I love this bread because it’s minimal ingredients, cooks up beautifully and super easy to make.


  • 1 3/4 Cup of Water about 125 degrees F
  • 1 1/2 TSP of Salt
  • 1/4 TSP. of Active Yeast
  • 3 Cups of Flour 
  • 2.5 qt Dutch Oven or Casserole Dish with lid
  • Non-Stick cooking spray
  • Cooking Thermometer


  1. Add 3 cups of flour, salt and and active yeast to a bowl. Mix then add warm Water. It will be a wet sticky dough, all the ingredients should be incorporated. 
  2. Place a towel over the bowl and cover for about 4 -24 hrs. I put the covered bowl on top of the fridge or on a high shelf.
  3. Using a spatula, fold the dough over onto itself about 20 times. It’s going to be sticky.   Cover it again and let it rise for an hour. 
  4. Spray the dutch oven or casserole dish with cooking spray. and plop the dough in with a spatula and cover with lid. Let the dough rise for about 20 minutes. 
  5. Then bake it at 450 F in a 2.5 qt casserole dish with lid (I use Corning ware) for 30 minutes, then another 10 -15 with the lid off for a golden, crispy top. 


You want the water to be warm enough to make the yeast activate(120F), but not to hot it can kill it,  over (130F).
