Cut a slice, put some margarine on it, punch it up with a fresh cuppa joe . . . breakfast fit for a king.
As promised, it is very crusty . . . but good.
Recipe: The night before, in a large bowl whisk together 3 cups of flour, 1-3/4 teaspoons of salt, 1/2 teaspoon Instant or Rapid-rise yeast. Add 1-1/2 cups of water and mix until a shaggy mixture forms. Cover it with plastic wrap and set aside for 12-18 hours.
In the morning heat oven to 450 degrees. When heated place a covered Dutch oven in for 30 minutes. While heating, pour your dough onto a heavily-floured surface, shape into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and let it set.
After 30 minute heating, drop the dough into the pot, cover it and bake it for 30 minutes. Then remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes uncovered.
Remove from oven and place on a cooling rack.
You're done! Easy-peasy. And yummers!
By the way, it's 11:30 a.m. right now and 109 degrees and rising!
