Unleaved bread will never be like a loaf of Warburtons lol! If not soda bread, then you're looking at something like Matza which looks very unexciting!
What about these - Easy Bread Without Yeast
If you have a craving for some delicious bread but can't have any yeast, have no fear. There are plenty of yeast-free bread options available to you.
Many people who adhere to yeast-free diets opt to make their own breads however most people think that making homemade bread is a long process that takes a good deal of time.
The truth is that yeast-free bread can be made easily in under an hour. Just follow the simple recipes below that you can make in 45 minutes or less.
1 cup cornmeal, 1 egg, 1 teaspoon baking powder, salt, 1 tablespoon shortening
First, preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Mix cornmeal, salt and shortening in a bowl and a small amount of boiling water and keep adding it until it creates a paste. Add egg and baking powder and continue mixing. Place entire mixture in a in a greased pan and bake for 20 minutes. Allow the bread to cool and serve. Another simple receipe:
2 1/2 cups self-rising flour, 3 tablespoon white sugar, 1 1/2 oz. can of carbonated lemon-lime soda
To begin, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Next, Combine the flour, sugar and soda. Put the mixture in the greased pan.
Bake the mixture for 45 minutes. Note: If the soda you use contains sugar, lessen the amount of sugar used in the recipe.
2. Yeast Free Bread Ingredients:
Yeast Free Bread Recipe:
- 3 cups of Gluten and Wheat Free Bread Flour (could do a mix of rye flour, rice flour - depending on intolerance’s)
- 2tsp Gluten Free Baking Powder
- 1tsp Salt
- 1/4 Cup Olive Oil
- 1 1/2 Cups Liquid (Soya Milk, Rice Milk etc)
- Optional: seeds, 2 tsp Free From Tomato Pesto
In a bowl mix the dry ingredients.
Then slowly add the olive oil and chosen liquid, stirring add, until you get a dough slightly sticky consistency. For extra taste at this point I added a dolop of Pesto (small experiment).
I then placed all my ingredients in a bread baker and sprinkled over a few sesame seeds. I baked the dough mixture on the bake only option for 40 mins, using instructions for a Yeast Free bread; encasing the breadmaker bowl in grease proof paper.
If you want to bake in the oven, place the dough in a rounded shape on grease proof paper and bake at 200 oc for 40mins
For both options cook the Yeast Free Bread until the crust is hard and you can poke a knife cleanly into the bread (I am sure there is a more techy way to say that but my mind is blocked).
(BTW ive copied and pasted the above, ive not cooked them yet)
I think its the Dry (ish) consistancy that my friend doesnt like, more dough taste please lol
