Ready for the easiest most delicious homemade bread ever? This No-Knead No-Yeast Homemade Bread with Olive Oil & Herbs is just that. Made with the most basic ingredients, loaded with amazing flavors and done in 1 hour.
What makes this bread so special, is the whole no-knead no-yeast deal. Many people are intimidated when working with yeast and/or ponder if they are kneading the dough correctly. With this recipe, all those worries go out the window 🙂 .
To make this homemade bread, I used a 9 x 5 inch baking pan. The secret here is to make sure you grease it all over, that way the bread doesn´t stick to the pan once it´s baked. I used extra virgin olive oil to grease the pan, but you can use any standard nonstick spray as well.
TIPS & TRICKS to make this Recipe: It took me exactly 55 minutes to bake this bread. I used a typical coventional oven. Every oven heats differently, so it might take you 50 minutes or 1 hour. Once you think the bread looks done, take it out of the oven, pierce it with a toothpick, if it comes out cleanly, it´s perfectly baked. Otherwise, add back to the oven. If you feel your bread is going to fall apart because you over-cooked it, wrap it in saran wrap for 15 minutes. The moisture will help settle the bread for easy slicing.
Key Ingredients & Cookware I used in this Recipe:

No-Knead No-Yeast Homemade Bread with Olive Oil & Herbs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour 256 grams
- 1 tsp baking powder 4 grams
- 1 tsp sea salt 5.9 grams
- 1/2 tbsp dried thyme 1.37 grams
- 1/2 tbsp dried rosemary 1.67 grams
- 1/2 tbsp dried parsley .81 grams
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil 30 ml
- 1 1/4 cups water 310 ml
Add 2 cups all-purpose flour into a large bowl, a generous teaspoon of baking powder, 1 teaspoon of sea salt. 1/2 tablespoon dried thyme, 1/2 tablespoon dried rosemary and 1/2 tablespoon dried parsley, mix all the dry ingredients until well combined
Next add in 1 1/4 cups water and 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, mix all the ingredients together, the mixture should end up between a stiff dough and a batter, once well combined, continue to mix for another minute to 2 minutes, this helps release some of the gluten strands in the flour to give this quick bread more of a classic bread texture
Grease a 9 x 5 inch baking pan with some extra virgin olive oil, add in the dough mixture, evenly spread out and make sure it´s in a flat layer, add into a preheated oven, bake only option, 190 C - 375 F, after 50 to 60 minutes the bread should be perfectly baked (it took me 55 minutes), remove from the oven, insert a toothpick in the middle, if it comes out cleanly the bread is perfectly baked, remove the bread loaf from the pan and transfer to a wire rack, let it sit for 15 minutes and serve
