Basic Bread 2.0

What do you call basic bread like this? Tasty, delicious, and well-made bread. It's so good, and yet so basic.

Boom. Done! Yummy yum.


  • 1 Tbsp. sugar
  • 2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
  • 5 1/2 to 6 cups bread flour
  • 1 Tbsp. salt
  • Corn meal, as necessary
  • 2 - 3 cups of boiling water

  1. Mix the sugar, water, and yeast together. Leave for about 5 minutes. 
  2. Stir in the flour and salt. Continue until the sides pull away. 
  3. Knead on a work surface/counter sprinkled with flour until a smooth ball forms.
  4. Let rise for about 1 to 2 hours, or until doubled in size. Punch down and knead again.
  5. Preheat oven to 450.
  6. Put cornmeal on a baking sheet, shape into two loaves, and place the two loaves of dough onto it.
  7. Place the boiling water in a pan after 15 minutes. Bake for about 20 minutes, and then turn off the heat.
  8. Take out after 5 minutes. Enjoy!
