No-Knead Bread Recipe
(makes 2, 2lb loaf tins)
9 cups plain or bread flour
4½ cups hand-hot water
1 tsp sugar
Pour 9 cups of flour into a bowl.
Add salt and stir in.
In a separate bowl, whisk 4½ cups of hand-hot water with 1 tsp sugar and 2 tsp dried yeast. Once the yeast is activated the mixture should look a little frothy.
Pour the yeast mixture into the bowl of flour and mix together thoroughly.
Once mixed and combined to form a sloppy dough, cover with clingfilm and place in fridge overnight.
Remove dough from fridge and divide between two greased loaf tins. Alternatively, break off the amount needed for a particular sized loaf you want and shape directly onto greased tray.
Score the top of the dough with a sharp knife and leave to rise for an hour or so. In the meantime pre-heat the oven to 180°C. (Click for oven temperature conversions).
After an hour place in oven to bake for approximately 35-45 minutes. Remove when base of bread sounds hollow when tapped and cool on a wire rack, or eat whilst still warm!
