Posted by request. Will get pictures up the next time I make it!
Easy-Peesy Overnight Bread


  • 3 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups water


  1. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together flour, salt and yeast.
  2. Add water and mix until a shaggy mixture forms. (don’t expect the dough to look even and smooth, it won’t!)
  3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and set aside for 12 – 18 hours.  Overnight works great.
  4. Heat oven to 450 degrees.
  5. When the oven has reached 450 degrees place a cast iron pot with a lid in the oven and heat the pot for 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, pour dough onto a heavily floured surface and shape into a ball.
  7. Cover with plastic wrap and let set while the pot is heating.
  8. Remove hot pot from the oven and drop in the dough.
  9. Cover and return to oven for 30 minutes.
  10. After 30 minutes remove the lid and bake an additional 15 minutes.
  11. Remove bread from oven and place on a cooling rack to cool.
  12. DEVOUR!
  13. You can add additional ingredients to spruce this up. Try different herbs and seasonings to your liking. I like cheddar and garlic powder, but you could try sweet additions, nuts, lemon, dried berries, or whatever you’d like.
