HUMP day

I'm trying the "No Knead Bread" for supper tonight. I've used it as pizza dough a couple of times but yesterday I bought a stoneware pot and Im' going to try to bake a loaf. Nobody else liked the Hot cross buns except for Steven but he only ate one. But I was quite impressed with how well they rose. I would really like to learn more about bread making. Well quiet time is over...

I have yet to make a loaf as well because I have no pot. Let us know how it turns out.

I like the whole easy bread idea too...except for all the bread I would then be eating!

There are some good tips on books etc over at http://www.angrychicken.typepad.com/

Looking forward to hearing how your no knead bread turns out. I've yet to try it but have a friend who is a bit of an addict now.
I've made bread in my crockpot using a flower pot before. It worked surprisingly well.
As for hot cross buns, good for you! I will NEVER make them again. They take all bloody day....in & out of the oven to knead and rise. I'm a lazy bread maker. My mom was the queen of homemade bread...we NEVER had store bought growing up, so one would think I had acquired some of her talents. Nope. I cannot make a loaf look like a loaf however I have managed buns quite well.
Okay...that's enough from me about bread!
Enjoy yours!
