This no-knead bread recipe is so easy. Plus, it always impresses guests

Table of Contents


3 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

1 1/2 cups warm water (approximately 110°F)



Prepare the Dough: In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and salt. Add the warm water and stir using a wooden spoon or spatula until you have a shaggy dough. The goal isn’t perfection in texture but rather ensuring all ingredients are combined.

First Rise: Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a clean kitchen towel. Let it sit at room temperature, away from drafts, for 12-18 hours. This slow rise is crucial for developing flavor and texture without the need for kneading.

Shape the Dough: After the rise, the dough will be bubbly and doubled in size. Place it on a lightly floured surface and gently shape it into a ball. Don’t worry about getting it perfectly smooth; a rustic look is part of its charm.
