As promised on another thread here is the method I have been working on for a true no knead bread. I wanted a more dense moist bread than the Lahey/Bittman bread and I didn't want to wait hours on end for a second rise.
As much as I like the Lahey bread I wanted more for less. Call me a greedy CH if you like!
I wanted an easy bread to serve with the basil and maters coming out of my garden.
Perfect for dipping in a caprese salad.
I start with;
3 Cups King Arthur bread flour
2 Cups King Arthur AP flour
2 1/4 ounce packages of quick rise yeast
1 teaspoon fine sea salt
1/2 teaspoon sugar
Combine all dry ingredients and hand mix.
1/4 cup EVOO
3 1/4 cups warm water.
Cover container with lid or plastic wrap and place in fridge for 24 hours.
Dough will double in size.
