Homemade bread that fits into a busy schedule, or more accurately my son’s schedule. We’ve been enjoying the occasional loaf of bread. The recipe is a version of the no-knead bread that became popular maybe 10 years ago, but even simpler with the “weird steps” removed as Ben found out you could do. There are many video and blogs about this bread. Here is the video my kids used as a guide.
This bread has very high reward to effort ratio and the timing is flexible. My teenage son, not an avid baker, makes this a couple times a month and we are very appreciative.
Ben’s Bread – a streamlined no-knead bread recipe
4 cups flour ( or 1/2 cup can be whole wheat)
¼ teaspoon yeast
1½ to 2 teaspoons salt
2 cups warm water
Mix everything together in a bowl until it looks like one piece of dough.
(For the gluten free bread eaters, I’ve always been curious about this recipe, Gluten Free Bread That Doesn’t Suck, but never had a good reason to try it.)
