Easiest Bread Recipe....EVER!!!

Happy Monday Everybody......Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!!  I just wanted to quickly share something I came across on Pinterest (the pin linked back to !!

I'm trying to actually make some of the things I find on Pinterest so I can justify all the time I spend there!!!  LOL

For years I have shyed away from making homemade have to understand my Momma was Italian and made some of the best bread I've ever eaten!!!  We would come home from school and she would have fresh bread waiting for us....AMAZING!!!

So, when I saw the pic of this bread, I thought maybe it was time to give it a shot!!!

SO..GLAD..I..DID!!!.......Isn't she pretty!!!!

Click on the pictures to get a better view

Now keep in mind this bread is not baked in your standard bread's baked in a Dutch oven, so it's very rustic looking....just like the one's you see in those European style bakeries!!! YAY!!!

Crusty Rustic Bread

3 cups all-purpose flour
1 3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. yeast

Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl

Add: 1 1/2 cups water

Stir together until combined

Cover with plastic wrap and let set for 12 to 18 hours on the countertop...DO NOT REFRIGERATE!!!
I started mine in the evening and let it set worked out well for me!!!

After 12 hours the dough will look kind of sticky...

Preheat your oven to 450 degrees
Place your EMPTY Dutch oven with cover in preheated oven for 30 minutes.  While your pan is heating in the oven, turn the dough out onto a well floured cotton towel and cover with plastic wrap....let sit for the 30 min. that the pan is in the oven

When the pan comes out of the oven transfer the dough to the Dutch oven carefully, cover and bake for 30 minutes covered.....after 30 min. remove the cover and bake for an additional 15 minutes.

Here it out of the oven!!!
It is definitely the easiest bread recipe.....
I hope you'll give it a try!!!
'Til Next Time...
