Whole Wheat No-Knead Bread
Whole Wheat No-Knead Bread is a delicious homemade artisan-style bread that you don't have to knead! This recipe includes provolone cheese, Italian herbs, and 7-grain cereal. It's a terrific hearty and filling bread to serve with soups and chili. This tasty bread is really easy since you mix the ingredients a day ahead and then bake the next day.
- 2 cups bread flour NOT all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 cup 7-grain cereal dry
- 2 tsp. sea salt or kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. yeast
- 4 tsp. vital wheat gluten
- 1 1/4 cups provolone cheese shredded
- 1 tbsp. parsley
- 1 tsp. chives
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 2/3 cups water
Stir flours, cereal, salt, yeast, wheat gluten, cheese, and seasonings together in a large bowl.
Add water and combine.
Cover with lid or plastic wrap and allow to sit on counter 12-18 hours or overnight.
Heat oven to 450°.
When the oven has reached 450° place a cast iron pot with a lid in the oven and heat the pot for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, pour dough onto a heavily floured surface and shape into a ball.
Cover with plastic wrap and let set while the pot is heating.
Remove hot pot from the oven and drop in the dough.
Cover and return to oven for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes remove the lid and bake an additional 15 minutes.
Remove bread from oven and place on a cooling rack to cool.
Makes one artisan-style loaf.
NOTE: Preparation time does not include the 12-18 hours required to allow the bread ingredients to rest.
NOTE: Homemade bread has no preservatives and needs to be refrigerated after 2 days.
NOTE: all-purpose flour does not contain the necessary gluten to bond the ingredients together as well as bread flour. The bread may turn out crumbly. For best results use bread flour.
NOTE: I recommend using Fleischmann's yeast or bread machine yeast in any yeast bread recipe. Red Star yeast just doesn't work as well.
NOTE: I actually allowed the bread mixture to sit on the counter about 24 hours.
