Simple Winter Comforts… Homemade Bread!!

Photo-38This recipe is so simple and unbelievably delish! From Nigella Lawson’s “How to be a Domestic Goddess”
3 1/2 cups white bread flour, plus more for kneading
1 pkg yeast or 1 T. rapid rise yeast
1 T. salt
1 1/3 warm tap water (approximately)
1 T. melted unsalted butter
Mix flour, salt, yeast and 3/4 c water, mix with wooden spoon. Add remaining water and butter, mix to a “shaggy mess” (her term, haha) and either turn out and knead by hand for 10 minutes or strap on the dough hook and knead until elastic and smooth. Allow to rise in a buttered bowl in a warm spot for 1-2 hours. Punch down, form into a round loaf on a pizza stone and allow to rise for another 30 – 45 minutes. Bake at 425 degrees for 35 minutes. Slice and eat immediately.
