This easy to make recipe results in a crisp crust that’s surrounded by a moist soft center. It’s perfect with a hearty bowl of winter stew or lightly toasted served alongside breakfast.

I’m a huge fan of fresh sourdough boules, Italian round loaves and artisan bread creations. It’s hard for me to walk by a bakery when I can smell fresh bread baking.

And who doesn’t love a freshly cut slice of artisan bread. I could eat the whole thing!

But at $3-4 a loaf, there has to be an easier way to enjoy this all the time. A quick Google search turned up plenty of ideas. I decided to put my cast-iron Dutch oven to work.

I wanted a recipe that wouldn’t take all day or all night. A few hours is all I have. I also wanted something that was easy to make with limited ingredients that did not require rolling the dough and waiting for it to rise. And I wanted something that tasted like what I get when I buy bakery fresh bread. Bingo!
