This recipe is a mix of two no-knead bread recipes. The recipe makes a BIG loaf, and we’re only two, but Nikolas is a carb monster so a loaf lasts us maximum 4 days.
This recipe takes time. The first rise requires 8-10 hours so I like to stir it up before I go to bed and leave it overnight. This recipe also requires a Dutch oven (but if you don't have one, use an oven-safe pot with an oven-safe lid). Either way, it needs to be at least 7.5" across and 4" deep.
NO KNEAD CRUSTY CHEWY BREAD
🥖 3 cups all purpose flour
🥖 3/4 teaspoon instant yeast
🥖 2 tsp salt
🥖 1-1/2 cups cool water
🥖 Handful of cornmeal or semolina (optional)
Stir all ingredients together in a large bowl. This step literally takes 10 seconds. Cover and leave for 8-10 hours.
Common! how easy was that? This is a great thing to try during the Flatten the Curve quarantine. You’ll master it in no time, and feel prepared should the stores run out of bread.
You can substitute yeasts. Just search online how to do it. King Arthur Flour has a helpline! Bake this and send me a pic before you eat the whole loaf 👀
