👩🍳Cook Time: 50 mins
3 ½ cups all-purpose flour and ¼ cup more to add at the bottom of the Dutch oven.
¼ tsp active yeast
1 ¾ cup lukewarm water
1 ¼ tsp salt
1The Dough: In a large bowl, combine the flour, yeast and salt. Add 1 ¾ cups of water and stir until well blended; the dough will be sticky. Cover the bowl and let the dough rest for at least 8 hours at room temperature.
2Rising The dough: It's ready when its surface is strewn with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over once or twice. Put the dough in a bowl cover and let stand for 1 hour
3Oven:Preheat the oven to 450 F˚
4Preparing the bread: Make a ball with the dough and flour well with the flour of your choice (all purpose, corn flour, whole wheat. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the bottom of the cast iron.
5Cooking the bread: Put the dough in a cast iron casserole dish, cover with the lid and bake for 25 minutes, then remove the lid and bake for another 15 to 30 minutes, until the bread is golden brown. Let cool on rack.

Earth of Maria
I’ve never been good at introductions because when they’re needed, I seem to forget every single interesting thing about myself. But I guess we’ll start with the basics. My name is Maria, and I am a twenty year old student from England. I study history at the University of Oxford and live in Brighton, but I was born in Russia and moved to the UK around ten years ago. I’m a vegan foodie (as you can probably tell by this blog), a lover of long walks and somewhere awkwardly between extrovert and introvert. Veganism and healthy eating are a huge part of my life, given that both have helped me overcome an unhealthy relationship with food. Finding balance took a lot of time and patience. But, as with many things in life, hard work proved 110% worth it! Whenever I’m not in the kitchen or working in my room, you’ll often find me at the gym, or at the grocery store looking for inspo for my next recipe.
