Koko 11/3/13 17:52

My kind of bread- it looks so healthy, and I love the no-proofing technique.

Kitcheninspirations 11/3/13 18:12

Hi Angie, do you think I could use quick rising yeast instead of the fresh? I'm not entirely certain I would know where to purchase fresh.

Treat and Trick 11/3/13 18:28

Your loaf looks superb! I love this easy method....

Kathy 11/3/13 18:35

Wow! I love the ease of this bread, Angie! Simply a beautiful loaf!

Amy 12/3/13 04:35 easy is that? I make bread all the time and I've never tried something to healthy and easy to prepare. Best part is no waiting. :) Can't wait to give this a try.

Gina Stanley 12/3/13 05:11

That is an easy way to do bread. I guess I have no more excuses, huh. Love all the seeds in it too. This sounds perfect for me since I love a piece of whole grain toast for breakfast. Happy Monday.

kitchen flavours 12/3/13 05:40

Wow, so easy! I love seeds in breads, yes, definitely perfect for breakfast, a healthy way to start the day!

MunatyCooking 12/3/13 16:59

I'm all for whole/multi grain breads these days, it's my new best friend now. The recipe is simple and the loaf looks great. Need to get some sunflower seed and hopefully will make it in the weekend. Thanks Angie :)

Unknown 12/3/13 20:43

Angie this bread is beautiful! I need to try more spelt.

what a hearty loaf! bread-making isn't terribly complicated, but even i appreciate a shortcut now and then. :)

Unknown 12/3/13 21:50

Looks delicious and nutritious, very yummy!

Gourmet Getaways 12/3/13 21:53

I love the look of this bread... it is just packed with flavour and goodness. I feel really slack always making bleach flour breads. It might be time to mend my ways ;) this looks so much tastier :)

Wow! What gorgeous slices of bread!

Maddie 13/3/13 03:49

I just made this and its amazing! So easy and quick. I had it fresh out of the oven smothered in chipotle coconut cream, and garlic spinach and mushrooms. Divine! I love the nuttiness and savory taste that the fresh yeast gives it! Thank you so much! I'd love to see it in cup measurements but i can just jot that down if i wanted

The Yum List 13/3/13 03:49

Strawberries and rocket look like the perfect toppings.

Carol @ Always Thyme to Cook 13/3/13 04:44

Really healthy and nutritious bread..

frost 13/3/13 10:27

wow! that looks so good!

Gintare @Gourmantine 13/3/13 10:55

Great recipe, Angie, I bake my sourdough bread in cold oven too (though it needs 12 hours of rising before), but It's so easy when you don't have to wait for the oven to warm up.

Barbara 13/3/13 13:42

That sure simplifies things, Angie. Looks like a delicious loaf!

Fern @ To Food With Love 13/3/13 14:07

That bread looks so perfect! Love everything, especially the strawberry topping one!

Such a beautiful bread, and your photos are so lovely Angie! Great recipe, thanks for sharing.

Stephanie @ Henry Happened 13/3/13 15:23

What?! I had no idea baking bread was so easy! You can just dump it into a pan and bake? Sweet!!

My Little Space 13/3/13 15:25

Hmm.... Am drooling on yours! Gosh,I sure miss my homemade bread so much. Hope I have more time. You have a great day dear.

Nisa Homey 13/3/13 16:08

Wow this looks great Angie. I am going to bring some spelt flour home from work and give it a try. I bet mine doesn't look like yours

Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies 14/3/13 00:28

You don't even have to preheat the oven?! I've never heard of that before--how cool! And easy. This is a bread I could definitely manage to make. :)

Cooking Quidnunc 14/3/13 01:31

Such a marvelous cook, this bread looks perfect!

wok with ray 14/3/13 01:35

I love that stack of bread with those strawberries. Beautifully done, Angie! :)

Beautiful bread Angie-I'm drooling over this sandwich ;-)

Dawn @ Words Of Deliciousness 14/3/13 04:07

Your bread looks beautiful. Sounds like it would be easy to make.

TasteHongKong 14/3/13 06:49

With such ease? And so healthy! Thanks for sharing.

Cheat 14/3/13 13:14

This looks fantastic!

Cathy at Wives with Knives 14/3/13 14:44

How wonderful that all the usual steps can be avoided and the bread goes right into a cold oven. What a time saver. It's a beautiful loaf, Angie, and so healthy too!

Gill 14/3/13 15:40

This is a brilliant recipe Angie! I have never heard of such a method before. I made it this morning as I had everything in my cupboards and it was really good.It saved me going to the shops for bread! :)I used white wine vinegar instead of raspberry vinegar but it came out well, so I assume this substitution is fine. I am going to experiment with a plain white loaf soon to see if it works as well as this seedy spelt one. Have you done this? Thank you.

Angie's Recipes 14/3/13 17:37

@Gill Gill, I am so glad that you enjoyed the bread and the recipe as much as I do. And no, I haven't experiment with white dough. I meant if it's a white loaf, I would prefer it soft and light.

Anonymous 14/3/13 18:23

Ohh this bread is amazing! and don't even get me started on that strawberry balsamic sandwich. Drooling over here.

Anonymous 14/3/13 18:56

This wholegrain spelt bread looks like a real winner's bread! I love it! You know that I am a big fan of spelt too!


The Squishy Monster 14/3/13 19:08

You make this bread making thing look SO easy it!

mjskit 15/3/13 03:04

Didn't see the raspberry vinegar coming. I bet that adds a bite and a touch of flavor. No kneading, no proofing. That alone sounds good to me, but the recipe sounds absolutely delicious!

Gerry @Foodness Gracious 15/3/13 05:58

Seriously?? Sounds amazing and chunky just how I like my loaves :)

Vicki Bensinger 15/3/13 06:01

Fabulous healthy loaf. I love your sandwich, colorful, tasty and nutritious.

Joanne 15/3/13 15:50

You got an awesome rise out of that loaf! It looks wonderful!

MaryMoh 15/3/13 20:46

Oh wow....that looks really easy. I always hate waiting for the bread to proof. This is just perfect for someone lazy or impatient like me :D Thanks very much for sharing.

Kiran @ 15/3/13 22:10

Oh my gosh! No proofing is a life saver! I'd bake more breads that way :)

Unknown 16/3/13 13:03

this bread is gougeous

Sonia ~ Nasi Lemak Lover 18/3/13 13:16

Love this quick and healthy bread but I can't make now since I have yet to find fresh yeast near by my area.,

Anonymous 19/3/13 15:45

Sonia - you can make it with 20g fast action dry yeast. Worked a treat for me. Excellent recipe for a super speedy loaf Angie. It goes against all the rules of making bread but works and I love the flavour from the spelt and the seeds.

Janine 20/3/13 03:47

wow this sounds like an awesome quick bread. now i just need to find fresh yeast :/ will other types of yeast work as well?

Anonymous 20/3/13 17:22

I used 20 g fast action (instant) dry yeast - just stirred it in with the flour and it worked for me! :D

Unknown 23/3/13 15:37

Now, this is a bread I can make!! I usually lack in the patience department, so making bread can be a chore for me... this sounds like the perfect solution!!!

Devaki 24/3/13 16:45

What a concept! That lookds just incredible Angie and your stawberry balsamic sandwich is ooh la la!

chow! Devaki @ weavethousandflavors

Kelly @ Hidden Fruits and Veggies 25/3/13 20:32

Wow! This looks amazing and comes together quick. I've never heard of a cold oven method before

Unknown 26/3/13 15:26

This week I baked bread everyday (I try to find the 'perfect loaf'! I am quite tired of kneading + proofing + proofing again...this could be my bread this weekend...out and buy some spelt flour!

Anonymous 26/3/13 20:31

Love the photos! This is my favorite "quick" bread recipe. I call it the "wish bread" because my family always picks what to add. This bread is great with any combination flour and seeds, but also with raisins, a shredded carrot or some roasted onions.. :)

Amelia 27/3/13 15:10

Hi Angie, your bread always look very professional. Great to go with coffee!

Have a great week ahead,regards.

JJ - 84thand3rd 28/3/13 13:36

This sounds like the perfect bread recipe! I can't wait to try it

Anonymous 31/3/13 11:58

Thank you for posting this unique recipe. I made this and thought tt was tasty but quite dense and I prefer normal bread. I am going to make the Jim Lahey no knead Dutch oven bread this week. Have you made it Angie? Thank you. Angela in Boston.

Angie's Recipes 31/3/13 20:36

@AnonymousYes, this is a 100% wholewheat, so it's rather dense.
I do remember I baked no knead bread a couple of years ago, but don't remember whose recipe I used. I think it's from NY Times.

Anonymous 7/4/13 12:35

Love the simplicity of this recipe - and the bread has such a beautiful crumb!

Bread & Companatico 7/4/13 21:17

actually I may even give it a try tonight. just realized we are out of bread... and I'd love to include one of your breads in our biweekly showcase (check out my page for "panissimo"). Barbara
