Super-Fast Dutch Oven Bread

OMG look what I just made, in only 1 hour and 10 minutes. No rising!!

Super-Fast Dutch Oven Bread
This gorgeous bread is a doddle to make. The rising happens inside the Dutch oven, which also locks in the moisture to create a super crusty loaf!

    Hi Madame Thermomix, just got back from vacation and had no bread in the house, so I tried this recipe. I was surprised by how easy it was and how good it tasted, although if I have more time I prefer the taste of bread that has had a chance to rise. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Will keep it in mind when I need bread in a pinch! It really did take just one hour! 🙂
