Baking bread is an incredibly complicated craft, isn’t it? Only reserved for real bread nerds, who know everything about rising and yeast and all kinds of flour? Not anymore . This magical, simple recipe shows you the trick for a homemade bread.
For 1 homemade bread:
- 360 grams of flour
- 1/2 teaspoon yeast
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 350 ml water at room temperature
- Cast iron pan with lid
As is always the case with tricks, there are a few things to keep in mind for the success of this recipe from Pinch of Yum .
You first need a sturdy, cast iron pan (a pan that you also use for stews and sauces), with a lid that can go in the oven.
You also need to make the dough 12 to 18 hours in advance. That’s how long it takes to rise. Do this the day or night before. By the way, the dough is ready within five minutes, so it’s not worth it.
This is how you make this magical homemade bread
So start 12 to 18 hours in advance. Mix the dry ingredients well in a large bowl (e.g. with a whisk). Then add the water and stir with a spoon until a coarse dough forms. If you need more water, add one or more tablespoons very carefully. A reassuring message: it’s supposed to look so weird.
Cover the dough in the bowl with plastic wrap and let it rise at room temperature. Go to bed and dream about golden brown homemade bread.
The next day you will see that the dough has increased in volume and that bubbles and holes have appeared in it. We want that!
Preheat the oven to 230 degrees. Once the oven is hot, place the pan in the hot oven for 30 minutes.
In the meantime, remove the dough from the bowl, dust it with flour and place it rolled up into a nice round on a piece of baking paper.
When the pan is very hot, remove it carefully from the oven and place the dough with baking paper and all in the hot pan. Cover it and put it in the oven for 30 minutes.
Remove the lid from the pan and let the bread bake for 10 to 15 minutes until golden brown.
Eat the bread still warm from the oven, with a good lick of butter (or herb butter ) and sea salt. You never want anything else.
