3 cups Lighthouse brand or any bread flour, more for dusting
1 level teaspoon dried yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
1 and ½ cups water (luke warm)
  • Mix all ingredients together. It will be a shaggy wet mess of dough
  • Leave in a warm spot for 12 hours (I cover with glad wrap and then put a tea towel over the top)
  • Heat oven to about 300 degrees C with the cast iron pot in there too so it heats up (it has to be really hot when you put the bread in)
  • Scoop out the dough onto a floured surface and fold a few times into a nice round shape
  • Leave for 1 hour to stand after you’ve folded it into a nice ball
  • Put into hot cast iron pot with the folded edges facing up (these will form a nice cracked top)
  • Cook for 30mins with lid on
  • Take lid off for a while to brown the top further (this could take another 5-30mins) depending on how brown you want it. It will be done when you tap it and it sounds hollow.
