No Knead 4 Ingredient Bread


For many years I’ve desired to make my own bread on a regular basis.  When I do buy bread, I make sure it contains no high fructose corn syrup, but store bought bread still contains preservatives that are not a good thing to consume.  Making my own bread that uses just a handful of ingredients is so much better for my family than buying bread that has over 20 different things in the ingredient list!

I’ve tried several different kinds of bread recipes in the past, but had a hard time finding something that I could really stick to making on a regular basis.  So many bread recipes take a long time to make!  This meant that I only baked bread on a hit and miss schedule, and continued to purchase most of my bread.

And then I came across this No Knead Yeast Bread at Heavenly HomemakersI knew the first time I made it that it was a keeper.  No need to buy store-bought bread any longer!  This isn’t your typical loaf bread, but it’s delicious!  My family loves it!

One of the best things about this bread is that it takes me about 30 seconds to stir the ingredients together, there is no need to proof the yeast.  If I need bread the next day, I can quickly stir the ingredients before bed and bake the bread in the morning.  This is what I call convenient bread-making!


3 cups freshly milled flour {I use half whole wheat/half unbleached all-purpose}
1 3/4 tsp. sea salt
1/2 tsp. active rise yeast
1 1/2 cups water

Stir all ingredients together.  Cover the bowl with a towel and let the dough sit on the counter overnight.  In the morning, dump dough onto a floured surface and shape into a ball.  Let the dough sit for 30 minutes.

Preheat a dish {I use a 2 quart dish} in a 450° oven.

Place the dough in the hot dish.  Cover and bake 30-40 minutes.

This is seriously the easiest bread recipe. ever.  And it’s fool-proof.  If you have a hard time baking bread consistently, you must try this.  Or try it because it’s delicious!

Grain Mill Wagon Experience: For years I have desired to make my own flour, and have heard from several others that they preferred the WonderMill as their favorite. I was thrilled to participate in this challenge and discover for myself how simple the WonderMill is to use, clean and store. I am still amazed every time I see wheat berries or oat groats turn into beautiful flour in a matter of seconds! Through this challenge I have discovered that making my own flour saves money and is more nutritious for my family. I appreciate this opportunity and will be recommending the WonderMill for years to come.

    Looks good! Will it change the results any if one used store bought flour?

  2. Renee says:

    I make this same bread. If you can remember to start the dough the night before, or early in the morning and let it sit at room temp for 12-24 hours, the results are amazing! Way better flavor and texture. Because of the very low yeast content in the bread it really needs 12+ hours to proof.

    Thanks Jill I have started making more bread, and I will for sure be trying this recipe.

  4. Debbie says:

    We keep our temperatures at 65degrees at night. Is that warm enough for the yeast to rise?

  5. Sara says:

    Can you bake it in a regular bread tin?

  6. This looks awesome, Jill! I’m going to try it! You had me at “no knead”!
