No yeast bread recipe from Fairweather Garden Centre Beaulieu doesn't even require strong flour

fairweathers garden centre no yeast breadThis recipe for no-yeast bread has been very popular on social media and already tried by many with positive results! Fairweather’s Garden Centre head chef Karl’s no-yeast bread recipe might be useful especially as yeast seems to be one of the things which hasn’t come back into most shops!

Ingredients for no yeast bread

  • 500g plain flour,
  • 4 tsp baking powder,
  • 10g salt
  • 300ml buttermilk (or milk - I used milk as that is what I had available)
  • Handful oats


  • Bring dough together.
  • Don’t be tempted to add more liquid at first - but may need a tiny splash depending on your flour.
  • Knead briefly and divide in 2.
  • Make round balls - flattened to 5cm.
  • Score top and bake at 200 c for 20 -25 minutes until the bread sounds hollow, cook and enjoy with butter.

This bread freshly baked is simply fabulous with soups.  Mmmm it's also delicious buttered with home made jam!
