No Knead Bread

coloradokid

I've been making no knead breads from various recipes, including King Arthur's and I've been greatly disappointed. For some reason, no matter what I try, all the recipes tend to taste all the same. The normal whole wheat kneaded have overall great flavor but no kneads, at least in my opinion, don't. Am I missing something? I followed the recipes exact and always come up with the same results. Does kneading any bread really make that much of a difference as far as taste?

It depends - are you letting the dough "age" in the fridge, or do you mix and bake on the same day?

I've found I actually don't like to keep the dough more than a few days because it starts developing that tang some people seem to like, reminds me of sourdough, which I hate.

If you bake and knead the same day they probably do all taste pretty much the same. Unless you're adding herbs or something most bread does taste pretty much like the next loaf anyway - it's just flour and water. NK recipes are no exception.
