Below is a fun and simple recipe for making bread in the 3.5 LeCreuset French Dutch Oven created by Jacques Pepin from his book More Fast Food My Way.
However, the recipes are endless for what you can create in your new LeCreuset French Dutch Oven should you win!
Slow & Easy Bread In A Pot
make a 1 pound loaf of bread
This is perfect to start in the evening and then pop in the refrigerator overnight so it’s ready in the morning to bake.
2 1/4 cups tepid water (about 90 degrees)
1 tsp of yeast Rapid Rise)
1 tsp of salt (or a bit more)
4 cups of all-purpose flour (about 1 pound 5 ounces)
In the 3.5 LeCreuset French Dutch Oven mix the above ingredients.
Stir them up until the dough is thoroughly blended and gooey. Cover the pot with blended ingredients and let set at room temperature for about 1 1/2 hours.
The dough will be puffed up a lit bit. Knock it down by mixing it up again with a wooden spoon for a moment, you don’t have to do too much. Then cover it and put it in the refrigerator overnight (10-12 hours).
The next day, preheat your over to 450F degrees. Once preheated, take the dough out of the refrigerator, and take the cover off (it should have risen again overnight). Place the pot directly into the oven and bake for approximately 40 minutes.
After forty minutes, remove the pot from the oven. You will see that you have a perfect crust poking out from the pot. Let it sit and cool for a few minutes.
Flip pot over and remove the bread. Now how easy is that?
AND THE WINNER IS:
Congratulations Sandra Dee! I hope you enjoy your new LeCreuset 3.5 French Dutch Oven
