The Popular No-Knead Bread
I finally made the popular no-knead bread. Mmm…I actually love fresh baked bread. The bread is delicious. It has chewy crumb and thin crisp crust at the same time- the way bread is meant to be. Glad to see that this recipe works in the real world. You can find the recipe here. The recipe has four basic ingredients: Flour, water, salt and yeast. I used
1 +1/2 cups of water instead of 1+ 5/8 cups and 1+3/4 teaspoons salt instead of 1+1/4 teaspoons. Use parchment or waxed paper instead of cotton towel so the dough will not stick. I recommend oven temperature at 475 degrees F / 240 degrees C / Gas mark 9. It is a recipe that you don’t knead, infact you do very little to it at all and it comes out just great. Time does all the work in creating the gluten that gives bread its outstanding texture.
