Introduction: No Knead Artisan Bread
This bread is really easy and tastes really nice. You don't need to knead the dough and it takes very little time besides the cooking and the proofing/prooving time.
Step 1: Combine Ingredients
In a large bowl combine:
3 cups flour
2 teaspoons sugar
3 teaspoons yeast
sprinkle of salt
dash of oil
1.5 cups warm water
combine all ingredients in bowl you can use a wooden spoon or your hands. The mixture should be elastic-like and flexible.
Step 2: Leave to Rise
Cover your bowl with a clean tea-towel and leave to rise for 2 hours. If you live in a colder climate I really recommend putting a hot water bottle beneath the bowl as it aids the rising process.
Step 3: Bake
Once the dough has risen flour a surface and mould into a ball shape. Using circular cupping motions.
Bake at 200 degrees c /400 degrees f for 42-45 minutes. When your bread comes out it should be a gorgeous golden brown colour.
Step 4: Done
This bread is so tasty and simple. Its served lovely fresh or toasted. I really enjoyed making it also.
