Parchment Paper Tutorial - No-Knead Bread

April 1, 2009 - 7:56pm -- JoeV

I posted this tutorail on another food site before they banned me from the site (no sense of humor...their loss. LOL), so rather than give the link to that site I figured some of the newer artisan bakers could benefit from this tutorial, especially if they are having difficulty working with wet dough. Hopefully many will benefit from the dialog and the pictures.

Are the Gods of Sourdough Aganst Me?

July 14, 2008 - 6:30am -- phxdog

Creating a sourdough loaf at home like the ones I enjoyed  from my days in San Francisco in the late 60's has been an on-going quest for me. A couple of weeks ago, I searched the forum and found a great recipe for no-knead sourdough bread. I've tried it a couple of times with decent results, but not exactly what I was after.

This last weekend I made another stab at it. Like so many of us, I always seem to 'freelance' a bit with recipes . . . adding or modifying a few ingredients here and there. Maybe that's why I have not completed my quest for the perfect sourdough!

Yeast-risen cornmeal bread (no-knead)

March 3, 2008 - 6:42pm -- krusty

For those familiar with the no-knead method, here's a recipe that I formulated and tried last week.  The result surpassed my expectations. 

For one loaf:

250 grams unbleached white flour

100 grams fine-ground cornmeal

2 tsps (10 grams) vital wheat gluten

275 grams water

1/2 tsp instant yeast

1 tsp sea salt

New no-knead book -- anyone read it?

December 7, 2007 - 11:14am -- JMonkey

I stumbled upon the following article in the NY Times on a new book called, Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day.

From the looks of it, it seems that the author takes a master recipe in which a wet dough is mixed, but not kneaded, and then popped in the fridge overnight, and then adds a lot of variations to create different breads.

boat bread help?

April 19, 2007 - 3:49pm -- bwraith

I'm doing a semi-WW "boat bread", kind of like a couple of SD w/fair amount of whole grain posts I've seen. I'm going sailing up toward Block Island this weekend, and for the first time will try to bake on board a sailboat. The oven may be anemic, but I hope it's hot enough so I can just bake long and slow, I guess.

NYT no knead first timer

I have been dying to make this bread. Unfortunately i did not have the right kind of pot to cook it in. or even something close. So i figured one of these days i would find one on sale or something. yeaterday a lady at church wanted to get rid of her lovely pot for the oven. its metal with a lid and was perfect!


so of course i came right home and got the dough together.


fast forward to today and I just took it out of the oven. And its CRACKlLING loudly as it cools. I have never made bread crackle! I am so excited!

I have seen a number of amazing photos and comments of how great the bread is. I would like to try it.

If someone can point me in the right direct to the recipe I would greatly appreciate it. And any tips from any experience with the recipe also.
