OMG I have seriously found the best, most easy, too good to be true bread recipe! I was totally skeptical, the whole if it sounds too good to be true is probably is, but it really is amazing! It comes out looking like artisan bread, you know the stuff we all pay way to much money for. Thick chewy crust, moist middle, air pockets, the whole nine yards.
|The first loaf I made|
|I can't believe it is this pretty!|
3 cups flour
1.75 tsp salt
.5 tsp yeast (I was just a tinge generous with the second loaf and it fluffed up better)
1.75 cups water
Stir together. I add a cup of water and stir and then slowly add the rest as I stir, you don't want the dough too runny or too dry. Then just let it sit overnight in the bowl.
Come morning turn the oven to 425 and preheat oven and bread pot. Put dough into hot pot with lid on. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, remove lid, bake 10 to 15 minutes. When the bread is beautiful remove from oven. Let it sit for 5 minutes and then remove from pot.
My next step is to try adding 'stuff,' I'm looking forward to a garlic rosemary loaf.
Try making some bread and be ready to be impressed!
