this bread rocks

I've made this recipe many times and I love it! I've started adding stuff to it to make it more hearty: a small handful each of raw oats, quinoa, and sunflower seeds is heavenly, and doesn't collapse the bread!

AWESOME bread!

My bread came out fantastic, though my pan was big and the slices weren't as tall. Also, the bread stuck in my crappy pan because I don't use oil. I ordered a new pan from Amazon that everyone says is amazing. It better be for $15!!! :-) I can't wait to try this again in the new pan. Check out my results at:

I am keen on this bread! My question if your still replying is the timing to double our dough after taking out of the fridge.
To get a nice early morning loaf with four hours to get it to room temp is difficult . Have you any tricks allowing the bread to be left out overnight for 12 hours after refrigeration? Can it be slightly frozen first?

This bread is awesome! The first time that I made this bread, it did not rise enough. For the second trial, I increased the yeast by 1/2 teaspoon and it rose beautifully and tasted much better than the first! I can't wait to make different variations of this recipe by adding in herbs & seasonings!

First time!

It was first time baking a bread loaf when I made this yesterday, and to be honest, it turned out great!

Though I didn't exactly follow the recipe, (since I included about a teaspoon of cinnamon powder, used 3 1/2 cups whole wheat flour (fine) and about another 1/2 cup (coarse) and about 1/8 cup of whole grain seeds to sprinkle on top, below and some with the dough itself) it did rose properly after the first rising, and also the 2nd, but I left it for about 4 more hours than the given 1 1/2 hours since I had to go somewhere, when I got back it already popped the plastic cover cause of the gas of yeast, I transferred it to a non-stick loaf pan and let it rest for 40 minutes before finally sliding it in to the oven at 350F, waited 22 minutes, rotated it 180 degrees, and baked it for 23 more minutes.

After 45 minutes I removed it and used a cake tester stick to check if the inside is cooked, sadly it wasn't fully cooked on the inside, I tried putting it back for 20 more minutes at 350F degrees but the inside still stayed the same.

Take note that I didn't vigorously mix it when I finally put it in the loaf pan, so I'm not sure if it really was under-baked or it's the lack of the mixing, also I'm unsure if my dough was right since it seemed a little too wet (that's why I added more flour than in the recipe). The final outcome was that the bread still kind of smelled yeast-y inside even after baking. Since it's my first time making a bread loaf I don't know which one is the reason, other than that the bread was awesome! My dad told me that the loaf can still be eaten by slicing it and toasting it, so we did that and it turned out quite well!

To Tara

I have trouble with it rising too much and slopping over the pan. I just realized in reviewing the recipe that I was failing to pull the dough over to the other side. So I will try that.

Is your yeast fresh? I am using a Rapid Rise so I have to check it sooner. Haven't tried the fridge recipe only because have a small fridge and there is no room in there.

And unrelated to you... I did find something to cover the dough with. Some Extra Large bowl covers that I found on Ebay. Works for both the bowl and pan but because the dough tends to slop over the pan, some will get into the cover. I think I need to look for a deeper pan.

won't rise

Am I the only one who is having a problem with my bread simply not rising? It rises for each 1.5 hour time frame but when I let it proof for the 40 it won't rise and stays exactly that same height the whole baking process! I don't understand it. I have tried it with both the refrigerated and non-refrigerated versions. Any advice??

Best Bread Ever!

This bread is wonderful but I was wondering what kind of plastic bag you used. I found some 2 gallon, thin, bread type bags in my cupboard. They just barely worked to cover the bowl the first time but the bag wasn't big enough for the pan. So I used two sheets of plastic wrap but I did oil t he wrap so the rising bread wouldn't stick. This last time I tried a bowl cover which turned out to be not quite large enough. I know that a trash bag would work but is probably not food safe and you can't see under it.

Vegan bread

I love thi bread. Is perfect! I only have one question, do I have to preheated the oven for 40 minutes while the bread is in the proofing process? Is any other way so I dont have the oven on for so long?

Calories per slice

Well this recipe looks great and healthy. I was just wondering how many calories are in each slice and about how big are the slices. Just can't wait to try this looks great. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

a smart way for baking

Used 1 teaspoon of yeast and was a bit more than what i usually use. The flour cant rise when very wet because its drowned by the weight of water. I first mixed parts of the water and flour for a minute or 2 so the yeast will attach then added flour in batches as well as water. The dough didnt double but i could see it and feel it its like 3times rise sizr like a wet sponge. The thing that i like a lot of this baking is that it allows wholewheat to wet enough and i learnt that flipping the loaf pan 180 degrees upsidedown helps in the bread falling without sticking. Thanks for the great art!

Question about flour

I have been searching and searching for a vegan, no oil bread that is also gluten free......can a GF flour blend be substituted in this recipe? I make my own that contains brown rice flour, tapioca starch, potato starch and xanthan gum.

Great recipe that even a beginner can handle!

This was my first time making sandwich bread. Prior to this I've only made banana bread. Though it is a recipe that require quite a bit of time at home (though much of the time is hands off time just waiting until it's time to stir again), this is a simple recipe to make. I love that it did not require bread flour, since I already had whole wheat in my pantry and wanted to use as much whole wheat as possible. I've since made this recipe several times. It's great if you're on a budget and want good whole wheat bread. I also love that I know that there are no added preservatives or unnecessary ingredients. I usually make two loaves on the weekend, slice them, and then freeze one loaf to use once the first loaf runs out.
Thanks for sharing this recipe!

The best!

Turned out beautifully! I've been on a search for an easy, delicious bread and I've finally found it. Thank you!

Hi! I have just made this recipe! I have added some flex, sunflower and sesame seeds. Everything seemed to work perfectly, but once in the oven it didn't raise at all. I was wondering if I was suppose to cook with the fan on. Because I cooked the loaf with fan forced off, is that the problem?
Thank you!

excellent recipe

It is nomtastic as confirmed by guinea pigs (bf, flatmates and folks at work eyeing up my bread with envy). I used 3 different flours chucked in whole load of nigella seeds ( which were bought because of their name and accidentally proved to be delicious) and whatever else I had at hand spice wise. Great. The only bad thing is- whole damn loaf disappeared in less than 24 hrs. Making another one already :) I really like no knead no bother approach, I'm dead busy during the week and this is something easy to throw together and than even if i ll forget about it it will still turn out great.

Owner's reply

That's great that the bread worked out well for you MadinGlasvegas! Wow nigella seeds- had to look that one up. I bet they were interesting in the bread. I love buying random ingredients, throwing them into recipes and seeing what happens. Thanks for sharing!

Mattie, you are a freakin' GENIUS!! Best bread I've ever had in my life, hands down. I used white whole wheat flour (my favorite flour). I have a rather small loaf pan, so it ended up spilling over in the oven (good thing I placed it on a baking sheet). But that's okay...it made for excellent pull-apart pieces of bread lol. Thank you so much for this recipe, I'll make it again and again and again!

Owner's reply

So happy you enjoyed the bread Christine! Glad you were able to make it work with the smaller loaf pan!

Huge loaf!

This recipe produced a huge loaf of delicious, fluffy bread. I used half bread flour and half white whole wheat, and it turned out great. Thanks for sharing this recipe :)

Owner's reply

That's great that this bread worked wonderfully for you Bex! I'm a huge fan of the half whole wheat, half bread flour ratio too!

how wet should the dough be?

hi there. i'm in the process of making this recipe now, so am writing in the hopes that maybe, just maybe, i'll get a quick response. my dough seems awfully wet. i'm about 20 minutes into the first rise and...nothing is happening. i fear that the water/dough ratio is off. i used locally milled soft 100% whole wheat flour. thanks!

Owner's reply

Hi jataylor! Since this bread is a no knead recipe, it uses an especially wet dough. There usually won't be a noticeable rise within the first 20 minutes. You can get away with a wide range of water/flour ratios in bread doughs; rising is more dependent on gluten development and yeast health.

That's great that you used a locally milled whole wheat flour. I hope it worked out for you! If not, feel free to private message me for troubleshooting/post-mortem analysis;)

So Easy and So Good

Made this loaf for the first time today, and I had no trouble with it rising. It rose beautifully, and came out soft and chewy, I loved it.. I love the fact that it is Oil-Free, which is hard to find with those grocery store whole wheat loaves!
Thanks for the recipe

My 2nd attempt was MUCH better

I love this recipe! Although I ran into an issue with my first attempt where the bread did not rise at all (I'll be using that loaf for hummus or bread crumbs). For my second attempt, I used a whole tablespoon of yeast, and kept the bowl on a pan over a warm stove. It rose beautifully!

I added in thyme, rosemary and garlic cloves. Really delicious, and my husband couldn't believe it was vegan.

Thank you so much for sharing the recipe!

So glad this bread worked so well for you sheheardme. That's great that the extra yeast solved your rising problem!

Soft, doughy and amazing

This bread is amazing, we use everday for sandwiches. So good and doughy, soft inside, crispy crust. I have also used this recipe with white flour and rolled jalapenos and garlic cloves in the dough too. This is a staple in our vegan home. Keeps well & not too hard wrapped in a tea towel for up to 3 days (although a loaf rarely lasts that long).

Owner's reply

I'm thrilled that this bread is a staple in your home foodphile! I can't wait to try it with jalapenos and garlic cloves. Great idea!

Great texture and flavor

I haven't made bread in quite some time so I was a little nervous before making this recipe, especially after reading some of the comments about have trouble getting the bread dough to rise. I also had trouble getting the dough to rise. I put it on top of a stove under overhead lights think that this would be a warm enough spot for the dough to rise. But I was wrong! I remembered an old trick that a bread baker showed me. I turned on my oven to 200 degrees. Then when it reached this temperature; I turned off the oven and placed the dough inside the oven and covered the bowl with a slightly dampened, clean dish towel. Voila! The bread dough rose beautifully within the hour and a half time frame. The rest of the process went smoothly but I forgot that making bread is a commitment of several hours. The bread turned out beautifully, however, and my husband and I loved it! I think that our son who has the vegan diet, will also enjoy it.

Owner's reply

So glad the bread worked out so well for you Laurie! I'm going to be experimenting with increasing the yeast a tiny bit in the future so it rises more consistently. Thanks for sharing!

Wonderful!

This is an amazing recipe. It turns out perfectly every time. Imagine an easy bread with no oil that makes a perfect sandwich (or toast) bread. I've done it both with the short rising and the 24 hour one and they are both great. Nice and light. No negatives at all.

So dense

I don't know what happened. I followed the directions exactly and it was looking beautiful in the bowl, but once I dumped it in the loaf pan I couldn't get it to rise above the rim. I finally decided to bake it, hoping it would rise more in the oven but it actually sank a little - about 1/2-1 inch below the rim. It came out so dense, my kids won't even eat it and I don't blame them - it's going to be hard enough for me to try and finish the loaf. Is there something I could have done wrong? I've never made a no knead bread before, so I don't know if it was supposed to be as wet as it was - it did look pretty similar to the picture though. I tried another bread recipe, the kind you knead, and it also ended up very dense and not at all like the pictures or all the great reviews. Am I doing something wrong? My yeast is brand new, so I know that's not the problem. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Owner's reply

Sorry the bread didn't rise enough Becca! It's interesting that you have newly purchased yeast, followed both recipes exactly and had the same issue with a kneaded bread recipe too. It's difficult to tell what went wrong but it could be that even though your yeast is new, it has somehow been compromised, perhaps by being stored in a hot environment before you purchased it. You might want to get another yeast packet from the store just to be sure.

Failing that, I'd recommend overshooting the yeast next time and adding about 50% more to ensure you get the proper rise. Typically, you only want to use the amount of yeast that is necessary; too much can impart excessively yeasty flavors but it would be a good way to get a handle on what's going on, and get some edible bread along the way. Good luck!

Tasty!

I don't know how something so simple could be so delicious. I just finished a Master Cleanse and I was happy to find something very tasty with whole ingredients. I used whole wheat pastry flour. I also used rapid rise yeast, and because of that I didn't do all the rising and mixing process. My bread did cave in in the middle a little bit.

Owner's reply

So glad you liked the bread AlannaPie! Cave ins usually happen because the yeast has consumed all of the nutrients it can then the gas bubbles that allowed the bread to rise prematurely escape before the bread gets a chance to bake through fully. Glad it was still a keeper!

Wow

I made this recipe for the first time last night. In fact, it's the very first time I've ever really made bread at all. It was so super easy and it made me look like I'm a pro at making breads. I've wowed my friends and family. And they couldn't believe it was vegan and it was no-knead. I love your recipe and thank you, thank you, thank you for sharing it.

By the way, do you have any simple and easy recipe for kneaded bread? I'd like to try something that has a more elastic crumb structure and chewy texture like usual sandwich breads. Thanks!

Owner's reply

Thanks so much JT! I'm so happy the bread worked out so well for you. Whole wheat flour plays a huge part in inhibiting a lot of the sponginess of breads. This is because the bran husks can get in the way of the gluten strands and actually cut them to make the bread less soft. Also, the bran husks don't soften as easily as other components of the flour so baked items with whole wheat flour tend to be a little more stiff and mealy than things baked flours like all-purpose flour.

Your best bet to increase sponginess is to substitute half of the whole wheat flour with all-purpose flour or bread flour. You could also try it with a kneaded bread recipe here: http://www.veganbaking.net/breads/enriched-breads/yeasted-enriched-breads/486-easy-wheat-bread

Good luck!

Excellent!

I made this today and ate it with my ratatouille supper, I was so delicious. It didn't even need butter or any kind of spread. I did get a pretty good over spill during the proofing stage but I just pulled it over to the other side like the instructions said and it was all good. I am wondering thought, because it has such a large rise would one still get the same delicious results if the doe was divided in two after the 1st or second rise to make two smaller loaves? I think I will try this next time. I am not a very experienced bread maker. I have only ever tried it 2 or 3 times, this is the only time that a recipe has worked for me. So now that I have found one that works for me I will defiantly make it often. Thank you so much. My day in the kitchen has never been so rewarding as it has been today!

Owner's reply

So glad this bread worked out for you Blayney! You should totally be able to divide this dough and make it smaller in two separate loaf pans. As long as the dough rises adequately in some sort of loaf pan, you should be able to split it up as much as you'd like. Thanks for sharing and I'm so glad you had such a great baking day!
