No – Knead Bread

Quick no-knead bread

This is a new recipe to me I have seen a lot of no-knead breads recently on Instagram and having done a little research it seemed all these no-knead breads take so long some need to sit for up to twenty hours. I began to think if I used a slightly warmer than usual water could I cut down the proving time and the answer was resounding Yes! The bread you get is delicious really aerated throughout with a sourdough/ciabatta style crust and delicious chew. It gets this wonderful crust thanks to the cooking process, It’s cooked in a casserole pan with a lid on for most of the cooking which lets the bread steam and develop that great crust then it comes off for the last fifteen minutes to colour and give it crustiness.

I knew when making this bread that I wanted to make this rustic bread with plain flour making it more affordable and easier to keep the ingredients required for making it available.
