Sullivan Street Bread

My mom sent me the recipe for this, and it's probably the easiest bread you could possibly make. All told, it took about 5 minutes of my time and, although I haven't tasted it yet, it looks delicious.

You mix flour, salt, water, and yeast together for a couple of minutes and then let it rise overnight. Then you knead it a couple of times, let it rise for a few more hours, and throw it in the oven in a heated pot (with  a lid.)

Here it is during it's second rising period:

And fresh out of the oven:

Couldn't be easier, and my house smells all yeasty and nice.

  1. Okay I am so making this. But did you do your oven at 450 or 500? I don't understand recipes that say 450-500. Which do I use?

  2. I did 475, but I took it out about 5-10 minutes early during the last round in the oven -- just keep an eye on it to make sure it's not burning.


Thanks for dropping by! Love, Katrina.
