How to Make Bread Without Yeast – Easy Quick Bread

Watch the How to Make Bread Without Yeast – Easy Quick Bread Recipe Video

If you’re all out of yeast but in need of some soft sandwich bread, learn How to Make Bread without Yeast with this easy Quick Bread Recipe.

What is a Quick Bread?

A Quick Bread is basically any type of bread made without yeast because you do not have to give it time to rise. Instead, you simply mix your ingredients and move right on to the baking or cooking phase. You can make quick breads with baking flour, baking soda, or simply nothing more than flour and water.

A Close Second to Traditional Sandwich Bread

If you find yourself at home and need bread, but you can’t leave home for one reason or another, or if you find your grocery store is simply out of bread, then a quick bread that you bake yourself can save the day.

And if you’re short on time or if you have no yeast, it’s time to make a quick bread! This recipe is close as you are going to get to a loaf of traditional yeast-risen sandwich bread.

A Few Simple Ingredients

For this quick bread, all you need is a few simple ingredients. And the ingredients can be very flexible. You can use:

  • Any type of flour you want (or have on hand)
  • Any type of fat (butter or oil will do), and
  • Any type of liquid (In a pinch, you can even use plain water from the tap!)

Very Little Work Creates a Delicious Reward

Once you gather your ingredients, you’ll mix everything until the flour is moistened. All it takes is a gentle hand. No kneading required. As a matter of fact, you don’t want to mix this batter too much. The lumpier, the better. It really couldn’t be easier!

So watch the video, print out the recipe, and let’s get baking. In about 45 minutes, you’ll be taking a gloriously light and deliciously fresh home-baked bread out of your oven. Eat it plain, or slather it with butter and jam. Either way, it’s going to be scrumptious!

If you're all out of yeast but in need of some soft sandwich bread, learn How to Make Bread without Yeast with this easy Quick Bread Recipe.

Equipment

  • Approximately 9"X5" loaf pan, metal of glass

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups All purpose flour Substitute with bread flour, self-rising flour, or whole-grain flour.
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder Omit if using self-rising flour.
  • 1/2 teaspoon Fine ground salt Omit if using self-rising flour.
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar, optional Use any sugar, including white sugar or a more complete sugar, such as Sucant.
  • 3 large Eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups Buttermilk Substitute with milk, dairy alternative "milk", buttermilk substitute, whey, or water. If using ALL whole-grain flour, add an additional 1/4 cup of liquid for a total of 1 3/4 cups.
  • 1/2 cup Butter, melted and cooled to room temperature Substitute with other fat or oil, including ghee or clarified butter, coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado oil. Avoid highly processed oils, such a corn or canola oil.

Instructions 

  • Make sure your oven rack is placed on the middle rung, and preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare your loaf pan by generously greasing it. If you wish, you can place a piece of parchment paper on the bottom of the loaf pan and grease generously.
  • In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, and melted butter.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry ingredients, and using a spatula or wooden spoon, stir the ingredients together until the flour is completely moistened. But do not over mix. Mix just until all the flour is moistened. The batter will be lumpy.
  • Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan, and place the pan on the middle rack of your preheated 350°F oven. Bake for approximately 45 minutes. Since every oven is different, begin checking your bread at 40 minutes. It is done once the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the middle of the bread comes out clean with just a few crumbs attached. If the toothpick comes out with wet batter on it, return the bread to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Once the bread is done, using pot holders or oven mitts, remove the pan from the oven and transfer to a cooling rack. When you can handle the pan comfortably, remove the bread from the pan and allow the bread to cool completely on the cooling rack.
  • Bread may be sliced and enjoyed at this time or can be wrapped well and refrigerated. Refrigerated, the bread will stay fresh for about one week. If you wish, you may freeze this bread. Wrap well in plastic wrap, and store in a freezer-proof bag. Bread will stay fresh for about 2-3 months. Allow to defrost at room temperature before serving.

    Best quick bread recipe with self rising flour I’ve tried! It actually tasted like bread, not biscuits as most quick no yeast breads do. It rose nicely and was moist with a nice crumb i.e. it didn’t break apart and scatter all over the place when I sliced it. Nice thick slices to go with cajun steak bites and butter sauce, and great the next day with butter and apricot preserves. Will definitely make again.

    1. Mary's Nest says:

      Oh Fey! I am so happy to hear that this was a hit for you!! Love, Mary

  3. Tina Oberoi says:

    Hi. Your bread recipe is really amazing. I baked the no yeast bread it came out well but did not rise much . Also in your video you say half cup buttermilk or milk but in recipe its printed one and a half buttermilk or milk. So I am confused over the quantity of the same. Please guide. Thanks

    1. Mary's Nest says:

      Hi Tina, Please forgive me. I mis-spoke in the video but I corrected myself in the pinned comment and the written recipe. So sorry about the confusion but once a video is published, I can’t edit it without taking it down completely and starting all over again.

      As to the rise, bread baking can be persnickety! The conditions in every kitchen are different and even the weather outside can effect the rise. Sometimes you may need to find a warmer spot and give it more time. But hope you’ll try again. 🙂

  7. Rex says:

    Hi Mary,
    I can’t find yeast anywhere thank you for this recipe. What can I use in place of a buttermilk substitute?

    1. Mary's Nest says:

      Hi Rex, if you have no buttermilk, no regular milk, no yogurt, and no sour cream, you can experiment and try just using water but with some type of acid like lemon juice or vinegar. So you would use water with about a tablespoon of lemon juice or vinegar mixed in with it. Keep me posted and let me know how it turns out. Love, Mary❤️🤗❤️
