Another Bread Experiment

I have tried a new bread recipe.  A slight variance in ingredients whereas this one uses 1 teaspoon of yeast.

Here is the recipe:

3 cups of flour

2 tsp of salt

1 tsp of active dry yeast (I now buy the little jars of yeast)

1 and 2/3 cups of hot water (I just let my tap water get hot and use that)

Mix flour, salt and yeast together.  Add water and mix it all up – comes together quickly.  Cover it with a towel and let rise for 18 to 24 hours (depending on my work schedule).  Dump it onto a floured surface and form it into a ball, let it rise for 2 hours and put it in my Dutch Oven that has been sitting in a 45o degree oven.

Put the lid on it and bake for 45 minutes.  Take the lid off and bake for 15 more minutes.  Dump it on a wire rack and let cool.

Note:  I make 2 batches, then combine both batches, let rise and put in Dutch Oven.  Makes for a big round loaf.

Check out these pics:

Nice size loaf - remember this is a 5qt Dutch Oven.
