"She who leaves a trail of glitter is never forgotten."
Easiest Bread EVER
This is No-Knead Dutch Oven Bread- AKA the easiest bread you’ve ever baked in your entire life. No kidding. If you’ve been following me for any length of time you know how much I love cooking and mixing cocktails, but HATE, yes with all caps, HATE baking. It never works for me, it makes a mess, it’s complicated, it’s time consuming…… But this recipe has made me into a convert. Thanks to Girl Versus Dough I will have fresh, homemade bread whenever I want. And just think of how impressed all your guests/host will be when they find out they are using HOMEMADE bread slices to mop up that delicious HOMEMADE dip- you’ll be the hero of the party.
This recipe is from Girl Versus Dough, I have only made the slightest change by adding roasted garlic. Check out How to Roast Garlic for instructions and throw some in there. Try it with, try it without, try other tasty additions, but just promise me you will make this. Pinky promise. You won’t regret it. Also, if you throw in any other wonderful flavors please share. Thanks.
Mix all the dry ingredients, then add the warm water and mix with a wooden spoon until a wet, sticky dough forms.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set in a warm place for 8-18 hours. (It would work well to mix up in the morning before leaving for work). When it's ready it will have risen, be flat on top, and have lots of bubbles visible.
Pre-heat oven to 450 F and place a 6 qt Dutch Oven inside.
Flour hands, punch down the dough. Dump it out onto a floured square of parchment paper. Shape into a ball, dust with flour. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap and let it rest for 30 minutes while the Dutch Oven pre-heats in the oven.
Carefully lift the parchment paper and set the dough in the Dutch oven. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Then bake an additional 10 minutes without the lid until the top is golden.
