    Default Crusty Bread

    Its not a dutch oven but it is cast iron so here goes.

    Got this recipe from a very nice person over at the bradley forums.
    Gave it a try and here is how it came out.

    Crusty Bread

    3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
    1 3/4 teaspoons salt
    1/2 teaspoon yeast(Rapid Rise works for me)
    1 1/2 cups water

    In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast. Add water and mix until a shaggy mixture forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 12 - 18 hours. Overnight works great. DO NOT REFRIGERATE! Heat oven to 450 degrees. When the oven has reached 450 degrees place a cast iron pot with a lid in the oven and heat the pot for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, pour dough onto a heavily floured surface and shape into a ball. Very sticky, flour hands. Cover with plastic wrap and let set while the pot is heating. Remove hot pot from the oven and drop in the dough. Cover and return to oven for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the lid and bake an additional 15 minutes. Remove bread from oven and place on a cooling rack to cool.

    Added notes:
    I was in a hurry so didn't shape...just plopped in. I added 1 diced jalapeno and about a cup of med cheddar shredded. I always shred my own cheese so I don't know how pre shred works. You can really add what you want. One of our favorites is pecans and dried cherries. Do not over do the added more than 1 1/4 cup per batch. This recipe can be doubled.

    Mixed up a batch yesterday

    Added a cup of this

    Put in the oven over night with the light on, don't know why but mom always did that
    And out it came this morning.

    Formed it into the crusty bread ball

    Flop that into a cast iron pot and into the oven

    Out of the oven and cooling off

    Sliced open for testing. Yes this is good stuff. Thank You for posting this SiFumar. I have tried making bread before but this is very easy to do.
