#GGBreadRevolution – No Knead Bread

How do you feel about making your own bread?

Are you one that makes their own loaf everyday, kneading away and have bulging forearms?

Or does the shear thought of working with yeast scare you into a corner, with your arms crossed over your chest whilst you rock back and forth, trying to think of puppies, kittens and anything that will take you to your happy place?

FEAR NOT PEOPLE!! Ruth, the Gourmet Girlfriend is here to save us all!

You’ll have crusty, fresh bread, without breaking a sweat. Sounds too good to be true right? Well I gave it a go and I was amazed. In fact, as I sit here writing this a few days later, I’m STILL amazed!

For the recipe, you’ll have to pay Ruth’s blog a visit:

My Grandpa used to make his own bread. Breakfast at my grandparents’ was always a lavish affair. Freshly made bread, croissants  jams, cheeses, and little boxes of cereals. The bread was always, always, always the highlight.

My Dad now makes his own bread using the Thermomix, and whilst I know Ruth also owns a Thermomix, she still makes this no knead bread daily. Once you give it a go yourself, you’ll see why! Speaking of my Dad, he saw my photo of my bread and asked where I bought such a good looking loaf of bread! Who knew I was an amazing bread maker all along…and you can be too!

I decided to make bruschetta with my first loaf, as I had an abundance of fresh tomatoes from Dad’s glasshouses. Nothing beats fresh bread, but fresh bread with balsamic drenched through it comes pretty damn close.

So check it out, and follow the bread revolution through the hashtag on instagram and twitter #ggbreadrevolution

Thanks Ruth for sharing this amazing recipe. I can’t wait to get all experimental with the flavours!! xx

      Not sure, but Ruth also suggests to “get a camp dutch oven from a disposal store. Cheap & PERFECT for this.”

    I love making bread in the thermie but I think I will love this even more. When I move and when I get reunited with my cast iron pot, I am so going to try this! The bread looks screen lickingly good on it’s own but you have really surpassed yourself with the styling! Orse!

    That bread is brilliant. I love making no knead bread and I always wait til the last minute so the bread gets just a bit soury (is that a word?) It’s so easy to make and everyone should try it.

    Just don’t take the heavy pot out of the oven and drop it on your glass stovetop because it will break. it will. I know. However if you need a new stovetop like I did, beauty.

    I’ve made a loaf like this and I was so pleased at how well it turned out that I had plans of making it every second day after that! It continued for a while but I still get out the recipe every now and then. Great pics Shellie!

    Oh this does look so yummy!

    I make bread and dough regularly but I leave it to the trusty bread maker to do the kneading, no bulging biceps for me ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Love all your beautiful images ๐Ÿ™‚
