Peasant Bread

I was shown this bread recipe in a TikTok by the user @williamcraft09, and after seeing how easy it was, I knew I had to give it a try. It’s since become my go-to bread recipe because I can basically start it and then forget about it and nothing will go wrong. It requires no kneading, and no expensive mixer.


Makes two loaves


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  • 2 cups luke-warm water
  • 1/2 cups sugar
    • OR 1/3 cups honey
  • 1 tablespoon salt

Special Equipment

  • 2 bread pans


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, combine dry ingredients.
  2. Add water, and fold together until a sticky ball of dough is formed.
  3. Let rest in mixing bowl for 2 hours
  4. In the meantime, butter two dishes to bake in
  5. After dough has rest, with two forks, pull the edges of the dough into the middle.
  6. Split the ball down the middle with the two forks, and place each half in the buttered dishes.
  7. Preheat oven to 425°F
  8. Let dough rest in dishes for 20 minutes
  9. Bake at 425°F for 15 minutes

  12. Remove from dish, and let finish cooling on wire rack
