No need to knead bread…………….. Yes really!


This is cheese and chive bread that I made recently.

It really is the easiest bread I have ever made. It is one of those recipes where there is a lot of alchemy involved and really as long as you follow the simple instructions, you just have to trust it will be ok.

I have also made a rosemary, chive and thyme loaf, a plain white one and a mix of wholemeal and white and, they were all as good as each other.

But the very best thing about it is that it makes the house smell delicious for very little effort!

The recipe came from Janet who writes at Simply So Good and can be found here. She has pictures every step of the way and it is definitely worth having a go.

The English version (because Janet does it in American cups) of the main four ingredients are:

400g Strong bread flour

½ teaspoon of dried yeast

1 teaspoon of sea salt

300ml tepid water

To make it cheese and chive, I added:

50g strong cheddar cheese

1 teaspoon of dried chives

There you are soft, chewy, fresh bread!


*Tip: Add 200mls of kettle hot water to 100mls of tap cold water and viola, tepid water!
