Today is all about easy recipes, which I can tell you happens a lot more than anything else in my house!
I’m Kari, one of the 3 bloggers of CraftCreateCook and I’m happy to be guest posting here at Practical Mommy! I’m a graphic designer and mom of 2 (three if you count the dog) and I love to create home decor items, easy and elaborate recipes and kid’s crafts.
The main reason I choose easy recipes is simply because I don’t have enough time. Sure, I work from home and freelance, but honestly, there’s no extra time in my day to even get a few extra things done.
Before I know it, my daughter is getting off the bus and I’m zipping to day care to grab my son and throw something at my family for dinner. That’s a pretty typical day for me. You’d think I’d be able to do a few loads of laundry and maybe make dinner on time, but nope, it doesn’t happen.
Of course once I cook dinner, then my kids basically just throw it away because they rarely eat what I feed them! And I refuse to make them an additional meal. Let’s stay focused and get to the real reason I’m here, today — to share my easy bread recipe!
3 Ingredient Triple Berry Bread
This triple berry bread is absolutely amazing. It tastes delicious and it’s super easy to make. I think it’s quicker than making a “quick” bread in any recipe book!
2 cups self rising flour
1 cup white sugar
1 package (12oz) frozen triple berry fruit, thawed
Preheat oven to 350 and grease a loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour and sugar and mix well. Stir in fruit and juices. Mix well. You’ll start to wonder if I’m crazy, because at first the batter will be very stiff and almost dough like. Just keep mixing (and maybe get in a little arm workout) and before you know it, you’ll have gorgeous berry colored batter.
Pour batter into the prepared pan and bake for 40-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool until just warm and serve with some butter.
Now If you’re not a fan of “triple berry” you can certainly substitute any of your favorite frozen berry flavors – Strawberry, Blackberry, Blueberry or Raspberry. Just make sure you thaw the berries first and stir in all of the juices. My 12 oz bag of frozen fruit, when thawed measured about 1-1/2 cups of fruit and juices. If you measure yours and it’s more, just take out a little juice. If it’s less, add in a bit of water.
You won’t be disappointed in how much flavor this bread has, plus, it’s naturally colored by the berries in the mix!
Now since you’re stuck with this entire bag of self rising flour, what on earth are you going to do with it? (It’s truly one of my pet peeves to have to buy an entire package of something and you’re only using a small amount for a recipe.) You’re going to make my 2 ingredient Pizza Dough and have Pizza Night for dinner!

And another one of my favorite go-to recipes (although it doesn’t use self rising flour) is make ahead french toast casserole. We eat this for dinner, for lunch and for breakfast! My family loves it and I love that I can make it the day before.
Finally, if you’re up for some serious decadent no bake sweet treats, make this Reese’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Cup Fudge. But I’m warning you. If you share it, you’ll be certain it will be gone in no time.
