No-knead Bread

I've sort of fallen off the bread wagon. We used to make fresh bread weekly, but since we moved things have been a little too hectic. Last night before bed, Tristan whipped up some no-knead bread dough. It just takes a few minutes to combine the ingredients together. The next morning, the dough has doubled in size and the slow rising process means that plenty of gluten has developed without the need to knead.

I folded the dough, plopped half of it into a loaf pan, and baked it for about 40 minutes. The result:

With the other half of the dough, I spread it out on a greased cookie sheet, sprinkled olive oil on the top, and covered with oregano and garlic. I baked this at 450 for maybe 15 or 20 minutes. The result:

Wish you could taste it!
