Inhale deeply and maybe you'll smell what I am smelling in our home! What's one to do on a chilly Saturday morning? Bake bread to go along with that grilled steak you'll be having later in the day of course! ;)
My morning started out with getting around to take Fritz, our dog, to the vet for his shots. Thinking ahead to dinner and steaks on the grill I thought some homemade bread sounded like it would be good with it. Well since I woke up at 3:30 this morning and couldn't get back to sleep my energy level was low. So I decided to make "Simple Crusty No Knead Bread". from the book “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day,” by Jeff Hertzberg and Zoë François
You can view the video below, it will show you how easy it is to make this bread. It is so SIMPLE. We love this bread. I use the recipe to make small buns with also. YUM!
A simple Google will provide you with the recipe. I highly recommend buying the book. There are so many good recipes in it. I purchased the cookbook “Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day: the Discovery That Revolutionizes Home Baking” from Alibris for $16.75 (normally $27.95 new). This was being listed as “Like New” condition. I figured once I got it in my kitchen once it would be ‘used’ anyways ;) I’ve ordered used books before from Alibris and have always received excellent books. And as always it came in excellent condition.
Our bread.....soon to be part of our dinner. ;)
I have found that the crust will soften a tad when cooled. I just pop the loaf back in the oven for a few minutes on low heat to crisp it up.
I'm ready for dinner! ;)
