No Knead Bread Recipe

No Knead Bread Recipe

I have used this recipe and I love it! So Yummy...
Servings: One 1-pound loaf

I Have done some experimenting and now double the batch, Then I can keep it in the refrigerator and take out what I want to bake for the day. Before handling make sure you wet or flour your hands. This is a very sticky dough. but is just so yummy when it's hot out of the oven. Crispy thin crust, soft and moist inside...


3 cups bread flour
1/4 teaspoon instant yeast1
teaspoon fine table salt (or 3/4 tablespoon of kosher salt) 
1 1/2 cups warm water 
Covered pot


No knead bread1. Mix dough: The night before, combine all ingredients in a big bowl with a wooden spoon until the dough just comes together. It will be a shaggy, doughy mess. Cover with plastic wrap and let sit on counter-top. I have learned after a 1 or 2 hours you can move forward.

2. Shape & preheat: The dough will now be wet, sticky and bubbly.

With a wet spatula, dump the dough on a floured surface. Fold ends of dough over a few times with the spatula and nudge it into a ball shape. You may also use a bowl instead of a flat surface your dough will be very loose and sticky. You can use your hands if you like, just keep your hands wet so that the dough does not stick. Generously dust your bowl or surface with flour.

Bread dough
Shape your dough to the size and shape you desire. place a towel over your dough and Let it nap for about 1 hour. (In the bowl or surface, which ever you choose)

When you've got about a half hour left, slip your covered pot into the oven and preheat to 450F. (five-quart or larger cast iron, Pyrex, ceramic, enamel...something that can go into a 450F oven.)
Easy bread recipe 
  3. Bake: Your dough should have doubled in size. Remove the pre heated pot from oven. place your dough in in the pot, it doesn't matter which way it lands. Shake even dough out. Cover. Bake 30 minutes.

Uncover, bake another 15-20 minutes or until the crust is beautifully golden and middle of loaf is 210F.

Remove and let cool on wired rack. If not eating right away, you can re-crisp crust in 350F oven for 10 minutes. Best way to eat it? Smear a warm slice with some good butter.
