5-Minute Artisan Bread (No Kneading)

By Danielle Nieman

Just 4 Ingredients + Honey

Step 1:

Add the yeast, salt, warm water, and honey to a large container and mix. Next, measure the flour and add to the large container. If you see some dry patches of flour and it’s getting hard to stir, wet your hands generously and gently press the dough mixture together, but be sure not to knead it. More details at the link.

Step 2:

 Follow rise time instructions at the link.

Step 3:

Place the ball-shaped dough (one pound) on the parchment paper or floured proofing basket. The dough that rests on the basket will be the top of the loaf. Let the dough sit in peace (room temperature, uncovered) for 40 minutes.

Step 4:

Dust the top with flour and make 1/2-inch deep slits across the dough with a sharp or serrated knife.

Step 5:

After 20 minutes, check the bread and remove the lid from the dutch oven if you used one. Continue to bake the bread for another 5 minutes. The crust should look golden brown and feel firm.

Serve warm with salted butter!
