No-Knead Bread

The smell of freshly baked bread through the house.  Doesn’t that make you feel warm and fuzzy all over? Yeah me too! I just dislike all the kneading and rising…. I found this no-knead recipe in a Mother Earth News magazine years ago and was hooked after the first time I made it.  It’s basically set it and forget it, for like 14-20 hours.  It’s a very simple recipe, keeps well up to a week in a ziplock bag, and is delicious toasted.  This is not your sliced Wonderbread. It is chewy on the outside and soft on the inside, in other words a slice will keep you going.  The bread is cooked in a dutch oven (cast iron pot) and that is what gives it the wonderful texture.

No-Knead Bread

Print Recipe
Serves: 4-8 Cooking Time: 30 minutes(+overnight to rise)

Ingredients

  • 3 cups all-purpose or bread flour
  • 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water

Instructions

1

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix gently until well incorporated (mixture will be soft)

2

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and a large towel and let sit in a warm spot for 14-20 hours. I usually start the bread at night and finish it next day.

3

Let dough out of bowl on lightly floured surface and fold onto itself a few times

4

Place dough on a floured tea towel and fold.

5

Place back into bowl and let rise in a warm spot for 2 hours.

6

30 minutes before time is up, place dutch oven (cast iron pot) in oven that's been preheated at 450F.

7

Remove pot from oven, lightly sprinkle bottom of pot with flour and drop dough inside.

8

Place lid back on pot and bake in oven for 30 minutes.

9

If you like a crispier crust, you can remove the lid after 30 minutes and further bake for another 10-15 minutes.

10

Enjoy!

Notes

*I use a 5.5QT pot, the smaller the pot the more height you will have to your bread and vice versa.

Found you through Cooking in Kentucky. Love how simple this bread looks. And judging from a few of your other posts, you may actually make me look like a gourmet chef!

I made this bread today. I used 100% white whole wheat flour and it turned out perfectly. I love, love, love this recipe. Are you on Instagram? I will post a photo and would love to tag you.

I’ve made lots of different kinds of bread but never tried the “no knead”. I’m sure it’s good just like all homemade bread 🙂

Well it doesn’t get much easier than that, does it?!! Have you tried using some WW flour?

Yum! My daughter would rather have a loaf of warm bread on her birthday than a cake!
