Today I want to share a super simple bread recipe from It’s Always Autumn. There are only four ingredients and no kneading is required. All you need is flour, yeast, salt, and water! It’s crisp and chewy on the outside, but soft and delightful on the inside. Enjoy a slice or two alongside your favorite winter soup or by itself with butter and raw honey.
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp yeast
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
In a large bowl, combine all of the ingredients and stir until the dough comes together into a cohesive ball. It will still be sticky, but that’s okay.
Cover the bowl and set aside for 8-24 hours at room temperature. When you’re ready to bake it, turn the dough onto a well floured surface, form it into a ball, and let rest for 30 minutes.
While the dough is resting, preheat the oven to 450° and place a baking dish with sides in the oven.
Remove the dish and grease with olive oil before placing the dough inside. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove the cover and continue baking for 10-15 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Enjoy!
