  • 12" Dutch Oven (5 quart)


  • 3 cups white bread flour
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. yeast rapid rise
  • 1 ½ cups water warm

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees
  • Add dough to Dutch oven and bake for 30 minutes covered
  • Uncover and bake for 10-15 minutes

If you do not have rapid rise yeast, you can use regular yeast. Let rise for 12 hours in that case.

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.

    I use this recipe quite often. I only use 1/4 tsp of yeast and let it rise 18 hrs. Turns out great every time. I add raisins on occasion for something different. Definitely pre heat the Dutch oven!
