breadtopia's picture
It’s amazing what the addition of a mere half cup of steel cut oats can do to enhance and vary the quality of a basic loaf of no knead bread. During the long fermentation period, the grains soften and swell to give the bread a wholesome and satisfying flavor and texture.Simple enough to whip together in a heartbeat and interesting enough to become a regular in your no knead rotation.
