Can You Make Bread Without Yeast?
Yes, absolutely! But, it’s not going to be what you know as traditional bread. That being said, it’s still very delicious and it’s homemade. For me, it’s like a big homemade biscuit. It’s dense on the inside but has rustic and crusty outside. It’s the perfect “emergency bread.”
Ingredients You’ll Need
This bread is simple to make and perfect if you don’t have yeast or simply prefer not to use it. And, you only need 3 ingredients if you don’t count the water and salt.
Here’s every thing you’ll need:
- Organic unbleached flour – I prefer Bob’s Red Mill
- Baking Powder
- Unsweetened Applesauce – use this as the oil replacement
- Salt to taste
How To Make Yeastless Bread
(Full recipe is at the bottom of this post)
- Add the flour, baking powder, and salt to a large mixing bowl. And, whisk until everything is well combined.
- Add the applesauce, but don’t stir or mix.
- Pour in the water and begin stirring with the handle of a wooden spoon until most of the ingredients are absorbed. Then, use your hands to knead the dough until the texture is consistent.
- Lightly flour a baking stone or pizza stone. If you don’t have either you can simply use a nonstick baking sheet or line one with parchment paper.
- Press the dough out into a circular shape and make sure it is no more than 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick. It will not cook all the way through if it’s too thick.
- Next, take a sharp knife and make a large “X” in the top of the dough that is about 3/4 of an inch deep.
- Finally, bake the bread for 40 minutes or until done. The bread will have more of a homemade biscuit texture and will only brown slightly on the top and around the bottom edges. Once the bread finishes baking remove it from the oven and tap the bottom. If it sounds hollow, the bread is finished.
And, there you have it. A delicious yeastless bread recipe that will satisfy your craving and make the whole family happy.
See, there’s no “knead” (see what I did there) to go out into the public while all the crazy is going on just to buy bread. Use your readily available pantry staples to make this fresh homemade bread.

Can I Make Gluten Free No Yeast Bread?
I have not yet tried to make a gluten-free version of this bread. But, oat flour or Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour would be my choice.
How Long Will No Yeast Bread Keep In The Freezer
Basically, two weeks. Remember, this is homemade bread and there are no preservatives. If you do want to freeze this bread allow it to cool completely, wrap it in plastic wrap, place it in a Ziploc bag, then seal it and toss it in the freezer.
