Yeast… ah yeast… the arch enemy of many a baker I think, I know for me it is. Well at least this time, the second time I have tried to make this bread, I think I might of, and note I said might, have conquered it or at least whipped it into a corner. If you have read my very first recipe post ‘A Little Bit Of Everything Cookie’ you might remember that those cookies were not suppose to be my first official recipe it was in fact the recipe I am featuring today for No Knead Herbed Caraway Bread that was to be the first official True Blue Baking post.
At the time I started True Blue Baking I had decided that I was finally going to learn how to bake bread. I mean I can bake cakes, cookies, pies and tarts and come out with some really great results that my friends and family love but I can’t seem to bake a simple loaf of white bread. It just didn’t make sense to me. So I decided I was going to take the plunge and teach myself how to make a decent loaf of bread that was made with real yeast, gasp the ‘y’ word oh how I hate it.
Okay first decision made now the second one was where to start? What kind of bread did I want to make? It’s not like there is only choice A or choice B of recipes to choose from. In today’s internet foodie world I didn’t have to settle for just plain old white or wheat I literally had a world of recipes to choose from. From Japan to Argentina, from Canada to New Zealand I had my pick so to whittle down the choices I started with one thought in mind… NO KNEADING! I mean with my carpel tunnel wrist issues kneading bread for 10 minutes is defiantly out of the question.
So I hit Pinterest looking for a no knead caraway bread recipe. Why caraway you may ask? Well I had caraway seeds in my spice rack that have been there for forever and I needed some way to get rid of them before they went bad. I make many of my baking decisions on what I need to use up in my pantry… lol! And after looking at literally dozens and dozens of recipes a picture for a recipe from Food Coma just hit me the right way. I decided to boost up the flavor and add a few hearty herbs and voila… No Knead Herbed Caraway Bread was born!!
Before I let you go let me say that this is a really hearty tasting bread that would hold up well to pastrami, corned beef or even plain old roast beef wonderfully. I also want to wish everyone a great weekend and please drop back by after you try this delish No Knead Herbed Caraway Bread and let me know how you liked it.
Until next time everyone… Enjoy!
