If you follow me on Instagram, then you know I’ve become quite obsessed with making bread…. I mean, its not a bad thing, really! Anyways, bread is one of those things that seems really intimidating to make, but I’ve found a few no-knead bread recipes that have been super easy!! And let me tell you, there is NOTHING like some fresh baked bread!
I’ve gone the no knead route bc honestly, I have no idea how to knead, and its worked out better than I could’ve imagined! You really do need to give it a go!
One thing that has been a must for my breadmaking binges is my dutch oven! I found one from the Lodge brand at Home Goods for a steal bc tbh, dutch ovens can be REALLY expensive! I have used it so much since I bought it tho, so it’s worth spending a little money on!
Here’s a few Dutch Ovens from the same brand:
The first bread recipe I tried was this simple no knead bread – Recipe HERE! Its simple, it rises pretty quickly and it turned out great! This is definitely a great first breadmaking experience recipe!
The second bread recipe I tried (and have made a few times now) is this rosemary olive oil no knead bread – Recipe HERE! The flavor in this bread is A-MAZING! I love me some rosemary so it was a no brainer!
One last thing you HAVE to do if you’re making bread is to make a dipping oil! Something about bread and olive oil….and wine! omg, nothing like it! Dipping oil is SO easy to make! You can use fresh herbs, but in a pinch, I throw this together:
Pour extra virgin olive oil in a small plate (or dish). Add salt, pepper, garlic powder, italian seasoning, red pepper flakes and parmesan cheese. Stir to combine and serve with your bread!
So there you go, TWO Easy Bread Recipes for Beginners!
I promise you, it’s not as scary as you think AND when you try it, you’ll cross one thing off our January Bucket List! Also, please tag me in your bread pics! I cannot wait to see all the doughy goodness!!
