No Yeast Brown Bread

Brown bread is a healthy alternative to the white bread. I came across a very simple recipe for brown bread in a book named 'Cookbook For Women'. The recipe uses flax seeds, rolled oats, whole wheat flour and brown sugar. Flax seed replaces most of the oil or fat used to make regular breads. The best part of this recipe is the preparation time. It takes hardly 5 minutes to prepare the batter for no yeast brown bread.
Whole wheat flour - 11/2 cup
All Purpose flour - 1 cup
Old fashioned rolled oats - 1/2 cup
Ground Flaxseed - 1/3 cup
Brown Sugar - 2/3 cup(packed)
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Buttermilk - 12/3 cup

Method of Preparation:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Spray a loaf pan(8X4 inch) with cooking spray.
2. Add all the dry ingredients to a large mixing bowl and mix well. Stir in the buttermilk into the dry ingredients just until mixed.
3. Transfer the batter into the loaf pan. Sprinkle a teaspoon of oats on the bread batter.
4. Bake for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
5. Cool the loaf pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Remove the bread from the loaf pan and place it on the wire rack.
6. Wait until the bread completely cools down(around 2 hours) before slicing.
7. Enjoy the delicious no yeast brown bread with the favorite topping of your choice. This no yeast brown bread tastes even better when it is toasted.

  12. Hi!
    I highlighted this in my Linky Love post for the Hearth and Soul Hop! Thanks again for a great post!


  13. Hi, I have made this basic recipe countless times in the past few months since I wanted to give up yeast, and it has become my morning bread. I made it without the flax seed, and another time I made it with a little more wheat flour and without the flax seed, and it has been delicious every time in taste and texture.

    Tonight I made it without flax seed and a little more wheat flour, and the only thing I changed is that I actually used buttermilk. I had been using regular milk soured with vinegar.

    I have not cut into this loaf as yet - it came out very strange. I think I will go back to regular milk soured with vinegar. I have always used that substitute in the past, and it never seemed to make a difference.
