Easy and Decadent No-Knead Wheat Bread!

What you need: 

3 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup unrefined sugar (or other sweetener)
1/2 tablespoon salt
1 (1/4 ounce) package dry yeast
1 teaspoon cinnamon, optional
1 2/3 cups warm water

What you do: 

1. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the water last. You can use an electric mixer, but I find a spoon works fine and is much easier to clean. Grease 1 loaf pan.
2. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and smooth out the top. Cover the dough with a towel or greased plastic wrap and let it rise for about and hour (until its doubled in size). Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
3. Bake for about 45 minutes (until a toothpick comes out clean).
This is really a treat with a nice raspberry jam. Such a simple pleasure! One can also add 1/3-1/2 cup raisins for a scrumptious cinnamon-raisin vegan bread.'

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Have to play with the cooking time a bit, guess it depends on your oven!  ;)  Overall a very easy loaf of bread to make, works in a pinch!  I am going to try baking it at 350 for 1/2 hour...we will see what happens.  I also used a round casserole dish to rise and bake with.  Turned out good!  It turned out a nice large, round loaf.  Looking forward to trying the cinnamon/raisin version.

well, it turned out to actually be very nicely edible, so i wasn't too disappointed in the end.  it also rose a bit more whilst it was cooking so it didn't come out too much like a brick either - hurrah!

i obviously did something wrong as i had to use a lot more water to bind the mixture and my dough didn't rise very much!  it can't be my yeast as it's brand new....it's in the oven at the moment but i'm not too hopeful!  i think i'll just stick to the 'outrageously easy big bread' recipe that's on here too as i haven't really had problems with that one!

Great recipe. I finally made my own wheat bread. Thank you very much for the wonderful information. ;D
I followed the whole things except the cooking time. This time I tried 25 mins, and the bread came out a little bit burned. I will try 20 min next time. I think this situation is quite depending on what kind of oven people used. So far this is quite simple and excellent recipe for me and my family. :)

I baked this bread for 25 minutes and it had already started to burn but inside wasnt done baking. It tastes pretty good after I turned off the oven and left it in for a couple of minutes. Very easy to make. I added raisins and ground flax seed and it was definitely good but too hard on outside compared to inside.

second attempt at making this bread, again, completely satisfied. I used half whole wheat, half all purpose. baking done in 25 minutes. no cinnamon added. I think I like the taste even better.

Oh yeah! This is some good stuff. I added the cin,  raisins and some ground flax too. It is so yummy right out of the oven and warm. My 6 yr old is in love. Thanks for a great recipe -- I will use this again, but next time I think I'll try savory.
BTW, I think it would do well as sandwich bread, especially if you cut it a little thick.

This was so good!  I've never made bread before, but I made it and it turned out fabulous and was gone in about 2 hours -- the entire loaf.  My 1-year-old LOVED it too!  I also think it would work great for french toast, I'm going to try that tomorrow!
