Quickest Bread

But what is the secret of this quick bread recipe? It’s made with baking powder instead of yeast, which makes this bread rise nicely in the oven and saves you the long rising time you are used to from yeast bread.

Plus, no need for a stand mixer. A large bowl, cup measuring set, spoon, and a 9-inch (25cm) loaf pan is all you need.

Measure, stir, bake, done! Baking bread without yeast is so easy! It’s an excellent recipe for all bread baking beginners and bread lovers with little time for baking!

All you have to do is mix all the ingredients in a large bowl (takes 5 minutes), fill it into the loaf pan, sprinkle some rolled oats on top, and bake it for 50 minutes.

1-hour later, from start to finish, you will be rewarded with delicious bread with a crispy crust and a pleasant hearty taste with lots of healthy seeds and nuts.

Whole Grain Flour & Seeds

Thanks to the use of whole-grain flour, seeds, and nuts, this bread is not only healthy but also very aromatic. You can use it as sandwich bread, serve along with salad, or enjoy it for breakfast with this raspberry chia jam

It provides you with many vitamins and minerals and can be very well integrated into a healthy diet.

Another advantage of this quick bread recipe is that it is super adjustable. You can choose between spelt, rye, and whole wheat flour. Or even a mixture of all three. It doesn’t matter which flour you choose, go with the one you have at home or like the most.

Same rule applies for the seeds and nuts! You need about 1 cup of mixed seeds and nuts, so throw in your favorite ones to accommodate your taste.

It tastes delicious with:

  • Sesame Seeds
  • Poppy Seeds
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts

My favorite blend is:

  • ¼ cup sesame seeds (35g)
  • ¼ cup pumpkin seeds (35g)
  • 2 tbsp poppy seeds (10g)
  • ⅓ cup almonds, hazelnuts, or walnuts (35g)

Recipe FAQ

How long does it stay fresh? For 2 days if packed in a clean tea towel. → It becomes very soft if stored in a plastic bag. Therefore, the tea towel is the better option, unless you are going to toast it anyways.

Can I freeze this bread? Of course! Freeze it in a freezer bag for up to 3 months. → You can slice the bread before freezing and thaw single slices in the toaster.

Can I use tap water? Absolutely! The sparkling water helps to activate the baking powder and makes the bread fluffier! Don’t worry if you only have tap water, it works too.

  1. I’ve got this on my list for a rainy weekend bread making fest! The recipe sounds delicious and perfect for someone like myself who is just starting with bread making.

    1. Hi Tamaira, I highly recommend using sparkling water for this bread recipe. You are free to try it out with milk, but it will alter the taste. 😇

  2. Do you have to use all that salt, and what about the all purpose flour, is that necessary.
    Is there another recipe with very little salt and only whole grain flour with no yeast. Thanks.

    1. Hi Miriam, yes, the salt (it’s only 1 teaspoon) is necessary for the taste. Feel free to make the recipe only with whole grain flour, but you need to add a little more water as whole grain flour absorbs more water than all-purpose flour. 😉
