Homemade Skillet Bread Recipe
1 Glass mixing bowl
1 Mixing spoon
1 Skillet (greased)
13 oz Water
1 1/2 tsp Salt
1 1/4 tsp Yeast
3 ½ c Flour
Warm the bowl in the microwave for 1 min.
Add 13 oz water.
Stir until combined with the handle end of a wooden spoon.
Cover with a warm damp dish towel and let rise for 1 1/2 hrs (maybe 2 hrs) in the oven with the oven light on and oven door closed (this makes it warm and encourages the dough to rise). Take out and give the dough a light stir to de-gas and stretch the dough. Pre-heat oven to 400F. Pour dough into the greased skillet. Cover and let rise for 30 min – 1 hr. Sprinkle a little flour on top or sesame seeds or brush with melted butter – your choice.
Bake for 40 min. until golden brown.
