Baking bread has become one of my favorite things to do during quarantine and my favorite bread recipe is for no-knead bread.


  • 3 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1½ tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. Yeast
  • 1½ cups luke-warm water
  • 3 tablespoons of brown sugar 
  • 1/2 cup of raisins 
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  1. Measure out warm water and add the yeast to the water. Let the yeast sit in the water until it becomes foamy. 
  2. Mix the dough: Combine the flour, salt, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins in a large bowl. Stir to combine. Pour in water and continue stirring until the dough has formed. I like to use a spatula for this. 
  3. The dough will look messy and not smooth and that is completely okay. 
  4. Let it Rise: Once combined, cover the bowl tightly with plastic wrap or set a towel over the bowl;  let sit on the counter overnight.
  5. Preheat Dutch Oven: When the dough is done rising and ready to bake, preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  6. Stick a 6-quart enamel coated cast iron Lodge Dutch Oven (or similar) in the oven for about 30 minutes to heat.
  7. Shape Dough: Heavily flour clean countertop or surface. Remember this is no-knead!  Dump the dough onto a floured surface and shape into a round ball.
  8. After dutch oven has preheated, take the dutch oven out CAREFULLY  with some oven mitts or hot pads. Note handles will be extremely HOT!
  9. Place the ball of dough in the dutch oven and cover with lid.
  10. Bake at 450 degrees F for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, remove lid and bake for an additional 15 minutes until done. Bread will be golden in color.
  11. Cut into 12 slices, serving size 1 slice.
