No Knead Dutch Oven Bread

Updated: Mar 28, 2023


Is there any greater smell in your home than fresh homemade bread? If you haven't experienced this, my no knead dutch oven bread is for you. This recipe requires no kneading, no starter, no special equipment {other than a cast iron pot}, and little knowledge of bread making. Really it only requires a few minutes of actual hands on time working with the dough. Bonus... its pretty forgiving too.

The loaf has a rustic outside that is not chewy, and an airy, moist and sponge-like interior. A perfect home baked bread that pairs well with soups, can be used for sandwiches, served solo slathered with butter or after a few days, can be transformed into the tastiest croutons.


Lets get started:


First dissolve the honey in some water and sprinkle the yeast. Let set 5 minutes until foaming. Mix in the flour and salt until its a shaggy dough. I needed to add another 1/4 cup flour to this as it was still too wet.


Cover and let rise in a warm place. I turn my oven on for only a couple minutes to get it warm, then place the dough in there to rise.


Tip the dough out on a floured surface. Work your way around the dough bringing the dough up to form a ball. Then I fold in half a couple times. Place the dough, seam side up in a banneton or towel lined bowl. Let rise 20-30 minutes, until its not quite doubled.






Flip the dough out onto some parchment paper and gently lift it into your warm dutch oven. Place the lid on and bake for 30 minutes. Remove lid and bake another 10 minutes.





Look at that crusty top!


And the airy center! At this point your home smells heavenly.


Dip in some olive oil, herbs, and parmesan cheese.
