Poor Man’s Bread
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1 tsp. instant yeast
- 4-5 cups flour
- 2 tsp. salt
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the water, yeast, salt, and flour (start with 4 cups). Mix with the hook attachment. If you can tell that the dough is still really sticky, add more flour. You want the dough to be smooth and elastic and not stick to your fingers. Don’t add too much flour or you will get a really dense bread.
- Knead the dough with the dough hook for about 10 minutes until the dough has become smooth and elastic. Coat a large bowl with olive oil and put the dough in the bowl, making sure the oil gets all over it.
- Cover the bowl with a light towel and let it rise for about 2-4 hours until it doubles in volume.
