Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a large bowl whisk together the flour, yeast, salt, sugar, raisins, and cinnamon.
  2. Pour in the milk and water, and stir it in with a wooden spoon until your dough forms a ball.
  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and leave on the counter for over about 12-15 hours (no less than 12 hours, it needs this time to grow)
  4. After this time you will see your dough is sticky, boozy and has at least doubled in size.
  5. Scrape your dough out of the bowl and onto a floured surface and fold it two times on itself, kind of like a book
  6. Roll your dough into a round ball or ‘boule’ getting it nice and smooth on the bottom
  7. Preheat oven to 400oF and place dutch oven.
  8. Let rise for 1 hours at room temperature covered with a floured tea towel. It might take longer than an hour. It will rise and grow, and also spread out a little too
  9. Place dough in dutch oven
  10. Score the top of the bread with a sharp knife.
  11. Cover & bake for 40 minutes. To get a crispy, thick crust KEEP THE OVEN DOOR CLOSED DURING BAKING, please.
  12. Uncover and bake for 10 more minutes.
  13. Place on rake and cool.
