Homemade Bread


  1. 3 cups white bread flour
  2. 1⅓ lukewarm water
  3. 1 packet yeast
  4. 2 teaspoon of salt
  5. 3 tablespoons of sugar
  6. 3 tablespoons  of olive oil


  1. Add flour into a mixing bowl.
  2. Add yeast and salt on the opposite sides of the bowl and mix with flour.
  3. In a separate mixing bowl, add water, sugar and olive oil and mix until the sugar dissolves.
  4. Pour the water mixture into the flour mixture and mix until you form a ball of dough. You may not need to use all the water, so reserve a little bit or you may need extra water if your dough is too dry.
  5. Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl, cover with cling wrap and a kitchen towel and place in a warm place and let it rise overnight up to 12-18 hours.
  6. Gently reshape into a ball, flour the dough and place into a floured bowl, cover with cling wrap and a kitchen towel and proof for another hour.
  7. Preheat the dutch oven in the oven at 220°C for 30 minutes.
  8. Gently place the dough into a floured dutch oven, score the dough, reduce the oven to 200°C
    and bake for 30 minutes with the lid on, then remove the lid and bake further for 30-60 minutes.
  9. Remove from the oven and cool completely on a wire rack.
  10. Enjoy.
