Peasant Bread


  • 4 cups flour

  • 1/2 tablespoon active dry yeast

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • 2 cups water


In a large glass bowl, mix all ingredients together with a wooden spoon. The dough will be very sticky.

Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise for 2 hours in a warm area.

Split dough in half and shape into two round loaves, or boules. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Dust the loaves with flour and using a sharp knife, make three slits across the top of each loaf.

Let rise for one hour.

Place a small oven-safe dish filled with water on the bottom rack of the oven and preheat oven to 450. The steam will help create a crusty outer texture on the bread.

Bake bread for 20-30 minutes or until golden brown.

Remove from oven and cool loaves on a wire rack.

Makes 2 large or 4 small loaves.
