Easy No Knead Bread

Thursday, April 2, 2020
This is the easiest no-knead bread recipe you will ever make and have freshly baked bread on your table in less than 3 hours.



The light and airy crispy dough are fantastic with any meal especially stews, chili and hot out of the oven slathered with butter.



Our family loves this bread recipe and it will make around 2 long french bread loaves or one large loaf.



You don't need an industrial mixer to make this fabulous bread and it comes out looking like you spent all day kneading it!



All you need is a very large glass bowl, a large spoon to mix the dough with, and yes it's that simple.



The bread bakes into a hard golden crust with a rustic-style finish and can be transformed into any style or shape you like depending on the pan you choose to use.



The smell will make your mouth water while it's baking, and it may not make it to the dinner table.



We love bread of all kinds and often make homemade pizza, pizza fritta (fried dough), mom's sausage bread and antipasto roll.



Scroll down and print off the recipe I now don't mind making bread for every meal it's so fast!

Easy Bread Recipe




When I first started making homemade bread years ago, I hardly had time for all the kneading and proofing the yeast, and as much as I love bread it was lots of work and yes worth the trouble.



This bread is super simple, fast and the results are astounding for flavor.



If you want something that's not fussy, you're pressed for time in the kitchen or don't have a fancy mixer, this is the best recipe you will ever find.



It comes out perfectly every time and I just love the results and if you have any leftover the next day this makes the best toast for breakfast.

We love asiago cheese baked on the top and sesame seeded is another family favorite.



I made these loaves plain so you can see the bread as it is, the dough is quite sticky so I don't recommend that you try to use this for stuffing.



This dough can easily be made into pizza shells.

Easy No Knead Bread

Prep time: 2 hourCook time: 35 MTotal time: 2 H & 35 M
This is a super simple no-knead bread mixed all in one bowl with no heavy-duty mixer involved or kneading. The very sticky dough will rise quickly and makes a delicious light airy bread in around 3 hours from start to finish.

Ingredients:

  • 3 - 1/4 cups plus 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1- 1/4 cups lukewarm water plus 3 tablespoons
  • 1/4 cup lukewarm water (for dissolving the yeast)
  • 1 - 3/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 1 - 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Optional Toppings: Italian herb  seasoning and granulated garlic
  • poppy seeds, sesame seeds, onion flakes, Asiago cheese or other shredded cheeses

Instructions:

How to cook Easy No Knead Bread

  1. In a glass measuring cup add 1/4 cup of lukewarm water, 1 teaspoon sugar, and yeast.  Set this aside for 5 minutes stirring to combine evenly.
  2. In a large glass bowl ( around 8-quart size), add the flour making an indent in the center of the bowl.
  3. Pour the yeast mixture in the center of the flour, then add the water, salt and mix with a large spoon.
  4. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place away from drafts for 2 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 420 degrees for around 30 minutes while the loaves are sitting in pans you are using.
  6. I used a french bread loaf pan lined with parchment paper for my loaves.
  7. Note: Other pan suggestions are cast iron,  small dutch oven pan or baking sheets, loaf pans or cake pans,  lined with parchment paper to bake the bread in.
  8. Using a spoon or silicone spatula, spoon the dough into whatever parchment-lined pan you choose.
  9. This makes two long french loaves or 1- 10  inch round skillet or 1 very large loaf pan.
  10. Sprinkle the top of the dough with some flour and let this sit around 30 minutes in the pan.
  11. If using additional toppings, sprinkle them on top before baking this bread.
  12.  Bake for approximately 35 to 45 minutes depending on the size of the pan.
  13. The top will be browned and crispy looking when cooking is completed.
