No-Knead Artisan Bread Ingredients:

  • 1/4 ounce instant or active dry yeast packet
  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (about 105°F)
Easy No-Knead Artisan Bread

Instructions:

  1. Mix dough: Combine flour, salt, and yeast in a large bowl. Pour warm water over the mixture, ensuring it’s not too hot. Mix together using a dough whisk, spatula, wooden spoon, or your hands. The dough should be slightly wet and sticky, but add more flour if necessary.
  2. Rise: Cover the bowl with a towel or plastic wrap sprayed with nonstick spray. Let it rise for 2-8 hours or overnight on the counter. The longer the rise, the better the flavor.
  3. Shape: Generously flour your hands and gently work the dough into your preferred shape, like a French boule or two loaves. Don’t punch it down or knead it. Add flour on top and use a bread knife to create 1-4 lines across the top.
  4. Preheat and Bake: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Place a baking stone, pizza stone, Dutch oven, or iron skillet in the oven for about 20 minutes. Slide the dough onto the hot stone using parchment paper. Add hot water in a broiler pan or ice cubes to create steam. Bake for 25 minutes until browned.
  5. Cool and Serve: Allow the bread to cool on a rack for at least 20 minutes. Slice and serve. Store in a paper bag to maintain the crispiness.
