Let’s get right to it. On a whim, I decided to buy a dutch oven. I have always feared dutch ovens simply because they intimidated me. Plus, I always assumed that they were very expensive. To my surprise, Amazon has a couple of incredible dutch ovens that didn’t break the bank! I ended up purchasing THIS ONE. The good news? I seriously LOVE it.

Ok back to the bread.

This recipe is easy to make and it IS quick to bake. However, there is about an 18-24 hour rise time that you need to account for. Making the dough takes no time. Allowing it to sit on the counter is a no brainer. Baking it is simple and quick once the dough is ready. Allot for the rise time and you’ll be golden.

Cool, here’s the recipe.

Quick And Simple No Knead Dutch Oven Bread


  • 1 Dutch Oven


  • 3 cups All Purpose Floud
  • 2 tsp Active Dry Yeast
  • 1 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 1/2 cups Warm Water 105 Degrees F


  • Combine the flour, yeast, and salt in a large bowl and stir to combine.
  • Add the water and mix until the dough forms a ball.
  • Cover the bowl with plastic wrap (sprayed with cooking spray) and a damp tea towel.
  • Let dough sit covered at room temperature for 18-24 hours.
  • After 24 hours (or at least 1 hour before you want to serve) preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.
  • Place  your dutch oven with a lid in the oven while it is preheating. (Note: You can use a 2 or 5 qt. dutch oven).
  • While oven is preheating, transfer the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface.
  • Form the dough into a ball, and add a few Tbsp more flour if needed. The dough should still be a little bit loose. Then cover it with a floured towel while the oven is preheating. (Keep in mind: The dough ball will be loose and "floppy." You will not have a firm ball, it will look a little flat).
  • Carefully remove the hot dutch oven from the preheated oven. Remove the lid and spray the dish with cooking spray or you can line it with parchment paper.
  • Gently put the dough ball into the baking dish so it’s evenly distributed.
  • Cover and bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown.
  • Remove the loaf from the baking dish and let it cool on a rack before slicing. To keep it warm, cover with a tea towel.
