Okay, so I am definitely the last person in the universe to try the no-knead bread, but I thought you had to have a Dutch oven to properly make it! Last week, though, an article in our local newspaper indicated I could use Pyrex or enamel, so I had no more excuses. Let me first confess that I am not a bread purist. I hate kneading dough. If my Kitchen Aid stand mixer can do the kneading for me, why should I get my hands all sticky? Also, I am short, so I have to stand on a stool in order to get enough leverage on the dough to knead somewhat efficiently. Lastly, I am weak and possess flabby arms. No kneading for me!
To read more about no-knead bread, please visit Megan at Not Martha. She has extensive information about it. And for the record, I used King Arthur all-purpose flour that I purchased at Trader Joe’s (I also got my rapid-rise yeast at Trader Joe’s). My Pyrex casserole was too small, so I ended up using my Chantal pot, and it worked just fine.
