Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Preheating your Dutch oven is the key to making this bakery-worthy artisan bread at home.

To get the most consistent baking results, weigh the flour instead of measuring it in cups.

Youll also save a little bit of time and cleanup. Instead of letting the dough rise on the counter, you can save time by proofing in the Quick Cooker on the PROOF setting; in only takes 3060 minutes for the dough to double in size.
