I made breakfast this morning. Nothing too complicated: homemade bread, straight from the oven, butter, some sliced mozzarella and coffee.
You have probably seen this no-knead artisanal bread recipe floating around on Pinterest. The one you bake in your cast iron pot with a lid.
The recipe is here. She has great pictures and lots of instructions along the way.
For some reason, her recipe comes out a little too watery when I do it. She calls for three cups of flour, but this morning I used 3 cups, plus three heaping tablespoons of flour and that seemed to do the trick. Different flours can all absorb different amounts of liquid, even if the packages both say “unbleached white flour” on the front. Go figure.
There is something so European about having fresh bread with butter, cheese and coffee for breakfast. And the fact that it comes out of my oven makes me feel like a total rock star.
Anyway, just wanted to
brag share with you! Give it a try. It’s super easy and so rewarding.
Have a great yeasty day!
It would be great for Pinterest to have a way to say “I’ve tried making this and it worked (or didn’t) because…” and maybe even post a photo. Some recipes are great in a hypothetical world, but when I see that someone I know has tried/liked it, I’m much more likely to snatch that recipe out of hypothetical-land and make it in real life. Looks marvelous. Bon appetit!
Yes! That would be a great feature! I guess you will just have to check my blog to see what I’m making 😉
