Ok, so today I'm sharing with you this ridiculously easy no-knead cheese whole grain bread.
Yea, I know it's quite a mouthful name but totally worth it. Yep!
Let's just dive in, shall we?
No-Knead Quick Bread
This is a type of bread for you busy people out there. The process is super easy. You just need the willpower to mix the ingredients and the patience to wait for it to bake.
This type of no-knead quick bread doesn't require any yeast. I know some of you feel intimidated to start working with yeasted bread dough.
So fear not, we're not using any yeast today. Instead, for the leavening agents we'll be using baking powder and baking soda. Both ingredients that all of us have in our pantry, right?
This bread is amazing to enjoy with some butter (oh buttery butter), pesto (check my homemade one), olive paste, ham and more cheese if you prefer. I love to pan toast the sliced bread. Oh my!
We're on a roll with our healthy recipes these weeks and we're continuing it in this recipe, guys.
I've modified my quick no-knead multiseed bread by switching the flours to whole grain wheat flour and spelt flour. If you love bread as much as we do then you'll be happy to know that these healthier flours are not only good for you but they make you fuller.
Healthified breads don't need to be horrible bread. Right?
And this bread is just soft, tender and you can taste the cheese and garlic flavours coming through as you bite into a slice.
Hey and on top of using more nutritional flours, we're also adding seeds in it. Extra point there!
This no-knead cheese whole grain bread is:
- super easy to do, just mix the ingredients with a hand whisk
- doesn't use any yeast, so no kneading and rising time
- super soft and flavourful
- perfect for busy people like you
