It has been long overdue, but I finally made my first no-knead bread. A couple months ago, I bought a cast-iron dutch oven and Jim Lahey’s My Bread: The Revolutionary No-Work, No-Knead Method cookbook. I have been anticipating making my first no-knead bread for quite some time after hearing all these positive comments and feedback about how simple and easy the procedure was and how delicious the bread turned out. Here’s a link to the much acclaimed no-knead bread recipe.
The procedure was very simple and easy – no mess, no kneading, nothing complicated about it. I used King Arthur whole wheat bread flour. Here’s a picture of the bread sitting in the dutch oven. Looking kind of good.
The bread was really good. I think I’ll start making my own bread more often and switch it up with the different types of flours and combination of flours and grains. I need to invest in a nice large bread knife though, if I want to make cleaner slices of bread. I can’t wait to try the other varieties of bread in Jim Lahey’s My Bread book. If you’ve ever though about baking your own bread but was hesitant, I definitely recommend giving this recipe I try. I’m really enjoying using this cast-iron dutch oven as well.
