Here comes Dutch Oven bread! I believe, there’s no better culinary skill to learn than baking your own bread! So, I’ve made a video for you on how to make an easy Dutch Oven bread with a delicious crispy crust.
Dutch Oven provides closed, a.k.a. more controlled environment for the bread baking. The moisture trapped inside the closed pot keeps the exterior of the bread moist and elastic (not as hot) for the 1st stage of baking and consequently allowing the loaf to grow bigger. Also, checking in with the scientific part of the process, the prolonged period of enzymatic activity, due to closed environment, allows sugars to “unlock” further and a brighter, sexier crust to develop.
Ingredients for the Dutch Oven Bread dough:
– 2 cups Water
– 1 tsp Sugar
– 8 g Traditional Active Dry Yeast
– 200 g Bread Flour
– 400 g Whole Wheat Flour
– ½ cup Sunflower Seeds
– 2 tsp Salt
