Our easiest-ever white bread requires absolutely no kneading. Simply fold the dough into a torpedo shape, let rise, then bake! Serve with our Slow Cooker Apple Butter (link to the recipe, below).

Prep time 35 minutes
Total time 15 hours
Portion size 24 servings

INGREDIENTS
6 cups white bread flour (approx)
2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon quick-rising instant dry yeast
2 1/2 cups warm water (100°F)
1 tablespoon cornmeal

METHOD
In a large bowl, whisk together 5 cups of the flour, the salt, and yeast. Stir in warm water until well combined; cover with plastic wrap. Let rise in warm draft-free place until doubled in size, about 12 hours. 
(Make-ahead: Let rise for up to 18 hours.)
Sprinkle work surface with 1/3 cup of the remaining flour. Scrape dough onto work surface; sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the remaining flour. Cover with a tea towel. Let stand for 15 minutes.
Using floured hands, press dough into a 1-inch thick circle. Fold dough, 1 1/2 inches from edge farthest from you, pressing with hands; repeat folding, pressing into a torpedo shape. Pinch seams to seal.
Dust rimless baking sheet with cornmeal. Place dough, seam side down, on pan; cover with clean tea towel. Let rise until doubled in size, about 1 1/2 hours.
Using scissors, cut 3 slashes crosswise on the surface of the dough. Sprinkle with 1 tbsp of the remaining flour. Bake in 425°F oven for 10 minutes. Decrease heat to 375°F; bake until lightly golden and loaf sounds hollow when tapped, about 30 minutes. Serve warm or let cool on a rack. 

(Make-ahead: Let cool completely; wrap in plastic wrap. Freeze in a resealable freezer bag for up to 3 weeks; thaw in the bag at room temperature. Reheat in 325°F oven until warm, about 5 minutes.)

Tip from The Test Kitchen: Your microwave is the ideal place to let the dough rise quickly. It's well insulated so it can protect the yeast from any drafts during fermentation.
