I know everyone and their brother are making the no knead bread these days so it's really not that big of a deal anymore. I, on the other hand have terrible luck with yeasted bread, so a loaf of bread that looks and tastes like bread, good bread has me dancing in the streets!  I'm so happy I had to share.

Here is the outside. I forgot to take a pic before i cut it.  It's very free form and rustic looking, but beautiful to me because the dough actually turned into bread!!


inside, nice big bubbles


There are a few things i'd change next time around, like cooking it a big longer so the crust stays crisper longer.  It was even a big hit with the 3yr old who in the past has refused to eat crusty bread.  She even requested the bread for lunch yesterday!

Man, that last picture is making me hungry, it looks so tasty.  I bet it would make a great bread bowl for soup or a salad.

Love the no-knead bread.  Did you use the artisan bread in 5 minutes a day recipe?  Haven't bought a loaf since I started making the dough in batches from that book.

I got the "artisan bread in 5 min a day" book for xmas, but I was a little scared to try it out.  I didnt want to get stuck with a bunch of dough in the fridge if I couldnt get the bread to work so i used this recipe instead:  http://steamykitchen.com/blog/2007/09/10/no-knead-bread-revisited

what i did differently was for the first rise i stuck it in the oven(turned off) with the light on.  The lightbulb in the oven kept the dough at a constant temp, which I think had been my problem in the past...it's still pretty cold where I live and we turn the heat way down at night.   also, i did not put the dough in a dish cloth for the 2nd rise, instead i put a piece of parchment paper in a 10 inch skillet and plopped my dough in there, then just lifted my parchment and carefully placed it in the hot dutch oven before baking it.

If you are scared of making bread like i was definately give this, or the recipes in the Artisan bread in 5 min a day a try.  If I could do it so can you!

Funny, you should start this thread.  I've been obsessed with the recipe ever since it was published in 2006 but hadn't got around to actually baking it until a few weeks ago when Mark Bittman did a followup on a quicker no-knead version.  No-knead is as good as any bakery bread I've ever bought.

I baked mine in a makeshift Dutch oven made out of a cast iron frying pan and a ceramic casserole, but I was so delighted with the results, I finally broke down and bought the 5 quart Lodge Cast-Iron Dutch Oven at Target last week for $30.  I thought about getting the enamel version for $65, but they both do the same thing and Target didn't have it in an enamel color I liked. Walmart has the Tramontina enamel cast iron dutch oven for about the same price as the Lodge.

Next, I'm going to experiment with a sourdough version of no-knead bread.  My starter is bubbling away in the kitchen as I write this.  The recipe can be found here:  http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/08/dining/081mrex.html  There are videos on Youtube.  Just search for no-knead bread.

Thanks for posting this!  I have been out of the loop on bread making since 2005 since I didnt even want to be tempted.   I broke my neck and there was no way I could knead but this recipe has brought bread back into my home.  me and the kids made our first loaf yesterday and it was wonderful.  I had to get the kids to do most of the work  (lifting that cast iron pot that has been stuck in the pantry for years).  but it couldnt be better.  my 4 year old loved mixing it too she said it was like sticky playdough.

I LOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOve no knead bread.  Yours looks great.  I love how bubbly the dough gets, when it is the long rested one - the one that sits and stews for 18 hours.  I got so passionate about it, I bought the Artisan Bread in 5 book too - the egg bread is fantastic in that!  Between that, and the bread maker for making kneaded bread, I haven't bought any store bought bread in a couple of months since I made a concerted effort not to.  I also even made my own bagels last week, and two baguettes the other night.

Do a search here for no knead - I posted a bunch of links to other recipes over the past year for sites that have different flavours of no knead, and also some for whole grain recipes too.

This is such great bread.  My mom makes it all the time and likes to experiment with different add-ins like parmesan cheese, different types of olives, fresh herbs, etc.  I really need to try making it myself, but fear I'd eat the whole loaf in one sitting!
