Most people I know (my past self included) take a step back when you talk to them about making their own doughs. Bread, pie, croissants (actually, there are good reasons to think twice before embarking on this journey), pizza, cinnamon rolls and so on. I get it, working with yeast it’s intimidating. A small mistake, like the wrong water temperature, can ruin your whole batch and your whole evening. It seems like too much math for a relaxing night of baking, right?
Well, it is until it isn’t. Once you understand how yeast works, why it works and why it doesn’t, everything aligns and a whole new world of baking adventures awaits! I’m not going to get into details about baking with yeast, because smarter people than me already written about it (here’s a nice guide, by the way), but I strongly encourage you to take some time and read about it.
Today I’m going to give you the recipe for the easiest bread there is! If you’re thinking about trying to make your own bread but feel intimidated, this is the perfect recipe to begin your new adventure with. This is a no-knead bread, meaning you don’t need a stand mixer for it and you also don’t need to get your arms sore for this bread! You basically just mix the ingredients and let the magic happen. The hardest thing about this recipe is the waiting time.
