Home-made bread


My friend Efrat sent me this recipe and I must admit it took some time to actually make it because I thought it was difficult. How wrong was I. I encourage you all to make this simple bread. Your family and friends will think you bought it at the local bakery they will not believe that it is homemade.  You can use a variety of flour. I like to use one part 9 grain to two parts white. You will need a cast iron pot with a cover for best results.

  Homemade bread


3 cups of flour (white, whole wheat 9grain etc..)

1 ¼ teaspoon of salt

1 ¼ teaspoon of dry yeast

1 ½ cups of water



Place four, salt and yeast in a bowl and give a quick mix. Pour in water and gently mix that it forms a dough but do not knead the dough. Cover and let it sit for about 12 hours.

When you are ready to bake the dough, preheat the oven on about 250°. Place the pot with its cover in the oven.

Take the dough out on a floured surface. And fold each side to the middle making a box shape.

Remove the pot from the oven (if you would like you can place different grains in the bottom of your pot. For example sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, flax seeds, etc…) place the dough in the pot with the folded sides facing the bottom. Cover the pot and let it bake for about 30-40 minutes.

Then remove the cover and let it bake for another 30-40 minutes. When the bread is finished remove and place on a cooling rack.

Enjoy while it lasts because I think it will be finished in a matter of minutes.
