This post first appeared in December 2018, to share my enthusiasm for the easy “Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes” method of baking bread that yields such excellent and reliable crusty loaves. Since so many folks have taken to baking these days in our current stay-at-home COVID-19-avoiding world, I’ve decided to repost it today.
If you don’t have one of their cookbooks, you can try out their basic Master recipe on their website (click here), using just flour, water, kosher salt and yeast. Their website has a lot of info and many fun recipes, and the authors even respond to questions. Of course, the books are excellent resources with more in-depth instructions. I hope you’ll check any of this out, and let me know if you try baking Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes.
