A No Knead Bread Recipe

I can't take credit for one single iota of this post as I didn't invent the recipe and I didn't even find it on the internet.  Mr. FT did the legwork for this one.
But I did make it cuz it's pretty much foolproof.

So here it is... a no knead recipe, which we must give credit where credit is due!  You can find the complete instructions and recipe at
Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery

3 cups flour
1 1/2 cups water (I used 1 3/4)
1/4 tsp yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt
olive oil for coating (I used canola)
extra flour, wheat bran, or cornmeal for dusting

 No sugar....weird hey
 So check out his recipe for "the how to" as he will explain it so much better than I ever could,
 plus I am too lazy to type it all out.

Dough all covered in plastic doing its thing

Getting it ready for its final rise

One thing I did different  on the advice of Mr. FT was oil a dinner plate really well and rest the dough on the plate with a tea towel lightly covering it.  Just make sure you put flour on the top of your dough    I tried Jim Lahey's towel method and the dough just stuck to it no matter how much flour I used....don't ask me why. 

This was a different loaf of bread I made.  I cut slits in the top to make kinda fancy but it got eaten before I had a chance to take pics.

Can't you picture the spinach dip inside??
