The EASIEST No-Knead Bread Ever + Avocado Toast

March 21, 2016

Nothing beats warm, fresh-out-of-the-oven bread paired with a steaming mug of freshly brewed coffee for breakfast. Now you do not need to live next to a bakery to get your fill of of fresh bread in the morning because this bread is super easy to make (I'm not exaggerating, I swear!) - no kneading or mixer required.

I found this recipe on King Arthur Flour's Facebook page. At first I was skeptical but I followed the recipe anyway with very low expectations. My first attempt on crusty bread, a sourdough bread, was kind of a disaster - it was not sour at all and I burnt the crust. So I did not expect anything good to come out of this attempt, something edible yes, but nothing to write home about. But OMG. This recipe is the bomb.

The bread's crust was perfect - crackly and crunchy, and the inside was so soft and moist. The bread that came out of our oven looked legit! Just look at the photos. And aside from being super easy, this recipe only needs four (4) ingredients: all-purpose flour, yeast, salt, and water. I mean, come on. Can it get any easier than that?

Detailed, step-by-step instructions on how to make this bread are outlined HERE on the King Arthur Flour website. I couldn't possibly improve on their post (tips and instructions) so I will just redirect you to their website. Just to be clear, I am in no way affiliated with King Arthur Flour and I am sure they do not know I exist, haha.

This bread is perfect for just about any sandwich but I like it best for avocado toast. Say whaaat? Coming from the Philippines, I grew up eating avocados for dessert (diced, mixed with some milk and sugar, and then frozen) so eating avocados in savory food was foreign to me. But last year, my bestfriend J asked me if I've heard of "avocado toast" and I was like, "what do you mean avocado TOAST?" And so the hunt for some avocado toast began.

I finally found some in San Francisco's Mazarine Coffee and damn was it good! So good that I dragged M to Mazarine so he can try it too.

I loved it so much that I decided to make my own version at home, simply because I can't go to Mazarine every single day. The 2-hr commute alone would drive me nuts if I do. Anyway, I did not know what the red/purply disks were (now I know that they're slices of watermelon radish) so I skipped them. So basically, this is the lazy girl's avocado toast.

This avocado toast made with the homemade bread above is the bomb. Creamy, tangy, and overall really tasty. It's my go-to breakfast whenever we have avocados at home. Of course you can make this with any other type of bread too. Do try it! You will not be disappointed. And do let me know what you think in the comments below.

Lazy Girl's Avocado Toast Print Recipe
Recipe from Chassiness, makes 2 servings
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 4 slices toast (make your own bread from the KAF link)
  • some cream cheese
  • half a lemon
  • pinch of salt and pepper to taste
  • chili flakes (optional)
  1. Smear some cream cheese on your toast. Don't go crazy with the cream cheese though.
  2. Scoop out chunks of avocado and place them on top of the cream cheese. If you want something more fancy, thinly slice the avocado and arrange the slices in a neat layer on top of the cream cheese.
  3. Squeeze some lemon juice on top of the avocado.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper to taste. Add chili flakes if you want it a little hot and spicy (highly recommended). Enjoy!
