Recipe Review - Easy No Knead Bread

Deep South Dish

           I enjoyed making this bread. It tastes incredible as toast! 

Ingredients: Milk, Water, Oil, Sugar, Bread Flour, Salt, Rapid Rise Yeast

Heat milk and water, then set aside to cool.

Sift flour into large bowl.

Add part of the sugar and all of salt 
(resembles the sand on our beach!)

In a small bowl, combine yeast and reserved sugar.

Heat water to between 110 and 115 degrees F. and add warm water to yeast and sugar.

Stir yeast mixture. Let stand for 10 minutes.

This is what is will look like after 10 minutes...puffy. If not puffy, the yeast is dead (or your water was too warm or too cold).

Add cooled milk mixture to flour mixture.

Add yeast mixture to flour and milk mixture.

Add oil to this mixture.

Stir until sticky dough forms.

Cover with plastic wrap.

Cover with clean dishtowel, then place in oven to rise.

Here is the risen dough.

Once dough has doubled in size (approximately 1 hour), gently deflate.

Grease a dutch oven. Isn't she pretty?

Place dough in greased dutch oven.

Let rise again (approximately 30 minutes) until doubled in size (the dough...not the picture!)

Bake in oven for 25 to 30 minutes. 

Cool on wire rack, then slice.

Here it is...begging for butter and jam!
