Default No knead, slow rise bread. (with video)

I heard this on the radio today, and did some digging. I plan on doing this over the weekend.


Quote:
Recipe: No-Knead Bread
Adapted from Jim Lahey, Sullivan Street Bakery
Time: About 1½ hours plus 14 to 20 hours’ rising

3 cups all-purpose or bread flour, more for dusting
¼ teaspoon instant yeast
1¼ teaspoons salt
Cornmeal or wheat bran as needed.

1. In a large bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Add 1 5/8 cups water, and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy and sticky. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest at least 12 hours, preferably about 18, at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.

2. Dough is ready when its surface is dotted with bubbles. Lightly flour a work surface and place dough on it; sprinkle it with a little more flour and fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest about 15 minutes.

3. Using just enough flour to keep dough from sticking to work surface or to your fingers, gently and quickly shape dough into a ball. Generously coat a cotton towel (not terry cloth) with flour, wheat bran or cornmeal; put dough seam side down on towel and dust with more flour, bran or cornmeal. Cover with another cotton towel and let rise for about 2 hours. When it is ready, dough will be more than double in size and will not readily spring back when poked with a finger.

4. At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under towel and turn dough over into pot, seam side up; it may look like a mess, but that is O.K. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes. Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack.

Yield: One 1½-pound loaf.

Wow! I'm impressed by that. Thanks for sharing, Revvy - I'm going to give that a go right now...

[EDIT] That was a piece of piss - the dough's done. If I hadn't had to work out how many grams and millilitres there are in a cup, it would have taken maybe a minute from start to finish. And that's tomorrow evening's dinner sorted.

You know, Google is great for quick conversions... you just type in an equation and you'll get the answer... for example

".25 cups=? milliliters" give me this answer; ".25 US cups = 59.1470591 milliliters"

Ah, that looks a far quicker way of doing it than my shambolic approach. I couldn't figure out how to tell Google whether I wanted cups to be converted to weight or to volume. Now I know.

Having sat overnight, the dough looks ready to go now - it has risen nicely, and is dotted with little bubbles. I'm going to give it another eight hours and bake it this evening.

I baked the bread last night and I'm eating some now with a ripe brie. I have to say, I'm impressed - the crust is terrific, and the bread has a fantastically airy structure. And it was SO ridiculously easy to make. This would be a really easy way to impress someone.

The only criticism from me is that the dough I ended up with was a little too liquid, to the point that it couldn't be folded. I had to add extra flour at the end to make it manageable, and by doing that I lost a little of the aeration from the 18-hour waiting period. Next time I'll add a little less liquid.

But still, the easiness-to-awesomeness ratio on this recipe is off the charts. Thanks again for sharing, Revvy!
