Recipe for No-knead Pot Bread with Garlic Butter
- 1 kg white bread flour
- 10 g (15 ml) instant yeast
- 30 ml extra virgin olive oil, plus more for oiling the pot
- 15 ml salt
- 875 ml (3 1/2 cups) water
For the garlic butter:
(make ahead and refrigerate until ready to use)
- 250 g butter, very soft but not melted
- 15 ml extra virgin olive oil
- 2-3 garlic cloves, finely grated
- a large handful of parsley, finely chopped
- salt & pepper to taste
Place all the ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix with a wooden spoon to form a wet, sticky dough.
Cover with a lid or plastic wrap and allow to stand at room temperature for 4-6 hours (longer if it’s a cold day) until it has tripled in size and has formed large bubbles.
Grease a large, wide pot (about 30cm, preferable enamel-coated iron or plain iron) generously with olive oil on the inside. Using oiled hands, shape the dough into 10-12 balls and place them alongside each other into the pot. Cover with plastic and leave to proof for a second time, around 30 minutes, until doubled in size.
Pre-heat oven to 220 C while waiting for the second proof.
Remove the plastic, cover with an oven-proof lid and bake for 20 minutes (the bread will steam).
Remove lid and bake for another 20 minutes until golden brown with a hollow sound when tapped.
Top with lashings of garlic butter when still very hot, melting the butter into the bread. Serve warm.
Tip: Use a silicone spatula to loosen the bread from the sides and bottom of the pot, if necessary.
For the garlic butter:
Mix all the ingredients together with a spatula in a mixing bowl (or use a food processor for a smoother result).
Turn out onto a piece of grease-proof paper, then roll into a log and refrigerate.
