Crusty Artisan No Knead Bread. This was a recipe I knew I would have to try when I found it at Simply So Good!
It was easy to make but I did have to add more water (she says it takes 1 1/2 cups) to get the right shaggy texture. And my loaf was already pretty dark when I took off the lid after 30 minutes so I only cooked it an additional 10 minutes.
This is what it looked like when I took it out of the oven. I had added about 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese to the dough in the beginning. I think a bit of it stuck to the pot so I had to pry the loaf up to get it out but no big deal.
The bread looks beautiful. The texture was a surprise. Very similar to sourdough bread---a little chewy but not dense at all! The crust is lovely, crispy but very thin. Be sure and check out her detailed tutorial and bread variations.
