NO KNEAD RECIPE
The high hydration of the dough makes it necessary to use a stand mixer. This means the mixer will do all the mixing and kneading for you.
"I followed the directions (except I didn’t have the right mixer blade and only one scraper) and they turned out BEAUTIFULLY! It’s almost (not really) a shame we’re using them to make croutons for the Thanksgiving dressing, but I have set a couple slices aside for my son’s work lunch. Can’t wait to try it again."
– user review
Flour, water, and yeast are mixed and left to sit for 12-24 hours. The longer you let the sponge sit, the more flavor and structure the final bread will have.
Mix the dough in a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. It will be sticky and loose.
Cover and let it rise for 45 minutes. Lightly grease a silicone scraper and use it to fold the dough over onto itself. Repeat.
