Fast And Easy No Knead Homemade Crusty Bread Recipe

Imagine baking a delicious and easy homemade bread that will have your family oohing and ahhing when they see you coming with this beauty.
 If they like big chunky, crusty bread - that is exactly what will happen, trust me!

Today, I'm sharing my bread recipe that I've adapted from my easy 30 Minute Yeast Roll recipe, which I'll share with you another time.


Here's what you'll need:

1 cup plus 2 Tbsp warm water
1/3 cup oil
2 Tbsp active yeast
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 egg
3 1/2 cups flour (I use bread flour)

Here's what you'll do:

  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, combine water, oil, yeast and sugar.  Allow this mixture to rest for 15 minutes.
  • With a dough hook, mix in salt, flour and egg until combined.  Dough will be sticky.
  • Line Dutch Oven with foil or parchment paper.  Spray foil with cooking spray.  Place dough into Dutch Oven, let dough rest for 10-15 minutes.
  • (Optional - drizzle top with olive oil then sprinkle with rosemary or any herbs you may want to add)
    • Cover Dutch Oven with lid, place in preheated oven.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from oven, remove lid and bake for another 10 minutes until bread is as crusty as you want it to be.
    This bread is a thick and heavy bread - perfect for dipping in sauce.

    Tidying Up

    How is it May 2016 already?  It feels like this someone pressed the fast-forward button on this year.
    As always, things are changing and rearranging in my life. I suppose most people would be able to make that statement truthfully for their own lives. Right?  Change is hard for me, I don't know why, but it is -especially as I get older.  When I was younger, I adapted easily.  Not so much now. 
    I always tend to go into shut down mode when things (big life things) happen these days.
    And so, a new chapter begins in the ever-evolving book of my life.  That sounds corny, doesn't it?

    I've spent the last couple hours creating a new header and buttons for my little space.  I'm trying to do a little tidying up here, because I'm hoping to move back in permanently very soon! 

    Hope to see you soon,
