Fast No-Knead Whole Wheat Bread

Combine in a large bowl:

Add:

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 1/2 cups water

1/2 cup whole rye flour

Stir until blended; dough will be shaggy.

1/2 cup coarse cornmeal|

Cover bowl with plastic wrap.

1 teaspoon instant yeast

Let dough rest 4 hours at warm room temperature

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Oil a standard loaf pan (8 or 9 inches by 4 inches; nonstick works well). Lightly oil your hands and shape dough into a rough rectangle. Put it in pan, pressing it out to the edges. Brush top with a little more oil. Cover with plastic wrap and let rest 1 hour more.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake bread about 45 minutes, or until loaf reaches an internal temperature of 210 degrees. Remove bread from pan and cool on a rack.      Yield: 1 loaf

SPEEDY NO-KNEAD BREAD

Combine in large bowl:

Add and stir until blended:

3 cups bread flour

1 1/2 cups water

1 packet ( 1/4 ounce) instant yeast

Dough will be shaggy

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Let dough rest about 4 hours at warm room temperature, about 70 degrees.

Lightly oil a work surface and place dough on it; fold it over on itself once or twice. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes more in parchment.

At least a half-hour before dough is ready, heat oven to 450 degrees. Put a 6- to 8-quart heavy covered pot (cast iron, enamel, Pyrex or ceramic) in oven as it heats. When dough is ready, carefully remove pot from oven. Pick up dough and parchment, put it into pot. Shake pan once or twice if dough is unevenly distributed; it will straighten out as it bakes.

Cover with lid and bake 30 minutes, then remove lid and bake another 15 to 30 minutes, until loaf is beautifully browned. Cool on a rack.     Yield: 1 big loaf.

Almost No-Knead Bread

cups  unbleached all-purpose flour (15 ounces), plus additional for dusting work surface

1/4 

teaspoon  instant or rapid-rise yeast 

1 1/2 

teaspoons  table salt 

3/4 

cup plus 2 tablespoons  water (7 ounces), at room temperature

1/4 

cup plus 2 tablespoons  mild-flavored lager (3 ounces)

tablespoon  white vinegar 

1. Whisk flour, yeast, and salt in large bowl. Add water, beer, and vinegar. Using rubber spatula, fold mixture, scraping up dry flour from bottom of bowl until shaggy ball forms. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature for 8 to 18 hours.

2. Lay 12- by 18-inch sheet of parchment paper inside 10-inch skillet and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Transfer dough to lightly floured work surface and knead 10 to 15 times. Shape dough into ball by pulling edges into middle. Transfer dough, seam-side down, to parchment-lined skillet and spray surface of dough with nonstick cooking spray. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until dough has doubled in size and does not readily spring back when poked with finger, about 2 hours.

3. About 30 minutes before baking, adjust oven rack to lowest position, place 6- to 8-quart heavy-bottomed Dutch oven (with lid) on rack, and heat oven to 500 degrees. Lightly flour top of dough and, using razor blade or sharp knife, make one 6-inch-long, 1/2-inch-deep slit along top of dough. Carefully remove pot from oven and remove lid. Pick up dough by lifting parchment overhang and lower into pot (let any excess parchment hang over pot edge). Cover pot and place in oven. Reduce oven temperature to 425 degrees and bake covered for 30 minutes. Remove lid and continue to bake until loaf is deep brown and instant-read thermometer inserted into center registers 210 degrees, 20 to 30 minutes longer. Carefully remove bread from pot; transfer to wire rack and cool to room temperature, about 2 hours.
