Our Simple No Knead Artisan Bread Recipe

Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 30 minutes
Total Time 8 hours 45 minutes


  • 3 Cups Good All Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Yeast
  • 1 teaspoon Salt We use Pink Himalayan Salt or Sea Salt
  • 1.5 Cups Warm Water dont go over 120F


  1. Add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl and stir them together.
    dry ingredients compained
  2. Place the bowl in the stand mixer and add the water. Stir it until it is all combined. It will look like cookie dough. It only takes a minute. Cover the bowl with a cloth and let sit 8-12 hours. We make ours at night and let it sit overnight on the counter.
  3. After it has risen for 8-12 hours. Flour your work surface and shape your dough into a ball. DON’T knead the dough. Once you have done this set it back in a floured bowl and cover with a cloth and let rise for another 30 minutes. After the 30 minutes Preheat the oven to 450F. If you want a round bread place an oven-safe pot in the oven to preheat also. After the oven is preheated. Which will take another 30 minutes.
    risen flour
  4. Remove the pot, place the dough in the pot.
    Put a cover on the pot. Don't preheat the cover.
    Bake the bread with a cover on it for 30 minutes.
    After 30 minutes if the bread is to your liking remove.
    If you want a thicker crust remove the lid and bake another 5-15 minutes
    Remove and let cool.

Recipe Notes

This recipe would make an awesome bread bowl too.

If you don’t have 8-12 hours to let the bread rise. Use 1.5 teaspoons of yeast and let it rise for 5 hours

    Love your YouTube channel but my only
    minor gripe is when each time you say
    ‘Good morning modernsteaders’
    Dunno know but for some reason it sounds so condescending .
    Sorry but thats how it comes across:(

      Lol funny you should say that Anita but my husband finds Al’s intro annoying as well (no offence Al ! We both love your channel) 🙂

    • John

      My 6 yr old son and I love your intro. I say it to him every morning, “Good morning modern Sean’ er.” He stops whatever he is doing and says it with you whenever I play your videos.

      My kids and I love watching this channel. My 6yo says, “Daddy, let’s watch the New Yolk City guy!” I think the opening line each time is great!

      I watch Al’s video every day since the last two weeks that I became a subscriber and I like to hear him say good morning. I know everyone is different, so Al don’t change anything about your videos it’s what sets you apart from everyone else, it’s perfect and who wants to change perfection? LOL..

    • Moe

      I love your intro!!

    • Sharon Story

      Well, I love Al’s greeting! It always puts a huge smile on my face as he seems to welcome me back into his world. Please don’t change, Al. We love y’all! Sharon in South Carolina

      I love it , I’m a “Modernsteader,” like our grand parents did things but with modern technology .

    • Ruth Wickline

      My husband and I LOVE hearing Al’s intro!!! We settle down with our first cup of coffee and enjoy every minute of the videos… We even have our 7 and 9 year old grandchildren from the West coast enjoying the animals….. Keep up the wonderful work Lumnah Family… ❤️

    Easy enough, just a bit too white for my taste, hubby should like this though, he is a plain white sandwich bread guy 😁

    I am new to your channel and I love the greeting you give each time. Keep up and don’t listen to the negative nancy’s, you just be you. I always say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. This world has enough negative in it. You just keep on doing what you’re doing. My husband and I live in a small city that is more rural where we are but still, we raise hens for their eggs and grow a garden of food as well. We are planning on retiring in a few years time and will buy a piece of land to homestead on, we can’t wait. I love the idea of making that recipe the night before and not having to knead it. Thanks and God bless.
