The easiest recipe for No Knead bread I’ve ever made. Toss a few ingredients together and forget about it for 16+ hours, then bake to gluten infused perfection.
I’m going to let you in a little something about me. There are few things that have me heart and soul (other than my family) completely. I’m talking serious food lust here my friends. Here it goes….BREAD. Yep, any type of bread. Banana bread. Crusty bread. Sweet bread. If it has bread in the name, then it’s all mine (except the bread from brains – let’s just not go there). I imagine part of this love of bread was instilled in me by my grandmother. She is the queen of Portuguese Sweet Bread and known county-wide for her buttery rounds of gluten deliciousness. So I guess it’s no wonder I’m like Superman and bread is my Kryptonite. This no knead bread is hands down the best and easiest recipe I’ve ever made.
You don’t need to be a serious bread baker to make this. The only thing needed is a cast iron dutch oven. I have found them at thrift stores and even reasonable priced at stores like TJ Maxx or Ross. Of course, the Le Creuset dutch oven also works fabulously if you have the means to own one.
This bread was baked right in the dutch oven and it came out just like it’s pictured. Perfect. Chewy outer crust and soft crumb inner. Delectable. Now I wish I had more! Everyone at dinner raved on and on about it. I think some may have even thought I went to the store and bought the loaf and stuck it in the pot. But I assure you, its from scratcharoo and so easy to make. Let’s stop jabbering and get to the recipe, shall we?
