Fast No Knead Bread
Fast no knead bread, cooked from scratch in 3 hours!! & cooked on a skillet!
  • 13 ounces warm water
  • 1.5 tsp salt
  • 1.25 tsp instant yeast
  • 3.5 cups all purpose flour or bread flour ( I tested with both & both the flours work great!) plus extra for adding towards the end
  • Optional toppings ( I have baked with poppy seeds, flax seeds & both taste great)
  • Oil spray
  1. Take a glass bowl and heat it for a minute in microwave. To it add warm water, salt & yeast and simply stir using back of your spoon .
  2. Add flour and stir using back of you spoon both clockwise & counter clockwise direction until it all comes together.
  3. Cover and place in a warm place for 90 mins (1 hours & 30 mins). I like to keep it in turned off oven with light on.
  4. Now after 90 mins, stir it again using back of your spoon and add 1-2 tbsp of flour to make it little less sticky and stir. This is the time you can add any toppings if using. In this batch I added ¼ cups flax seeds. Add them and stir the dough around so it gets coated with flax seeds.
  5. Spray a cast iron skillet with some oil & transfer the dough to the skillet. Just simple slide it on to the skillet, don't worry if it looks all messed up.
  6. Cover and let it sit for 30 mins.
  7. Meanwhile heat your oven to 400F.
  8. After 30 mins, transfer the skillet to the oven and bake bread for 40 mins. Take it out and invert the skillet to take out the bread. Let it cool for 15-25 mins on a wire rack.
  9. After it's cooled, wrap it tightly in plastic wrap & enjoy!!
