And I always smile and say: “Yes. I am making The Bread.” I smile because it’s a foregone conclusion that I will be making The Bread. I smile because The Bread is so darn delicious and no one who tastes it can believe it contains only two ingredients. I smile because it’s probably the easiest, simplest, effortless thing I make. I smile. Because butter is involved.

If you’re interested in learning how to prepare bead just like Drummond, you’ll only need a few ingredients. Her basic bread recipe calls for a loaf of French bread and two sticks of butter. If you love butter as much as Drummond does, this recipe is for you. She instructs home cooks to spread one stick of butter on each half of the loaf. Drummond explains why her recipe calls for so much butter:

“Split a loaf of French bread in half, then spread one stick of room-temperature butter all over the surface,” wrote Drummond in her bread instructions. “That’s one stick per half loaf. Yes, you read that right. The idea here is that every speck of the surface of the bread needs to be coated.” The full instructions for this recipe can be found on the blog.
