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.

I switched over to a 3 quart Corning casserole lined with parchment , covered at 400* for 30 minutes. Then 10-15 minutes uncovered. Best results yet.

I've seen his videos.  And a dozen others as well. He's a pretty meticulous guy.

My conclusion is that this method is so forgiving you can make it just about any way you want. The method I posted here is what I've settled on. Mostly because my Bride and I really like the taste and texture of this recipe. Also the round loaf done in the casserole lined with parchment ends up with a nice crispy crust all around the loaf. I've let it fire for anywhere from 3-12 hours and can't tell the difference in the finished loaf.

Only thing I do that seemed to make a smoother textured loaf is I knead the dough gently about 10-15 times before putting it in the casserole to proof a second time. It's more of kneading it into a ball than anything else. Pretty much the same thing I do to pasta dough.

I played around with the "poor man's Dutch oven" a couple times. Makes a good sandwich loaf but comes out a bit more dense than the casserole.
 For your rolls....did you use a sheet pan of water in the oven while you were baking them?

I've been trying to think of a way to make hot dog rolls out of this dough.
I'm happy everyone is having fun with this.

I did not use a pan of water, I'll try that next time. It was my first time trying it, I usually use our bread machine.

The added moisture will crisp the crust very nicely.

I'm on a mission to make hot dog and hamburger rolls today. We shall see!

Local stores are out of flour and yeast  :cursing: :cursing: though I can get flour easy enough since my family owns a restaurant, but thereís still no bread yeast. I may have to sacrifice some of my wine yeast to do this with, though that is in short supply for me too. Not a huge fan of sourdough so not going there.

Buy your yeast online. I'm going to buy bulk soon. I have plenty for now.

This video makes it look way simpler (and overall less messy) than I ever thought!  His other videos have the dry ingredients being mixed first, which is the way Iíve always been taught as well, but  doing it like this seems even easier.


Still looking for yeast however.
