A no knead recipe that turns out nicely risen bread with a glorious crust.
King Arthur, I think I love you.

I admit to being rather skeptical. This is the loaf just before I slash it and get ready to throw it in the oven. Look how limp. It barely even reaches my 2nd knuckle!
But would you just look at this impressive rise? Within a few moments of being popped in the hot oven, the bread puffs up bigger than a puffer fish and by the end of the baking it's turned that fantastic deep golden brown.
And it wasn't super dense inside :) YAY! Guess what's going to become a part of the regular rotation while it's not too hot to be cranking the oven up to 450?
