No-Knead Bread

The first recipe I am dying to share with you is No-Knead Bread.  I must have been living under a rock, but I admit I did not know this even existed!  I will soon share with you another recipe I had been using for bread with very little kneading, but this is even easier and makes the best looking bread I have ever seen!

Original Recipe:

Recipe found online at Simply So Good.  There are also many You-Tube videos featuring this popular recipe, while this video is a little drawn out I did appreciate the folding tip to get the nice split on the top of the bread, and this looks to be the video where the recipe originated from.

Our Changes:

I followed the recipe and timing from Simply So Good, I do not have a cast iron pot unfortunately, but I used a stonewear/ceramic pot with a tight lid that worked just fine.  I think the key is just to have a tight fitting lid as you are steaming the bread, and that's where the magic happens!

Family Thoughts:

Here is my first loaf, I went a little heavy on the flour but it just dusted off:

The next day I added cheese to the dry ingredients, used corn meal on the outside instead of flour and made this beauty:


A family favourite and the recipe I will be famous for among friends I think!  These loaves would make BEAUTIFUL gifts as well and truly only takes 15 minutes of your time (plus baking time).  I'm going to try minced garlic in my next loaf, the flavour ideas are endless, what kind would you make??


  1. I am making this tonight for fresh bread tomorrow :) Can't wait to taste it!

  2. No way, so excited!! It's soooo good and it looks beautiful! You have a pot with a tight lid then? That is a must for it to work

  3. That looks delicious!!! I'll hope to try it some day! haha. ;-)

  4. This bread looks delicious! We all love bread in our family and this would fit in quite well lol

  5. I'd like to try it with cheese bet its delicious.

  6. Yummy! Will try it out this winter!

  7. this has gotta be the best recipe ever!

  8. I wonder if this is the same recipe my son used to bake his no kneed bread. He used a cast iron pot that he especially bought to bake the bread - he'd better bake hundreds of loaves at the price of the pot!

  9. I made this bread and it's so good!!

  10. Oh, the smell of freshly baked bread! It looks fabulous!

  11. excellent ! I love to make bread but havent tried one like this !

  12. The smell of bread baking can make you want to eat the whole loaf, warm top with butter,mmm
