The Technique
the idea to try this method comes from Jim Lahey of Sullivan Street Bakery
as published by

The New York Times
No-Knead Bread Recipe
By: Mark Bittman

 The Flour

A very sticky dough,
I dusted the bench with about 1/4 cup of bread flour
then turned out the dough.

Don’t over think it,
shimmy into a pretty round & you’re set.

The Pecans

Toast pecan halves in a 350 degree oven
for about 8 minutes or until fragrant.

Allow them to cool.
Run a knife through them for a rough chop.

The Tools

I’m not a gadgety kind of girl.
However, I highly recommend a plastic bowl scraper
to help retrieve the dough from the bowl.

It’ll set you back approximately 2 pennies.

The Taste

Loaded with toasty pecan crunch & nutty notes from the seeds.

The crust is crispy yet chewy…
very similar to a fine sourdough.

The interior,
dense with lovely pockets throughout.
The cornmeal adds good texture & overall heartiness.
