An easy bread recipe for any meal
3 cups of warm water
1 1/2 tbsp instant yeast (2 packets)
1 1/2 tbsp kosher salt
6 1/2 cups flour
Add the yeast and salt to the warm water and let it sit for about 5 minutes.
Add flour and let it rise for 2 hours or more, covered, but not airtight.
Here is mine after it had risen.
At this point, you can refrigerate for 3 hours, overnight, or not at all. If you cool it, it will be easier to make a loaf. I made mine the night before I needed it, and it was ready for me when I wanted to bake it for dinner.
Let it rise for at least 25-30 minutes or more.
I like this bread because its easy and takes no effort. You can add whatever you like to make the bread your own, and who doesn't like homemade bread. Always impressive when you are hosting a dinner!
