I have news for you, waste of time. If you eat wheat bread you're going to make yourself lose money/nutrients/health.

Wheat contains gluten, gluten impairs the body's ability to absorb nutrients.

Try using Quinoa, Almond, Amaranth, or Rice Flour, anything NON-GMO, and wheat free.

Re: make chewy crusty artisan BREAD with 5 minutes of your time! seriously! and cheap!


1st off, this started on NY times a few years back.
a completely new way to make bread with NO KNEADING.
if you love those round crusty french bread types of artisian breads, hot out of the oven and you have no time.
THIS is a recipe for you!

here is the recipe from the nyt:
[link to www.nytimes.com]

above is a video on how to make it.

i have experimented with very many versions of this bread and it's practically impossible to screw it up and i have even simplified it from the nyt one.

all you will need is a dutch oven (like a big 4 quart metal pot you make stew in)

get a bowl. throw in 3 cups of flour
1 3/4ths cup of warm water
1/4 tsp yeast
1 1/4ths tsp salt

mix that all up with your hands. do it fast you don't need to be perfect about it.
cover the bowl with saran wrap!
that's it then.

let it sit somewhere warmish for around 24 hours. it really doesn't matter too much if it's 18 hours or 23 hours. just somewhere in there. i like to do 24 because it's easy to remember.

the next day, preheat your oven to 450 F. with the pot IN the oven heating with it. this is an important step because when you pour your dough into the pot then it kind of seals it immediately and stops it from sticking.

you will need then something else to stop the bread from sticking to the pan. so throw in at the bottom of the pan in a good covered layer some corn meal, or oatmeal, or muesli, or any course type grain you want on your bread. sesame seeds, poppy seeds whatever.

take the HOT pot out of the oven and with a spatula just get the dough from the bowl (that's been sitting around for a day bubbling with yeasty tasty goodness) in there fast. don't make a big ordeal about it. don't worry if it's shaped funny, it will all even out when it cooks.

bake it with the lid on for 45 minutes
then take lid off and bake another 10 or 15.

that's it. it's should pop straight out of your pot onto the counter to cool!

+++

i have made variations of this recipe where i added cocoa powder and sugar (it's not like a chocolate muffin but more like a biscotti)

i have made a variation where i added raisins, cinnamon and molasses

i have made one where i have throwin in almonds and sesame seeds and dried ruit like figs or dates.
or sometimes just mixed nuts.

i have substituted flour with cream of wheat!
i have done it with a sourdough starter.

you can do 1/2 wheat and half corn flour
or 1/2 wheat and some rye.
anything goes!

just mix it up, let it sit, and bake.
voila.

it's the best thing ever for when you're bugging out to bake some fresh bread. very grounding, comforting, simple, CHEAP, and delicious.

i imagine you could also make this on a campfire or brick oven if if TSHTF.

this recipe makes me so happy, and i hope it will make you happy too!

if you find a new variation on how to make it let me know!

now go do it. right now! :)

wtf...."wait 24 hours"???...I wanted that shit NOW!
 Quoting: SHR


There are nine pages of replies to this original post and I am sure someone else has said this (or I at least hope so ). the whole issue with bread wheat gluten issues is because everyone "WANTS IT RIGHT NOW".um-Kay.... commercialized yeast was a dietary mistake. in order to make wheat breads digestable you HAVE TO KNEAD IT. if you do not obese the dough to window paning you are not making incomplete proteins available for probiotics in non commercial yeasts (sourdough ... which is fermented probiotic like yogurt ) . it's these incomplete proteins that cause all thi gluten intolerance stuff. the fact that all out food is rushed. I only believe this bread works UN kneaded because you are essentially creating and then baking a full sour. there is NO Rushing good crust and crumb.

Research sourdough . and the benfits of a long knead time. you will learn that it is not the wheat or the gluten that bothers you. rather it is our quick commercial way of making bread products and grain products. fast does not equal better

I dont know if Australian flour is differnt to yours but when I dumped my dough out onto the bench before putting it in the oven it seemed waywaywaywaywayway too wet and almost runny.
I folded it a couple of times with flour wich made me able to actually pick it up and put it in my hot pot. I will let you know how it turns out.

Flour holds humidity. it makes it wet. on humid days you will need more on dry days less. always 'fluff' your flour first as it compact.

OP you forgot to add these WARNINGS LOL

It is so good you will eat too much and get fat.

You will not be able to go back to store bread.

You will buy much more real butter.

Your neighbors will smell it cooking and stop by more often.

Your family members will start to expect some to take home.

You will start to neglect other food groups.

You will pass up happy hr. for a piece of toast.

I didn't say you can live forever eating gluten-free, ass. I know you don't give a shit about the vessel you live in, it's obvious by your attitude and your denial.

Yes I want to live to 100 or longer, no I will not live out those last 20 years as you THINK. LIKE YOU WILL (FOR YOU and other people like you, last 20 years WILL SUCK CAUSE YOU DIDN'T TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF NOW)

You have a preconceived notion, that you make excuses for.

Your family didn't eat GMO-wheat. And lots of people died from poor diets in their 30s-40s back in the day for just eating pork and beans, never seeing a green vegetable in their life.

You eating GMO-wheat bread does not equal to you living long , just cause.

And this wasn't my concern, you living long...

My concern was that this is a waste of time to learn to make gluten bread, why deplete your body of nutrients? 80-100 years ago, there were not as many toxins as there is today, so your logic is flawed.

Hey Pink Cat. Thanks for the recipe! I just finished putting the dough aside and can't wait to cook it tomorrow. I even went out and bought a dutch oven today!

I think it is hilarious how a bread thread can make some people argue, hahahaha. Nutritional "news" changes all the time, so....

Next time I make it I am going to try 1/2 quinoa, 1/2 organic whole wheat which I grind myself. Have you done this combination? It would cut the gluten obviously and might be more friendly to gluten intolerant peeps. But Idk, it looks absolutely delicious and my husband can not wait to try it!

Thank you! Have a good day!hf

i have made one where i have throwin in almonds and sesame seeds and dried ruit like figs or dates.
or sometimes just mixed nuts.

i have substituted flour with cream of wheat!
i have done it with a sourdough starter.

you can do 1/2 wheat and half corn flour
or 1/2 wheat and some rye.
anything goes!

just mix it up, let it sit, and bake.
voila.

it's the best thing ever for when you're bugging out to bake some fresh bread. very grounding, comforting, simple, CHEAP, and delicious.

i imagine you could also make this on a campfire or brick oven if if TSHTF.

this recipe makes me so happy, and i hope it will make you happy too!

if you find a new variation on how to make it let me know!

now go do it. right now! :)

You are so awesome...I just made my first loaf of rosemary/parmesan and it is amazing! Olive bread is happening next...can't believe I used to pay $5/loaf for this!!!!! I didn't fold it properly so it looks like a giant ass, but still tastes sublime!

Thread: GLP: The Grain Mill of Wake Forest could use your help between now and 30Jan12

too bad. i'm always on the lookout for a good place to buy whole grains. i'll be sure to not be buying from you or telling the tens of thousands of people on my mailing list about your products.
way to go.
must be pleasant to work for you.
