Doable And Delectable Overnight Bread

I give all the credit to my mom (Diamond and Willow)Β for finding and introducing this recipe to me.

Bread making doesn’t get any easier and the outcome doesn’t get much better! In my opinion πŸ˜‰

It’s also super customizable… If you try it, I’d love to see or hear about it, either with a comment here or a tag on instagram @JemstoryΒ πŸ™‚

 

 

 

Ingredients :

2 cups all-purpose flour

2 cups whole wheat flour

2 tsp salt

1 tsp active dry yeast

2 1/4 cup warm water

1/3 cup sunflower seeds*

1/3 cup dried cranberries*

 

* The seeds and cranberries are up to you as far as personal preference goes. The original recipe calls for 1/3 cup flax seeds but I didn’t have any so I threw in the cranberries instead. You can change up the seeds and berries depending on your taste buds or pantry innards πŸ˜‰

 

Directions :

 

In a large bowl (preferably with a lid), mix the flour, salt and yeast and seeds together.

Pour the warm water into the bowl and using a spatula, mix until it is all incorporated.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and let it sit on the counter overnight or for around 12 hours.

(If you use a lid, just check it after a couple of hours to make sure it didn’t pop open from the yeast expanding πŸ˜‰

 

 

Pre-heat your oven to 450 f degrees.

Place your cast iron, dutch oven or clay pot and lid (I use my moms Pampered Chef Clay dish), into the oven so it heats up as well.

Once the pot has heated, remove it from the oven and take the lid off, as that is too tricky to do after this next bit πŸ˜‰

Flour your work surface and hands VERY well and with said flour covered hands, gently remove the dough from the bowl onto the counter and roughly shape it into a ball.

Take the ball of dough and drop it into the pot.

Cover with the lid and place it back into the oven.

Bake for 30 minutes with the lid on, after which remove the lid and bake for another 15-20 minutes until the top is nice and golden and crusty looking.

Remove from the oven and after a few moments remove from the pot and let it cool.

 

That is if you can control your desire to taste test a slice with a big slab of butter πŸ˜‰

Hello humans 😊 This is where you learn about me I suppose, though anyone reading this right now most likely knows all the boring details ;) I am Jessica Rose Peters-Hagenouw. (Always thought I'd be able to pronounce my married name but hey, life doesn't go as we plan.) June 11, 1995, tis the day Robert and Bonnie Peters received the most adorable, amazing, wonderful, surprise 3rd child they could have dreamed of. Speaking of being the third child, I have an older brother and an older sister. Both of whom are married and have wee little families of their own, making 'Aunty Jess' another name I go by. I grew up and have lived all of my years up till November 2015 in Saskatchewan, Canada. Making summers that are extremely short and winters that never end, vast open spaces, northern lights, unthinkable amounts of mosquitoes, lakes, forests and people waving to you on the grid road all different things that mean = Home. But Home is not where I'll be for some time. My husband is a Dutchman, living in Europe. Therefore I too have been living in Europe for the last few months. The reason I started this little blog/journal/writing thing, is to document a bit of my "whole new world," for those at home who wont be awake at 3:00 am wanting to hear about how I couldn't find flour at the grocery store. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek into my little life 😊
