Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon of salt
  • ½ teaspoon of sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • ¾ cups of water, around eighty degrees Fahrenheit
  • Cookie sheet and parchment paper
  • Large bowl

Instructions: 

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 425F.
  2. Line your cookie sheet with the parchment paper.
  3. In your bowl, whisk together the sugar, salt, baking powder, and flour.
  4. Add in water and mix everything together with your fork and your spatula.
  5. Sprinkle flour over a flat surface.
  6. Place the dough over the flour-covered flat surface and knead it together for around two minutes.
  7. The dough should now be very smooth.
  8. Flatten out the dough into a rectangle shape with the palm of your hand.
  9. Fold the dough as if it were an envelope.
  10. Sprinkle a little bit more flour over the dough.
  11. Form the dough into your preferred loaf shape.
  12. Place the dough over your prepared cookie sheet.
  13. Bake for 15 minutes at 425F.
  14. Lower the temperature to 350F and bake for another ten minutes.
  15. Cool the bread over a wire rack.

And that’s it! As you can see, it’s an incredibly simple and straightforward process to prepare bread without any yeast involved whatsoever.
