There are many of us who are baking at the moment as we spend our days at home, maybe to avoid having to go to the grocery store but for many of us, it is also like therapy.
Unfortunately yeast is now hard to come by, so I thought I would share this bread recipe that doesn’t call for yeast.
I always weigh my flours but in case you don’t have a scale, I added how many cups to use. Also, if you don’t have buttermilk, I provide an alternative. I used buttermilk powder but that’s usually not something most people have in their pantry.
When I made the bread yesterday, I had just run out of parchment paper, so instead I slightly greased the cookie sheet and added a little flour before I placed the dough on the sheet. If you’re out of parchment paper too, you can do the same.
When the bread comes out of the oven, you may be able to smell the baking soda but don’t worry. That dissipates and the taste is nice. When my my son tasted it, he said it tastes of something familiar. I told him it’s Irish Soda Bread and he agreed. But this bread doesn’t contain either butter or sugar.
Give it a go!
