Making Bread at home with our children is fun, and is totally satisfying. This simple, basic bread recipe is easy to make and is so delicious you will want to make bread everyday.
Here is the recipe, hope you try!
3 cups all purpose flour
2 teaspoons kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon instant yeast
1 1/2 cups slightly warmer than lukewarm water
In a medium large bowl, mix the flour, salt, and yeast together. Pour the water over the flour mixture and mix with a spoon until the flour is absorbed and the mixture resembles wet sticky dough. Cover the bowl with either plastic wrap, foil, or a clean, wet, kitchen towel. Place the bowl in a warm place. Allow the dough to rest overnight.
Cut a piece of parchment paper slightly smaller than the base of the pot. Place the parchment paper inside the pot. Sprinkle just enough flour on the dough to be able to scoop the dough out with your hand without being too sticky. Place the loosely form dough ball in the center of the pot, on top of the parchment paper. Place a oven-safe lid on top of the pot and place it in the cold oven.
Turn the oven on to 450F and set a kitchen timer for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, carefully remove the lid from the pot and bake for an additional 30 minutes. Remove the pot from the oven and carefully remove loaf from the pot. Allow the bread to rest for 5 minutes before cutting into slices.
