Alexandra’s Mother’s Peasant No Knead Bread!

Posted on Updated on



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.


Peasant Bread Recipe


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!

    I recently made this no knead bread. When I got it out of the oven, it looked so yummy. I had been thinking about updating some of the photos on the earlier post. Here goes!
