Ingredients
  

  • 3 cups all-purpose flour 413 grams whole-wheat works too
  • 1 teaspoon salt 5 grams
  • ½ teaspoon active dry yeast 3 grams
  • 1 ¾ cups warm water 400ml

Instructions
 

  • Mix all of your ingredients in a really big bowl until you have a very sticky dough. Cover it and let it rise at room temp overnight, place your dough ball somewhere away from drafts that could be in your microwave, in a cupboard, or in your cold oven.
  • The following day you can uncover it and flour your counter. Pour your dough out and flour it on top as well.
  • You don’t need to KNEAD it you can just move it around until you have a really nice and soft dough that is no longer sticky.
  • You can flour your loaf a little bit more if it still sticks to your hands. Place your loaf into ANY oven safe dish lined with parchment paper. Lid on, and place it in your oven that’s not pre-heated.
  • Turn on your oven to 450F and bake for 30 minutes, 30 minimum later uncover it and bake for another 25-30 minutes or less.
  • Bread is done once it’s nice and light and golden on each side. Let it cool 5-10 minutes and dig in! Enjoy. You can let it cool and cover it or wrap it up and store the bread on the counter. It will always be the best the same day.

Notes

If your dough is too dry you can add a touch more water, and if your dough is too wet you can add a touch more flour. Please always level of your flour with a knife before adding it to your bowl to have more precise measurements. I have not tried baking with foil if you don’t have a lid but it should work.

I have never made bread before until I found this recipe. I’ve always felt intimidated making anything that required yeast and flour. Not only was this recipe easy to follow with her spot on instructions but the results are so satisfying knowing you made it yourself from scratch. Crispy golden crust and warm delicious pillowy goodness inside. This has been my go to bread all thru out Covid.

I bought a new Pioneer woman cast iron dutch oven. It says not to go over 400. Should I try for 450 or can I cook it at 400?

I have always wanted to learn how to make bread. After some unsuccessful tryouts, I found The Modern Nonna in Tiktok and gave this recipe a try. This was A MA ZING. I have done this bread a lot of times and it always end up great and tasty. Then I followed her and now I am such a fan! 😀
