No Knead Bread Recipe

Let sit for 12-18 hours in a bowl covered in plastic
30 minutes of cooking and 15 minutes of top browning later
I am the BIGGEST bread fan EVER!! There is no doubt at all that I am a French woman that is for sure! When I saw the "no knead" recipe on pinterest I nearly passed out from excitement.

I used this recipe from the Sullivan Street Bakery link

It's the simplest that I found after hours and hours of googling no knead bread recipes.  I put it in my own words below, because at least for me, it takes reading something 5 times before I understand it.

Basically all you need is:
 3 cups flour, 1 1/2 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon yeast, 1 1/4 teaspoon salt.  Water should be warmish.

Mix all this together and let sit for 12-18 hours in a bowl wrapped with plastic.  The longer it sits, the more sour-doughy it will taste (think fermentation).

 Dump your dough out and fold twice.  Set this ball on a cotton towel for it to rise for 2 hours.   Flour ball of dough so it is less sticky.

I used a cast iron cauldron (thingy?)  Let that heat up in a 450 degree oven with lid for 30 minutes.  Carefully remove the pan and add your bread.  Cover bread and bake for 30 minutes on 450 degree.  Remove the lid and brown for an addition 15 minutes.

My gooooodness !!! This turned out better than I ever thought possible.  It was crunchy and had a thick crust on the outside, with a lots of holes and a springy center for the butter to absorb in the middle. 

What do you think? Will you try it? I know I will be eating this a lot since I eat so much bread anyways but hate to buy it at the store!!  Hope you enjoy too!

  1. mmm, looks delicious!!
    I can totally relate to the having to read it 5 times feeling!!

    1. right ? was is with that ... i guess sometimes people say things differently but the same :P but it was delicious.

  2. It looks quite yummy! I think I will try it (although, I may wait until it warms up a bit as I live in an old, cold and drafty house). Thanks for sharing it!

    1. oh you could always put the bread to rise by a heating vent. maybe the oven would warm things up.

  3. This is awesome. I tried bread making a while back but it's a lot of work to knead it. This looks so much better than anything I made! I just pinned it so I can make it later!

    1. yay ! yum i hope you do. its worth it for sure.

  4. Oh, thank you for this! I have been meaning to learn how to cook bread and this is a perfect opportunity to learn!
