Default No knead bread in a skillet

Ran across a video on how to bake a loaf of bread in a skillet. View artisan bread with steve. Omit the spaces and it will work. I made the bread several times and it is glorious! All during this video I kept saying this is not working. However it did work. I used a number 6 Griswold skillet. Larry

I've probably made well over a hundred loaves of this bread since DougD posted the video several months ago. Sometimes double the recipe, sometimes triple. Sometimes I've put the dough on a longish griddle for a longer shape, and sometimes in a couple R&E Mfg. #5 muffin pans for rolls. Usually though, I toss the dough in a couple skillets. I've been meaning to thank Doug for a while now...I think my family might starve if I stopped making that bread.

It clearly works, but it shouldn't.

I cook bread from scratch about twice a week. In reading bread cook books, I learned that salt inhibits yeast from proofing, so I can see why it takes 8 to 24 hours for this recipe. My recipe takes about an hour to rise. Now that doesn't mean that I totally omit salt, but it goes in last, and the yeast and water proof before I add the flour(about 5 minutes). Admittedly, I do cheat, and use a stand mixer, but I don't see much difference between my ingredients and this recipe. I knead mine once, but you could probably not and it would be fine.

Since I'm new to the CI thing, I'm intrigued about trying out bread in my 9 Griswold. I've been meaning to try olive oil out as well, as I usually use Pam. I don't know about a video, but I will report on how it turns out

And I'm sure you all noticed, but that skillet in the video is not cast iron. I think someone needs to write that guy a letter!

Stan, you are right that salt inhibits yeast from proofing. I will add the salt after the initial rise, and only 1/2 as much. Just not a salt lover. Also I use my dutch ovens, as I will bake 2 loafs at a time.
I saw this post sometime back and saw the photo of the skillet, and said this is not CI.
