Make No Knead Bread in 2 Hours!

Fastest No Knead BreadI’m so excited to share this way of making no knead bread even faster than my “faster no knead bread” recipe, which takes over four hours. And that was fast compared to the original overnight method, which took over 12 hours. But now, I am making it in two hours! This recipe uses the same ingredients as my original loaf but with more yeast. Instead of 1/4 teaspoon, I use 2 teaspoons (one packet) of instant yeast.

Most bread connoisseurs will agree that the longer the dough rests, the better flavor the bread will develop. This is true but I don’t care. Some days I want bread and I want it fast! Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    You are the best. *****
    I’m doing the 4 hr.recipe version with the 1/4 teaspoon of yeast. Looks delicious. And, now I know what aerating flour is all about.

    I would love to make an olive oil rosemary variation of this bread, how much do i use of each?

    Please tell me the steps to aerate bread. I just want to make sure I’m doing it exactly right. Thank you!

    I have been making the 2 hour no knead bread. I also tried bread flour. I like it but not a huge difference. My question is what is the best way to store and keep this bread fresh? I tried putting it in a paper bag which was okay. What about aluminum foil? Any thoughts?

    Why do you prefer a single rise bread?

    Will the two hour recipe work for the rye bread as well?

    You saved my ‘cooking for guests’ day. Woke in the night: OMG forgot to start the no knead bread. 2 hour bread to the rescue …

    Can I add olives to this recipe? or do you think it will weight the bread down

    Yesterday I made the no knead bread using whole wheat flour for half of the required flour. Delicious! I want to try using semolina next time. Thank you so much for the wonderful recipes…just love the humor in your videos!

    I, accidentally, found you on You Tube and I was thrilled because I watched you years ago on your talk show and loved you. I watched your videos on your website and found so many I will try. I’m starting with the Baked Donuts– just received my donut pan from Amazon. Also, I’m going to try the two hour bread. Thanks for these great recipes.
