Making No Knead Bread

No knead breads are yeast-risen loaves that are not kneaded; the dough is placed in the refrigerator overnight to develop the gluten.

No-Knead Breads are a great alternative if you're not comfortable making kneaded breads or if you want a dough that can be prepared in advance and left in the refrigerator to ferment. No knead doughs ferment for a longer period of time to develop the gluten. This longer fermentation process allows you to do a lot of the work ahead of time. All you need to do on bake day (depending on the recipe) is to shape the dough, put it in the pan, let it rise, then bake it.
