This no knead bread recipe is the stuff dreams are made of. This post should actually be called “The No Knead Bread that No One Told Me About” – because it was news to me! Very very good news. 🙂
Nothing beats the smell of freshly baked bread on a chilly day. It’s comforting, and means you’re going to tuck into a big warm loaf of something tasty.
If smells of fresh bread are wafting around, it also means someone has likely put in hours upon hours of kneading and rising and resting and who-knows-what-else, to achieve this tasty end-product.
Is it worth all the fuss? Yes, it must be, otherwise humans wouldn’t have been baking it for thousands of years….
But what if there was a shortcut?
The good news is my husband actually found the shortcut, and it’s a ringer for the real-deal.
So why haven’t we heard of no knead bread before? It’s one of the world’s great mysteries.
This no knead bread is as easy as it gets. It just takes a little planning ahead to have freshly baked bread on it’s way to your mouth. Just mix it up, let it rise overnight, and with minimal effort you’ll have crisp, warm, freshly-baked bread in no time.
We added rosemary to our bread, but you could really add anything to flavor it – or just leave it plain. Some other mix-ins ideas that sound yummy include: caraway, parmesan, Italian seasoning, chopped olives, poppyseeds & lemon zest, sunflower seeds.. the list goes on and on!
Just make sure your mix-ins keep the dough light enough to allow the bread to rise. If you have any doubts, just watch a season of The Great British Baking Show and you’ll know exactly what I’m talking about.
