Yeast Free Bread Recipe

I have been frustrated this last few week after finding out not only can I not have yeast and wheat. I also cant have gluten or eggs. So have been struggling to make use of my fantastic Breadmaker. So today armed with this new challenge I have done it and hurrah my Yeast Free Free Bread works and not only is this bread yeast free its:

Egg Free Bread, Gluten Free Bread, Wheat Free bread and Dairy Free Bread.

So it’s a truly Free From bread. Food can be fun and tasty again, with some few tweaks. So here goes this is my Yeast Free Bread Recipe:

Yeast FREE bread

Yeast FREE bread

Yeast Free Bread Ingredients:

NB I did 1 cup of Rye Flour as I am trying a little in my diet (hence the breads colour)

Yeast Free Bread Recipe:

In a bowl mix the dry ingredients.

Then slowly add the olive oil and chosen liquid, stirring add, until you get a dough slightly sticky consistency. For extra taste at this point I added a dolop of Free From Tomato Pesto (small experiment).

I then placed all my ingredients in a bread baker and sprinkled over a few sesame seeds. I baked the dough mixture on the bake only option for 40 mins, using instructions for a Yeast Free bread; encasing the breadmaker bowl in grease proof paper.

If you want to bake in the oven, place the dough in a rounded shape on grease proof paper and bake at 200 oc for 40mins

For both options cook the Yeast Free Bread until the crust is hard and you can poke a knife cleanly into the bread (I am sure there is a more techy way to say that but my mind is blocked).

That’s it place the Yeast Free Bread on a wire rack to cool. Or if you love hot bread then cut a slice and enjoy!

I will let you know how my toast goes in the morning, can’t wait to try it but for my lunch this Yeast Free Bread Recipe has been a great success, one I will be trying again.

    It has taken some searching but at last I found a bread recipe I can eat! I am on a wheat free, gluten free, dairy free, sugar free, red meat free, shelfish free, caffeine free diet! It’s to help acne I have suffered with for 20 years and after only two weeks I can’t believe the result. It was so difficult the first few days but when I could see an immediate difference to my skin and my general health, it spurred be on. It made me realise how much of my diet contained bread, sugar and cheese. If I can have a bread of sorts then I will be happy. I shall get baking. Thankyou! x

    Hello Sandie

    Yes I made this in a breadmaker, I did it on a cake setting which mine has. This recipes you to remove any blades and line the baking tin with grease proof paper.

    If you can have egg, then this is the bread recipe to try as its fantastic.

    Yeast Free and Dairy Free Spelt Bread

    Sadly I cant have eggs anymore, so this is the recipe I am using which does give more of a scone texture rather than bread. Let us know how you get on.

    Hi Miranda! Thank you (a bit late) for this wonderful recipe. Recently found out I can’t have yeast or sugar (but honey is ok), so I tried your bread today. It literally just came out of the breadmaker and is just what the doctor ordered! I added a good amount of honey and some oats to make it interesting and it turned out great! It even rose like your picture, which was a pleasant surprise.

      I literally did mine in a mug and then just used the same mug for all the measurements. Not an exact science but it did work. We are going to rework all the cup recipes when so they are in grams. Hoping to do this soon.

    This looks amazing. I am on the anti-candida diet so I am trying to find a bread I can have. I can’t find the Gluten & Wheat Free Bread Flour here in the States. I can only find Gluten & Wheat Free All-Purpose Flour. Can I use that? I don’t think I can substitute Rye since I am supposed to stay away from that.

    Any advice would be appreciated! I miss bread so much!

    I recently found out that I’m intolerant to dairy, egg, gluten, yeast, soya & sunflower (amongst others) and have been looking for a bread recipe for the breadmaker I got for my birthday last month. It’s so frustrating reading for the fiftieth time that gluten free breads NEED eggs to stay together & yeast to rise! I’ll be testing the recipe as soon as I get the chance!

      Xanthum and Gaur Gum bind the texture – can also stop breads from sinking after having risen. I use a non temperature controlled gas oven which has been interesting to say the least! Looking forward to using this recipe . . .

    Are there any gluten/wheat free flours available that are also free from cross contamination of the latter? I cannot find any that are and also free from soy or dairy. Dove’s farm have told me not to use their products.

    • Reply
      April 25, 2010 at 3:31 pm

      Hi Charlie, it would be useful to know why you are concerned about cross contamination. Any product labelled as ‘gluten-free’ must have less than 20ppm (parts per million) of gluten.
      However, according to the excellent Coeliac UK website it is impossible to eat a zero gluten diet, because even naturally gluten-free cereals such as rice can contain up to 20ppm or 20mg/kg of gluten. Research shows that this tiny amount of gluten is not toxic to people with coeliac disease who can eat unlimited amounts of products with gluten at a level of <20ppm. I hope this helps but you will also find links to many gluten-free products on the Coeliac UK site.

    Found your website yesterday and immediately tried this recipe. Very pleased as I have known for over ten years about my milk intolerance and a candida overgrowth. Decided to eliminate as much yeast as possible due to the bloating, constipation and ‘fazed’ weariness. Will try an egg in the recipe next time to see if that helps with the texture. I used a third each of wholemeal, rice flour and ground porage oats. Tastes good, bit crumbly like a scone but if this works will not touch bread again. Thanks girls this is a brill website:)

    Oh my gosh! In the nicest possible way, it’s really good to know that you lot are as difficult to feed as I am!

    I have resigned myself to the fact that the reason I feel so rubbish all the time is because I really have to take note of what my allergy tests taught me. I am now abiding by my results which inform me that I am wheat, gluten, yeast, cow’s milk, whole egg, brazil nut, rye and rice intolerant.

    It just all seemed too much bother to home bake but I am really enjoying my new lease of life and my breadmaking machine’s never seen so much action!

    I’m just off to try this receipe out.

    Hi Miranda, I just stumbled across this forum and I would like to ask where do you get your gluten and wheat flour from? Also where do you buy the gluten free baking powder? I have been diagnosed with Candida 4 weeks ago by a doctor at a private clinic (GP was useless, when I suggested candida as the possible cause of my problems she said candida is not recognised by medical profession as a condition!!!). Anyway, have been on Candida diet for the past 4 weeks but I am really craving bread so I want to try your recipe. Could you pls let me know? Many thanks, Katarina

    Hi there! I am following guidelines for the candida diet as I was diagnosised with a fungal infection on my skin but my dr did not say what kind, just that it seemed fungal. Tea tree oil helped the rash disappear pretty much over night but I know it’s an internal issue as well and am taking precautions.

    I have to have my morning coffee!!! Any suggestions for getting that morning caffeine fix??? Should I just substitute creamer with a soy or almond milk??? Or are there special creamers I can use? I really hate the non-dairy powder creamers so something liquid preferably.

    Candida is a serious problem within intensive care units, for cancer patients and for those, like me, immune suppressed (transplant) or with AIDS. There are medical-journal published papers on the internet about Candida and other fungal overgrowth syndromes and I was hospitalised with my problem in June and now have to scramble to change my diet to eliminate the sugars and starches that feed the problem in the gut.

    Katarina, change your GP! There are now lots of different ‘flours’ like quinoa flour, coconut flour, gram flour, etc. and things like coconut oil to innovate with.

    Quick breads, soda bread recipes are surely the future to replace the quick yeast, quick rising (poor nutrition) fast breads that have too prominent a place in our diets now.

I have missed bread, especially toast, for years and am always looking for a yeast free recipe that works. I’ve tried some but end up with bricks. I’ll get my dusty breadmaker out and give this one a go in the morning.

    This site is brilliant. I want to start making our bread as I think most of what we eat is rather bad for us. I love that you are providing wholesome nutritious recipes for us to try… How do you do find the time to do this?

    I have allergic reactions to tomatoes, capsicum(bell peppers)… and whiskey. Good job I don’t drink it hey.
    And… wait for it… Potato. The potato gives me the least reaction. The reason I mentioned this is that most pre made, gluten free etc, bread flours use potato flour/starch.

    Miranda, do you think that a 1 cup blend of 3 different flours like, rice, buckwheat and another (not rye) would work in lieu of the above? Also, does the liquid make a difference in your opinion? Water, Almond Milk, Coconut Milk..?

    Finally did you make this in a bread maker or just by kneading and rolling/forming it?

    Thanks for your reply in advance.

    After being dairy free for years and gluten free for two years, it was a shock when i was told to eliminate sugar and salicilates. After some testing, turns out both of those are fine for me (though I still try to avoid sugar) but I do need to avoid eggs, soy, garlic, almonds (that hurts ALOT because I began to compensate by eating HEAPS of almonds), kidney beans, goats milk plus the requisite wheat and other dairy. Oh and yeast. The yeast thing is killing me. I didn’t cook much before, and bread isn’t something I ate much of, but it’s great to see a recipe I can use.

    I’ve been considering buying a bread maker as I saw one cheap recently. Knowing there are recipes available with no yeast means I’m considering it more strongly.
