Baked Good of the Month – Yeastless Bread

This month I went for something not sweet, because I’ve had the recipe for a while.  I have yeast now, but when I looked for this recipe, I didn’t have yeast, and wanted to know if I could make bread without yeast.  I found a country style bread recipe I’ve had saved for months, and decided to give it a go!  I’m surprised that you can use baking powder instead of yeast to make bread, it comes out exactly the  same to me.

All in all, it is a really good recipe!  It’s super flexible, too:    You need 1 and ½ cups of any liquid for it, but it literally can be any liquid.  If you want a tea time bread, use a juice, want a more traditional biscuit taste, use milk or water (can be non-dairy milk, also) and the same goes for the fat you need to use.  You need ¼ of a cup of a fat, so like oil or butter.  I opted to use vegetable oil.  My brother says he likes the taste of the bread with the oil, but I think next time I’m going to try using butter because I’m not a huge fan of being able to taste the vegetable oil in the bread.  Other than that, it comes out really flaky and tastes great!  It’s an awesome base recipe, like I said, and I can’t wait to do other t hings with it, like dust the bread with sugar and cinnamon or actually use juice as a liquid.  One of my favorite things is getting a super flexible recipe  (like my cookie bar recipe) and using it a ton of different ways.  I’m sort of running out of recipes to try that I haven’t done already, so I really need to look for some more haha.  I have a few different cookies I haven’t done, and some different ways to make cheesecake, and pies and banana bread I really want to do. Oh, also custard!  So I guess when I think about it, I do have a lot of things I want to bake still XD
