About Me

  • Hello! Thank you so much for visiting me in the Attic, it's lovely to see you. My name is Lucy and I'm a happily married Mum with three children.

It worked!!! Thank you so much for the UK version of the recipe. Have made cranberry bread, cheese bread, and cinnamon/sugar swirl bread. Just waiting for my first wholemeal experiment to rise: 150g wholemeal, rest plain white, then 90g walnuts.

I am slicing the loaf when it is coolish (about 8 thick slices plus crusts), then freezing in ziplock bags. Defrosts beautifully. Also toasts well from defrosted.


yum! looks so delicious :) I will do tonight morning we have fresh bread and enjoy with my homemade strawberry jam I will every bite remember who the bread recipe came from. Thank you...

You should try "No Knead Peasant Bread." It does not require any pre-heating of the pot so it's a lot less dangerous. It's delicious and can be made right in a pyrex bowl! There's a nice video that goes with it so it is incredibly easy to follow. It also only needs 1 and 1/2 hours to rise so you can put it together at 2 and have it with your soup at 6. :)

I came over from link on Northern Mum Down South. I love making bread, and the no-knead-bread-in-a-pot is always a hit. But right now I'm on a sourdough kick. Have you tried that?

Thanks for this lovely recipe, just as easy as you describe. My crust came out rather hard though - any suggestions? I do have a fan-assisted oven, do I need to adjust the time/temp? Would really appreciate your advice! Thanks, Sarah


Oh dear! Mine is like a crumpet

Tastes nice but hasn't risen!
The baking paper went on fire! Something like Keystone Cops but at least I'm still smiling and another lot is proving! Not giving up! I have RA and I A and as my hands are disabled this is a great chance for me to enjoy my creativity.... Praise God for crochet, gardening, walking and the many things I refuse to give up on... Cheers


This bread is fabulous. Created by the owner of the famous Sullivan Street Bakery in NYC.
My DIL, makes it all the time and I just bought a cast iron pot.

I'm gobsmacked at this, how did you not knead it and create such a yummy looking loaf of bread?! I salute you sir!


Thank you for this recipe - I've been driving myself demented trying to work out cup measurments to grams and mls and getting conflicting info - making this bread every day and my boys and hubby love it - delicious with roasted peppers and feta mixed in too !


Hi, I love this bread, but am struggling with the paper! It sticks to the bread when it bakes and I can't get it off. Tried using a strip of paper and thats just the same. I'm using greaseproof, but think this might be the prob. What is the UK product that I need to buy please?x


I'm finally giving this a go. The pot and lid r heating up and the dough is rising a second time. I sure hope this works -- I used half white flour and half whole wheat flour. Also used yeast labeled specially for whole grain. My fingers r crossed!


I AM anxious to give this a try! Any idea where I could find a conversion chart for your UK measures to American cups and teaspoons full? It looks soooo yummy!


I adored your breads so many times that I just ordered a pot to make my own. Hopefully the pot will be here sooooonn...

Take care,


I have a new habit. Every Saturday evening I prepare the dough, every Sunday morning I make this bread. I love being up at 7 knowing I have the kitchen to myself for a while, and our Sunday breakfast is delicious beyond words.

Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for sharing your wonderful recipe.

I've read about this recipe in several places, yours looks way better than most I've seen so I'm gonna do it, in fact I have half done it as its sitting doing its magical jiggerry pokery in the living room.
My dilemma is this, I don't own a lidded stone or glassware pot, when casseroling I use my slow cooker. Can I use a metal lidded oval roasting tin? Or do I have to try to balance one terracotta pan upside down on the bread filled one? Hmmmmm.

Yay! Baked my bread this morning & now enjoying a slice with butter for lunch, yummy (thumbs up from my little one too)! Thank you for sharing such an excellent a recipe :-)

Sounds fantastic, your talents know no bounds Lucy. Thanks for sharing


I am now baking this bread everyday as it's sooo easy and delicious. It only lasts the day as everyone just gobbles it up. Thanks so much for the recipe:-)

So. I have done the salt, yeast and flour mix. Under the influence of wine and gin. Wonder how this turns out tomorrow...


Thank-you for turning me on to this bread. Your blog was the first place I heard of it and I LOVE it! Can't stop making it. I'm so glad I found you.


So easy and not as messy as it sounded. Our bread was lovely!

Hi Lucy, I've followed you blog for years but have never had the guts to write a comment! Just want to say how wonderful everything is and how inspiring you and your projects are. Also a quick question, if you want to make a larger loaf, is iyt ok to double the ingredients? Much love Elena

Thank you for posting this recipe, and the link to where you found it! I have made bread once before, and although it tasted delicious, it didn't look fabulous (which is fine, but you know… it's nice when it's pretty, too). Also, the recipe was easy, but the timing for it was tricky. And so I just never made it again. But then you posted this, and it just looked so easy! I made the dough Sunday and baked a loaf of bread yesterday, and it was fabulous!!! So last night I started more dough rising, and just popped it in the oven today! I can tell that this is going to be a very regular thing in our household, and I can't wait to start experimenting with different flavors. Thank you!


I've found that I can avoid most of the gloppy hands issue by disengaging the dough from the bowl and shaping it with a rubber spatula.
