I tried out my new Lodge Double Dutch Oven and just LOVE it! My first dish in the pot was to bake a nice round of sourdough. I set my dough to rise on parchment in a round cake pan to give it shape and make it easy to transfer. In the meantime, I pre-heated the oven with a scant quarter cup of water in it. Once ready, I simply transferred the bread into the pot, covered it and set it to bake. It took a little longer to bake than when I make baguettes, but it came out wonderfully, and the pot really helped to make perfect crust.
Here’s a look of the crumb of the bread plated with dinner. Dinner was a chipotle burger with cilantro lime aoli and a simple salad.
