I cannot think of a time when I would turn down a slice {or two} of warm homemade bread fresh from the oven.

Because both Ritch and I were raised by parents who made bread from scratch,  one could rightly say that we are bread snobs. However, I know {because you’ve told me} that some of you are intimidated by the idea of making your own bread. Well, you’re in luck because this Easy No Knead Bread is the perfect recipe if you want to try making bread but aren’t fully confident in your bread making skills!

Easy No Knead Bread: Method

There are a two things to note about making this bread!

#1) The dough has to rest for 24 hours. Mix the dough together the night before you plan on serving this Easy No Knead Bread. I know this could be a deal-breaker for some, {who can remember to make dough a day before you want to eat it}?! However, “making the dough” consists of mixing 4 ingredients in a bowl, covering with plastic wrap and then not touching it for 24 hours. And if you have trouble remembering things, this Easy No Knead Bread is definitely worth setting your phone to remind you to get mixin’! 😉

#2) Use a dish with a lid. This Easy No Knead Bread needs to be baked for 30 minutes covered and 15 minutes uncovered. I use this 2 1/2 quart baking dish to bake mine, but you can use a dutch oven if you prefer!

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine.

  3. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and a tea towel.
  4. Let dough sit covered at room temperature for 18-24 hours.
  5. After 24 hours (or at least 1 hour before you want to serve) preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  6. Place a 2 1/2 quart round, lidded dish (Dutch oven or casserole dish) in the oven to preheat.
  7. While oven is preheating, transfer the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface.

  9. Carefully remove the hot baking dish from the oven. Remove the lid and spray the dish with cooking spray.
  10. Gently put the dough ball into the baking dish so it’s evenly distributed.
  11. Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  12. Remove the lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown.
  13. Remove the loaf from the baking dish and let it cool on a rack before slicing. To keep it warm, cover with a tea towel.
