There is nothing better than waking up to the smell of freshly made bread. This recipe was adapted from https://cooking.nytimes.com/ for their No-Knead Bread. It's an easy quick recipe and the only thing is you have to wait nearly 24 hours for the dough to rise. So, this recipe needs to be prepped the day prior to serving. I adapted the recipe by adding fresh rosemary, wildflower honey, and Maldon flaky salt for garnish. I found the crust crunchy and the inside soft and chewy. Add some butter and you're all set. I've also experimented by adding sliced olives and other herbs. You can fold in pretty much anything you want to the dough and it works out well.

    Could I use sugar instead of honey? I'm allergic to honey or any kind. I use sugar in my other no knead recipes

      Hi, I might recommend using maple syrup, agave syrup or date paste as a substitute. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

  • Solid recipe! Love experimenting with spin offs of some of the original recipes. This one looks really easy! My bubble buddies have a penchant for dill, parsley, rosemary and thyme, preferable French thyme. I grow all of them and when I make bread for them will give this recipe a try. Thank you so much for sharing!
