60 Minute Bread

60-Minute Bread
from The Minimalist Cooks Dinner by Mark Bittman

3 cups all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
2 teaspoons instant yeast
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cups warm water

1. Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups warm water all at once, stirring with a wooden spoon. Continue to mix, for a minute or two longer. Add additional water by the tablespoon if needed, until a ball forms.
2. Shape the dough into a flat round, adding only enough flour to handle the dough easily. Place the dough on a baking sheet. Let rise in a warm place, covered. Meanwhile preheat the oven to 425°F. If time permits, let dough rise for 1 hour.
3. Slash the top of the loaf if desired and bake until done 30-45 minutes. The crust will be golden brown and crisp.

    Hey! That looks good! I tried the same recipe but had to turn down the heat a bit. I am afraid it would have burnt at 425 degrees. Did you bake it at 425? Best!
