Random 5 Friday . . .


THIS IS REALLY VERY RANDOM
 
1.  I am not much in the baking department.
 
 
2.  Baking bread in a cast iron pot . . . you say.
 
 
3.  Sometimes I am surprised.
 
 
4. Thick and crusty . . .
 
 
5. BINGO!
 
MORE RANDOM
 
1.  Thursday mornings my friend Jackie and I get together to discuss . . .
 "whatz it all about , anyway"'
life, living, loving
"spirituality"
laughter, zip lines, nieces, grandchildren, growing older, work
whatever 
 
2.  I bought this Lodge Cast Iron Pot
a few weeks ago
I had been wanting a good cast iron kettle like pot
a friend told me about baking bread in a lodge pot
flour, yeast, salt, water
stir, set aside for 12-18 hours
bake
 
3.  I won't bore you with the recipe but if you're interested
"comment me"
 and it is yours
 
4.  Jackie and I thought it was the best fresh homemade
bread we have had in a long, long time.
 
5.  TTFN
 
  I am linking up with Nancy with this bit of randomness.

Never heard of baking bread this way but the pot is lovely and that bread looks delicious! :)

Musings from Kim K. said...

I always learn something new from your blog. Didn't know it was possible to bake bread in a pot. I bet cowboys did that (hee hee). Looks absolutely delicious.

Nancy said...

Sometimes you just have to do it and then be amazed at the results. :)

Jim said...

That looks soooo good, Lynne. Spread some butter while it's still warm and maybe a little strawberry preserves on part of it and that would be my breakfast!!!

Mrs. Jim makes skillet corn bread but I've not known of stovetop baked bread. She might know.

Baking bread always seemed to be a major undertaking so I never tried it. I love a fresh crusty bread and yours looks wonderful.

Mom always made her chili in her cast iron pot. The bread looks delish.

That bread looks so yummy. I don't bake bread as I like it too much. I do have a cast iron frying pan that I've never used. It's ancient. Like me. lol Enjoy your weekend Lynne!

TexWisGirl said...

oooh, i bet that is good! i love cast iron for the flavor it adds to pork chops and the like. :)

Lynn said...

I love cast iron pot bread, yours looks perfect and delicious. We cook everything in cast iron, oh my hubby just said, almost ;-).

Karen said...

Oh yes, this bread is just yummy! I make it a lot in the winter.

missy said...

I got two old "one egg sized" cast iron frying pans a few years ago near Bevs and you really need to be careful with old cast iron..It rusts..I don't like that...Your bread looks fantastic..

That bread looks me also yummy!

Found your blog via Nancy's "Random 5" .... :-D
That bread looks delicious! And it wouldn't be boring us if you had posted the recipe!
Have a great weekend.

Veronica Roth said...

Hey, post the recipe please, sounds yummy and I'd love to try something new. :) Lucky girl for the cast iron tools. They really are the best. I have one at the cabin where I oil it and treasure it and love it to pieces. :)

Cindy said...

Hi Lynne, I don't have a cast iron pot like that but I think I would like this. Lately I have been making cornmeal biscuits in my cast iron and they are called Hoe cakes, at our B&B the guests from the US really like them, I do too. Have a good weekend

Barb said...

I have a recipe (got it on Pinterest) for that bread but have never tried it (lacking a great cast iron pot). Yours looks perfectly yummy.

LANA said...

That bread looks divine and with that beautiful hunk of butter sitting there I think I want to reach right through my computer screen for a piece! I guess that's one way they did it way back when over the campfire! I had a Lodge fry pan years ago but got rid of it because it was just too heavy to lift, but at least that pot has a good handle on it!

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I sometimes wonder where my love of cooking/baking went? Too many years of cooking for nine maybe?
Wonderful pot.
Isn't it nice to have a friend you can cuss and discuss with? :)
Hugs,

Hi Lynne, I would rather have a slice of that bread than any sweet...so crusty and good. I make it in my big enameled cast iron pot, and was amazed with the crust, like an artisan bread from your own oven! Add a pot of homemade soup and I'll be over! Happy Sunday! Love, Penny

eileeninmd said...

Your bread looks yummy, I have to say I have never made homemade bread. Maybe I should start but, I do not think I have a iron pot like yours? Too bad you can not share a slice of the bread with the recipe. Have a happy day and week ahead!

From the Kitchen said...

My Lodge cast iron pot is a little over 75 years old. It was given to me by a sweet baby sitter.
She had used it for 50+ years before it became a part of my kitchen. The bread looks delicious.

Best,
Bonnie

Bonnie said...

The bread looks delish! I hope you had plenty of butter and jam. Oh and a pot of tea, of course. Happy Sunday! Bonnie

Nancy said...

I have a cast iron skillet with lid and would love to have this recipe. Looks great.

Rural Revival said...

I was just reading a recipe last night for bread done in a dutch oven. I was already to try it but the 12-18 hour timing wasn't going to work on a weeknight. Now I'm even more tempted because yours looks very very tempting!
