Quick Bread without Yeast

A quick bread is a bread that is made without yeast and can be prepared and baked with minimal time needed. This quick bread recipe can be made savoury or sweet.

All you will need is:

Lamb Brand Self-Raising Flour, 500g

Lamb Brand Bicarbonate of Soda, 1 1/2 tsp.

Lamb Brand Sunflower Seeds, 3 tbsp

Lamb Brand Salt, 1/2 -1 tsp.

Buttermilk, 400-450ml

All you have to do is:

  1. Preheat the oven to 220C. 
  2. Brush a baking tray lightly with olive oil or use non stick baking spray 
  3. Sieve the self raising flour twice into a large bowl, add the bicarbonate of soda and salt. 
  4. Make a well in the centre and pour in most of the buttermilk. Keep your hand stiff and your fingers spread out like a claw and start to mix the buttermilk into the flour mixture using a slow and firm circular motion. 
  5. Add the remaining buttermilk if necessary and keep mixing like this until you have a soft dough. Do not knead it but very gently bring it together. 
  6. Place on a baking tray and use a sharp knife and cut a large deep cross on the surface. 
  7. Brush lightly with olive oil or baking spray and sprinkle with sunflower seeds. 
  8. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes at 220 C then reduce the heat to 200C and bake for a further 25-30 minutes. 
  9. Remove the loaf from the oven and while it is still hot, brush very lightly with olive oil over the top and allow to cool slightly before cutting and serving.
