No-Fuss Overnight Bread Recipe: A Simple Delight

Get ready for the enchanting scent of homemade bread without the fuss! Our easy recipe uses just a few ingredients and a touch of patience. The magic happens as the dough rests overnight in the fridge, resulting in a delightful loaf. Let's dive into the simplicity of creating delicious bread with minimal effort! 🍞✨


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 packet (2 1/4 teaspoons) dry yeast

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water (around 110°F or 43°C)


1. Mixing the Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour and salt. In a separate bowl, dissolve the dry yeast in warm water. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the yeast mixture.

2. Kneading the Dough: Gently mix the ingredients until a dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for about 8-10 minutes or until it becomes smooth and elastic.

3. Refrigerate Overnight: Once the dough has risen, punch it down and shape it into a loaf. Place it in a lightly greased loaf pan, cover it with plastic wrap, and let it rest in the refrigerator overnight. This slow rise will enhance the flavor and texture of the bread.

4. Preparing for Baking: The next day, preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Remove the dough from the refrigerator and let it come to room temperature while the oven heats.

5. Baking: Bake the bread for 25-30 minutes or until it has a golden-brown crust and sounds hollow when tapped on the bottom.

6. Enjoy: Allow the bread to cool before slicing. Serve it with your favorite spreads or enjoy it warm with a pat of butter.

This simple overnight bread recipe promises a delightful, homemade loaf with minimal effort. The slow fermentation in the fridge results in a rich flavor and a soft, airy texture that's perfect for any occasion. Slice, savor, and share the joy of homemade bread with this easy-to-follow recipe!
