No-Knead Bread Mix in a Jar Recipe

  • For the Jar
  • 4 ½ cups bread flour (all purpose works fine.) If using whole wheat, you may want to add 3 Tablespoons of vital wheat gluten to help with the rise)
  • 2 teaspoon active quick rising dry yeast
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • When it's time to bake
  • 1 and ¼ cups of warm water
  • 1 tablespoon of raw apple cider vinegar.
  1. Stir until no dry patches remain. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise 1½ hours.
  2. Preheat oven and baking stone to 450 degrees. Punch dough down and remove it from the bowl. Using your hands, pull the sides of the dough down and to the bottom until you have a round loaf. Place on a piece of parchment. You can also use a large cast iron skillet. I bake all of my dinner rolls and cinnamon rolls in my cast iron skillet. If you don't have a large cast iron skillet, you can also use a bread pan. If you prefer the shape of a bread pan, use that route, it looks more rustic when done on the stone or skillet, but all the methods will bake fine.
  3. Let rest 40 minutes.
  4. Just before baking, dust the top with flour and slash three times. Transfer the dough with the parchment onto the baking stone. Bake for 24-30 minutes. Let cool before slicing and eating.


  1. Cool! How long does the yeast remain active when sealed in a jar? Do you seal with a canning lid for long term storage?

  2. I add a oxygen absorber 300 cc and vacuum seal the jar ...they stay fresh for 7 to 10 years.

  3. Hi I would love to try this bread recipe...but I don't know what spash three times with flour means??? Anyone?

  4. it says to dust the top of bread with flour and then you make 3 slashes across the bread dough before cooking, this makes your bread loaf pretty when it bakes, I think you must have misread the instructions, hope this explanation helps
