You may need 1-2 extra tablespoons of water depending on the flour. Whole wheat flour absorbs more water and is a better choice than white flour, which may need 2-3 tablespoons less water.
Choose a pot or a Dutch oven with oven safe handles.
Your pot should have enough space because the bread will puff up about 1cm or 1/2inch.
This recipe is for 1 small bread 12x8cm approximately.
Always be careful and use oven gloves when baking.
You work with the dough for a few minutes, the rest of the time you just wait. You need to let the dough rest for 3 hours and you bake the bread for about 50′.
If the water you used was cold instead of warm, it may need more time to puff up.
You can let the dough rest for more than 3 hours if you want.
If you wish your bread to be more crusty, more golden brown, let it bake for 5-10 more minutes.
You can make this bread with the flour of your choice or even with all purpose flour and you can add whatever you like to your bread: olive oil, your favorite nuts. I took photos of several kinds of breads I made, white, whole wheat, with nuts and seeds.
This No Knead Bread recipe will work because this recipe is extremely forgiving!
