Game-changing bread recipe right here! Honestly I am not a baker, but even I can bake a perfectly crusty boule of homemade bread.  This Dutch oven bread recipe is great for entertaining- what’s more impressive than a delicious loaf of homemade bread?  No one has to know how easy it is!

We make this bread every weekend, no joke. Its great for  a brunch, with a chili bar for dinner parties, or even to bring over to a friend/neighbor as a lil homemade gift – much more thoughtful (and yummy) than flowers.

This Overnight Dutch Oven Bread Recipe Is:

  • Warm
  • Simple
  • Wholesome
  • Crunchy on the Outside
  • Soft in the middle
  • Vegan, Egg Free, and Dairy Free
  • Made with Pantry Staple Ingredients Only!

Easy Dutch Oven Bread Baking for the WIN

I’ve always been intimidated by baking, but this recipe makes the process into something not scary at all. Mix the dry ingredients, add water, let rise overnight, fold, let rise again, and bake. Follow those easy steps you have a perfect, professional-looking, very impressive loaf of perfectly baked bread. Not to mention, you also will have a kitchen full of the smells of freshly baked bread, which is the best way to wake up on a weekend.

I use a 6-quart Dutch Oven which is just the right size for this recipe. There are some majorly *pricey* Dutch Ovens out there, but honestly any enameled cast iron one will work – I got my brother this inexpensive one from Amazon and he loves it!

And if you want the perfect little swirl design on top, I use this Banneton proofing bowl for the second rise. It’s also super inexpensive and the bamboo allows the dough to pull air in for the perfect crumb. Can you make bread without a proofing bowl?  Absolutely!  But I make this bread so often it was worth the small investment for me to get a banneton bowl… and plus perfect swirl design makes me feel like a pro baker.

Make Dutch Oven Bread Vegan for a Healthy Version

This vegan Dutch Oven bread is naturally vegan. I’m all about making recipes plant-based when I can. Vegan cooking does NOT have to be bland, boring, or flavorless… It’s quite the opposite when done right. By building meals around vegan pantry staples and swapping in a few plant-based ingredients you can make healthier meals for you and your family. I made a list of my 125 favorite vegan pantry ingredients that we use on a weekly basis, and check out all my vegan recipes here that are on The Herbeevore. These easy and healthy recipes are fantastic meatless and dairy free meals for your table.

Equipment

  • 6 Quart Dutch Oven *see below for notes
  • Banneton Proofing Bowl *see below for notes

Ingredients
  

Instructions
 

  • In a large mixing bowl, add flour, salt, and yeast, mix to combine. Add water and stir together until the dough is soft and sticky. Cover with a tea towel, and let rise 12-18 hours (I usually do it overnight).
  • Once the dough has risen, place a bread board on the counter and sprinkle with enough flour to cover the surface. Remove the dough onto the board, and begin folding. Take the corners closest to you and fold over the corners farthest from you, and repeat with the far corners and bring them in. Fold 5 or 6 times, and place back in the mixing bowl. Sprinkle the top of the dough with flour, and cover with a tea towel and allow dough to rise again for an additional 1-2 hours.
  • When ready to bake, place a large cast-iron dutch oven pot into the oven. Heat the oven to 475 degrees Ferenheit with the pot inside. Once the oven reaches temperature, carefully remove the hot dutch oven pot, and place the dough into the pot. Cook covered for 30 minutes. Then remove the lid and cook uncovered for an additional 10-15 minutes.
  • When bread is finished, carefully tip the bread from the pot onto a cooling rack. Cool until you can no longer resist (at least 45 minutes)

    Hi Kelly, Loved your 4 ingredients bread. First time bread maker or baker
    One problem, the bread was stuck to the bottom of my Schlemmertopf, clay pot
    Should I have greased the bottom?
    Did I not cook it enough?
    Should I have soaked the bottom as well as the top?
    Hoping you may be able to help, and thank you
    Regards Lyn
