No matter what you're looking for, you're going to want to bookmark this collection of bread recipes that don't require yeast.
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread
You know and love banana bread—now it’s time to meet the best version of banana bread, a.k.a. the absolute best way to use older, overripe bananas. Our Chocolate Chip Banana Bread is super moist thanks to a special ingredient: sour cream.
Classic Skillet Cornbread
This cornbread recipe is a classic for a reason: It's easy, it's delicious, and it works. You don't need a lot of time for this one: The whole thing comes together in about 30 minutes.
Rhubarb Bread With Pecan Streusel
This tender rhubarb bread has a light citrusy flavor and beautiful flecks of pink rhubarb throughout. The crunchy streusel on top, complete with brown sugar, pecans, and hints of cardamom and nutmeg, takes this bread over the top and adds a delightfully nutty flavor.
Turmeric Banana Bread
Though this company-worthy loaf is, no doubt, impressive, it’s really nothing more than a foolproof banana bread recipe with a few flavor tricks up its sleeve. A power couple combo of earthy turmeric and fragrant cardamon play extremely well with banana’s dense sweetness, boosting this classic quick bread’s comfy-cozy factor to new heights.
Blueberry Zucchini Bread
Our Blueberry Zucchini Bread is perfectly balanced: The whole wheat flour and zucchini give the loaf texture and nuttiness that makes it feel like it could almost be good for you. Meanwhile, the blueberries provide jammy bursts of sweetness.
Apple Cinnamon Bread
The rich quick bread is incredibly moist, thanks to the apple and sour cream, but the key to ensuring it’s as tender as possible is to avoid over-mixing. In fact, once the final addition of dry ingredients has been added to the batter, it’s helpful to finish incorporating everything together by hand.
Chocolate Marble-Pumpkin Spice Bread
A chocolate swirl adds a decadent twist to your usual loaf of pumpkin bread. These marbled loaves start with one basic batter that is flavored two different ways. Use a stand mixer to make the basic batter, then divide it into two bowls, and hand stir in the pumpkin and chocolate components to each bowl.
Lemon-Poppy Seed Zucchini Bread
The tender, fine-crumbed texture and bright lemon citrus flavor offer a refreshing change from traditional spiced zucchini breads. While using a few small, disposable loaf pans is a great plan if you want to gift your zucchini bread, you can also use one (8- x 4-inch) loaf pan to make a single loaf.
We like the nutty flavor of roasted walnut oil; if you can’t find it, though, you can use regular walnut oil for more subtle walnut notes. Freeze extra slices with wax or parchment paper between them. Reheat in the toaster oven on dark toast setting, or broil 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Avocado Matcha Banana Bread
There’s absolutely nothing wrong with banana bread. It’s a breakfast classic, like a plain bagel or a glazed doughnut. However, there are times when a classic just doesn’t thrill. That’s when we pull out the green stuff.
Cornbread with Lemon-Thyme Butter
Classic Southern cornbread is even better with a bright citrus-herb compound butter.
Southern Soda Bread
This soda bread is a savory delicacy that you will love to have present at your dinner table on any night of the week. It takes very minimal hands-on time to prepare and with just a little over an hour of baking, it will practically be ready to serve.
Tuscan Pignoli-Orange Zucchini Bread
Got a boatload of zucchini? A loaf of so-simple quick bread is a delightful, kid-friendly way to put it to use. With bright citrusy notes, toasty pine nuts, and a delightful texture delivered by the blend of semolina and almond flours, this Italian-inspired uptake on your typical zucchini bread is sure to impress.
This recipe goes with Vegetable Soup With Beer Bread . Wanna know what the best thing about this dinner is (besides the fact that it’s highly comforting and delicious)? You likely already have everything you need to make it on hand. An incredibly simple, 4-ingredient savory beer bread is the perfect fluffy and buttery companion to a bowl of vegetable soup.
Chocolate-Tahini Banana Bread
Bananas and peanut butter are a likely duo, but bananas and tahini? Mind-blowing. For those with nut allergies, tahini is a great, slightly more complex, substitute. Try spreading Soom's chocolate-sesame spread over each slice for an extra tahini hit.
Buttermilk Spoon Bread
Be sure and use full fat milk and full fat buttermilk when making this recipe and choose plain cornmeal, not cornmeal mix. This spoon bread recipe instructs you to beat the egg whites and yolks separately, then gently fold the puffy whites into the batter just before baking.
Gorgeous and simple, what more could you want from a summer side dish? This Tomato-Cheddar Cornbread makes good use of seasonal produce--and it comes together in about 45 minutes.
Cheddar-Caramelized Onion Bread
You may have grown up eating classic Southern cornbread at fish fries, but give this Cheddar-Caramelized Onion Bread a try at your next cookout. This bread has a very unique texture, largely due to the use of almond flour. Serve it alongside hearty soups and stews instead of the usual white bread.
Blood Orange Poppy Seed Bread
Like a lemon poppy seed muffin with the volume turned up, blood orange poppy seed bread boasts killer flavor and a stunning color to boot. Poppy seeds add gorgeous speckles and a satisfying crunch, so if you don’t already have some in your spice cabinet, now is the time.
Brown Soda Bread
Whole-wheat flour, wheat germ, and steel-cut oats (also called Irish oatmeal) make this a super-healthy interpretation of the classic Irish bread.
