This delicious bread has appeared in my kitchen more times than any other bread over the past few months. It’s a variation on the Easy No Knead Peasant Bread I posted back in December and to say we are in love with it, would be a grand understatement. With hints of garlic and fresh rosemary, it smells like absolute heaven while it bakes and tastes equally as wonderful. Recently, I made it on our local morning TV program (Good Things Utah) and after tasting it, one of the hosts said…”Ma’am, this is God’s work you are doing here with this bread.” It really is so, so good and so easy!

You mix the flour, water, sugar, yeast and salt together in a bowl.

Add a bit of fresh rosemary and minced garlic.

Stir it all together until it forms a shaggy ball. Cover and let it rise for about an hour. Using a dough scraper or rubber spatula fold the ball up and over itself a few times.

Place the dough in a pie dish you’ve sprayed generously with cooking spray and let it sit for 15 minutes, uncovered, or until it’s slightly puffy.

Then bake! As I mentioned, the smell is so absolutely divine.

Hope you get a chance to try it!

No Knead Rosemary Peasant Bread

Serves: 1 large loaf (12 slices) Prep Time: Cooking Time:
Nutrition facts: NA calories NA fat
Rating: 4.5/5
( 2 voted )


  • 4 C flour (bread flour works best)
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 1 Tb instant or active dry yeast
  • 1 Tb fresh rosemary, minced
  • 2 C warm water
  • 1 tsp garlic, minced (I like to use it from a jar)


  1. Grab your flour, and before measuring out the 4 cups, toss it a bit with a fork, allowing it to fluff up and become airy. This will keep the bread from becoming too heavy.
  2. Into a large mixing bowl, place all the ingredients but the water and garlic. Toss them together with a fork.
  3. Add the garlic to the warm water and stir to combine. Add the mixture to the dry ingredients. Use a sturdy rubber spatula to mix until there are no more flour streaks and the mixture is well hydrated.
  4. Cover and allow to double in size. Should take about 60 minutes.
  5. Preheat your oven to 425 degrees and spray a 9 inch pie plate generously with cooking spray.
  6. Using a rubber spatula, scrape the dough away from the sides of the bowl and pull the bottom up and over the top several times.
  7. Spray your hands with cooking spray, then use your hands to scoop the dough up and lay it into the pie plate.
  8. Let it rest, uncovered for 15 minutes or until slightly puffy.
  9. Bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375 and continue to bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown along the top on bottom.
  10. Remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.
  11. Brush a bit of softened butter over the top of the loaf, allow it to cool for 10 more minutes, then slice and enjoy.

  1. This bread is amazing. I have made it almost every week since I discovered it. I also planted some Rosemary which takes care of the only expense there is to making it.

    Use the garlic butter spread from Sam’s Club to make the best grilled cheese ever. Thank you Jamie for perfecting this.

    1. Ember,
      I will have to try this bread for grilled cheese, I bet it’s so good! Thanks for the tip.
