Really easy no knead bread , i have been making for years in the oven , works to perfection on the egg!!!
3 cups bread flour (I used all-purpose with excellent results)
1 packet (1/4 ounce) instant yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Oil as needed

Combine flour, yeast and salt in a large bowl. Add 1 1/2 cups water and stir until blended; dough will be shaggy. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest about 4 hours at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.

Lightly oil a work surface and place dough on it; fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes more.

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, ) in oven or egg ( i do it right on the pizza stone with cornmeal) as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Slide your hand under dough and put it into pot, seam side up. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes.

    Looks great Chef!

    How much snow did you get in your part of New Jersey? In my area near Cherry Hill we had snow early on but it quickly turned to rain.
  • that is 2 stones the first couple times the bottom was a little to dark, iguess you can us the green egg feet to elevate the stone off the setter, but i had the second stone and it worked so i stuck with it.
  • i am up in vernon, by mountain creek , and we got about 7 inches, i could take it or leave it at this point.

    chef, that looks great, I have had nothing but miserable results trying to bake bread, I want to try this one. By the way, don't let bubba tim catch you doing this :lol: - I am outside of Philly & that storm went just north of us, we got a little freezing rain, enough to make this morning's walk a little sketchy, but avoided the worst of it

  • i dont understand why will bubba tim be angry?
  • ZippylipZippylip Posts: 4,700
    bubba feels as though real men don't bake, however, we suspect that he is actually a closet baker, perhaps even a pastry chef hidden in a unshaven "I only smoke meat & drink beer" body, we're looking in to it :laugh: . Every now & then, bubba lets the real bubba shine through however, & he is capable of some pretty nice stuff, search 'bubbacakes' & you can view a picture of a very nice piece of his work

  • you tell bubba theres nothing better then making your own pulled pork, your own sauce, slaw, and roll ,to build you sandwich . if my wife wouldnt laugh at me, i would take the ceramics class to make my own plates!!! enjoy your Day!

    I like the way you think, must be the proximity to the same latitude we share (although I don't know where Vernon is, anywhere in Jersey is pretty close)

    Great pics! I do No Knead as well. Question. In the pic it is just sitting on the platesetter, no pot. Is that to brown or just for pic? Inquiring minds want to learn something! :woohoo:
  • its the placesetter, with 2 pizza stones on it. i have done it with 1 stone raised off the setter, with the green egg feet, but i like the crust this way the best. the cast iron pot works 2 but i like it this way with no pot, it just lets more dough be exposed to the egg not the cast iron. on 1 pizza stone by the time it way done the bottom was 2 dark for me.

    The bread looks great! Do you have both pizza stones in the egg to warm up, or do you add the bread on the pizza stone at the same time?
  • i preheat the stones with the egg
