Yesterday I made King Arthur’s No Knead Harvest Bread. I actually started it Tuesday evening, left the dough sitting all night, then baked it yesterday.
The recipe calls for raisins but I don’t like raisins at all so I substituted chopped prunes, which I do like. Otherwise, I didn’t change anything. This is the very end that I cut off while the bread was still warm. I know that’s a bad thing to do but I can’t help myself.
My favorite way to eat this bread is to spread butter on both sides, then place it in a sizzling hot skillet and brown it on both sides. Yum!
If you have all purpose flour, whole wheat flour and yeast (which I understand is not easy to get right now), this is a super easy recipe. I’ve made it before and used blueberries, dried apricots – really whatever dried fruit you have would work. I’ve also used chopped apples or pears – most any of the drier type fruits would work.
You can use most any heavy baking dish that has a lid – the ceramic covered cast iron or regular cast iron Dutch ovens.
Since there’s no kneading, I think this is a very easy recipe.
