I am getting carried away by this bread stuff.
Ever since I first read about the "no knead" bread recipe, I have been in a baking frame of mind. This recipe is so simple and uses so little yeast, it is almost sinful! Talk about an easy to follow recipe...man, this one will have you blown away!
Now, since I made my first loaf I have found several different versions of this recipe, and they are all really, really simple. Other than put the recipe on here, I am including the video from the guy that introduced this whole thing to me. When I first watched it, I had to view it twice as I thought I must have missed a step or two...but it really just as simple as they show. If you haven't seen this, enjoy!
Now, I might mention a couple of things here. It really doesn't matter how long you let this stuff rise before you bake it. In fact, if you don't think it has risen enough on the first rising, let it sit some more. Doesn't matter! Also, the video says to use a setting of 500 degrees, but I used 450. The timing isn't as critical for this recipe as it is with a lot of baking...making it almost "Hermit proof". Trust me on this!
Man, if you don't think that a slice or two of this bread, with some butter and honey spread on it makes the perfect compliment to a fresh brewed pot of coffee in the morning...I don't know what to tell you!
My apologies go out to Treesong, who has an allergy to gluten, for rubbing it in with this post. I'll try and eat your share for you! Just the kind of guy I am, ya know? Now, how about some more coffee, friends?
