I love making all types of breads but sometimes I am just not in the mood to wait 5 hours for my breads to proof with yeast, especially in the summer time! I just don’t have the energy to knead for 20 minutes, but I still crave a fresh slice of home baked bread with a dollop of butter! That being said, I have worked really hard to create a really simple country white bread recipe that yields a light and fluffy loaf of without the yeast or the knead!
I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!
- 1 & 1/2 cup Milk (your choice)
- 1 & 1/2 tbsp Vinegar
- 2 Large Eggs
- 3 cups All Purpose Flour
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
- 1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
- 1/2 tsp Sea Salt (Not Iodized)
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix the dry ingredients into one mixing bowl. Mix wet ingredients into a separate container/bowl.
Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredient while stirring gently and folding into the flour mixture. Mix with a spoon until the mixture is smooth OR you can use your bread hook on a stand mixer for about 3 mins (not required).
Grease a bread loaf pan with butter or cooking oil and pour mixture into pan. Bake at 350 for 60 mins or until toothpick comes out clean and top has a light brown crust.
(Optional) Brush top with an egg wash for a thicker crunchier crust.
Let cool on cooling rack for 20 mins before cutting or serving.
Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezey! Enjoy!

Looking for a stand mixer without the Kitchen-Aid price? I personally purchased a hamilton beach 5 qt mixer from Amazon to make breads like this one with ease. Even though this recipe doesn’t require a knead, the bread hook on this guy works amazingly well. I highly recommend it!
I use these bread pans that really make all the difference when trying to get your loafs out without leaving any crumbs behind.
