Easy French Bread in a Dutch Oven

Easy French Bread in a Dutch Oven

4 cups of bread flour (King Arthur is best)
2 t. salt
2 1/2 t. instant yeast (I like this kind, which I store in a quart jar in the freezer)
1 1/2 cups water
Cornmeal for sprinkling

  • First step is Combine all ingredients to form a smooth, soft dough, and knead. If you do this in a bread machine on the dough cycle, life will be good. Otherwise, a stand mixer with a dough hook will work, and will take about 7-9 minutes on a low setting.
  • And then, Allow dough to rise, covered, in a warm place. It will take about 60 minutes in a setting that is about 90 degrees. You can use an oven that has been slightly warmed and then turned off or sunny windowsill. (The bread machine takes care of this for you too.)
