- Flour: We want all-purpose flour to be the base of this bread dough so that we have a great texture and gluten ratio going on.
- Yeast: You can use active dry yeast or instant yeast depending on your preference or what you have on hand.
- Salt: salt will help to enhance the flavors in this bread and make it taste even more incredible.
- Water: Water will help to activate the yeast and turn our dough into an actual dough, giving moisture needed to keep the bread soft.

FAQs for No Knead Bread
It’s a simple bread recipe that has about 5 minutes or less of active work and the rest is spent waiting. For a no hassle bread recipe it really is great and the longer rise times help to give it its characteristically nice texture too.
Bread can become dense if the wet to dry ratio is off. In some cases, different amounts of liquid like water and drys like flour may need to be used.
In the event that the dough is too wet, add in a little more flour but in the case the dough is too dry, adding in just a little water can really help to avoid dense and clumpy bread from forming by giving it the proper moisture needed to make a light loaf. This can vary with the weather and living conditions.
