How to bake Artisan Bread

Ingredients that you need: 3 cups of lukewarm water, 1 1/2 tsp of active dry yeast, 1 1/2 of salt, 6 1/2 of dry all purpose flour. If the you put too much yeast it will taste bitter with a fermented yeast smell.  First thing we need is a medium or a large mixing bowl then mix all the dry ingredients until they are all introduced make sure that the first dry ingredients are not wet,

then get a wooden spoon, slowly pour the water into the first ingredients while you’re mixing using the wooden spoon but if you think that your bread dough is not mixed enough it’s okay to use an electric bread mixer after mixing the dough.

Wait 3 hours to make the dough rise if you use small bowl it will end up making a mess then cover the bowl with food film and poke small holes to make the air circulate we want to cover the bowl with a food film to prevent dust from going in or contamination. After rising the bread heat up the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.

Make sure to not open and close the oven every time because it will lose its heat.

While the oven is heating up you need to pull the sides of the dough then fold it in to the bread after 6-7 fold make sure to sprinkle a little flour on the top of the bread then cut a cross using a sharp knife.

You can use any pan but it has to be oven safe. What we’ve used is a cookie pan with parchment paper but I’d prefer to use stone pan or pizza stone. Put the bread in the oven and wait for half an hour or one hour until the bread looks golden brown.
