1 1/2 cup of warm water (85-95 degress F)

1 tbsp. yeast

1 tsp. sugar

1 tsp. salt

pinch of baking soda

1-2 tbsp of butter, warm.



Tools you'll need

  2. mix dry ingredients (salt, baking soda, flour) into mixing bowl. When yeast mixture foams, slowly stir into dry ingredients. mix dough thoroughly.(if dough becomes too dry, add a tbsp or two of oil)
  3. Cover mixing bowl with clear wrap or a baker's towel and let rise in a warm spot for 3-4 hours.
  4. Oil your dutch oven well, including sides. Add warm butter to the bottom of the pan (and sides if you want extra buttery goodness)
  5. remove cover from dough, which should have expanded 2-3 times in size. Wet hands with oil, allowing excess to drip into dough. Scoop out dough with oiled hands and work it, shaping it into a ball.
  6. Place dough in dutch oven and add lid. place immediately into cool oven. Turn oven on to 450 degrees and set timer for twenty five minutes.
  7. Remove lid from dutch oven and continue baking bread at 450 degrees for 25-30 minutes, or until crust is shade of brown you desire. Carefully remove bread from dutch oven with towel or a clean pot holder and let cool for two hours.
