No Knead Bread - So easy a 2 year old...

...can do it :-)

3 cups of flour
1/4 tsp dry yeast
1 tsp salt
1.5 cups of warm water

Mix the dry ingredients together, add water and twirl once with a spoon to combine (or with a tiny hand).

Let sit for ~15-20 hrs. Fold the dough over itself on a floured surface and place on a floured tea towel for 2 hours. Half hour before baking, heat a cast iron pot with the lid in the oven at 450. Place the dough into the HOT (the 2 yrs old was napping at the time) pot and cover with lid. Place back in the oven for 30 minutes, remove the lid at that point and bake another 15-20 to get the nice rustic crust.

There are many different, yet very simple versions of this recipe (I highly recommend to check them out) and mostly lack of work = longer rising time to get the awesome, ciabatta like center with crispy crust worthy of our the last vacation!
