Super easy bread

More baking! This time I would like to share a "super easy" bread recipe with you. The bread stays nice and fresh for much longer than normal bread and the taste is simply delicious.

Recipe makes 2 loaves
4 1/2 cups of flour either store bought bread mix or your own combination. 
You can add Chia seeds, sunflower seeds, pepita, nuts, oatbran etc
I use wholemeal spelt flour and sometimes 1/3 of the quantity white flour
2 1/2 tea spoon salt, careful with salt when using bread mix, check packet re added salt
1/2 teaspoon dry yeast
600ml water

Put all dry ingredients in bowl, pour in water and use spatula to mix. It is to sticky to use your hands and knead.
Cover with bowl gladwrap and leave for 12-18 hours
Then turn mixture out onto some flour and turn and fold over several times, sprinkle with flour if to wet. Leave ca 15min
Prepare 2 teatowels with sprinkled flour
Take mix and split into 2 sections, again just gently fold over twice, place onto tea towels and leave for 2 hours. Dust with flour all over (sticks less to tea towel)
1/2 hour prior to baking place 2 ovenproof dishes in oven (must have lids, pyrex dish etc)
at 220 degrees
Place dough into dishes and cover with lids, bake for 40mins
Take of lid, reduce heat to 200degrees and bake further 20 mins to make a crust

Bon appetit!
