Bread in a Pot

Recipes Overview

The bread in a pot. Instead of baking it in a bread machine or a baking pan, this bread is baked in a pot. Definitely worth a try. But be aware: The pot as well as the lid should be suitable for the oven, so they shouldn’t have plastic handles, etc.

Otherwise, this bread is super easy to bake. You should only pay attention to the rising time for the dough. So nothing for spontaneous baking sessions. Also, optionally, you can add, for example, grains, raisins, flaxseed or nuts. You can use all purpose flour, wheat flour, or another flour of your choice, such as rye or spelt flour. Baking bread can be so simple – and yet a freshly baked loaf from your own oven is so incredibly delicious. Especially when it is still warm. Enjoy!



Dissolve yeast in lukewarm water. Mix with the flour and salt and knead into a dough.
