Simple unleavened , yeast-less soft flat bread recipe. This is a great and easy to follow recipe and the bread tastes great!
Can you make bread without yeast?
What started out as an experiment- with no hope of success- turned out a lovely and delicious bread recipe. This flat bread is so easy to make, smells and tastes super delicious.
I have a to do list that is longer than Rapunzel’s hair. Some days I wake up so overwhelmed from what I should do and so frustrated from what I did not accomplish the day before. When frustration hits here is what I usually do:
1- Sit on the couch with a cup of tea or coffee, watching TV or reading a magazine- not helpful at all.
2- Do something that is not on my to do list – or at least not my urgent to do list- not the best choice either.
So this time I’ve decided to go for the second option and bake some bread. I was thinking of baking some fancy Baguette bread, when I remembered a reader’s request long time ago.
Somebody was asking me if it was possible to make flat bread without yeast !!!. Honestly I did not know and I can not think of a reason -except for allergy perhaps- for someone to want a bread without yeast.
As most of you know lat year was hard for me, so the request was forgotten unintentionally and I am really so sorry to the reader who requested this recipe. The worst part is I also cannot find the email :(. Yes, I am that disorganized, I used to be organized but somehow I lost my way this past year.
Anyways, better late than never, I’ve experimented with some ingredients and this recipe tastes the best and smells so amazingly delicious. Worth mentioning though that this recipe has no milk or eggs, so simple to make and with very few ingredients so let’s see.
In your mixer bowl, mix dry ingredients first then add olive oil and mix well.
Gradually add water, until you get a firm consistent dough. Let it rest for 30 minutes, cut into 4 equal pieces then let it rest for another 30 minutes.
Heat oven to max. put a pizza stone in or an inverted baking sheet. Roll your dough stretching it on every direction to form a 12 inch disc.
Take the baking sheet out, sprinkle with some corn meal then put the dough on it. Bake for 4 minutes poking any holes that will rise.
And that’s it. Enjoy it with as you would normally do with any flat bread. It smells so good and will make your kitchen smell fantastic!
