Does homemade bread seem like too big a ‘project’ sometimes?  Here’s a fun one to do with the kids on a lazy day at home – as long as you help handle the very hot oven. You don’t need a bread machine, mixer, or lots of kneading time. The only piece of special equipment necessary is a oven-safe pot with a cover. A dutch oven or covered Pyrex container will do.


Here’s the recipe

  1. Mix together:
    • 3 c flour
    • ¼ t yeast
    • 1 ¼ t. salt
  2. Add – 1 ½ c water and mix.
  3. Let it sit covered for 12 hours or so
  4. Dump out onto some flour and fold into a round shape
  5. Sprinkle bran or flour on cloth and lay dough, seam side down, on cloth.
  6. Let it rise for 2 hours or so
  7. Place pot in oven and preheat both to 450 – 500
  8. Flip dough into hot pots and cover
  9. Bake for 30 mins covered
  10. 15 – 20 mins uncovered
  11. Let it cool and enjoy!  Yummy!

I love cooking and baking with the kids.  They feel like they are participating in an ‘adult’ activity, and I’m prepping them to take over!  (Yes, my evil genius plan involves my kids doing all the cooking when they’re older . . . and loving it!)
