Easy Homemade Bread

Easy Homemade Bread

Introduction

Even if you have never made bread before, you can make this. It's so easy! And much more delicious and healthy than store-bought bread! Even if you have never made bread before, you can make this. It's so easy! And much more delicious and healthy than store-bought bread!
Number of Servings: 12

Ingredients

    3 C Bread Flour (or all-purpose, but it will affect quality a bit)
    1 packet Active Yeast (.25 oz)
    1.5 tsp Salt
    1.5 C lukewarm Water
    2 Tbsp Olive Oil

Directions

-Mix your dry ingredients together in a bowl (Make sure itís big enough for the water to fit AND for the bread to double in size)

-Add water and stir until itís a doughy mass (doesnít need to be perfect so donít go crazy!)

-Cover the bowl with plastic wrap held on by a rubber band OR just buy some of those plastic wrap bowl covers with the built-in elastic, like I did.

-Leave it out on the counter (but out of reach of curious pets!) for 4 hours, moving it to the fridge if you want it to sit longer (apparently itís better if you let it sit a day or two)

-Clean your counter off & coat it in a thin sheen of olive oil

-Flip your dough onto the counter and fold it over a couple of times.

-If itís been refrigerated, let your dough sit for at least 30 min, covered in plastic wrap, till it drops to room temperature (keep an eye on pets!)

-Meanwhile, move your oven rack to the lower 1/3 of your oven and preheat it to 450*

-Place a big (Oven safe!) pot or dutch oven with lid in the oven to preheat as well. For flatter bread, use a wider pot and vice versa.

-Carefully remove the pot from the oven and put your dough inside. Put the lid back on and place it in the oven again.

-Bake for 30 min, covered. Then, remove the lid and bake up to an additional 15 min. Keep an eye on the uncovered bread so it doesnít burn!

-Flip your bread onto a wire cooling rack and let cool completely before slicing!
