No-Knead Bread

This bread is so simple to make, you can mix up the dough before you go to work and bake it when you come home.  The recipe incorporates whole wheat flour as well as flax-seed meal for a tasty and healthy combination.

I’ve given the quantities by weight (with approximate volumes) so that if you own a kitchen scale, you can just add all the ingredients to a single bowl without breaking out the measuring cups and spoons. ┬áCan’t be any simpler than that!

Ingredients:

  • 425g (1 3/4 C) – Luke-warm Water
  • 375g (~3 C) – Unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 217g (~1 3/4 C) – Whole wheat flour
  • 32g (~1/3 C) – Flax seed flour
  • 13g (~2 1/4 tsp.) – Salt
  • 8g (~1 1/2 tsp., or one package) – Instant yeast
