Anyone else go through that occasional phase where toast and butter is just the tastiest fucking creation on the planet and you have to restrain yourself from eating an entire loaf of bread in ten minutes
Rosemary, pepper, lavender skillet bread.
2 cups lukewarm water
2 ¼ tsp yeast
4 1/3 cups flour
1 tbsp herb mix
Herb mix: grind black pepper corns, lavender rosemary and salt in a mortar using equal parts (maybe a smudge less lavender than everything else)
In a bowl, add water and yeast, stir to dissolve and let set for 5 minutes.
Add in 1 cup flour and herb mix, stirring with a wooden spoon.
Continue adding in flour until fully mixed.
Cover and Let proof in a warm spot for an hour.
Coat your cast iron skillet with olive oil and sprinkle flour on the dough and your hands to help minimize stickiness.
Fold “ugly parts” under and place in oiled pan.
Cover and let sit another 30 minutes
Preheat oven to 400 F
Pour more olive oil on top to make sure the entire top is coated.
Sprinkle salt and extra herbs on top, cut an X and bake for approximately 30 minutes depending on size of pan.
Top will be a nice brown, transfer to a cooling rack, or serve in the skillet after letting it cool down.
Pepper for invigorating energies, rosemary for peace, salt for cleansing, lavender for calming, and yeast for growth.
