No-knead Bread


This morning I woke up and thought it would be a great idea to make some bread from scratch. I’m not a everyday bread person but I really do enjoy freshly made bread every now and again. This recipe is extremely simple to make, no-knead, and all you need is four ingredients. It really can’t get much more simple then that; this is fool proof! No special baking skills or equipment required!pan

Easy No-Knead Bread
  • 1 package active dry or rapid rise yeast (2¼ tsp yeast)
  • 2 cups luke warm water
  • 4⅓ cups flour (all-purpose, bread, or self-rising)
  • 2 tsp kosher salt (if using self-rising flour, omit salt)
  1. In a large bowl combine the yeast and water.
  2. Add the flour and salt and stir until combined. The batter will be lumpy, but there should not be any visibly dry flour left.
  3. Cover with a towel or loose plastic wrap and let rise until double in size, about 2 hours. (this time will be shorter if using rapid rise yeast)
  4. Generously sprinkle flour over top of risen dough and cover hands with flour. Pick up the dough and pull down on the sides shaping into desired shape. Transfer onto baking sheet, skillet or pot.
  5. Let dough rise again for 45 mins-1 hour.
  6. Preheat oven to 375ºF.
  7. Slash the top of the dough several times with a sharp knife.
  8. Bake for 45 mins-1 hour until the browned on top and cooked through.
  9. Let cool before slicing.
  10. If bread is left over, place sliced side down on a cutting board and leave and room temperature.
