Roasted garlic adds a subtle but nutty flavor to this easy no yeast bread.
A spin-off of my most popular bread recipe, this one is laced with butter and roast garlic. No yeast and no rise time!
My 2-ingredient bread has been quite popular the last few weeks. With bread sold out at many grocery stores people are resorting to making their own.
No Yeast Garlic Bread is like having the garlicky flavor of garlic baked right on into the loaf so all you need is a pad of butter and there you have it: Garlic Bread!
But if you don’t bake regularly, chances are that you also don’t have yeast. Heck, I do bake regularly and when I went to grab a packet of yeast I realized it expired in 2016.
You might be surprised how good bread can taste without fluffy yeast. This No Yeast Garlic Bread is hearty enough to make sandwiches or paninis.
How do I make quick bread?
The rustic loaf is earthy and doesn’t require any kneading, special equipment or rising time. Don’t be put off by the need for self-rising flour either.
Self-rising flour is as simple as all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. All ingredients that most people have in their pantry.
I used roasted garlic which equaled a scant 1/2 cup after it was mashed. You can use a little more or a little less. If you don’t have a head of garlic, use 1-2 teaspoons of garlic powder depending on how garlicky you like it.
Other than that, you mix it, plop it on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake it for 30-ish minutes. Form it into a round disc no more than 3 inches tall. If it is too tall, the center won’t bake all the way and the edges will be dry.
You want to avoid overworking the dough. Too much kneading will result in the gluten being overworked and the bread being tough. Therefore, I do not recommend using the bread hook attachment on your stand mixer. Do it the old-fashioned way with your hands.
Then put grooves into the bread in a cross pattern. For this loaf, they aren’t visible in the finished product, but this was also a very wet bread dough. One thing I love about this bread is that it is slightly different every time!
Tips for making no yeast homemade bread:
- Do not overwork the dough.
- Know that you might need to add more flour or liquid depending on the brand.
- Mix until slightly tacky and sticky.
- Use parchment paper to prevent sticking and burning.
- Do not form a disc taller than 3 inches.
- Make grooves in the bread.
