I'm late to get on most bandwagons, and just made my first loaf of no-knead bread a couple of weeks ago, using this technique. I tried it again yesterday with half whole wheat, and it's even better. Seriously, great bread with no kneading?? It's magic!
I know kneading is good for stress relief and all that, but this is fabulous bread with very little effort. There's definitely room for all kinds of bread in my life.
