Insanely Easy No-Knead Bread

This delicious bread is so easy to make and is almost foolproof! I haven’t made a bad one yet. It is also really tasty and has the added bonus of reducing waste as I now don’t need to buy bread packaged in plastic bags.

It is cheap to make too. I can get 3 loaves of bread from a one 1kg bag of plain flour which costs $3.00. That works out at a little over $1.00 per loaf – factoring in the cost of the yeast and cooking which is minimal.

It will only keep fresh for a few days due to not having any preservatives, but also is great toasted when it is starting to dry out a bit. (Don’t worry, it probably wont last more than a few days anyway, as it is very moreish!)

I am loving the convenience of it and you can make it in a few minutes during the day. You can also make it and leave it to rise overnight, cooking it first thing in the morning for a great breakfast loaf.

You only need to put in a half teaspoon of yeast for the overnight version as it will overflow the tin otherwise.

Ingredients:

  • 3 cups plain white flour or 2 cups white flour and 1 cup of wholemeal or spelt flour
  • 1 teaspoon dry yeast
  • Half teaspoon salt
  • 1 and a half cups of lukewarm water

To Make:

Add the dry ingredients to a bowl, and mix together.

Slowly add the water and mix together using a knife or a spoon to form a dough. Mix in enough water for the dough to be moist. If you make it too wet, mix in a little more flour.

Don’t worry too much if the dough is a little wet, the recipe is very forgiving.

Spray a loaf tin with olive or canola oil.

Empty the dough into the loaf tin and spread evenly to fill the tin.

Allow bread to rise to the top of the dish before baking.

Cover with a teatowel and leave in a warm place to rise. It usually takes a couple of hours to rise. When the dough has risen to the top of the tin it is ready to bake.

Bake in a moderate oven – 180 degrees C – for about 30 minutes until it is an even light brown colour and sounds hollow when tapped.

Tip the loaf onto a cooling rack and when cooled store in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

Serving suggestions:

Eat when warm with lashings of Nuttlex and your choice of topping such as Vegemite, Vegan Cheese, Avocado, or Peanut Butter and Jam. It is also delicious fresh or toasted when eating soup.
