Yeast-Free Bread

After this batch of successful bread making without using any yeast, it motivates me to make more bread in the future !! :) great aromatic of the bread during the baking process too! The dough can also be rolled into flat disc to make a pizza base. This recipe really saves a lot of time as no proofing is needed and though not as fluffy as normal yeast bread but is still soft.

Mix dried cranberries with some natural yoghurt to get the filling....

Basic Yeast-Free Bread Dough
(makes about 13 small rolls)
  • 350gm plain flour
  • 12gm baking powder
  • 20gm sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 80gm egg, lightly beaten
  • 125gm natural yoghurt (use Pauls brand)
  • 80gm fresh cream (I used Bulla Pure Cream)
  • some beaten egg yolks for brushing the surface (optional)
  1. Sift plain flour & baking powder into a mixing bowl. Stir in sugar & salt. Make a well in the centre of the bowl.
  2. Pour the wet ingredients into the well. With a scraper, mix in flour gradually into the wet ingredients.
  3. When a dough is almost form, knead the dough till smooth. The dough should not be sticky to the hands.
  4. Divide dough into 50gm each and wrap with fillings of your preferance.
  5. Baked in preheated oven at 200 deg cel for 15 mins or until golden brown.
* Note : all wet ingredients must be in room temperature.

Hi Peng,

Very tempting to try this yeast-free bread making...where can I get Bulla Pure cream? Thanks


Peng said...

Hi Lovingkids...pure cream can be purchased at local major supermarkets :)

Hi Peng, din manage to find the pure cream near my work place. Wonder if I can just replace fresh cream with Yoghurt? Meaning 205g Yoghurt instead of 125gm Yoghurt + 80g fresh cream ? Thanks- Lovingkids.

Lovingkids...cannot cos the bread needs some 'grease' for correct texture & taste. Fully replace with yoghurt will make the bread taste bland..

Peng said...

Hi Peng

What would have gone wrong when u get dense and dry bread? What will be the critical step to achieve crusty and soft? Lovingkids

Peng said...

Hi lovingkids..try to knead the dough till smooth and bake at the recommended temp 200 deg cel. If the dough is dry, u can try adding some more yoghurt or cream.
