Foolproof Cinnamon Raisin Pecan Artisan Bread

Foolproof Cinnamon Raisin Pecan Artisan Bread

3¼ c. all-purpose flour or bread flour
1 3/4 tsp. coarse kosher sea salt
1 3/4 tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. active dry yeast
1½ c. + 2 tbsp. warm water
1/2 c. raisins (fresh is best)
1/2 c. coarsely chopped toasted pecans

  • Whisk the flour, salt, cinnamon and yeast in a medium bowl. While stirring with a wooded spoon, gradually add the water, stir until incorporated. Toss in the raisins and pecans, mix the dough gently and form into a rough ball.
  • Transfer to a large clean (ungreased) bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and let dough rise in a draft-free area at room temperature until surface of dough is covered with tiny bubbles and the dough has more than doubled in size (This usually takes about 18 hours or so, however, it still turns out great with just 12 hours of rise time).
  • When the dough is ready, place a Dutch oven into the oven and turn it on to 450 degrees. Allow it to heat in the oven for 30 minutes.
