Homemade No-Knead Bread Recipes

Rye Bread

2 1⁄4 cups bread flour, packed and leveled
3⁄4 cup rye flour, packed and leveled, plus extra for dusting
2 tablespoons caraway seeds
1 1⁄4 teaspoons salt
1⁄2 teaspoon active dry yeast
1 1⁄2 to 1 3⁄4 cups cool water 

Combine all dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Mix thoroughly.

Add 1 1⁄2 cups water and stir with rubber spatula. Add remaining water (and more) as needed until you have a thoroughly mixed, wet, sticky mass of dough. (The dough will not be like any other bread you’ve made – this will be much wetter and will not form a ball.)

Cover bowl with plastic wrap and let sit at room temperature, out of direct sunlight, for 12 to 18 hours.
