EASY NO KNEAD BREAD
You know the days that you want to indulge in warm, homemade bread (just like all the characters in the Little Red Hen) without all the work that the Little Red Hen has to do.
If you're in that boat, then you'll love this French Peasant Bread. I have to give credit to my dear friend Marcelle who shared this no knead yeast bread with us so many years ago.
It's a staple in our house and one of the best homemade bread recipes when you don't have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen.
- No knead bread active dry yeast
- warm water (fairly hot, but you can still put finger in without burning)
- touch of oil
- corn meal
- melted butter
HOW TO MAKE NO KNEAD BREAD
This fast no knead bread literally takes like 5 minutes to prep!
First, combine the warm water, sugar, salt, and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Stir well. If possible, warm the bowl for a few minutes before adding the ingredients, but you can skip this step if you are in a hurry.
Next, add the flour and stir with a spoon until combined. Do not knead.
Cover the bowl with a light towel and let the dough rise until double, about 1 hour. (You can let it raise up to 3 hours if needed).
Oil a large baking sheet by drizzling olive oil lightly on the pan. Sprinkle corn meal on top of the oil.
Flour your hands and remove the dough from the bowl and form into 2 rounds.
Place each "loaf" on the baking sheet. Let rise for 30 minutes to 1 hour. Before baking, brush the top of each loaf with butter.
Bake at 425 degrees F for 10 minutes. Then reduce the oven temperature to 375 F (keep the bread in the oven) and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Remove from the oven and eat warm or let cool and slice it up.
And voila! You've got yourself warm, homemade bread with little effort!
