Dutch Oven Bread

This was so much fun to make! I was given the recipe by our neighbor and it sounded easy and fun, so I decided to give it a try. It was super easy and the results were fantastic! The bread looks so amazing, like something you would purchase at a bakery. And the bread was absolutely delicious!


3 c flour

1/4 tsp yeast

1/2 TBS salt


1 1/2 c water (max. Can add less)

1 TBS vinegar

Will be very sticky and "shaggy". Cover with plastic wrap and leave for 12-18 hours (yep! That's right! Put it in a corner in your kitchen and forget about it)

Knead into a ball, place on parchment paper, dust with flour, cover with plastic wrap, let rise 2 hours.

Heat oven 450. Put in dutch oven with lid. Let it preheat with the oven. (do this toward the end of the 2 hr rising time)

Cut X into top of ball. Quickly place bread, parchment paper and all, in dutch oven.

Bake with lid on for 30 min.

Bake another 20-30 min with lid off.
