Kneadless Bread

This recipe from Mark Bittman caused a huge stir on the interwebs a few months ago. But we are slow, and kept forgetting to buy yeast, so today marks our first attempt at the baking the famous kneadless bread. The New York Times video is no longer available, but you can check out the clip on YouTube instead. This recipe is AMAZING. Please make it, you will not regret it. It is as easy as it looks, and it tastes like a cloud, and now the apartment smells like a bakery. Yay.

3 cups flour
1/4 tsp instant yeast
1 1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 cups water

Mix dry ingredients together. Add water, pull the dough into a clump, and don't knead it. Let it sit for 12 hours. Preheat the oven to 500. Fold dough into a loaf over some flour, and put it inside a preheated pot/cast-iron skillet/pyrex container. Bake it for 30 minutes covered, and 15 minutes uncovered. Let it cool, and eat it up.
