No-Knead Bread – The Easiest Bread You’ll Ever Make!

This No-Knead Bread recipe is by far the easiest way to make bread. PLUS you only need 3 ingredients!

As we are in self-isolation at the moment due to Covid-19, we want to stay home as much as we can. So while my husband was watching one of his favourite YouTubers (Glen & Friends), he realised there was a video on there showing people how to make No-Knead Bread.

So Phil made it, and it turned out PERFECT. In fact, we have made it several times since then.

We have a dutch oven (which is a cast iron pot), and this is what you’ll need – either that or a heavy pot with a lid that can go in the oven.

I thought I’d share this recipe with you as I have had so many questions from people as to what it is. I reached out to Glen (from Glen & Friends / LeGourmetTV) and asked if I could write out the recipe and include his video – and he said yes.


  • 3½ cups (875 grams) of all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp (7 grams) of coarse salt
  • ½ tsp (2 grams) of instant yeast**
  • 1¾ cups+ (450 mL+) of cold water


  1. In a large bowl, combine the flour, salt and yeast. 
  2. Add the water and mix with a fork until the flour is moistened, and forms a ragged dough mass.
  3. Cover and let rest 8 to 12 hours on the counter at room temp.
  4. Preheat the oven to 220°C (450°F). 
  5. Place a Dutch oven or heavy pot with a lid in the oven to preheat.
  6. An hour before baking; fold the dough in on itself 6 – 12 times.
  7. Grab the edge, pull up and fold over; turn the bowl a bit and then repeat.
  8. Sprinkle a little flour in a second bowl, transfer the dough and coat with flour. Re-cover and let rest for about 45 minutes.
  9. Drop the dough into the preheated Dutch oven, cover and cook 30 minutes. 
  10. Remove the cover and cook for another 20 – 30 minutes.
  11. Bread is cooked when internal temp reaches 190ºF.

For us, we cooked the bread at 220°C in oven for 30 minutes using fan bake. Then we removed the lid and cooked further for 30 minutes.
