I love homemade bread - too much, actually, because when I make it, I don't want anything else. A beef or chicken sandwich for dinner, bread and butter and jelly for breakfast, bread and soup for lunch...but when the weather gets hot, there's no way I'm going to fire up the oven to bake it. There are two options and I use both of them at different times.
First, there's fried yeast bread. I've written about this elsewhere (and maybe here, too) several times, but basically, you just use a recipe for yeast loaf bread and instead of baking it, you fry it. After it's all kneaded and rested for a few minutes, pinch off walnut size pieces, flatten them and let them rest a moment while the skillet heats up. If you have a nonstick or a cast iron, you won't absolutely need oil, but it tastes better if you use a little. In a skillet that needs oil, use just enough to keep it from sticking. Heat the skillet to medium heat and fry the bread until itls browned on each side. Brush it with a little butter while it's still hot.
The other way I make bread when it's too hot to use the oven is in a solar oven. It's an art and a science but it's fun no matter how you look at it. You can buy solar ovens all ready to go or you can make your own inexpensively. Either way, it costs nothing at all to operate.
