Since I retired in 2010, I have been in search of the perfect Crusty Bread recipe. You know, the kind you find in great Italian restaurants that have a gorgeous crackly crust and a chewy inside, perfect for dipping in olive oil? I cannot take credit for this recipe. I actually don’t remember where I found it, except it was an adaptation from a site called Simply So Good.
The only thing I did differently was use bread flour instead of AP flour. If someone here posted this recipe, please accept my congratulations…(a fine loaf indeed) and my apologies for posting again.
- 3 c bread flour
- 1 tsp active dry yeast
- 1 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 c water, warm
