    Curious if anyone has ever made this type of bread before and how it turned out. I found a recipe here which looks simple enough even for me lol.

    Emergency No Yeast Bread - Bake it in a Hurry!

    I love bread, can't go a day without eating it, so I plan to try making this sometime soon, as a sort of practice run in preparation for times I run out of the packaged stuff and it's too cold and miserable to go up the road to the shops.

    Not made one myself - I'm no baker - but it does look like a quick and fun recipe.

    If you do make one - pics are always welcome.

    I made it! Attempted the 'genuine emergency, no-milk' version and it turned out a bit different from what I was expecting but it still tasted nice. For one thing, it didn't rise all that much, despite following the recipe to the letter. I'm not sure what I did wrong as the baking powder was new. It was similar to a baguette in texture, crusty on the outside and soft on the inside.

    Nice! I'll have to try that. How do you think it would do for sarnies?

    Hey congrats - glad to hear it turned out well and tasty.

    Wonder if you could use this in making baguettes as you suggest?

    @Mine all mine @CatInASuit Thanks! With the way mine turned out, it wouldn't have been good enough for a sandwich tbh. It never rose properly and the crust was a bit too...well, crusty, for my liking, but it tasted nice fresh from the oven, hot and buttered with soup for lunch. I'm not sure it would rise all that much anyway, due to the lack of yeast, but as a pseudo-baguette, sure :) I've made it a couple of times since, but with added milk and a bit more oil than the recipe states, which led to a softer and fluffier loaf.

    Thanks for sharing this, I don't really know how to bake anything, but I do intend to learn how to bake sometime in the future, so I will try this one out.
  8. I am so sure it did not rise cause bread rises due to the yeast. I have never tried to make bread without yeast despite knowing deep down that Yeast is not good for consumption, especially for us women. I love baking and I love a homemade bread more.

    Nonetheless, I can see that the bread looks very delicious. You can add butter or oil on top of the bread so that the crust does not end up being to crusty. The chef where I used to work as a pastry chef used to add egg plus some water mixed in it on the crust and the bread never had a hard crust.
    Adding some milk adds flavor to it.

    I hate to derail, but I don't get this. Eating yeast is fine seeing as once it is cooked it is dead and not capable of doing anything. I mean I'm not sure I could miss out on bread and beer.
