bread in a pot

Jim Lahey's famous no-knead bread recipe is all over the internet and a lot of people swear by how tasty it is and how easy it is to make. You basically start the dough a full day before you bake it and let it sit at room temperature to ferment. Here's my dough ready to ferment:
When the dough is ready, you plop it into a dutch oven (though I'm sure any heavy oven-proof pot will work)and bake it for 45 minutes. Here's my bread after baking:
This bread was such a surprise. Crackly crust, bubbly innards and a nice yeasty flavour. It will definitely go down as one of the easiest breads I've ever made. I'll be happily making paninis with this loaf all week.
