Dutch Oven Bread {no-knead}

Homemade whole wheat dutch oven bread! An easy way to have fresh bread any day!Just the other morning, over coffee, Jay and I were talking about food and recipes and I was telling him how much I wanted a dutch oven to experiment with because I’ve discovered that I’m obsessed with one-pot cooking (and baking). I’m embarrassed to admit this, but I’ve never owned a dutch oven. I know, the disbelief!

So naturally, when I was approached by the awesome folks over at REVOL, who create quality porcelain cookware pieces from France, I could hardly contain my excitement! They sent me the most beautiful porcelain 4.75 quart dutch oven I’ve ever seen!

Woohoo! And, the finish is free of chemicals and heavy metals, which is my second most favorite thing. Because you know where I stand on that!

oOf course, now that I have this dutch oven to play with, the question remained…what to make first? Well, being that I’m a baker at heart, I had to bake in it first. I made a loaf of whole wheat {no-knead} dutch oven bread!

  1. I love the idea of a simple and healthy bread recipe, but when I made it as directed the dough was VERY watery. I added a ton more flour to make it all stick better. It’s rising now, so fingers crossed it all turns out ok!

    I would like this in 2 three quart cast iron Dutch ovens instead of the large 6 quart one I have. Do you have any idea how long to bake this size? I tried once, but used the same time (45 min) and it turned out too dry and hard. Any help would be appreciated.

  3. this looks sooo yummy! I have been meaning to try more breads. I will try this one and let you know how it goes!

  4. Thanks for the recipe Kristine. Raising bread is like making a fine wine. I love it.
