This recipe today is not based off of any specific story, but an overall genre: fantasy! Fantasy is definitely my favorite genre in books, movies, and even video games. In pretty much every fantasy food scene, you’ll see some type of rustic bread. So, to help round out your fantasy feasts, I made some rustic bread! I adapted this crusty homemade bread recipe, and it turned out awesome.
As you can see from the photo, this bread works best when you tear off chunks rather than slicing it. Serve it with your favorite meats and cheeses, or just slather it with butter and jam. The possibilities are endless!
Rustic Bread Recipe - For Fantasy Feasts
- 1 envelope rapid rise yeast
- 1 3/4 cups warm water
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons salt
Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl.
Leave the dough in the bowl, and allow it to rise for 1 hour.
Punch the dough down and form it into a ball shape.
Place the dough ball onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking mat.
Cover the dough loosely with a towel, and allow it to rise for another hour.
Cut a slit in the top of the dough ball with a sharp knife.
Cover the dough loosely with aluminum foil, and bake at 425 degrees F for 25 minutes.
Remove the foil, and bake for 25 minutes more, or until the bread is a deep golden brown color.
