Folk wisdom says: "You will not be full without bread and honey." Indeed, we have almost no meal without bread. Therefore, today HozOboz decided to bring to your attention another bread recipe - yeast-free bread in a bread machine. Traditionally, making such bread is a real pleasure, because you only need to put all the necessary products into the bowl in a clearly defined order. And, by the way, such bread will be ready faster than yeast, and this is another plus. So without delay, let's get to work. Although, a little interesting history does not hurt at all.
The history of bread began a long time ago - more than fifteen thousand years ago. At that distant time, of course, bread did not much resemble today's soft, fluffy and airy rolls. Rather, it was a liquid gruel, which primitive people prepared from the collected cereal grains. A little later, people learned to cultivate cereals. It is curious that the cultivation of cereal crops surprisingly coincided in time with the invention of hand mills. Approximately at the same time, that is, about five thousand years ago, the first baked bread appeared, which was a primitive unleavened cake.
The secret of making the first bread from Ancient Egypt passed to Ancient Greece. According to this recipe, the bread was made from dough fermented in a special way. By the way, in eastern countries, in particular in India, airy and light bread is still baked, the softness of which is given not by yeast at all, but by a special technique for its preparation.
The most famous yeast-free bread in the world is soda. It is not difficult to guess that it is prepared not with yeast, but with soda. There are many types of such bread. In the Balkans - garlic, Bulgarians - kravay, Macedonians - pita and pogacha, Greeks - basilopita, and, finally, in Ireland - just soda bread. Today we will try to bake yeast-free bread in a bread machine, but not with soda, but with the addition of baking powder.
By the way, about baking powder. It was invented to the greater delight of housewives in 1835. Baking powder, also known as baking powder, consists of sodium bicarbonate (common baking soda) and acid salts. In addition, the baking powder contains starch, which not only serves as a barrier between acid and soda during storage, but also gives extra volume to the baking powder so that it is easier to measure. We will measure the baking powder using the measuring spoon that each bread maker is equipped with.
Recall how baking powder works. Getting into the dough (moist environment), soda with acid enter into a chemical reaction, as a result of which carbon dioxide is released. In a hot oven, millions of tiny bubbles of this very carbon dioxide increase in volume. When the dough is baked, these bubbles are fixed in place. As a result, the dough rises evenly and bakes well. Baking is light, fluffy and airy - exactly the same as our today's bread will be.
The main benefit of yeast-free bread is the absence of yeast in the recipe. There are quite a few people who cannot consume yeast for health reasons. For example, those who have kidney problems should be careful with this product. Yeast allergies are also common. However, this does not mean at all that people should refuse fragrant bread, soft buns and airy pastries, because all this can be prepared without yeast. For example, our today's yeast-free bread recipe for a bread machine is one of those. Bread prepared according to our recipe can be consumed even by those who suffer from yeast intolerance. So let's get started.
By the way, it will be possible to bake yeast-free rye bread in a bread machine or wheat bread, like today, but with the addition of sesame, raisins, all kinds of greens, etc. The options can be different, so there is room for imagination. Moreover, HozOboh is sure that you have no problems with fantasy. By the way, until your family has eaten all the bread, you can still imagine all kinds of sandwiches and sandwiches. On that note, allow me to digress. Always your HozOboz.
