Homemade Artisan Bread – 3 Ingredients!
I would never have believed that this bread was made from 3 ingredients. Its soft, yeasty and even has a crispy crust. The preheated dutch oven this bread bakes in magically forms the crust dreams are made of.
  • 1 1/2cups watervery warm
  • 1 1/2tbsp yeast
  • 3 1/2cups bread flourI use freshly milled – if you are using fresh flour, you will need to “pack”it in the measuring cup
  • 1 1/2tsp Salt
Recipe Notes

Combine water & yeast in bowl and set aside so the yeast can activate.  While yeast is activating, mix flour & salt together in a separate bowl.

After yeast is foamy and bubbly add the flour mixture & stir with wooden spoon until just combined.  It will be a weird, floury mess.

Cover in plastic wrap and let sit on your kitchen counter for 12-20 hours.  The dough will double in size.

Flour the dough just enough to handle.  Shape into a ball pulling the dough around from the top around toward the bottom.  This will stretch the dough and give you a smooth top. Don’t stretch the yeast too far or it will break.

After you shape it into a ball, place on some parchment paper & cover with plastic wrap.  Let rise 1 – 1 & 1/2 hours.

15 minutes before baking, put your dutch oven & lid into the oven and turn it up to 350.  Slide the dough ball (parchment paper & all) into the hot, dutch oven and put the lid on.

Bake 30 minutes at 350 degrees.

Let cool 10 minutes before slicing.  Serve warm.
