This recipe was entered in the contest for Your Best Recipe with Yeast.

I was looking for easy bread recipe, and came across one from another blog. I changed a couple of things- the amount of salt, and I added honey. This bread is delicious, easy and stays fresh for a couple of days!

Makes 2 big loaves; 3 smaller loaves

  • 1 1/3 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 6.5 cups all-purpose flour
  1. Mix the yeast, salt, water and honey in a large bowl. Stir with a spoon until the yeast and honey dissolve completely.
  2. Then add the flour, continue mixing until it is fully incorporated with the wet ingredients.
  3. Cover the dough with a dish towel and allow it rest for at least 2 hours (although the longer the better).
  4. After the dough has risen, take half of it out (the other half can be stored in the fridge) onto a floured surface. Shape it into a ball, or any shape you’d like.
  5. Preheat the oven to 450ºF. As you turn on the oven, put the dutch oven (or corningware) into the oven at the same time. When the oven reaches 450ºF, take out the dutch oven and place the dough inside. Cover and bake for 30 minutes. Then cook for another 15 minutes, uncovered, or until the top is a light brown.
  6. Take out the bread from the oven, and allow it to cool off on a wire rack. Enjoy it fresh!
