Bread recipes

I think many of us are discovering or rediscovering a love of baking recently. I thought it would be fun if we shared bread recipes!

    I've become enamored of no-knead artisan bread because of how easy it is to make. I like this twist on it: Mediterranean Black Olive Bread. It's clearly product placement for Mezzetta Black Olives, but it's pretty good anyway. (And the bread is great without the olives, too!) It's basically just:

    1 packet active dry yeast
    1.5 cups warm water (100°F)
    2 teaspoons salt
    3 cups bread flour

    Mix the water and yeast and cover for 5 minutes.
    Mix the salt and flour, then add the yeast and water and mix it.
    Put the dough in a covered bowl (or your cold oven) and let rise for 10 to 24 hours.

    Once it's risen, put a 4 quart dutch oven into your oven and heat it up to 450 degrees without the lid for 30 minutes. Then put the dough into the hot dutch oven, cover it, and leave it in the oven at 450 degrees for 30 more minutes. Take the lid off and cook for an additional 15 minutes.

    Be very careful taking it out of the oven! Beautiful, delicious bread!

    If you are eating keto/low-carb or simply want to try something different, and would like to experience a more German bread than the usual white fluff, I’ve been making this for a few years now :) Naturally gluten free.

    30g chia seeds
    30g salad seed mix
    50g shredded flaxseeds
    50g protein powder
    40g of whatever flour, I usually use a mix of konjac, almond, coconut and psyllium seed husk.
    2 eggs
    250g Quark (I’ve heard this is available in the US; any fat percentage works, but for 10 & lower you might want to add a bit more vinegar)
    2 Tablespoon Apple cider vinegar
    1 tsp of baking powder
    Salt and spices to taste

    Mix everything well and leave to rest for 10 minutes. Then form a loaf and bake in pre-heated oven at 200C for 40 minutes. Let cool and enjoy.

    Note: I finally got myself some gluten and will try it with 20g of gluten in the 40g of whatever now ;)

    Here is a pretty old picture back when I used a slightly different (and carbier) recipe: https://imgur.com/a/ZxjJA
    And the original (German) recipe I started with.

    We've been doing Mel's Kitchen French Bread Dough - no pans required and have had some tasty results! It's really low key to make... assuming you have a stand mixer with dough hooks. Even if you don't, you could knead it by hand, I think.
