Fleischmann's Simply Homemade No Knead Bread Mix

     Today I am not going to the trouble of posting a recipe because you can follow the instructions for making this no knead bread on the back of the box.  Instead, I am posting photos of the steps required in making this delicious and ridiculously easy loaf in your dutch oven.  If you don't want to take the time to make this classic version of no knead bread which requires the dough to rest for 12 hours, this boxed mix from Fleischmann's is something you can whip up at your campsite in under an hour. 
     In my 10 inch deep dutch oven it baked for 25 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the bottom, 15 in a ring around the outside of the lid and 9 spaced evenly in a ring around the middle.  Initially I started with 2 extra coals on the lid to heat the oven up quickly but removed them after 10 minutes.  When the scent of homemade bread wafts from your dutch oven, it's probably done.  It's not necessary to make this in your deep oven as the bread doesn't rise all that high.  Relatively new to the market, I paid $2.00 a box for this handy mix and here's a link to the company's site if you want to print out a coupon.  On the package they suggest adding diced, cooked bacon and grated Cheddar to the dough which would probably send it into bread nirvana. 
     If you're nervous about baking bread from scratch, give this mix a try.  Except for heating the water for the yeast, it's a camper's dream come true, all you need is a bowl, a wooden spoon and a hot dutch oven to enjoy the taste and aroma of home made artisan type bread.

Add warm water to yeast and sugar, let sit for 3 minutes

Add flour mixture and mix until ball forms

Add to well oiled dutch oven and sprinkle with 1 tsp flour

Cover and let rest for 25 minutes in warm draft-free location,
make slits in loaf before baking

Bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown

Pass the butter please


  1. Haven't seen this bread mix yet but will definitely keep my eye open for it! Looks very nice!

  2. Almost too easy Becky, they just started carrying it where I live so hopefully it will be in your area soon, I know it's on Amazon but with shipping costs it's hardly worth it. Thanks for stopping by, Liddy

  3. I like the easy part. I do bisquits all the time, but always shied away from bread. I'll look around to see if we have any around here. Thanks for posting.


  4. Scott, I never attempted yeast bread from scratch until I started this blog, so if I can make this anyone can. Hope you can find it, have a great weekend, Liddy
