I love bread. It’s one of my weaknesses. I especially love artisan bread & extra points if it’s hot & fresh right out of the oven. I obviously can’t hang out in the bakery at the store all day long waiting for the bread to bake. So I try to make a couple loaves at home at least a couple times a week. Recipes like this one are so easy that there’s really no excuse to for me to have to go without anymore. I just mix the dough before I go to bed & let it sit. After we are done with the chaos of breakfast the next morning I pop it in the oven to bake. The house smells amazing.

Sometimes I will get the dough ready before we have dinner. That gives me enough hours of letting it rise that I can bake it first thing when I get up at 4 the next morning. My main motivation for doing this is because I want to have it for breakfast. My favorite thing to have for breakfast is a slice of hot, fresh bread with this Cinnamon Spreadable Honey from Buzz + Bloom Honey. It’s heavenly!
I love Buzz + Bloom Honey because they are careful in their processing to make sure they are leaving the natural pollen in it. This ensures that it retains its nutritious benefits & allows them to verify the honey’s floral source & country of origin. That’s really cool. It also makes sure that the honey maintains the beneficial enzymes & antioxidants that help make honey a true superfood. Extra bonus- Buzz + Bloom Honey is dedicated to delivering globally-sourced (from their trusted beekeepers in the United States, Brazil, Vietnam, Ethiopia & around the world), craft-style honey that captures the natural & diverse goodness of the honeybee journey.
Incredibly Easy Crusty Artisan Bread
- 3-4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp salt
- ½ tsp dry active yeast
- 1-1/2 cups lukewarm water (115 degrees is perfect)
- In a medium size bowl, combine 3 cups of the flour along with the other ingredients & mix with a wooden spoon until fully combined
- Place plastic wrap over the top of the dough (touching the dough- not just covering the top of the bowl)
- Set aside in a warm, dark place to rest at least 8 hours (up to about 24 hours)
- Remove dough from bowl & place on a well-floured surface & work into a ball (if it's too wet or sticky you can work more flour in- but it should not be too firm)
- Allow to rest approx 30 minutes
- Place cast iron dutch oven with lid in oven & preheat oven to 450 degrees
- Carefully remove once preheated & spray bottom with cooking spray
- Place dough in pot, slash the top several times
- Cover & bake 30 minutes
- Remove lid & bake an additional 10-15 minutes or until golden & brown
- (you know it's done if it sounds hollow when tapped with your fingernail)
- Cool slightly before serving
