French easy bread with no kneading

French easy bread with no kneading

An easy bread recipe? It sounds like an irresistible appeal to me as I love to make bread.

Very often I find and test bread recipes that are pretty good, but need kneading and special ways to work the dough that, at the end, I don’t prepare them anymore (obviously there are exceptions, such as the butter and milkless brioche bread).

In Brazil, when I grew up, the most common bread was always the French bread. Long baguettes or, more commonly, the small ones, pãezinhos (small bread) in Portuguese. So, when I found this recipe, I admit I was attracted because it is written in French and it sounded to me as a trustful reference.

It resembles the other no knead bread recipe I have posted some time ago (and it’s probably the bread recipe I prepare most often), but has a bit of milk that makes a little difference. I really don’t know which one I like most.

  1. Melt the yeast into the warm water

  4. Put the dough inside a bowl, pour the remaining flour above, cover with a kitchen towel and let it rest for 1:30 hour.
  5. Turn on the oven to 240°C/460°F with no fan and put a small bowl with water inside.
  6. Pour the (sticky) dough onto a floured surface and, adding more flour, divide the dough in 12 pieces.
  7. Add some seeds (as I did) or just flour the small bread pieces, giving it a round shape.
  8. Place them on a pan covered with parchment paper and bake for 20/25 minutes.
