Knead Time But Don’t Have It? – Easy No Knead Whole Wheat Yeast Bread

20131127-225711.jpg

I’m a simple gal. And I love simple shortcuts. But I love to bake. And I love yeast bread. And that is just so time consuming when I have absolutely none!
So what do I do? I bake some no knead whole wheat yeast bread. That’ll take care of that baking addiction.
So it’s Thanksgiving morning and you know fresh baked bread will go perfect with your meal. So why not make this? This bread can be made the night before or morning of, depending when you are going to bake it. It will need at least 8 hours of rise time and another hour afterward.
With just these 6 kitchen staples, you can have amazing effortless bread by this evening’s supper. Or with breakfast coffee! And to boot, it is purely vegan.

Ingredients needed:
1 cup flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp active dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tb cornmeal (optional)

In a large bowl with a lid or a clean one gallon house bucket with lid, whisk together the dry ingredients.

Add the warm water and mix with a wooden spoon until combined well.

Cover with a lid tightly and set the bowl in a warm place.

It truly is science.

The natural fermentation of the yeast in this recipe is amazing. You can even do this recipe with your kids if you have a clear bowl, and have them check the bread every hour and note the rising process.

After 8-10 hours have passed, set your oven to Warm.

Spray a loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and lightly dust it with 2 Tb of cornmeal or flour. Dump the dough into the prepared loaf pan and tuck any dough under as needed.

Optionally, you can roll out the dough and divide it into a 12 cup muffin tin for individual rolls and continue as directed.

Place the loaf pan in the warm oven and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes to an hour. (I have zero patience and only wait for 30 minutes, which lends a slightly denser bread, but I love it!)

Raise the oven temperature to 375F and bake for about 35 minutes until bread is lightly browned on top.

Cool the bread slightly on a wire rack and slice as desired.

Cover with lots of fresh dairy butter or vegan butter spread.

Dig in…my boys love this stuff. It is so perfect for finicky sharks, as I can make it before I go to bed and wake up and pop it in the oven. Easy peasy!
