Country Style Yeast Free Bread

September17

Zeke found this one for me on the Internet somewhere – sorry I can’t give it it’s due credit, but I changed it a bit anyway…

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour – I used 1/2 Whole Wheat and 1/2 Unbleached White
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups soy milk
  • 1/4 cup Earth Balance

Directions

  1. Mix dry ingredients. (Don’t sift flour)
  2. Mix liquids and add to dry ingredients. Stir until there is no more dry flour.
  3. Depending on the humidity of the air where you live you may need a little bit more or less liquid.
  4. The dough should be moist but not sticky.
  5. It may take a few minutes for the flour to fully absorb the liquid, so don’t rush to add liquid or flour to it.
  6. Score lightly the surface in a diamond or X shape to prevent splitting of the crust.
  7. This is a country style bread that should be sliced thick.
  8. It is important not to overwork the dough.
  9. Shape into a ball or an oval, with oiled hands.
  10. Place on clean baking sheet.
  11. Bake for 40 minutes at 400F.
  12. Variations: Rub the dough ball with virgin olive oil and sprinkle sea salt and oregano for a focaccia flavor.
  13. For tea time add a tsp pure cane sugar.
  14. The liquid can be replaced for orange or other fruit juice if the bread is to be used for teatime and you can even add dried chopped fruits.
  15. For a savory bread the liquid can be tomato juice and you can add chopped sun-dried tomatoes to the dough.
  16. Sprinkling of seeds in the dough or on top of the bread is also possible.

I brushed the uncooked ball of dough with Olive Oil and sprinkled Sea Salt. It came out pretty yummy.
