No-knead bread recipe

There are few things as satisfying in baking as making your own bread, but imagine a no-knead bread. It is a more intimidating dish in comparison with how trivially easy it is to find. Usually, the bread is pretty labor intensive and requires quite some intensive kneading, unless you have a dough machine.

But how about a great recipe that requires just mixing the ingredients together and wait? Totally possible, based on a Jenny Can Cook recipe.

Servings: 6-8
Preparation time: 5 min + 5 min forming the buns
Proofing time: 3 hours
Baking time: 25 min


  • 320 g of all purpose or bread flour
  • 1/4 tsp of dried yeast/9  g of fresh yeast
  • 1 tsp of salt
  • 290 g of hot water (54 C)


  1. Mix the flour, yeast and salt.
  2. Add the hot water and mix well until combined (1 min). It will look very soft, that is normal.
  3. Cover the bowl with a plastic wrap and let it rest on the counter for 3 hours.
  4. Now comes the tricky part: the dough is very sticky so for assembling it you will need a lot of flour – divide it in 6-8 rolls, depending on how big you want it.
  5. Using lots of flour on your hand, shape it in a ball shape and place it on the tray with baking paper.
  6. Let the balls proof for 15 more min.
  7. Bake it at 230 C for 25 min and there you go.
  8. If you want even less work, you can try the round version, which works just as well:
  9. You can serve it hot, though it seems to me that letting it cool down makes it less moist inside and gets a crust a bit softer.
