    Followed woodcutters post on this

    Single loaf

    3 cups unbleached AP flour

    1 3/4 tsp salt

    1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast

    1 1/2 cup water

    Add all the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Then add the water and mix until it all comes together. Cover with a towel and leave on the counter for 11-24 hours.

    After it has raised, Preheat the oven to 450 with Dutch oven or ovens inside. Put the ball of dough on some loose flour and keep tucking the edges under. Then place on some parchment paper and lift into the DO. Bake at 450 for 30 minutes with the cover on and then 15 with the cover removed. Done.

    This recipe is so forgiving, I screwed up when measuring my flour, packed it in giving me almost 4 cups in my mixing bowl.

    Started the dough at 10:30A.M. yesterday


    I let it sit til 5:30 A.M. almost 19 hrs.


    Dough was dry on the top I spritzed it with some water waited an hr to get it looking like above

    Baked it and hoped for the best.


    Thanks Todd have a slice


    Thanks for looking.

    Great looking bread.

    Other than convenience is there an advantage to no-knead bread?

    Not having to knead it, and not being a baker I was very well satisfied being able to do it.

    All that is left to do is slather butter on both sides of a slice and fry in your cast iron skillet. Your loaf looks like bread baking magazine cover photo!

    Thanks for the kind words, I am glad that I was able to catch that mistake, it will make a better baker out of me. The part that was left I made Bread Pudding


    Thanks again

    Looks like you've been baking all your life! For some reason I struggle with no knead bread. I've had mixed results anyway. But when it works, it's absolutely Heavenly!
