No Knead Fruit Bread, Overnight Bread - Fire Up Your Oven, Day 14

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Thursday, April 16, 2015

While searching for No Knead bakes, i came across this overnight bread. Quite a simple recipe, just mix flour, salt and yeast with water. Add any seasonings you like, rest it overnight for about 12-18 hours, shape and bake . I have tried 2 savory breads and one fruit bread with this recipe. All came out super good. All the 3 times i baked half the recipe given below. Since the dough is rested for long hours,the amount of yeast is very less. 
I would definitely recommend this for anyone who fear the yeast. There is nothing you can go wrong here, except with the flavors. :) 
I m sharing picture recipes of the savory breads i made with the recipe. Since i made a very small loaf,it got over the same day even before i could take a decent photo. The savory bread can be paired well with a soup or a salad for a filling meal.

Savory Bread 1 : Tomato-Basil Cheddar Bread

Savory Bread 2: Coriander & Cumin Bread

Inspired from here
3 Cups Bread flour
1/4 tsp instant yeast
1&1/4 tsp salt
1 & 1/3 Cup water

For the fruit bread
3 tbsp candied fruits/tutti frutti
3 tbsp raisin

For savory bread 1:
1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander
1/4 tsp cumin seeds
1-2 green chilies, chopped fine
1/4 tsp white sesame for topping

For Savory bread 2:
1.5 tsp tomato paste
1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 tbsp finely chopped basil
  • I made 2 versions with the above ingredients. I mixed the dough with yeast and salt. Divided it into two half and added fruit to one portion and savory to other portion. It is up to you to bake a sweet or a savory bread completely. 
  • Take flour,yeast, salt  into a wide bowl. Whisk well to combine. Add the fruit/savory ingredients to this and mix well.  Now add water to it and mix well with a spatula. 
  • Cling-wrap the dough and refrigerate it overnight. The dough has to rest for 12-18 hours minimum. I made the dough in the evening and baked it next day morning around 12 in the afternoon.
  • After 12 hours of resting, take the dough out of the fridge. Prepare the loaf pan with parchment paper. Dust the dough with flour, and shape the dough into a loaf and place it in a loaf pan.  since i used half the above recipe i baked in a small loaf pan.
  • Let the dough sit for 2 hours. Preheat the oven to 200C and bake the loaf for 20-22 minutes or until the top turn golden brown. 
  • Remove the loaf from the oven, transfer it to a wire rack, let it cool completely. Cut and serve with your favorite spread.  
  • I served it with nutella to my kids and whereas we enjoyed it as such warm. 
  • Since i said i have used half measurements i m giving those measurements which i used to make the above said savory breads
