Easy No-Knead Artisan Bread...the easiest recipe for delicious, homemade bread! Just four simple ingredients and you'll be eating homemade bread all week long.

I've been baking this bread for years. 

In fact, it was probably the first yeast bread I started making when my kids were just babies. Why attempt baking bread with littles underfoot? Because it's simple!

It requires no kneading {hence the title} and basically just a big bowl and just four ingredients {one being water}. It tastes like you bought it at a fancy corner street bakery, but golly gee you baked it in your own kitchen!

Without the fancy ingredients and the fancy oven.

Yes, all of you who claim you can't bake homemade bread, well guess what....YOU CAN.

This recipe makes four loaves in total and what is great about this recipe is that you can stick the extra dough in the fridge for up to a week. Just pull off a piece throughout the week to have fresh bread.

You know what this means right? You can be eating homemade bread all week long. It's fantastic alongside my Lasagna Soup {a great dipper for that last bit in the bowl} and even better more untraditionally when sliced thin and used for French Toast.

It's also a great show stopper.

Trust me when I say....neighbors, friends and co-workers absolutely love when you deliver them a freshly baked loaf of bread.

It's a lost art!

Take it one step further - and deliver it with that BIG pot of lasagna soup and you'll be their number one neighbor, friend and co-worker for life.

When you pull this bread out of the steamy oven, you might think to yourself, "did I over bake it?" No, you did not. The crust will be hard and crispy - it's supposed to be that way. The edges will be crunchy and chewy but the inside is soft and pillow-y and down right delicious.

GRAB SOME BUTTER.

The ultimate way to eat this bread is slathered in soft butter. You will thank me for this tip, but stop yourself after a slice so the rest of the family can have some.

Easy No-Knead Artisan Bread

This artisan bread is incredibly easy! It requires little work, just time and tastes like a loaf you picked up at the corner bakery. With a crispy crust and soft and tender middle, grab some soft butter and enjoy.
Prep time: 2 H & 5 MCook time: 35 MinTotal time: 2 H & 40 M

Ingredients

  • 3 cups lukewarm water
  • 6 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 T salt
  • 1 1/2 T yeast

Instructions

  1. In a stand mixer combine all of the ingredients. Using the dough hook attachment, beat to a sticky dough for 60 seconds. If you don't have a stand mixer - a big bowl and elbow grease works too!
  2. Place the dough in a large bowl or food safe bucket, cover and let rise at room temperature for 2 hours. After 2 hours the dough is ready to bake or can be kept covered in the fridge for up to 1 week.
  3. When you are ready to bake a loaf, scoop out a piece of dough the size of a softball. Round it into a ball and place on a sheet of parchment paper. Lightly dust the top of the dough with flour and cover with a clean dish towel. Let it rise for 60 minutes.
  4. Place a rimmed roasting pan or baking sheet on the bottom rack of your oven and preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
  5. After an hour take a sharp knife and cut slits into the dough, going down into the dough about a 1/2 inch deep.
  6. Place the bread in the oven on the top rack (keeping it on the parchment paper). Carefully pour 1 cup of hot water into the hot rimmed pan on the bottom rack, creating steam and shut the door quickly. 
  7. Bake the bread for 30-35 minutes or until it's a deep golden brown. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.
  8. Cut into slices with a serrated bread knife and serve with softened butter.
