What do you do when you get into the kitchen having a mood of baking a bread and when you open your cupboard you find you run out of yeast !!!

So if you ever want to surprise your family by baking a nice bread with just 4 steps and in less than 45 minutes(which includes the preparation time !), here is the recipe.
