The recipe that I used comes from "ArtisanBreadwithStev on Youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QRJfNB7T-zg
It is a large batch recipe and makes 5 regular loaves of bread.
I used a commercial bread pan that my husband gave me - so I made three very large loaves : )
Recipe: 7 1/2 cups cool tap water
1 Tbs salt
1 rounded tsp of rapid rise yeast
1 - 5 lb bag of flour
In a large tub or bowl mix water, salt and yeast. Add the flour and stir with a wood spoon handle - then using a spatula. This dough will be sticky.
Put something over the top - either a lid to the tub or plastic cling wrap.
The dough will double in size. Let the dough sit on the counter at least 8 - 24 hours.
I let mine sit for 24 hours and it had such a marvelous flavor : )
Spray the 5 bread pans with cooking spray.
Stir the dough to reduce the size before working.
Flour the board and put dough on the flour.
The dough will be moist and sticky. Divide the dough into 5 'pie slice' portions.
Separate and put into pans - using a dough scraper or large spatula makes it a bit easier to get them into the pans.
Cover with a flour sack towel and proof for 1 1/2 hours.
After 1 1/4 hours into proofing - move the oven rack to the center and turn on at 400F to preheat.
After proofing, put all pans on the center rack and bake for 45 minutes.
This bread slices easily after it has cooled.
This bread has a great texture and taste. Enjoy.
