No Knead Bread

Posted by Lisa

This is truly the most forgiving loaf of bread I’ve ever attempted.  It’s a great dinner table bread.  I make it frequently.

Blend with your hand in a bowl:

3 C Flour
1/2 t Instant or rapid rise yeast (they’re the same thing).  If you buy it in those packets, just throw in a packet.
1 1/2 t Salt
1 1/2 C Water (can be cold or warm)

Cover bowl with plastic wrap.  Let rest 4-18 hours (anything in that range is fine).  Lightly flour a work surface, spread out the dough and fold it into a neat square-ish loaf.  Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest for 15-30 min.

Preheat a Pyrex round casserole dish and lid to 450.  Once the dish is hot, take off lid, throw in the dough, put the lid back on and bake for 30 minutes.  Remove lid and bake another 15-30 minutes.  Pull it out of the oven and dish to cool when you like the color of the top.

This is a super crispy crust and oh so yummy.  Bon apetit!
