No Knead Bread
If you love making homemade bread, this easy, no knead bread recipe is a great one for you to try. Baking homemade bread can be such a fun thing to do. Most people don't delve into bread making because they think it is too difficult or requires a lot of skill. While baking homemade bread does require some skill and patience, these are very easy things to learn and get better at with practice. Working your way through this recipe is quite simple and it doesn't require a bunch of ingredients either, which is great. The bread ingredients for this recipe include only flour, sugar and yeast. The yeast in bread is what makes the bread rise, and is what makes it nice and light and airy. The first types of bread that were made long before our time were unleavened breads, meaning that they didn't rise, so they didn't have yeast in them. Enjoy this homemade bread fresh from the oven with butter or jam.***
Makes 3 loaves
This is a printable recipe.
3 cups warm water
1 1/2 Tablespoons salt
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons active dry yeast
6 1/2 cups all purpose flour
Tools: resealable large container.
(Makes regular 3 loaves)
*Note, with this method you can make the dough all at once and then keep it in the fridge and just bake one at at time.
First, take 3 cups of warm water and pour it into the resealable container.
Stir in 1 1/2 tablespoons of salt and 1 Tablespoon sugar.
Add yeast and stir in.
Let mixture sit for 5 minutes.
Add flour and stir until all the flour is incorporated. You will create a big sticky mass.
Place lid loosely on top and let the mixture sit at room temperature until it has doubled (1-2 hours)
When it hits the top of the container, punch it down and seal the lid on tight.
Place in the fridge for 6 hours or overnight (up to 2 weeks).
When you are ready for a loaf of bread, grease a bread tin with some butter.
Preheat oven to 425F.
Use clean, oiled hands to pull out a chunk of dough (about 1/3 of the dough in the container).
Form it into a log and place it into the bread pan.
The rest of the dough can stay sealed in the fridge for when you want to use it.
Baked for 30-35 minutes until golden.
If you like a dark crunchy crust, at 25 minutes increase the temperature to 475F.
