No Knead Bread

Here's a recipe for an easy no-knead bread that you need to try :). A dear friend made it for us, and then Gaigai (12 years old) decided to give it a try.  It's amazingly delicious - tastes like Italian bread fresh from the bakery!

In a medium bowl, combine 
3 c flour
1/4 tsp yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt

1 1/2 c water

Incorporating by hand or with a spatula for 30 seconds to 1 minute.

Coat inside of a second bowl with olive oil, and place dough in bowl.  Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let rest 12 -15 hours at room temperature.

Remove from bowl.  Fold once or twice. Let rest 15 minutes in bowl.  Next shape dough into ball.  Generously coat a cotton towel with flour, place dough seam side down and dust with flour.  Cover dough with another cotton towel and let rise 1-2 hours at room temperature.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.  30 minutes prior to baking, place 6-8 quart cast iron pot with lid in  oven to preheat.  Place dough seam side up in pot, cover with lid and bake 30 minutes.  Remove lid and bake 15-30 minutes uncovered until loaf is nicely browned.  Buon appetito!
