No-Knead Bread

I think I've mentioned before that I don't bake.  Ever.  That's why I have a bread maker.  And why I use said bread maker to make the dough I use for pizza.  It's why the closest I come to baking is pushing the "start" button.

But a friend posted about this no-knead bread, and I had to give it a try.  Even though there is the tiniest bit of yeast involved.

It looked a little intimidating at first, but once I read through the directions, I was good to go.  Essentially, you start it at night, and then a few hours before you want it the next day you do about 5 minutes of "work" and 15 minutes of waiting, and then you wait another 2 hours and then you pop it in the oven for 40 minutes.  Voila.  Wonderful and delicious crusty bread.  From your oven.  Not the amazing bread place down the street or even the market.  But your very own oven.

I love it.  This is a definite repeat.

Detailed directions with pictures, here.

  1. yay! i'm so glad you tried it and like it! it's so great to be able to make yummy bread out of your own oven with so little effort, isn't it =) in case you haven't seen it, i tried this version with some whole wheat flour in it tonight: i still needed the regular 1 1/2 to 1 5/8 cups of water. i think i'll be doing this version from now on =)
