04 Feb The best ever no knead artisan bread
Welcome to sandtondiet and to this week’s no knead artisan bread.
With life as busy as it is, it is great to have homemade food that is quick and easy. The preparation for this bread took under five minutes! It’s left to do its thing overnight. And when you wake up in the morning your dough is ready to use.
The beauty of this homemade no knead rustic bread is that it has no additives, no preservatives and you can control the amount of salt that you add. It also doesn’t have any salt.
Because it’s a no knead artisan bread the dough is very sticky and is not like dough that you knead.
Although this recipe really isn’t labour intensive at all it is worth the effort. This no knead artisan bread tastes just like that delicious bread that you are given in a restaurant.
Needless to say my house smelt gorgeous too! As soon as I try the wholewheat version of this bread I will let you know how it goes.
I hope that you enjoy this no knead artisan bread as much as we did.
Until next time, Leanne xoxo
