Do It Yourself – Artisan Bread

As I had mentioned before I began this journey by the undoubtable need to save money and become more frugal. So here we are with bread! Lots of people will rave on that there is nothing like a loaf of freshly baked bread, and they are not wrong!

Bread making can be VERY intimidating so I knew I need to start simple and I have found it! Artisan bread is easy peasy! I found this GREAT recipe from The Italian Dish Blog. (Which BTW is my FAVORITE Italian Recipe Got To Place.)

I’m not going to post the entire instructions here so I recommend you visiting the page directly. She has it very clean cut, nicely place pictures, and a video showing you how to fold the bread. I can’t make it any more simple than what she has already. 

Artisan Bread / Peasant Bread / Italian Bread… etc etc etc. 

What do you need?
  • 3 cups lukewarm water
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons granulated fast acting (instant) yeast (2 packets)
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons kosher or other coarse salt
  • 6-1/2 cups unsifted, unbleached all purpose white flour

THAT IS IT! That’s all you need. (See posted link above for directions)

You get a nice crispy outside and warm moisture inside.

If you have NEVER baked a loaf of bread a day in your life, this is where I suggest you start! Make a big pot of spaghetti, salad, and some artisan bread and your family will be begging you for more!
