Why make bread in a Dutch oven?
Cooking bread in a Dutch oven helps to trap the steam. This keeps the crust soft and creates a light and fluffy loaf that is full of texture.
How long does it keep?
This homemade bread will keep well for around 4 days. Store it in an airtight container at room temperature for the best results. You can increase the shelf life by 2 or 3 days by storing it in the fridge.
Can you freeze it?
Yes! Once your bread has fully cooled, wrap it it plastic wrap or foil. It will keep well for up to 6 months. Defrost the bread at room temperature to serve.
When defrosting, it’s best to place the bread on a cooking rack so air can circulate all around.
- Don’t skip the rises. You need to allow time for your dough to rise so that it’s light and fluffy.
- Preheat your Dutch oven so that it’s hot when you place in the dough. This will help to create steam quickly and your bread will bake evenly.
This Dutch oven jalapeno bread is all kinds of amazing! It’s so soft and fluffy and the flavors are amazing. Be sure to enjoy it with lots of butter and a piping hot bowl of your favorite soup.
