    Couldn’t be happier with the results! Left it in the fridge for about 30 hours after the initial 2-3 hour rise. The inside was flavourful, moist and chewy encased in a beautiful, singing crust.

    Wonderful crusty bread.

    Yeast bread making can’t get much easier than this. The hardest part of this recipe (for me) is properly shaping the loaf so that it rises up and not out. My fist loaf tasted good but was pretty flat. I watched a few videos on how to properly shape a round loaf, and the next ones I baked were much better-looking.
    My family loved it, I’m making it again for Father’s Day Breakfast

    This turned out amazing! I just changed the cooking method to a Dutch oven. I preheated the dutch oven for 30 minutes at 450 and cooked it for 30 minutes with the lid on and then 15 more with the lid off. I used parchment paper to lift it in and out of the pot. It made two round loaves. As a family, we ate a loaf in one sitting!

    This is the easiest artisan bread...ever! And oh so delicious. The dough came together in a flash and I anxiously waited for the rise, but it was so worth it. A couple of days later I had an itch for fresh bread again and with dough in the fridge, it was on. I got home at 5:15p and by 6:45p I had a fresh baked loaf. Yum! Yum! Yum!

    Very good. I do not have a broiler and it still worked perfectly. Although, did have to tinfoil the top to avoid burning the crust.

    I love how easy it is to make this bread and how I can make a batch, throw it in the fridge and have fresh bread all week.
    Simple and great tasting Highly recommend by me
