No-knead bread for beginners

Awesome recipe for people like me who’d like to make their own bread but are too intimidated with the kneading part.

Since I found this technique, I no longer buy bread and instead I’m making my own every 3 or 4 days for breakfast or for snack time.

It’s really easy and tasty 😋

What you’ll need

  • 14oz tap water (400ml or 1,75 cups)
  • 1,5 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 3,5 cups of flour (better if you have bread flour, otherwise all purpose works just fine)

What to do

  1. Pour the water in a big bowl.
  2. Add salt and yeast, give it a little stir.
  3. Add flour then mix everything with the handle of a spoon until the flour has absorbed all the liquid.
    • This step should take less than 5min.
  4. Cover with a plastic wrap or a cloth then let it rest on top of your kitchen counter between 8 to 24h.
  5. After at least 8h, give your dough a quick mix with the handle of the spoon then transfer in your greased mold.
    • I use a rectangle mold greased with olive oil.
  6. Let it proof again with a cover between 30min to 1h.
  7. Preheat your oven at 225°C.
  8. Once the proof is done, cook your bread for 30min or until the top is golden brown.
  9. Ready to eat!
