Overnight Artisan Bread

This bread is so fancy and delicious it will quickly become your favorite recipe! Make it in under 10 minutes, let it rise overnight and pop it in the oven in the morning. Use it to make sandwiches, croutons or garlic bread. This recipe does not disappoint. Unfortunately I discovered this one week before receiving the news that I am allergic to wheat! I will be testing out this recipe with some different all purpose gluten free flour over the next couple of weeks. In the  meantime, if you are a gluten lover like me and can indulge, make this bread!

  1. Hey beautiful!!!

    One question, if I were to make this in the morning to serve for dinner time; what it the amount of time for rising that would suffice instead of overnight?

    Love you! Keep up the amazing work!!!
