Ever since we got this recipe, we've been wanting to try it. But we didn't have the proper equipment to bake the bread. That is, until now.
- 3 cups of all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon of active yeast
- 1 1/2 teaspoon of salt
- 1 1/2 cups of water
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place heavy Dutch oven or other oven safe lidded pot in oven. Heat pot for at least 30 minutes. Tip the dough into the hot pot. Sprinkle with salt or seeds (we used sesame seeds), cover with lid and bake for 30 minutes. Uncover the pot and bake for another 15 to 30 minutes until browned as desired.
The crust is nice and flaky and the bread itself is chewy and tender. The bread is paired with some homemade kumquat marmalade. Mmm, delicious.
