  • Hey, I am Hilah. Today, I am going to show you how to make some bread homemade, and you

  • do not need a bread machine, and you do not need to spend 15 minutes kneading and getting

  • your arms all muscly and stuff. Screw that. This kind of bread you just throw it in the

  • bowl and you set it aside, and you don't have to mess with it. Then you have some wonderful,

  • crusty, homemade bread, and you can totally impress your in-laws. Do it!

  • [MUSIC] Okay, so I only need four things for this.

  • We need flour and yeast and salt and water. I am gonna start with three cups of flour

  • in my bowl. Oh, my God! I barely have enough. Talk about perfect planning. It's my middle

  • name. Okay, so I got that in there. I got the flour in. I am going to put in just a

  • quarter of a teaspoon of yeast. If you buy these little packets, they usually contain

  • like 2.5 teaspoons or so, so you have to just sort of cut it open and measure it, and check

  • the date on your yeast. You want to make sure it's not expired. Okay, and then one and a

  • half teaspoons of salt, and I got this recipe just straight off of the New York Times website.

  • I will post the link on there, and it talks a little bit more about like the science behind

  • this and why it works. But I can tell you what I remember, so I am gonna just mix this

  • up together. Combine, all right, now I am gonna put in

  • 1 5/8 of a cup of water, and mix that around, and from what I remember, this article that

  • I read, maybe like a year ago is that you put in a whole lot of water, and then you

  • let it just sit by itself alone for 12 to 18 hours and excess water helps the gluten

  • develop without having to knead it, and then the extra-long rising time with just a little

  • bit of yeast, the yeast actually totally works because you're just giving a lot of time to

  • multiply and create gases and all that stuff. So, anyway, I am not a food scientist, but

  • it totally works, that's the important part. Okay, so it's all combined. Now, I am gonna

  • cover it and set it aside for 12-18 hours and just let it do its thing. So through the

  • power of movie magic I have here a bowl that I made yesterday that's been sitting for like

  • probably 14 hours now. I did put plastic wrap over this one underneath the moist, damp towel

  • just because I made a double batch yesterday and it was rising up really high and I didn't

  • want it to get all stuck to my towel. So you can use plastic wrap, but I would recommend

  • that you put a damp towel down or a damp towel over it just to keep it from drying out. So

  • I am gonna put just a little bit of flour on my counter. Flour emergency almost out,

  • and this is kind of a one-shot deal, so I am gonna show you. I am gonna punch it real

  • hard. It's gonna be cool. So that kind of knocks all the bubbles out. Scrape it out

  • of my bowl. It's very sticky and throw it on the counter. It's like that slime stuff

  • that Nickelodeon use to have. All right, I am just gonna knead I twice. It's just being

  • sort of folded over once, flip it around, fold it over again. That's all you got to

  • do, done. It's all the kneading that this requires.

  • So it feels like a jiggly butt. I am gonna put a little cornmeal down on a plate. You

  • can use oatbran, what else? Put it on the plate, cover it again, and set it aside for

  • another two hours to rise again. Done. See you in two hours. Okay, more movie magic,

  • fast forward two hours. Here we have the second rising of the dough, and I have my oven pre-heated

  • at 450, and I put my pan in there already, so it's really hot, and they get out of the

  • oven and put my, dang it, put my bread dough in my hot pot, and you'll need a pot with

  • a lid on it. Just has a lid that fits it .This blue cornmeal is making my bread look all

  • weird, and just sort of, oooh, it sizzles. Get my lid. Put it back in the oven for 30

  • minutes. Yikes! Okay, it's been 30 minutes. I am gonna get in here, take the lid off,

  • put it in for another 15 minutes, and then we'll have bread. Okay, it's been 15 more

  • minutes. I am gonna take it out of the oven and show you the golden deliciousness, and

  • when it's done it should have pulled away from the edges so you can just ploop, plop

  • it out like that. It's always best to wait a while, while your bread cools before you

  • cut it, but I am running late for this blogger's picnic so I am going to go ahead and cut it

  • now. Okay, so there we go. Delicious, hot, hot bread. It's beautiful risen and it looks

  • so good. All right, I am gonna finish cutting them out and take it to my blogger picnic,

  • but sign in for secret newsletter, get some secrets about me, and stuff, and go subscribe

  • to YouTube, leave me some comments on my website. Give me suggestions. I love suggestions. See

  • you later! Have a great day!
