I was asked to bring bread to a pot luck, and luckily, i had just started a batch of the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day the night before. With this method, take 6 ½ cups of flour, water, yeast, salt and put it in a large container. You let it rise for a few hours then put it in the fridge.
I've fine tuned my Artisan Bread Recipe link here making it a hybrid of the No Knead Bread Recipe and the Artisan Bread Recipe. I lifted out a hunk of the dough from the fridge, formed it into a ball on parchment paper, and baked it in dutch oven.
I also make slashes across the top of the dough to make those cool lines . You can see how we make the slashes in our No Knead Bread Artisan Bread video here.
The bread comes out great! I look like I know what I am doing, and its real easy to do.
This loaf has a small amount of rye flour mixed into the dough, and it has a nice hint of rye in each slice.
