White No-Knead Bread Loaf Recipe

White Sandwich Bread - No-Knead bread loaf sliced

This recipe will make a large sized white sandwich loaf that is as great tasting and a great texture for sandwich bread. The crust is soft like a sandwich bread, not as crisp as traditional no-knead bread. It is so easy to make and with little time invested (unless you count the 12+ hours of rising). I believe anyone could make this no-knead white bread with great results, even without a kitchen mixer or any other special equipment.

White Sandwich Loaf No-Knead Bread

This white bread is so cheap and simple to make that there is no reason to buy white bread from the store anymore. I like wheat bread but for certain things I really like a good white bread, plus I like a variety of breads to eat. This is great for grilled cheese sandwiches and regular sandwiches.
