This easy batter bread doesn't require wheat flour or yeast. Old fashioned oats are ground to a flour in the blender and baking powder and baking soda cause it to rise. This is an excellent recipe for those emergency situations when you either can't get to the store or can't get the supplies you need. Easy - beginner recipe.
1 cupmilk(original recipe called for buttermilk but I was out)
Preheat the oven to 350F.
Spray a loaf pan with non-stick baking release spray - or butter it well.
Grind the oatmeal in a blender to a flour.
Measure about 3 cups of the oat flour into a bowl
Add the flaxseed meal, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Stir well to blend.
Whisk the eggs and milk together until smooth.
Pour the milk mixture into the oat mixture and beat by hand about 20 strokes.
Spoon into the loaf pan, smoothing top.
Let rest for 10 to 15 minutes.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let cool completely before turning out of pan and slicing.
This no-flour batter bread is such and easy recipe there's aren't a lot of tips to give! Keep in mind this is an emergency bread - best for those times you can't get regular bread or flour.
Be sure to let the batter sit for 10 to 15 minutes before putting it in the oven.
Let it cool completely before slicing - this bread can be a little crumbly due to the lack of gluten.
If you can't find old fashioned oats think outside the box. 7 grain cereal, cream of wheat, rolled wheat, rolled rye - just about anything can be ground into flour. In a pinch I've ground dried beans into flour. (it makes weird bread - not recommended).
This can be made into a sweet bread by increasing the sugar.
Store this tightly wrapped for up to two days.
Make this in muffin cups (half full) to make some pretty decent english muffins.
