No-Rise Bread

I love homemade bread, but let’s face it, I don’t always have a couple of hours to get a loaf to the table. We just won’t mention the fact that I am often just not organized enough. So here it is, the most delicious quick, no-rise bread. When I say delicious, I do mean delicious. I’ve made dinner rolls, roasted tomato focaccia (forgot to snap a pic before I took my pizza wheel to it), even cinnamon rolls. From start to finish I can have some sort of bread made in less than 20 minutes, I kid you not, even with little distractions I like to call kiddos. They love to help with the very small amount of kneading and shaping and they eat it up in a snap. Today I was just too tired to bother, so instead of shaping it into individual rolls or a loaf, I just patted it out into a cookie sheet and then made one ginormous tuna sandwich to feed all six of us. I like to call it a picnic loaf, as it sounds much better than a lazy, couldn’t be bothered loaf. One of these days I am going to try using half wholemeal flour as it would be better for us, but it sure does make yummy white bread. It truly is a no work, no time, no sweat recipe that’ll knock the socks off of homemade bread lovers. Do try it, you’ll be glad you did.

  1. I always make yogurt bread. I’m a little alarmed by yeast.

    those little rolls look good, I think I’m going to try the recipe out tonight. Thanks for sharing

  3. Sue says:

    Sounds good, just one question, what sort of yeast do you use, dried or the fast action type?

  4. Jennifer says:

    Sue, I just use the dried yeast and it works great. Hope you enjoy them.

  6. Jennifer says:

    Tif, go right ahead. It’s kind of nice and very easy to make one big sandwich. Let me know how it goes.

    This is just the sort of bread recipe I need – easy & quick! Thanks for sharing. It’s been a while since I’ve made homemade bread {besides pizza dough, quick breads}. Somehow I’m just not as motivated in the warmer months.

  8. I am waiting here for dinner to arrive home, courtesy of Mr M and our lovely Indian restaurant, and that looks so yummy!

    Thanks for popping by and visiting me today. Hope to see you again soon!

    That looks seriously yum, I’m definitely going to try it out! Thanks for the recipe link!

    Jen, did you have to adjust the baking powder for the high altitude? Your photos are truly beautiful…..how great it would be to see them in a cookbook! Better than that though, is that everything you photograph tastes just as yummy as it looks!

  11. Jennifer says:

    Nope, I sure didn’t, which is really nice having a baking recipe that I don’t have to adjust. Thanks for the compliments.

  12. val says:

    This looks gorgeous bread …. and real quick! I wonder if it needs the quick yeast and actual bread flour rather than just regular flour?
    Happy 20 Minutering!
    Val

  13. Jennifer says:

    Val, you just need regular dried yeast and all purpose flour. Enjoy!

  14. Thanks so much for this Jennifer…I am getting into making bread by hand using spelt and other flours at the moment so this is a godsend…will go and try!

    I stumbled upon your blog and was so pleased to find this recipe! I supervise an after school program and try to have a variety of activities….one being bread making! The students had a blast and loved how simple it was! Their creativity shined through with all the shapes they did- star, snowman, braids, and a turtle to name a few. Thank you for posting! (^_^)

  26. Shell Rowe says:

    I made this in a dutch oven. It took as long as any brad I made in the does oven about does- 40 min. I guess that makes for the extra cooking time required?

  27. Lisa M. Calder says:

    Awesome recipe! I topped mine with garlic salt mixed in the olive oil and then sprinkled Parmesan cheese and Italian spices on the top. SO good!! I will definitely make this again! How do I pint this on Pinterest though? Thanks!
