no knead bread

Here's my first attempt at no knead bread in my new dutch oven. I'm probably the last person in the world to try this fantastic recipe. It seems to have exploded through popular culinary consciousness since appearing in the NY Times a few years ago. There are a few things I'll try differently next time, like add a little more salt and bake it at a slightly lower temperature because the bottom burned slightly, but overall it was a pretty successful first try. It sure looks good! And it tastes great too. I can't believe how crunchy the crust is! And the inside is very soft, moist and, as you can see, bubbly. I can't wait to get creative with this recipe! This dutch oven is making me more excited about cooking/baking than I have been in a long time.


  1. that's awesome! i'm ashamed to admit i'd never heard of a dutch oven before, but now the possibilities seem endless! i'd love to be able to bake the perfect bread, and this sounds like something i'd love to have lying around for a midnight snack :)

  2. ooh, you're not the last one! I should try it to, it looks delicious!

  3. I have only just started making bread at home ver recently - this one looks so easy, I think I will give it a try too!
