Baking your own bread seems difficult, but after a minor investigation here at home and on the internet I came up with a recipe for bread that you don’t even have to knead. Oh well, only ten times, which is next to nothing. The result is amazing! the only thing you need is a little bit of patience. > preparing in the evening and baking the next day. The bread is baked in a heavy heat-resistant pan placed in the oven. Professional ovens are fitted with steam generators, which is why professionally baked bread has such a great crust. We have achieved the same effect. By making the oven smaller - baking the bread in a heavy pot. The hot moist air remains and the bread comes out of the oven perfectly. I will explain in a few steps: (recipe).

  • Prepare all Ingredients.

  • In a bowl, immediately combine >

  • Into a Ball.

  • Cover with plastic wrap and set aside for 8 to 18 hours.

  • After some 12 hours this is what it looks like at our house!

  • Dust the countertop with flour and remove the ball from the bowl.

  • Knead the dough exactly 10 times.

  • Mould into a nice ball or oval shape.

  • Place the ball on a plate on a large sheet of baking paper.

  • Loosely cover with plastic wrap and leave to stand for 2 more hours.

  • Sprinkle with a little flour and score the top.

  • Place a heavy pot in the oven and preheat the oven with the pot to 190C (375F/Gas 5). Carefully lift the baking paper with the dough on it, place it in the pot and cover immediately.

  • Lower the temperature to 175C (340F/Gas 4) and bake the bread for 30 minutes. Remove the lid from the pot and bake for another 20 minutes, approximately.

  • Congrats! the bread turned out well! that was no trouble at all!
