Artisan Bread

I tested out a new bread recipe this weekend. I don’t get a whole lot of free time with little Mr. Rémi needing me so much, so I wanted to find something very easy and quick. I had found this recipe on Pinterest a while ago and decided I should give it a try.

Ingredients:
3 cups lukewarm water
1-1/2 tablespoons granulated fast acting (instant) yeast (2 packets)
1-1/2 tablespoons kosher or other coarse salt
6-1/2 cups unsifted, unbleached all purpose white flour

For the directions please visit THIS link to The Italian Dish blog. It really is super easy and takes very little actual time on your part.

The finished bread.

I managed to get 3 loaves of bread, not 4, but it tastes delicious and worked well. Also, I used a baking sheet and parchment paper because I don’t have a pizza stone and everything baked up fine. Artisan bread is a lot more crunchy on the outer layer, similar to French bread. So if you don’t like that kind of crust then this probably isn’t the recipe for you.
