No-Knead Bread


I had so much dough left after I made our homemade hot pockets that I had no idea what I should do. I wrapped it in a tight plastic bag and froze it immediately. Dough can last up to one week in the freezer. Yesterday, I pulled it out and let it defrost overnight in a large bowl.  By the morning the dough quadrupled in size. I punched it down, flipped it over and let it sit while I preheated the oven. The girls enjoyed waking up to the smell of fresh baked bread.



Allow the dough to sit, overnight is preferable. Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place Dutch oven (lid on) in hot oven and allow to heat for 30 minutes.  Place dough in hot Dutch oven (lid on), bake for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake for an additional 10-15 minutes.





Thank you so much for reading my blog, liking my Facebook page, following me on Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Pinterest. The out-pour of support has been wonderful. I enjoy sharing my food journal with you.  It’s a sad thing when someone is rude, mean or a jerk to you. But things could be much worse and you could be that person instead.

    That looks super tasty. A bit of butter and I am sure it would be heaven. I can just imagine waking to the scent of fresh baked bread. Better than coffee!

      The girls ate 1/2 with honey butter. I got 2 yays and 1 nays — Eden claimed she hated it!
