I like a no knead bread. A cheat beat -- no yeast, no covering with tea towels, returning to the bowl, giving it another knead before returning it to the blah, blah, blah, like I said, so NOT my bag. Maybe I’m a lazy baker. But that’s fine. It means we've got bread on the table in 40 minutes. Oh yeah, I ain't kidding, forty goddamn minutes people! Now THAT is my kind of bread making. No fuss, no worrying, no painstaking waiting, no kneading. Bish, bash, bosh, on the table, in my belly. Yeow!
