Dutch oven bread

  • 3 1/2 cups of flour (or 4 cups whole wheat flour)
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt (or 2 tsp salt for WW flour)
  • 1/2 tsp instant dry yeast (or 3/4 tsp for WW flour)

Mix together then add:

  • 1 3/4 cups of luke warm water (or 2 cups for WW flour)

Gently stir altogether with a fork, until all the flour is wet. No need to stir until it’s smooth.

Let it rise for 8-12 (12-16 for WW) hours in covered bowl at room temperature

Sprinkle with some whole wheat flour and punch the dough down, fold it a few times on itself and make a ball that is well sprinkled with flour to not stick.

Heat oven at 450F with dutch oven inside, for ~45min while the dough rises again to double its size

Place dough in heated dutch oven and cook 30min with lid on, and then 30 more minutes with lid off

Let cool and enjoy!
