No Knead Artisan Bread in 3 hours

This easy and tasty bread is ready to be devoured in 3 hours and 5 minutes at the most. Its perfect with butter and as a sandwich bread. Enjoy!!!

  • 1 1/2 cup warm water (about 100 Fahrenheit)
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
  • 3/4 Tbsp active dry yeast
  • 3 cups bread flour (plus extra to dust the dough and parchment paper)
  • Parchment paper 

Add water in to a bowl. Add salt and mix it to dissolve it. Then add yeast 

Let yeast set for few minutes until it gets little foamy.
Add flour one cup at a time and mix it lightly.
Add and mix all flour. Cover dough with plastic wrap and let it rise for 2 hours in the warm place (like oven or microwave).

After 2 hours lightly flour dough and hands. Scrape out dough into a lightly floured parchment paper.
Once you have dough on the parchment paper shape it to your desired shape and cut three strips with a sharp knife and let it rise for additional 35-40 minutes.
 In the meanwhile preheat oven on 450 Fahrenheit and add cookie sheet and baking dish into an oven to heat up.
Boil one cup of water.
After 40 minutes pour boiled water into a baking dish or loaf pan. Then slide bread loaf with parchment paper into a hot cookie sheet (use a protective glove to not get burned) and bake it for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. 

Remove bread from the oven and let it cool into a room temperature. After its cooled serve it with butter or make a tasty sandwich. ENJOY!!!
