Parmesan No-Knead Skillet Bread
The holidays are here. My daughter also has a birthday coming up. She will be 15. I can’t believe that. It’s a busy time. But no matter how busy we are I always make time to create some of our favorite recipes that bring back so many great memories of this time of year. Recipes like this Parmesan No-Knead Skillet Bread are a staple during the holidays. You see, because I was expecting my daughter during the holiday season, I tend to associate my favorite holiday flavors with the things I was craving while I was pregnant with her. That pregnancy it was all about the bread. Oh how I love a delicious crusty bread. The smell, the baking & everything that goes in to making homemade bread just conjures up fond memories.
This time I decided to make this family favorite with Bob’s Red Mill Organic Unbleached White Flour. I love that it’s organic & the fact that it’s unbleached is very important to me.
It’s simple to make. Just combine your water & yeast. Then use a wooden spoon to mix in your flour. Cover & let rise about an hour. Then oil your iron skillet, transfer the dough & let rise again before baking. It’s so good.
You see, both the bran and the germ have been removed leaving the endosperm that is made into white flour. It is not enriched with any additives. Oh how I love that there aren’t any additives.
It’s the same high protein flour used by professional bakers and produces high, well-textured loaves of bread equally as well as it produces light, airy baked goods. It’s a must have in my kitchen because is incredibly versatile and perfect for all of my baking needs.
