Baking Bread at Sea: A Simple Recipe

Now, let’s get to the fun part – baking bread at sea! Here’s a simple bread recipe that you can try on your next yacht delivery:


– 4 cups of bread flour (spoon & leveled, plus more for hands and pan)

– 2 teaspoons of instant yeast

– 2 teaspoons of coarse salt

– 1 1/2 cups of water (close to room temperature at about 70 F, 21 ° C)

– Cornmeal (optional: for dusting pan)


1. Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl.

2. Gradually add the water, mixing until the dough comes together.

3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 10 minutes, until the dough is smooth and elastic.

4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover, and let rise in a warm place for about 2 hours, or until it has doubled in size.

5. Punch down the dough, shape it into a loaf, and place it in a greased loaf pan dusted with cornmeal.

6. Cover and let rise again until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

7. Preheat your yacht’s oven to 375°F (190°C). Bake the loaf for about 30-35 minutes, or until golden brown and the loaf sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

8. Let the bread cool before slicing and enjoy!
