NO - KNEAD BREAD & HANDMADE BUTTER

Bread-Butter-Flour I love baking bread and this happens to be the first bread recipe I baked. I'm sure you would agree there is nothing better then bread right out of the oven with a perfect crust, topped with homemade butter. I first saw this recipe featured in the New York Times website.  Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery shared his recipe on how to achieve artisan bread with his no knead method. This recipe is simple but it does require the dough to rest for at least 12 hours. I usually prepare the dough in the evening then let it rest overnight. The following morning I shape the dough and store it in the refrigerator. By evening the  bread dough is ready to be baked just in time for dinner. With this recipe you can use other ingredients such as whole wheat flour, walnuts, olives or even sun dried tomatoes.Don't forget the butter! All you need is heavy cream, some salt and a large mason jar. Bread-Butter-Dough Bread-Butter-Dutch-Oven

If you enjoy baking bread, I recommend you read Tartine Bread by Chad Robertson.This is definitely one of my favorite cookbooks. In his book you will learn step by step how to create your own bread starter like the one created in Tartine Bakery in San Francisco. This recipe is a lot more advanced then this no - knead method but you will love the results.

Jim Lahey’s  No - Knead Bread Recipe 


Ingredients


1 cup heavy cream (minimum) 

Salt

Directions

1. Fill the jar with heavy cream about half way. Secure lid and shake for several minutes. 

2. The heavy cream will become the texture of whip cream. Continue shaking until a ball begins to form and liquid separates. 

3. Remove the liquid and squeeze out any remaining liquid from the butter ball.

4. Add salt to taste and refrigerate. Enjoy!

  3. I've just had an experiment with sourdough bread; it turned out pretty nice, though, not perfect. And since I have made a lot of sourdough starter (just to be on the safe side for the various mistakes and mishaps), I am really thinking about Tartine bread right now. It tempts me so much!
    But before that, I think I have to give a try to this no-knead bread. It looks fabulous!

    1. Hi Migle! Yes try this bread I think you will love the results no starter or really much planning needed. I really love Tartine Bread cookbook. Their starter is made with whole wheat flour it takes about two weeks of feeding for it to be ready but the results are amazing! In the cookbook they have other great recipes you will enjoy as well.

    1. The link above is to the NY Times article with step by step instructions and video how to bake the bread. It's 500 degrees in a dutch oven for 20 minutes with the lid and 20 minutes without the lid.
