For me personally, bread is life. I love bread with all my heart especially this tasty dutch oven bread. I wanted to give up on it, but it was so hard. It’s like an addiction or something, but I can’t eat anything without it.
This time I am sharing very easy bread, and it comes out so perfect that you will not even believe it.
Dutch ovens distribute heat all around and the bread is securely snuggled in the middle. It allows the bread to bake evenly, and beautifully.
While it’s baking the heat captured inside also makes the bread to produce the steam so the bread really comes out amazing.
I believe when you use parchment paper, the bread comes out even better. On the other hand, you can most definitely use the only drizzle of good oil and a sprinkle of cornmeal to prevent the bread from sticking.
As I said so many times, I make bread on a daily basis for a long, long time, and my family loves it.
If you never made a bread please do consider trying. My NO-KNEAD BREAD is one of the most popular recipes on my blog. You can even bake that bread in a dutch oven. It is so easy and most definitely delicious.
I have been making bread for over 20 years so I could make it with my eyes closed, so I really tried to explain the best as I could so you guys could make it at home too.
I made this bread in Xtrema Ceramic Cookware (Ceramcor) Dutch Oven. However, I also tested exactly the same in their 2.5 Qt Covered Saucepan and 3.5 Qt Covered Saucepan, as well as 10″ Covered Short Handled Skillet.
I got to tell you, it was amazing. I just love Xtrema Cookware as well we Bakeware so do check them out.
Also, I made it in other dutch ovens as well. Whatever pan you have that is deeper and with a fitted lid, I know you can use it. This bread recipe you can make in the smaller or a larger than 5 qt. The dough will either expand and fill the gap or bake higher.
Dutch Oven that I recommend:
- Xtrema 10.5 Qt. Versa 100% Ceramic Black Dutch Oven
- Lodge 6 Quart Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven. Classic Red Enamel Dutch Oven
- Le Creuset Shallow Dutch French Oven, 6.75 quarts, Cerise
