A super easy recipe for an amazing no knead bread! It requires no special equipment, mixer or technique. You will only need a wooden spoon and your love!


  • 1 kg bread flour (35 oz.)
  • 2 tsp active dry yeast (8g, 0.3 oz)
  • 650ml lukewarm water (22 oz.)
  • 2 tsps sugar 
  • 2 tbsps olive oil 
  • 1 tbsp salt 


  1. In large bowl add the yeast, water and sugar and mix to dissolve. Set aside for 10 minutes. 
  2. In the same bowl add the flour, salt and olive oil. 
  3. Mix the dough using a wooden spoon for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is combined. You should have a very sticky dough. 
  4. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it rise for 12-15 hours.
  5. Flour a large working surface and your hands and place the dough on the surface. Gently deflate the dough and cut in half. Knead the dough a little bit with your hands and form two round loafs. Place the two breads in a casserole dish and score the top of the bread with a sharp knife.
  6. Bake in the casserole (with the lid on) in preheated oven at 210C for 45 minutes and then remove the lid and bake for another 15 minutes.
