If you don’t want to go without your daily bread, you can bake your own loaf. To do this, you only need a few basic ingredients that everyone usually has on hand at home. What these are and how you can bake your own bread – without yeast – in no time is explained below.

Which type of flour you choose is entirely up to you – the following recipe works just as well with wheat, spelled or wholemeal flour:

The ingredients:

If you like, you can also incorporate various grains such as sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds or linseed into the dough – take a handful of each. You also need a suitable form for baking bread; alternatively, you can also use a bread maker. He does all the work for you.

The preparation:

If you don’t have baking powder on hand, you can also use baking soda. This is an essential component of baking powder, but it can also act as a leavening agent in its pure form. It is important for you to know that baking soda can only be used as a substitute for baking powder if the dough contains an acidic ingredient – for example buttermilk. The chemical reaction between baking soda and an acidulant forms carbon dioxide, which causes the dough to expand. If you want to make bread this way, you will need half a teaspoon of baking soda and as much buttermilk as flour. The correct mixing ratio is 1:1 so that the bread dough can rise even without baking powder.
