    I made this yesterday and my dough was way too thick to spoon into the baking pans. I followed the recipe but this turned out to be very hard and did not raise much despite extending the time allowed. I am going to use it for croutons so it is not wasted but certainly is not suitable for eating out of hand., Any advice?

    This is an easy, no-knead bread that is also great for sandwiches.
