No Knead Bread
I just tried my first attempt ever at a higher-hydration dough, and at not kneading all the CO2 out before shaping. Bwraith's discussion of adapting the NYT no-knead to sourdough seemed like a good one to try: http://www.thefreshloaf.com/node/4420/nyt-no-knead-sourdough-conversion I have a very healthy mature 100% hydration sourdough starter, just reinvigorated the previous night.
Hello fellow knead-less dutch oven bread enthusiasts! I've been enjoying this bread for almost a year now and rarely have trouble with it, except when our temps. here are in the 100's. Then it rises too fast, comes out flat, etc...Anyway, I've had a request for a wheat free version using buckwheat, spelt, quinoa, or other non-wheat flours. Have any of you baked this bread wheat free?
I have been a lurker on this site for several months and after baking 4 loaves of no knead bread, this is the most wonderful tasting bread I have ever baked, and I would like to reaffirm my skills. I am a meer novice at this bread baking business. the only reason I took up the past time was . I got a bread machine for xmas, and used it twice.
I spent a few years in Fontainbleau, France and loved the bread. i try a lot of the different receipes you folks post and some turn out and some don't. keep up the good work, you folks are a tribute to the baking world.
