Everyday of this week, I have been sharing with you a new no-knead bread recipe with the idea to encourage you to bake bread at home. I compiled all the recipes in this post for an easy access. There are all different versions, for different occasions.
This no-knead bread recipe is truly a miracle, there is absolutely nothing to do and you get a perfect result every single time. You would never have believed that baking bread at home would be so easy! Again, I insist on the fact that I am not the creator of the no-knead bread, a recipe that already exists a little bit everywhere. I’m just passing over the recipe here as it is clearly too good to be true or to be kept a secret. So if you haven’t heard about it before, it’s high time you discover this fantastic bread… through me, through anyone else, it doesn’t matter, you just need to know the recipe.
So what is a no-knead bread exactly?
It is simply a method of bread baking that uses a very long fermentation (rising) time instead of kneading to form the gluten strands that give the bread its texture. It is characterized by a low yeast content and a very wet dough. The dough is allowed to rise, covered, for 12-18 hours until doubled in size and its surface covered with bubbles. It is then dropped in a Dutch oven that has been preheated in an oven at 450 F and the bread is baked in the Dutch oven with the lid on for 30 minutes and, with the lid removed, for another 10-15 minutes until the crust is golden brown.
Again, there is NOTHING TO DO in this bread recipe. Just mix all the ingredients – flour, instant yeast, salt, and room temperature water – and let sit for about 12 hours or overnight. You do not need to knead the dough at all, not even a little! Also, note that salt is important in a bread recipe, and even if you can feel a little bit scared by the quantity used, you wouldn’t want to use less otherwise your bread would simply be tasteless.
