Lazy Bread ~ No knead, No rest, 1 rise, POUR into pan and bake...

April 23, 2009 - 8:55am -- Kizzle

Hi all!

I'm a semi-lousy cook on the best of days, so bread baking is truly pushing my personal skill level envelope...

I got started on this quest through Bittman's No-Knead bread and the NYT. It WORKED. It was just a bit bland, though...So, while searching the Web for No-Knead recipes, to see if I could add milk, or buttermilk, eggs, sugar, etc., I came across a recipe that was published in the "Bread Baker Bible," for Casserole Bread.

Kizzle from Colorado, and Coming of Age to Baking Bread...

Hello all!

I'm in my 50's and new to bread baking. My mom made YUMMY bread when I was little, with at least 2 punch downs (I always got to poke the bowl), but the one time I tried to make bread on my own, back in 1990, it came out hard as a rock, with a crust like plate steel. I decided to stick to store-bought...

While surfing the Web, looking for cookie recipes for cast iron baking pans, I tripped across the "No-Knead Bread" phenomenon from the NY Times. Having always believed that my one sorry attempt to make bread was tied to poor kneading, I was intrigued.
