This bread only took me about an hour to make... and a lot of that was just waiting for the bread to rise and then bake, so I had plenty of time to make the soup we were having for dinner.

Just mix 1 1/2 cups of water with a packet of fast acting yeast, 1/4 cup of honey, 2 cups of flour, a dash of salt, oregano, basil and pepper.  (You could really add anything to the bread at this point as far as flavoring you would like.  I just chose to go with herbs because this bread was going with soup for dinner.)

Slowly ad more flour until a soft dough is formed.  Turn this out onto a floured board and continue adding flour and knead the dough until the it is no longer so sticky.  This takes several minutes.

Form this into a loaf and lightly dust the bottom with flour.  Place this onto a baking sheet, cover with  dish towel and let rise for half an hour.  While the bread is rising place a baking tin with ice in it into the preheated oven (400 degrees).

Once the bread has doubled in size, cut some slits in the top and bake for 20 minutes.  (I forgot to cut slits into the top of mine, so the back of it separated, and it would be much prettier if it had happened on top instead.)

Then just slice it up and enjoy!

Mmm, that looks great and sounds so easy. Is the ice in the pan to form steam in the oven ahead of the bread going in?

Yup, it makes the oven humid so the bread doesn't get dry.

This is so similar to bread I bake regularly but I punch it down and put it into bread pans for a second rise.
I'm going to try your recipe along with the ice and see how it differs. Fun!

Looks great! I've never heard of creating humidity in the oven...

Haven't you? We have friends who are very serious about baking sourdough, oven humidity is essential. I bug them about the alchemy of it, it is SO interesting. I can't get enough.
