Edited from earlier post- sorry for any confusion!

Baby T and I have headed to my parents’ house early for the Christmas holiday so his nanna and grandpa could spend some quality time with him. Husband M will be joining us later this week- presumably well rested after a few baby-free night! Last night, my mom, sister M, and I enjoyed a ladies night in meal- soup, salad, and delicious artisan bread! The bread was so crusty and tasty- I loved it.

My mom’s decorator had shared this no-knead artisan bread with her and had told her how easy it was to make. After a little more research and experimenting, my mom has come up with the following recipe:

No-Knead Artisan Bread:

-1/4 tsp yeast
-1 and a 1/2 cup warm water
-3 cups flour
-1 and 1/2 tsp salt

Combine the yeast and warm water. In a separate bowl, mix the flour and salt together. Add the yeast and water mixture to the flour mixture and combine. Cover with a dish towel and leave in bowl. Place the bowl in the oven (not on) or a warm place for 6-12 hours.

Take bowl out and preheat oven to 425 degrees,  as well as an enamel cast iron steel pan (such as Le Creuset). Once hot, toss in a small amount of flour to coat the pan then quickly throw in the dough.  Toss a little extra flour on top of the dough.

Re-cover dough immediately with the pot cover and put in oven. Leave cover on for 30-40 minutes depending on how crispy you would like the bread (the less you keep the cover on, the more crispy it will be. Bake for a total of 45 minutes. Remove the pan from oven, take bread out of pan, and put bread on cooling rack. Wait 30 minutes before slicing. Delicious served with olive oil!

I will definitely be trying this out at my house soon. This is one of those recipes that could easily be made on a work day as well if you did the first few steps in the morning and allowed the bread to rise while you were at work. I am looking forward to a week of delicious meals and hope to share some additional recipes soon!
