tonight's dinner - three ingredient bread

three ingredient bread, what could be easier. i was talking to my friend mir today about the recipe and decided to continue my exploration of simple dinners by baking some tonight. this recipe is unusual in that you bake it for the first 30 minutes under a metal mixing bowl.

three ingredient bread - serves 4 comfortably

3 cups flour (i like to use 2c wheat and 1c bread flour)
1 1/2 cup milk
2 tsp baking powder

do not over-mix
knead lightly (5 times should do it)

form into a boule-shaped loaf and place on cookie sheet, cutting slight cross in top

place a metal mixing bowl over the loaf

bake at 450deg F for 30 minutes, covered by the bowl

take bowl off and bake another 30 minutes or so or until done. the loaf should make a nice hollow sound if you knock on the bottom of it

for dinner then: bread with good irish butter, brie i had left to warm for an hour on my table while the bread was baking, and a bowl of rainer cherries with rosewater (scroll down to find the "recipe" for this)
