The easiest homemade bread ever. Super satisfying, easy to make. Originally from the NY Times. The easiest homemade bread ever. Super satisfying, easy to make. Originally from the NY Times.
Number of Servings: 26


    1.5 c whole wheat flour
    1.5 c white flour
    1/2 packet of dry yeast
    1 3/4 c water, warm
    1 tsp salt
    1/4 c oat bran


Combine water and yeast in a bowl, allow to proof 10 minutes. Combine both types of flour and salt in a large bowl. Pour the water and yeast into the flour and stir to combine. It will be shaggy. Cover tightly with saran wrap and allow to rise 5-12 hours.

Flour a work surface and pout out the dough. Flour the top of the dough and fold over three or four times. Let rest 15 minutes. Spread the oat bran on a clean kitchen towel. Form the dough into a ball and place on the oat bran. Let rise 2 hours.

90 minutes into the second rise, heat the over to 450 degrees and put in a dutch oven or other heavy pot with a tightly fitting lid. Allow to preheat for at least 30 minutes.

Remove the hot pan and carefully flop the bread in. It will look like a mess, but it will all work out fine in the over. Cover and cook for 30 minutes; then uncover and cook 20 minutes more. Cool on a wire rack.

Makes a 26 oz loaf and serving size is calculated per ounce -- an average slice is about 2 oz.

  • I LOVE this bread. The crust is crisp and it's wonderfully soft and chewy inside. To be fair, though, it's not a 26-serving loaf. It's more like a 12-serving loaf. Still, not bad for calories, and definitely worth it! :) - 5/29/11

  • I have made this, but the recipe I used didn't have the oat bran in it. I added fresh rosemary to it. It is one of my favorite breads. Tastes and looks alot like artisans bread - 1/20/09
