Well on my way to becoming a Foodie

I’ve just pulled out of the oven, my very first loaf of homemade (wheat free, gluten free, dairy free) artisan bread! Just typing that sounds so . . . fancy.

I purchased Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-free Homemade Wonderful Bread Mix:

And followed the mixing directions to make up the bread by hand, but then followed the directions in the link below to a post about how to bake it in my dutch oven to get that artisan bread look:

Basically, I pre-heated my oven to 500 degrees with the dutch oven inside while I mixed up the loaf and baked the loaf inside the dutch oven with the lid on (I removed the plastic knob of my Le Cruset as it is only recommended to go up to 450 degree temps) for 15 minutes. Then I removed the lid and baked it for another 20 minutes. And it came out looking like this:

So, watch out Grand Central Bakery, you’ve got some competition in the neighborhood!

    There is a reason I never answered this question. Turned out I was so excited about the bread coming out of the oven that while it was cooling, I ran to write this post. The taste test showed it was, alas, undercooked. Ah well, it was a thing of beauty ’til that point.
