Recipe found online at Simply So Good. There are also many You-Tube videos featuring this popular recipe, while this video is a little drawn out I did appreciate the folding tip to get the nice split on the top of the bread, and this looks to be the video where the recipe originated from.
I followed the recipe and timing from Simply So Good, I do not have a cast iron pot unfortunately, but I used a stonewear/ceramic pot with a tight lid that worked just fine. I think the key is just to have a tight fitting lid as you are steaming the bread, and that's where the magic happens!
Here is my first loaf, I went a little heavy on the flour but it just dusted off:
The next day I added cheese to the dry ingredients, used corn meal on the outside instead of flour and made this beauty:
A family favourite and the recipe I will be famous for among friends I think! These loaves would make BEAUTIFUL gifts as well and truly only takes 15 minutes of your time (plus baking time). I'm going to try minced garlic in my next loaf, the flavour ideas are endless, what kind would you make??
