No-Knead Skillet Bread ­ The Recipe

Step One ­ Add 3 cups of unbleached, all-­purpose flour into a large mixing bowl.

Step Two ­ A 1/2 Teaspoon of instant yeast in the bowl. If you only have standard dry yeast, proof the yeast by mixing 1/2 teaspoon with 1/4 cup of warm water. Let the yeast rest for five minutes before stirring.

Step Three ­ Add 2 teaspoons of kosher salt and thoroughly stir the ingredients together.

Step Four ­ Add 1 1/2 cups of water (warm or cold works just fine).

Step Five ­ Mix the ingredients together with a dough whisk. If it’s not available, use a rubber spatula or a wooden spoon. Only stir the ingredients until they’re properly mixed together ­ remember, don’t over mix.

Step Six ­ Cover the mixing bowl with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 12 to 18 hours

Step Seven ­ Heat the oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Once heated, place a cast-iron skillet or pot into the oven for 30 minutes ­ this preps the skillet for the dough.

Step Eight ­ Add a liberal amount of flour onto a surface covered with pastry cloth, if available. If not, any flat surface will do as long as it’s coated with flour.

Step Nine ­ Pour the dough onto the floured surface and using your hands, which should also be coated in flour, roll the dough into a large, round ball. Try to not to knead the dough during this process.

Step Ten ­ Line the pre­heated pot with parchment paper and carefully add the dough into the pot.

Step Eleven ­ Cover the pot and bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

Step Twelve ­ After the initial 30 minute bake time, remove the lid and continue to bake for an additional 15 minutes to create a lovely crust.

Step Thirteen ­ Remove the bread from the pot and place on a cooling rack. Allow the bread to cool for 10 minutes before cutting and enjoying.
