5-Minute Bread Recipe

I know you guys are used to reading craft posts from me but I just needed to share this bread recipe with you because I know you’ll love me for it! 😉
Ever since I discovered this recipe we’re making bread at home and we rarely ever buy it. It must be the simplest recipe on earth and the bread is absolutely delicious. And even though it doesn’t have any yeast in it, it stays soft for days! I swear! This recipe is a true gem.

Ingredients you need:

-450 g flour*
-150 ml sparkling water
-350 ml thin yoghurt
-1 tsp. salt
-20 g cream of tartar (Weinstein Backpulver in German)

* You can use any kind of flour you wish. We played around with spelt, corn, whole-wheat, buckwheat, half and half and we also added sunflower seeds, walnuts, chia seed and they were all sooo delicious!

Preheat oven to 200C. I sift the flour first because I believe it makes it even softer but you don’t have to do it. Then simply combine and mix all the ingredients together until just smooth and pour the dough into a greased loaf pan. Now bake for 30 min on 200°C and then reduce the heat to 170°C and bake for another 30 min. Tip the bread out immediately and let cool on a wire rack. That is it!

It sounds yummy and am going to try it tomorrow. By thin yoghurt, you mean low fat? What happens if you make it with full fat yoghurt? Many thanks in advance.

Hi Liliana, sorry just saw your comment now. You can use any kind of yoghurt actually, I meant the one you can drink! 😉

No worries Kathy, here they are:

-1 tsp. salt

I hope these are ok? :/

Hi, when you say sparkling water do you mean a mineral water like Perrier? Or just a carbonated water like club soda/ seltzer water? And does thin yoghurt mean unflavored, unstrained yoghurt (as in, the opposite of Greek-style yoghurt)? Thanks for helping a clueless American 🙂

Hi Robin! Yes, mineral water, exactly. And for the yoghurt – it’s the unstrained one, or even better – drinking yoghurt (unflavoured of course). xxx Polona

Thank you so much, Polona! I’m excited to make this bread with my twins 🙂

So sorry Robin, just noticed yours now as well. I mean carbonated water! And by thin yoghurt I mean unflavoured, the one you can drink if you know what I mean?

Hi Robin, yes it has to be carbonated water! 😉

3 c flour
0.63 c (a bit less than 2/3 c) sparkling water
1.47 c yogurt (I’d use 1 1/2 c full fat as it’s the only fat in the recipe)

1 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons cream of tarter

Or make carbonated water in your Soda Stream so that you don’t destroy the environment with your use of bottled water. Good grief.

Disappointed to see unnecessary use of bottled water being promoted. So wasteful and harmful to the environment. 🙁

Followed this to a t and it came out doughy inside and really flat- not at all like that beautiful golden loaf in the picture! Any suggestions?

[…] I know I already posted one bread recipe a while ago but this one is even better. Although it takes no time to make, it does contain yeast, […]
