This bread is super easy to make, but make sure you plan it in advance, as it takes about 24 hours from start to finish. :) We absolutely love it! The nice crust and soft middle are simply amazing. You can use a Dutch Oven or a regular non stick large pan (that's what I use). Enjoy!
-3 cups flour
-1 1/2 tsp salt
-1 tsp yeast
-1 1/2 cups lukewarm water
In your mixer's bowl, combine flour, salt and yeast. Pour the water and mix until well combined.
Leave the messy dough in the bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter for 15-18 hours (overnight).
Preheat the oven to 450 F. As you set it, place the pan you'll be using in the oven (it needs to be at oven temperature when you place the dough in it).
While the oven is preheating, flour your kitchen counter. Place dough on top and shape into a nice bowl. Cover loosely with the wrap you used over night.
Once oven is preheated, using oven mitts, remove the pan. Add a sheet of parchment paper and place the dough on top. Cover with a lid and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes.
Remove the lid and continue baking for 10-15 more minutes or until nice and golden brown.
Carefully, remove pan from the oven. Remove bread from pan and let it cool completely on wire rack. Slice and enjoy!
