I don't remember where I found this recipe, I've been using it for the past 3 or 4 years. I wish I knew where the recipe came from so I could credit the source!
It's SOOOOOOO easy :) I can even throw it together right before I go to bed, when I'm exhausted, it takes less than 5 minutes to get going!!
Here's the recipe: In a large bowl, mix 3 c flour, 1tsp salt, 1tsp yeast, and 1 1/2 cup warm water. I just mix it with a little spoon and it looks kind of sloppy, like this:
At this point, I cover it with plastic wrap and a towel and leave it till morning!
In the morning it's time to bake...this bakes up nicely in a cast iron pan with a lid (I don't have a lid, so I just cover it with another pan!)
|Looks a lot different in the morning, kind of bubbly and slimy-ish|
Preheat your oven AND your greased pan to 450F. I pull the preheated pan out of the oven and just dump the dough in and cover it with another greased cast iron pan.
|I just dump it into the preheated (greased) cast iron pan.|
|I don't have a lid, so another cast iron pan works well! :)|
That's it! it makes a delicious loaf of bread with a nice chewy consistency and a beautiful golden chewy crust.
Here's a picture of it being used in toasted cheese sandwiches from a couple years ago (you can read about that here: toasted-cheese-sandwiches-revitalized
So go ahead! Mix up some bread tonight and tomorrow you'll be happy you did!
