No Knead Garlic Bread

First thing’s first, guys. I love bread. Especially a no knead garlic bread.

So that’s why when I found this recipe, I was excited. I could make my own, squishy, soft bread MYSELF? I was up for the challenge.

Thing is, this was no challenge at all. 4 ingredients and roughly 3 hours later, I had an incredible loaf of bread in front of me in my kitchen.

This recipe requires no finesse and no real kitchen skills. You throw the ingredients into a bowl, let it rise, and stick it in a covered dutch oven to steam and then bake it for a crunchy outside crust. It also looks so freaking gorgeous, like you really put in some grand effort. Your friends will be really impressed with this bread.

I thought it might also be a great charcuterie bread! A few slices of this rustic bread with some soft compound butter will make this even more memorable.

I mentioned the Dutch oven for this bread, but any covered pan will work. You want to build up steam in the oven to cook the loaf first. That helps you achieve a springy inside. You get a loaf with a little bit of chew and the baking it uncovered will create a crunchy outer crust.

From my tests of this recipe, this bread lasts around seven days. My first loaf barely made it a week – Bryan really loved it!

So, try this recipe, and let me know what you think. What other flavorings would you add to your no knead garlic bread dough?

No Knead Garlic Bread

October 1, 2017

Garlic bread that can be risen and baked in one day!

  • 3h 10m
  • 45m
  • 3h 50m

Ingredients

  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 package Active dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 cups Hot Water
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • Garlic seasoning to taste

Instructions

  1. Add flour, yeast, and salt to a large bowl.
  2. Mix thoroughly to get rid of any lumps.
  3. Get hot water between 125 and 135 degrees F (no hotter or cooler, or your yeast won\'t rise quickly).
  4. Add in any flavorings or spices here. I like to add garlic or a little bit of rosemary to my loaf.
  5. Pour the hot water into the dry ingredients and mix well until you get a shaggy looking, sticky dough. You want it to be sticky and not dry, so that you get a good, springy bread when it comes out of the oven.
  6. Place in a warm corner, covered with saran wrap for 3 hours, you\'ll see bubbles in the top as it rises.
  7. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
  8. After it has risen, flour your work surface, and roll the dough over, shaping it into a nice ball.
  9. Place it onto parchment paper, and into a dutch oven.
  10. Let it rise for another 30 minutes in the dutch oven.
  11. Cover the dutch oven, and place it into the oven for 30 minutes.
  12. Uncover, and remove parchment paper, and place it back in the oven to get some color, about 15-20 minutes.
  13. Let cool before cutting, and enjoy!
