I love bread. Bread with butter is even better! So I am always looking for a great recipe to make. As I have gotten older, I want not just a great recipe, I want something that is quick and easy to make. A couple of week ago, I did a some no knead rolls that turned out pretty good. They need some work though and I will repost on that when I get satisfactory results.
But I have a great find! I stumbled upon Alexandra’s Kitchen! It’s a great website with some recipes I know I will be trying. The first one that I just had to try out was a bread, of course! It was her mother’s ‘no knead peasant bread.” I loved it. Toothy with a good crumb. It didn’t go stale overnight. My husband like it as well. Check it out.
She has photos and videos on how to make. Really helpful.
Of course I reworked the recipe for my husband and I. I cut the amounts so that I only made one loaf at a time. After all, we can only eat so much before it goes stale. I used part whole wheat and threw in some toasted seeds. Check out her site though to find out how to do it!
- 11/2 cups all-purpose flour* (do not use bleached all-purpose)
- 1/2 cup whole flour
- 1 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon each of flax seed and sesame seed, toasted
- 1 tablespoon of sunflower seeds, toasted.
- 1 cups lukewarm water
- 1 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1 teaspoons active-dry yeast
- room temperature butter, about 2 tablespoons
Follow Alexandra’s direction for preparing and baking! This bread is really quick and easy. It took less than 3 hours to get on the table(I use rapid rise yeast). It would be something that I would use at dinner parties for the wow factor!
Right out of the oven!
