Is there anything more comforting than the smell of fresh baked bread? How about some Rosemary Garlic fresh baked bread that required not a single bit of dough kneading? Nope. There isn’t.
I love me some homemade bread. We make a lot of it in this house. This No Knead recipe was our gateway bread. It’s so easy that I had no problem whipping up a loaf with a newborn at home. Just mix all the ingredients together in one bowl, and then leave it alone overnight to let it rise. Then in the morning I put the dough in a loaf pan and let it rise for another couple of hours. Baked for 45 minutes and mmmm fresh bread. So easy!
My favorite thing about this bread is how wonderfully crispy the crust is while the center is perfectly soft a chewy. Then of course the rosemary and garlic flavors? Amazing. I may not be sure of the last time I washed my hair, and I may be walking around in a sleep deprived haze, but despite all of adjustments into a life with a newborn at home, there will be fresh baked bread in this house. Gotta teach our little one about priorities young, right?
