No-Knead Whole Wheat Bread with Sorghum Flour

This is a yummy variation of no-knead artisan bread with whole wheat and sorghum flours. Even if you are not an expert baker, no-knead bread is easy to make and all you need is a Dutch oven.



Step: 1

Dissolve yeast in 1 1/2 cups lukewarm water in a small bowl. Let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Step: 2

Mix 2 cups whole wheat flour, sorghum flour, and salt in a large plastic container with a lid. Stir in yeast mixture with a wooden spoon, adding more water if dough is not evenly moistened. Cover with a lid and let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled in volume, about 2 hours.

Step: 3

Dust a cutting board with 1 tablespoon whole wheat flour. Turn the dough out onto the board and briefly knead with your hands. Shape into a round loaf. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon flour over a clean dish towel; place in a bowl. Place dough in the bowl and cover with the ends of the dish towel; let rise until nearly doubled in volume, about 1 1/2 hours.

Step: 4

Preheat oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C) after dough has been rising for 45 minutes. Place a lidded Dutch oven inside after 25 minutes.

Step: 5

Remove hot Dutch oven from the oven using oven mitts. Place dough inside carefully, using floured hands. Cover with the hot lid.

Step: 6

Bake bread covered in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Remove the lid and continue baking until top is golden brown, about 10 minutes. Lift bread out of the Dutch oven using oven mitts and tap the bottom; if it sounds hollow, bread is done. Let cool for at least 1 hour on a wire rack.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re make wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.

To make this in a dough , add all the ingredients to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.

A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great timesaver , as you can work it night before , then clear it off the next day.
