Easy Whole Grain No Knead Bread

Whole Grain No Knead Bread

Bread always tastes best when it is homemade, but so many bread recipes are very complicated and take a lot of work. Not this one! This bread only needs 4 ingredients and no kneading at all. It’s so easy anyone can make it, especially when you have the Wonder Mill to make your own flour.

No Knead Bread

Four ingredients: spelt flour, yeast, salt, and water

Recipe type: Bread
 
Ingredients
  • 1050g (37.0377oz) freshly ground whole grain spelt flour (wheat or other grains work too)
  • ½ teaspoon SAF instant yeast
  • 1 heaped tablespoon coarse salt (if using fine salt, don't heap the tablespoon)
  • 4 cups water (cold or room temperature)
Instructions
  1. Mix dry ingredients together in a big bowl.
  2. Add 4 cups of water and mix well, you do not have to knead it but you can mix it with your hands if you would like, it's fun. :)
  3. Cover with plastic (so it does not dry out) and leave for 12 – 16 hours at room temperature.
  4. Forming the loaves: Put a bit of oil and gently place the dough on a clean surface, do not disturb the texture too much.
  5. Spread it out a bit and fold it so it fits into the baking form. I usually fold it twice and than roll it to a loaf. Sprinkle it with seeds if so desired. Let it rise for 1 hour.
  6. This recipe makes two loaves of bread.
  7. Place the loaves in a cold oven, turn on the heat 400 F and set the timer for 1 hour.
  8. Enjoy your fresh bread!
