What could be easier: no-knead bread

This is the easiest bread to make at home, and even I, who works full time outside the home, can make this once or twice a week for my husband and I.  This is a no-knead bread recipe and requires very little effort, in fact, probably no more than 5 to 10 minutes!  It is cheap to make, smells wonderful and tastes so good to eat + it only contains 3 ingredients (no sugar which makes it far better than anything you can buy in the bakery). 

  • 3 cups bakers flour
  • 1 teaspoon of dried yeast (this loaf is made from fresh yeast)
  • 1.5 cups of lukewarm water

Mix by hand and cover.  I usually cover mine with plastic wrap and drape a tea-towel over top.

Leave for as little as 8 hours or up to 20 hours on kitchen shelf.

How hard it that. Check out the full recipe HERE at Streamykitchen.com

Once you have made this, you will never want to go back to shop brought bread again.

We had the freshly baked bread with Kale, sausage, chorizo and bean soup (a slight modification from the original recipe). It was delicious.

(my  apologies but this recipe is from someone's blog but I can't remember who!!) - finally found the link - HERE it is and it came from Blessed Femina.com



  1. The bread looks beautiful I will have to give it a try. I love
    the simplicity of it. The soup looks scrumptious as well.
    My daughters make that soup, and I have had the privilege of enjoying it. Have a great week.

    1. I must go back and find the link to the soup so I can include it - it was so nice I will certainly make it again. Loved the kale in particular.

  2. Your bread and soup look delicious! What a perfect meal. Your new kitchen finds are charming. I especially like the canisters. : )

    So glad you enjoyed the banana bread! I will have to try substituting the ingredients as you did, sounds extra healthy.

    May you have a blessed day!


    1. I plan to make more the banana bread this weekend, but perhaps use crushed pineapple and walnuts. So pleased I found it.


  3. I'm hoping to bake this either tomorrow or Friday... I'll come back and tell you what I think! :)

    1. This bread seems to be lasting longer and still quite fresh and soft today. I used fresh yeast for the first time, Tristan says it made a differences to his rye bread and certainly made mine taste yeastier than the dry yeast.

  4. This looks wonderful! I love making homemade bread. I usually let my bread machine do the kneading for me, but this looks too simple not to try.

    1. I didn't think it could be so easy , but it is. I'm going to start playing around with different grains and see how it goes .

  5. Now that is AWESOME! Definitely going to try this. Do you know if it works with wholemeal flour?
    And do you know the technical difference between regular flour & bakers flour?
    Thanks :-)

    1. I only ever use bakers flour, it might have something to do with the gluten in it?? Yes, you can use wholemeal - most recipes tend to have 1/2 white and 1/2 wholemeal.

  6. oh and how long does it need in the oven? I assume a hot oven?!?!??

    1. Hot oven 200C or there abouts - hot oven. Heat oven and pot (with lid on) until it reaches the temp, remove pot from oven careful drop bread straight in and quickly cover. Cook covered for 30 mins, remove lid and cook for another 15 mins (this browns up the top).
