This bread is great for beginners because it requires no kneading at all. It’s a nice and crunchy bread that makes a great side. It’s especially good when it’s warm out of the oven. This loaf won’t last long!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp quick rise yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups filtered water
In a large bowl, mix together the dry ingredients.
Add water and stir.
Cover with plastic wrap and leave for 18 hours.
This is what it looks like after a few hours.
This is what it looks like when it’s ready.
Flour your work surface and put the dough on it. Dough will be very sticky.
Fold the dough over on itself and cover with more flour. Let dough rest for 15 minutes.
Coat a cotton kitchen towel with a thick layer of flour.
Put the dough on the floured towel.
Cover with another floured towel and let it rise for about 2 hours.
30 minutes before the dough is ready, preheat the oven to 400F and put cast iron skillet in the oven to heat.
When the dough’s ready, carefully remove your skillet from the oven and add the dough. The edges of the dough that hit the hot skillet will cook and it will smell amazing!
Cover the skillet with a lid or cookie sheet and bake 30 minutes.
Remove the lid and bake until the loaf is golden brown, another 15 to 30 minutes. Enjoy this bread warm!
