I love breads. They are my downfall. Rolls, I can do without but bread … Especially when it’s fresh from the oven. How do you resist that? And let’s talk about Artisan Bread. It has a crunchy, solid exterior with a soft, chewy interior.
When Artisan Bread comes fresh out of the oven, it’s so absolutely delicious. The inside is so warm and perfect.
My mother-in-law was the one who introduced me to Artisan Bread. She made it almost every Sunday that we went to her house for dinner. It tastes so good and looks so amazing that I thought for sure it was going to be too hard to make, especially as I was new to cooking and my last breads had come out not so good.
Plus she explained how “easy” it was to make the bread. All you do is add in the ingredients, mix, let it sit for 18 hours, mix for a minute, wait for 2 hours, and then use a special pot to cook it in. The “special pot” was what always scared me. She explained how the whole thing needed to be hot and we needed to create an oven inside the oven. At the time, I hardly felt comfortable cooking a baking dish inside the oven so creating an oven inside an oven seemed like an impossible task.
But then one day my husband and I were at a store and we found a ceramic pot and decided to buy it and try her recipe. Our first attempt at the bread turned out better than we could have imagined and we haven’t looked back since. This bread recipe is incredibly simple and there’s no 5-minute kneading involved, in fact, there’s no kneading at all.
If you are looking for an easy, simple, 4-ingredient, no-knead bread, this is the one!
