This recipe uses active dry yeast to leaven the bread which usually comes in a reusable glass container as opposed to instant yeast packets. It’s an easy switch to make and just adds a small, simple step to activate the yeast. We’re reducing waste wherever we can! So worth it for this tasty, low impact homemade bread. You can add in aromatics like rosemary for more of a savory loaf (check out the video below) or keep it plain for those necessary PB&J’s. (Who doesn’t love a PB&J with homemade bread? Try to tell me otherwise.)
You can prepare the dough before bed and leave to rise overnight, popping it in the oven just 30 minutes before you serve it–could not be easier! The most important step to remember is preheating your oven with your cast iron inside, so when you add in the dough it will immediately start baking. Bread trade secrets, y’all. You too can whip up a zero-waste bread with your cast iron like a pro!
