No Knead Bread Recipe

This bread was inspired by my current goal of decreasing the amount of plastic I use (bread is often double wrapped!) and my want to bake on a Thursday (no energy to knead; need it in my belly in an hour!). The resulting dough is wet and is similar to that of a focaccia. I used a combination of bread flour and white whole wheat flour. The bread came out flavorful with a lovely crumb. We will be adding this to our rotation and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

I ate it before I could butter it

Directions:

  1. Stir yeast and honey into warm water. Allow yeast to bloom, ~5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, mix flours, oats, and salt.
  3. Add wet to dry and stir well (I used the paddle attachment in my stand mixer; the dough will be very wet).
  4. Brush an 8 cup loaf pan with the melted butter. Use a spatula to turn the dough out into the loaf pan, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat oven to 350F. Brush with butter, and bake until golden and “hollow” sounding when knocked on, 35-40 minutes.
  6. Remove loaf from pan and allow to cool.
  7. Slice and serve with butter, as desired. Enjoy!
