The Easiest No-Knead Rustic White Bread

3 Cups flour
1 1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Instant Yeast*
1 1/3 cup Water (cool)

Making the dough:
Mix flour, salt and yeast together in mixer. Add cool water (leave about 2 cups of water aside and add small amounts if needed.) Mix until dough is fully mixed into a ball-should be soft but not sticky. Place in an airtight container that’s twice the size (to allow for rising). Let sit for 12-18 hours.

Shaping the dough:
Scrape dough out the container onto a floured surface. Shape the dough by pulling the dough into the center to create a ball shape. Make sure all seams of the dough are on the bottom and the dough is shaped tight. Place dough on floured parchment and let rise for 25-30 min. Sprinkle with flour, slash the top of the bread with a sharp serrated knife. Bake at 350F for 42 minutes.

Note: for Rustic Whole Wheat bread, replace 3/4 cup of flour with whole wheat flour

*If you are making our Rustic Bread Mix and only have active dry yeast please do the following:

  • Use a heaping 1/4 tsp of active dry yeast (instead of a level one on instant yeast).
  • Mix yeast with 1/3 cup warm water and let sit for 5 mins until foaming.
  • Add into the dry mixture along with the remaining 1 cup of cool water.
  • Mix as instructions state! Enjoy!
