Awesome bread

Today I made this awesome 12.5 hr bread lol It was easy peasy lemon squeezy, though no lemons were actually hurt in this recipe. I found the recipe HERE You can make it too.

So, TONIGHT, before you go to bed...

In a LARGE bowl put 1 and 3/4 cups of WARM water and 1/4 teaspoon of dried yeast.

Give it a swish about.

Add 1 teaspoon salt and 4 LOOSE cups of regular plain flour. Do not pack the flour down or you will use too much, you do not need to use bread flour.

Add 1/2 teaspoon dried herbs, I used oregano. Don't be tempted to use more, dried herbs are strong.

Give it a really good mix up, and then cover the bowl tightly with clingfilm/saran wrap.

All this should have taken you less than 5 mins. Make sure you bowl is LARGE.

now go to bed.


After 12 hrs, which will be sometime tomorrow when you wake up...

Tip the dough, which will have doubled in size, onto a lightly greased baking tray. use a spatula to ease the stringy dough from the bowl.

Do not mix it, do not knead it, just tip from the bowl.

Add some grated cheese, I used Gruyere and Parmesan, but you could just use Cheddar.

Bake 400F/Gas mark 6 for around 25 mins.


This makes a flatish bread, for deeper slices bake in a regular loaf tin.

The outside is crispy/crunchy and the inside is fluffy and full of air pockets.

This is just totally yummy, and as long as you mix the night before you get a fresh loaf of bread in under half an hour.
