This post is a true story about a typical bad weather Sunday of mine. The rain is pelting down, skies are grey and everyone at home is in one of those dreary moods. Lets face it these happen to us all at times!
No one wants to make a move out the door until I came up with the idea of going to the Landquart Fashion Outlet. Moans from hubby about not another clothing shop made me promise not to venture into a single clothing store.
Into the car we piled, Christmas music turned up loud and off we went for our Sunday adventure.
Keep reading to find out more about my recent Trip to Landquart Fashion Outlet and a no-knead bread recipe.
My Recent Trip to Landquart Fashion Outlet and a No-Knead Bread Recipe
First things first – I must confess to being ever so excited about having a CHF 200 gift voucher to spend… (such a great idea in case you don’t know what to give a loved one for Christmas).
Newly opened Kägi chocolate store
This is their first ever store besides their factory outlet and full of the most awesome gigantic boxes of Kägi chocolates. The perfect gift for the office or as a bring along to Christmas parties.
Next stop was at the fabulous Le Creuset store. I must confess that I’ve been secretly wishing for my very own Le Creuset pot for ages. Inside the store I literally felt like an 11 year old that had finally been let loose in their favourite toy store!
And then my eyes finally spotted the exact pan I knew I simply had to have…
Black cast iron with a lid. Perfect for frying meat at hot temperatures, yet also useful for slow cooking. Better still, as I paid I was handed a lovely recipe book with fabulous dishes to try out with my new pot. Including a no-knead bread recipe – which I am sharing with you below!
No-Knead Bread Recipe
Preheat oven to 250°C and line your Le Creuset pot with baking paper.
- 800g Flour
- 650ml Water
- 7g Yeast
- 13g Salt
- 1 pinch Sugar
- Dissolve the yeast in water and sugar. Then simply add the flour and salt.
2. Using your hands or a large spoon mix the ingredients together – no-kneading necessary.
3. Leave mixture in bowl to rise for 5 hours or 12 hours in the fridge…(or do what I do and place, covered with glad wrap in a 40°C warm oven for approximately 45mins). The mixture should treble in size.
4. Then place the mixture into your prepared pan. The mixture will seem soggier than normal dough. This is OK!
5. Place in oven with lid on for 5 minutes. Then lower the temperature to 230° C and bake for an additional 30 minutes.
6. Then take the lid off the pan and bake for a further 20 minutes.
Voila the finished bread!
