Hang on to your hats folks! You see this loaf of bread? This is the easiest loaf of bread EVER! I know that’s a bold statement but I truly feel that anyone can make this crusty no knead bread. Yeast fearing? Fear no more. Not a fan of making bread because you don’t like kneading? This is the loaf for you. This no knead bread is merely a matter of mixing together 4 simple ingredients and giving it a stir. Yep. That’s it. Bread is born. Just sit back, relax and let the yeast do it’s thing. You’ll let it hang out for 12-18 hours and that’s that. Pop that baby in the oven and shortly after, the most beautiful loaf of bread you’ve ever seen will emerge from your oven.

This bread is a completely blank slate and will be incredible no matter how you choose to enjoy it. This is my go-to every day bread. A plain loaf will be soft, tender inside while being crisp and golden outside. Wonderful all on its own. Feeling a little adventurous? You could make my latest version. I added fragrant rosemary, bright lemon and nutty Gruyere cheese. Cheese and herbs are my favorite things to add another level of flavor to bread while the lemon zest adds a light spring flavor.
