The BEST No Kneed Bread


"Super amazed with this recipe! Respect goes to Mark Bittman for this one. Like he said, so simple a 5 yo can do it. And you can't beat the quality, even at a high end bakery."

  1. Prep:
  2. Mix Flower, salt and yeast
  3. Stir to mix

  7. .
  8. .
  9. Cooking:
  10. Take cast dutch oven/iron pot-with cover-and heat for 30 min in 450 degree oven.
  11. Meanwhile, take dough out onto a heavily flowered surface, and form into a ball.
  12. After pot is heated, just drop the dough into the pot, cover, and return to oven.
  13. Cook 30 minutes with cover on.
  14. Remove cover, and allow it to cook another 15-20 minutes (until golden brown)

  20. Note to self:
  21. proof yeast in the water, and add 1T raw sugar
  22. let bread rise in cool area of house-if it proofs too fast, yeast runs out of fuel, and starts to ferment-bread smells like booze (maybe only proof half yeast in water, mix rest of yeast like original recipe.
  23. king author flower is the best...all purpose or bread flower
  24. use fresh flower
  25. 1T of olive oil to mix, keeps bread super moist
  26. the oven runs hot, place temp 10-20 degrees cooler
  27. moisture level of dough necessary for proper rising in oven, other wise a crust will form too fast and not allow full height. (work-around: cook on lower temp?)
  28. using honey in the bread may be detrimental. Since honey has antibacterial properties, maybe it's killing the yeast?
  29. don't use normal choco. chips
  30. make own chocolate chips: High % chocolate bar, freeze, break...baking chocolate may be an alternative as well
  31. maybe use coco powder too
  32. and maybe coconut shavings or coconut milk
