A Great Way to Spend the Next Few Hours of Your Life: Make No Knead Artisan Bread

If you were waiting in suspense to know how you should spend the next few hours of your life, the wait is over. As a disclaimer, this is from the opinion of an extreme foodie. This foodie happens to believe that food brings people together and therefore is very much worth the effort.

Make some no-knead artisan bread! In fact, this bread requires so little “babysitting” that you might even have some time to do another activity such as watching your favorite TV show. My Auntie Cynthia (not actually my aunt; all people my parents’ age are uncle or auntie in Asian culture) manages to always whip up this bread for family gatherings even though she has two incredibly energetic kids.

Auntie Cynthia’s No Knead Artisan Bread

For one loaf you’ll need:

2 tablespoons yeast

1 tablespoon sugar

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

2 cups warm water

4 cups of flour

Method

In a large bowl, hand mix all ingredients together. P1040842P1040845

Cover with a towel and let rise for 1-2 hours.

Here, you have two options depending on when you want your bread.

a) Place inside the refrigerator to keep until you want to bake it.

b) On a lined baking sheet, form a loaf with generously floured hands.

Bake at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes. Then, lower the temperature to 350 degrees F and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Serve warm or cool completely. Store in airtight container.

Doesn’t this sound and look easy? I encourage you to give it a try. As it rises, you can whip up a pot of soup and then you’ll have a complete meal.
