Title: I'm Hooked On This Bread!

I've made this recipe 4 times now with only one failure. My attempt to use whole wheat flour.

Other than that, it's produced a loaf that rivals the best "Artisan" loaf produced locally. It's crispy with a sort of chewy texture and a really pleasant taste. Makes good sandwiches and great toast.

I'm making French Toast with it tonight for dinner.

Super simple cook.
3 c. Unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 tsp active yeast
1 tsp table salt
1 tbsp sugar
1 1/2 c. Hot tap water

Mix dry ingredients
Add hot water
Blend to a shaggy dough
Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit on the counter for 4-6 hours.

Preheat oven and a Dutch oven to 450 degrees
Turn dough out onto a piece of parchment paper., place in hot Dutch oven, cover with lid and return to oven for 30-35 minutes.

That's it!

I've added toasted sesame seeds and a light coat of butter to the dough. I just can't leave anything alone.

That looks awesome ! What size dutch oven are you using and I'm assuming cast iron ?

I don't have a cast iron pot. Just my 6 quart soup pot. It's oven safe and heats up faster than cast iron. You could use anything with a lid. The crispness comes from high-temperature and  the steam being captured in the pot. Some folks use a pan of water in the oven and bake it on a cookie sheet lined with parchment. I can't see why.

It's a pretty foolproof recipe the way it is.

Sounds great. Made one yesterday. Finally got the sesame seeds to stick with an egg wash coating. Gave the loaf a nice shine as well.

I've switched over to the "poor man's Dutch oven" method.
2 nonstick loaf pans clipped with binder clips.

Same bread mixture except I've been letting mine proof for 4-5 hours. No preheating of the pan is required. Just preheat the oven to 400* ( not 450). Bake 30-35 minutes.

Makes beautiful sandwich bread.

Nice RG I made another loaf yesterday in my cast iron Dutch oven,only problem is the bottom gets alot harder than rest of bread
I'm guessing it's from the real hot bottom of pot
Gonna try your method.

It definitely came out more evenly cooked in the loaf pans at a lower temperature.
