Grandmas Homemade Bread Baked in Clay.


This is my go-to recipe for homemade bread. My family loves it and asks me to make it often. It is truly dummy proof recipe so if you have never made bread before, you can start with this recipe with no fear of failing.

I got this recipe from Croatian cooking facebook group which I follow, the recipe author's name is Rajka Sunajko and it has become legendary for how easy and simple it is to make, it tastes like old school grandmas bread baked in clay and it stays fresh for a couple of days.

This bread is crispy from outside and soft from inside. The most important parts of the preparation process are:

1. Leave the bread dough to rise for a minimum of 4 hrs, ideally overnight.
2. You should not forget to use the clay or glass casserole dish with a cover and warm the whole empty dish together with the oven before adding risen dough to it.

I hope that you enjoy making and eating this bread as much as I do!

 Ingredients

  • 3 cups of flour of your choice
  • 1.5 cups of warm water
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 pack of dry yeast (2 and 1/4 teaspoons)

 Instructions

  1. Spoon mix together well all of the ingredients. No need to hand knead the dough. The dough will be liquidy, that is how it should be. 
  2. Cover the bowl with the dough with the nylon wrap and place it in the fridge for a minimum of 4 hours or ideally overnight.
  3. Heat the oven to the maximum heat. For my oven that is 250 C / 482 F along with the empty covered clay dish.
  4. Carefully take out the empty, covered heated clay or casserole dish out of the oven and line it with baking paper.
  5. Spoon out the dough onto a baking paper, cover and place it in the oven, leave it to bake for 30 minutes on maximum heat.
  6. Take off the cover off the dish and reduce heat to 200C / 392 F, leave it in the oven baking on this lower temperature for another 10 minutes.
  7. Take the bread out of the oven and let it cool a bit before serving.
