An experiment with no-knead bread dough turned into a lovely Sunday brunch with some very yummy french toast & toast with savory egg scramble!

For those of you who have a bread machine sitting around collecting dust, here are some ideas.

I am cooking my 5 min bread tonigh . Thanks for all the hints I can't wait to see how it turns out. Thanks for the tip about the stone. I will go to Habitat and get one.

It turned out wonderful! I followed ComfortableShoe's advice.. 375 for 45min and a bowl of water at bottom of oven.. Yum! Crispy crust and soft goodness on the inside! I can't wait to try different variations next!

OKIE DOKIE! I just mixed up batch of Mother Earth News No Knead Bread (I want to to do what all the cool kids are doing) and popped in the fridge to do it's thing. Weeeeee! I am so excited. Think I will let is sit in the fridge for a few days before baking. Did that with a pizza dough recipe once with GREAT results. Keep posting y'all. It's great to get your tips and ideas- a new muse.

If you don't have a stone, bake it up on a lightly greased cookie sheet. I got my stone from the habitat for humanity store. Well, it's not exactly a stone, it is a granite tile 12"/24".. but it works just fine.

Hi, I am new to the group and I am going to try the Mother Earth News No Knead Bread. In the recipe it says to bake on a stone. Do you have to do this? I don't have a stone. What should I use as a substitute?

Hurray! I started my first homemade bread tonight! I'm following the no-knead recipe... will post photos tomorrow after it's done!!

You guys are doing some great stuff - I better get at it. My last sourdough produced three loaves of pretty good bread. More fine grained than ciabatta like and hubs wanted "the bread like you made two loaves ago." Oh?

Those baguettes looked gorgeous and they make me want to get back at it. Maybe this weekend. The onion-thyme ciabatta was good.
