Easy No Knead Wheat Bread

No Knead Wheat Bread

If you are looking for an easy way to get fabulous homemade bread on your table for dinner this is a recipe for you! The preparation takes less than 10 minutes including the time it takes to mill your own flour in the Wondermill!  And if you have extra flour on hand you can have this mixed up in less than 5 minutes!  All you need is a big bowl to raise your dough and a Dutch Oven type heavy pan with a lid.

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 tsp active dry yeast

Using the Wondermill is super easy.  Just turn on the mill, fill the hopper with the wheat berries and watch them disappear quickly into fabulous whole grain flour collected in your holding canister.

For this recipe I selected the pastry flour setting because I wanted a fine flour.  This recipe would work just as well with coarse or bread flour.

In a large plastic or glass bowl add the wheat flour and the all purpose flour. Add the salt and the yeast and mix with a spoon.

 Add the water and stir until all the flour is incorporated.

Cover the bowl with a layer of plastic wrap. Cover with a towel or a non-airtight lid.

At this point the dough is done.

Leave it overnight or for the workday. It is fine to sit for 8-18 hours at room temperature.

After 8 hours the dough should look wet and bubbly, and the top should be flat.

When you are ready to bake place your lidded pan in the oven and preheat to 450˚F for 30 minutes.  Meanwhile on a piece of parchment or wax paper generously sprinkle some flour.  Transfer the dough from the bowl onto the flour.  Turn the dough to coat and lightly shape into a ball.  Cover with a damp towel while the oven and pan are heating.

*Note: There is no need to grease your pan

Carefully remove the pan from the oven and take off the lid.  Drop the dough into the hot pan.  Replace the lid and bake for 30 minutes.

After 30 minutes remove the lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes until the bread is beautifully browned and sounds hollow when tapped.

Remove the bread from the pan and cool for 5-10 minutes.

Slice and enjoy! Mine disappeared so quickly there was none left to take more pictures of… Consider doubling the recipe and making two loaves!
