My very first homemade ARTISAN BREAD💫So delicious. SO EASY! Why did it take me 14 years to make bread in this country?🤷♀️I cook a lot, yet baking bread has been very intimidating to me. Up until today. If I can do this, YOU can too!❤️RECIPE:
3 Cups Flour (which type wheat will be another post, but choose organic and as pure and unaltered as possible. I prefer European flour for this reason), 1Tsp Dry Yeast, 2Tsp salt, 1.5 Cups warm water (room temp). Mix the ingredients in a bowl (I used a wooden spoon), the dough will be sticky. Let rest overnight with a towel to cover.
In the morning, shape into a round loaf. Let rest for one hour, while preheating oven to 450 degrees. Transfer bread to a PREHEATED cast iron pot. Bake with lid on for 30min + 15min with lid off.
WOW! This bread was so amazing. Crispy on outside, moist and delicious on the inside. Served with lots of olive oil + himalayan salt. Dip away and enjoy! 💞😋#artisanbread#homemadebread#organicbread#nokneadbread#makeyourownbread#castironbaking#itsalifestyle#balans#balanslifestyle
PATIENCE💫One of the most important reminders in life, and the reason why this sign made it the center of our house😃Anyone with me sharing this struggle of impatience?🙄 My to-go-to is BREATH. It works. Simple, yet powerful. It doesn’t mean we don’t feel, or struggle, but through the breath we allow ourselves to come back to center. Back to peace💫🙏 At least until the next impatient moment comes along😄#patienceisapractice#itsalifestyle#tryourbest#patience#breathing#breathcalms#balans#balanslifestyle
