No-Knead Homemade Artisan Bread

No Knead Homemade Artisan Bread

I love how impressed people get when I show up with this homemade artisan bread. Somehow we’ve started to believe that making bread is a difficult, all day process that only bakers can accomplish. In reality, it’s one of the easiest, yet most satisfying, things that I make. There is just something so comforting and tangible about a fresh, crusty loaf of bread straight out of the oven, still steaming when broken apart. I say broken apart because for some reason, and please tell me if you agree, bread tastes so much better when it’s broken and not sliced. Maybe it comes from memories of my childhood when mom would bring home a fresh, hot, loaf of french bread and my brothers, sister, and I would tear it apart, piece by piece, with our hands and snack on it while watching her get dinner ready. Or maybe there is just something very unrefined and rustic about tearing that bread that appeals to me…anyway, moving on…

This homemade artisan bread literally cannot get any easier to make. I’ve made many different types of breads and this one is by far the easiest. All you do is stir together 4 staple pantry ingredients, allow the dough to sit on your countertop overnight (or until you are ready to bake), shape it into a ball, and pop it in the oven. So easy but so delicious! I love how crusty the outside is and how the bread inside is so chewy! Spread a little homemade blackberry jam for breakfast, serve it with a balsamic dipping oil as an appetizer, or for dinner to go with this magical white bean soup.

Mix just until combined with a spatula or wooden spoon. Don’t worry about getting a really smooth dough. It’s supposed to look a little messy.

Cover with plastic wrap and set it aside for 12-24 hours. I usually make it the night before and let is stand overnight until I need it.

Cover with plastic wrap and leave it alone for about 30 minutes while dutch oven is preheating.
Remove dutch oven from the oven and carefully place your dough inside. Make 3 shallow cuts on top of the dough for the “Artisan” look. Place lid back on and pop it in the oven for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes, remove the lid and cook an additional 15 minutes so bread becomes golden brown on top.

    I agree wholeheartedly! You must tear your bread. I’ve made this recipe numerous times and will continue to do so.

    Does the dough have to sit that long?

    • Reply Yuli & Irina October 24, 2016 at 11:26 am

      Hi Brandi! Yes, the dough needs at least 12 hours for the yeast to do its job and for the whole batch of dough to rise to the right consistency. I either make it the night before or in the morning. Hope that helps!

    What if I don’t have a Dutch oven?

      Hi Petika, No worries if you don’t have a dutch oven! You can make this bread in any pot/pan/casserole dish with a lid that can withhold temperatures of 450*. Just make sure it doesn’t have plastic or rubber handles and if it does, either cover it in foil or skip the lid altogether and just cover your pot with foil. If you have a cast iron pan, this works great as well. Just tent it with foil and you are good to go! Hope you have a chance to try it out!
