I made a new video. I made a loaf of bread called No Knead Beer Bread. I decided to film me making the bread, so I could put it on YouTube to remember how I made the bread. I was making corned beef and cabbage and I wanted to eat hot bread with butter. I cooked the corned beef in the crock pot, so I had a few hours to make the bread. The bread came out really good and I just made a small loaf to eat with dinner.
Here is the recipe:
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast. 1/4 warm water
2 cups all purpose flour. 6 ounces beer (I used the other 6 ounces in my corned beef.) 3/4 tsp fine salt. Also 1/4 cup of flour for the yeast sponge.
Also a pinch of sugar.
Stir together the yeast, 1/4 cup flour and 1/4 cup warm water in a large bowl. Cover with a hot damp towel and let sit in a warm spot for 30 minutes. Then stir in beer, remaining 2 cups of flour and salt into the bowl. Mix until all the flour is incorporated and forms a thick sticky dough. Cover and let rise in a warm spot for 2 hours, until doubled in size.
Scrape all the dough from the bowl with a rubber spatular, place on a well floured surface. Flour the top of the dough and form into a loaf shape. (Flour your hands too.)
I used a parchment paper to keep the bread from sticking to the pan. Transfer your loaf to a baking sheet, cover loosely with a towel, I used plastic wrap sprayed with an oil spray and put over the bread and let rise for 30 to 40 minutes. Preheat oven 425 F degrees. (220 degrees C. Slit top of bread see video, sprinkle a little flour on top, put in oven with a little pan of water for moisture placed at the bottom. Bake 25 minutes or until golden.
