Butter Crisp Peasant Bread


  • 2.5 tsp yeast
  • 4 tsp coconut sugar or preferred sweetener
  • 2 c. warm water
  • 4 c flour
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 3 Tbs butter for the pan


  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the water, yeast and sugar.
  2. Once the yeast has dissolved, add in the flour and salt and mix thoroughly (the dough will be very wet)
  3. Cover your bowl and set it in a warm spot for an hour.
  4. In the mean time, thickly coat the inside of your bread pan with the butter (go heavy - trust me!)
  5. After 60 minutes, transfer your sticky dough to the buttered pan and allow it to rise for another 30 minutes while your oven preheats.
  6. Bake at 425 for 15 minutes, reduce the heat to 375 and cook an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the top is a golden brown.
  7. Remove from the pan and allow it to cool for 10-15 minutes before slicing. Don't skip this part - if you leave it in the pan, the flavor is still amazing, but the crust will get soggy from the butter and the steam.
  8. ok. If you can't wait 10-15 minutes for it to cool, I don't blame you...
