I also just saw this on my YouTube rabbit warren maze last night, I started with "126 meals for $30" and she makes no-knead bread to save money on real bread, and it looks fine.  A similar eat-cheaply video shows a no-knead pizza recipe too.

That's the one I watched too :lol:

It does work, but it will not be like soft supermarket bread. Quite crusty.

I also found this myself but I can't find a simple gluten free recipe for my son. I honestly don't have time to let it rest overnight before putting it into the dutch oven pot to cook!

Chazonator - do you have a stand mixer? This gf bread has quite a few ingredients, but once you’ve got them it’s very easy to make. No kneading, just briefly let it rise.


Gluten free bread

400grams lukewarm water
1tblspn apple cider vinegar
30g olive oil
2 eggs

220g brown rice flour
80g millet flour
140g tapioca flour
40g besan flour
100g mixed seeds Eg pumpkin, linseed, sunflower seed, chia seeds
7g dried yeast
20g raw sugar
2tspn xanthan gum
1 tspn salt

Whisk wet ingredients and set aside for bubbles to settle.

Combine all other ingredients in a separate bowl (of the stand mixer if using) and mix well.

Add liquid ingredients to dry and mix using either a bread maker or dough hook on a stand mixer.

Place in a bread tin, and allow to rise for about 30 minutes.

Bake in moderate oven for 40 minutes.

If your son doesn’t like seeds, you can leave them
Out with no problem. You can also use white rice flour (the asian one is finer than the baking aisle one) if you prefer a whiter loaf.
If you have a hankering for a delicious gf fruit toast, swap out the seeds and replace with a cup of sultanas and about 2 teaspoons  cinnamon, I tsp ground nutmeg and 1/4 tsp ground cloves.

Agree. I gave it a go but found it hard to eat tbh. Very rustic!

Frankly, after trying the $7 a loaf GF supermarket bread, I'm keen for something with more substance.......

One of the videos I watched did have some wholegrain/wholemeal GF bread flour, so no need to mix the different flours etc. Not sure if that is more cost effective compared to buying it at the shops as a loaf.

I got up to the part where she was showing the dishes in the oven for the bread and how important it was to heat them as you were heating the oven then switched off last night :rofl:

It’s lovely for things like soups and stews.

I LOVE the old NYT no knead recipe. So easy and so delicious.

Matt Preston has a recipe for a no-knead bread. It's basically white flour, water and yeast, left to prove overnight in the fridge, then divide into loaves or rolls and bake. Super easy and really nice bread.
