This bread recipe requires no kneading and no fancy equipment. It has four simple ingredients for delicious crusty bread.
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon instant yeast
1 1/2 cups water (at room temp)
Place flour, salt and yeast in a mixing bowl. Stir dry ingredients together. Add room temperature water and stir to evenly distribute. A lumpy dough ball will form. Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and let it sit overnight. About 12 to 18 hours is best. When you’re ready to bake the bread sprinkle flour on top of the dough. Gently shape dough into a loaf while lightly coating with flour because dough will be sticky. Transfer dough to a greased casserole dish or baking pan. Let dough rest again in the baking dish while you preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bake uncovered for about 30 to 35 minutes or until loaf is golden brown on the edges. Let cool for 5 minutes. Bread is delicious served warm with organic butter or olive oil and aged balsamic vinegar.
