I have been trying to master artisan bread for years, and I mean FOR YEARS. I never seem to get it right; it is either comes out as hard as a hockey puck, or it has more holes in it than a piece of swiss cheese.  I found several no knead recipes on the web, but none of them used bread flour(to me the bread is lighter when you use bread flour) several like this one used the pot but not bread flour.  A lot of the bread recipes were pretty bland too I like a little flavor so I added some dried herbs.( you can sub in what you like)  I made a breakfast bread too and will share that recipe soon( I want to try a few more dry fruits before I share). If you’re bread challenged like me; I promise you follow this recipe and your friends will think you’re an experienced baker. I promise I won’t tell if you won’t:)





Get a large mixing bowl now add all your dry ingredients, next add your room temperature water. Blend until all the dry ingredients are moist. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the bowl and leave in a warm place overnight. It might sound crazy, but I do a lot of laundry in the evening, so I leave mine covered with plastic wrap and a towel in my laundry room. (A pseudo proofer of sorts.)After about 24 hours it is time to bake this delicious dough. First, preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Then place your large empty Dutch in the oven for about 20 minutes. Remove it and place a piece of Parchment paper inside now remove your bread from the large bowl placing it on a floured cutting board. Form your dough into a large ball do not knead or move it around too much. Place your perfectly shaped loaf into the dutch oven with the top on for 25 minutes. Now, I like a darker crust, so I take the top off at 25 and place it make in for another 15 minutes. You can play with the time to get the crust to your liking.  Not need to cool grab some high-quality salted butter, not the great value brand people the good stuff; this bread deserves it. And ENJOY!

    1. It does and the breakfast bread is delicious too. I wish I could take the credit but I swear it is the bread flour that makes the difference
