The bread is made with a combination of bread flour and all-purpose flour, giving it a tender and light texture. This bread is a great option for those who prefer a more mild flavor in their bread as it is not heavily seasoned.
The recipe starts with mixing the ingredients together to form a soft dough.The dough is then allowed to rise until doubled in size, then shaped into a round loaf and placed in a Dutch oven. The bread is baked in the Dutch oven, which creates a steamy environment that helps produce a crispy crust and a tender crumb. The result is a delicious and satisfying loaf of bread that can be enjoyed on its own or used for sandwiches, toast, or bread pudding.
