LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I'm allergic to yeast and lactose-intolerant AND I hate to cook - so sandwiches are a big part of my daily diet. Does anyone have a recipe for bread that can be made into sandwiches? (How like "regular" bread is salt-rising bread? And how hard is it to make?)

Use search engine, search for:


You will find recipes and how to alter recipe for lactose intolerance.


RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Thank you Grandma. The first recipe that showed up - No Yeast White Bread - sounds like the ingredients of a loaf I have bought - but cannot afford very often. The retailer (who iis not the baker) said it took 24 hours to rise. Which is why I asked about salt-rising bread.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Jane, Check at your local library, for a book called the Gluten free Gormet. I found several books at our library under allergy cookbooks. Hope that this helps.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Tracy: No that doesn't particularly help. I am not allergic to the flour which which is what contains the gluten.
I am only allergic to the yeast which is the leavening agent.
Thanks anyway.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Jane, my Mother-in-law is allergic to yeast and sugar ( try to go out to eat with her!) She also has no time to cook. Maybe that's why she is only 104 pounds.... if you get a recipe that you like let me know. I have a bread machine and would like to surprise her with a loaf!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I was wondering if you had any success with your search. I have the same allergies as you and didn't know that you could use salt to make the bread rise!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Noreen: I can use buttermilk even though I am lactose intolerant. Don't know if everyone can though. (And it most likely wouldn't be true if you are allergic to milk; that is, allergic to the proteins in milk.)
A lot of Irish soda bread recipes I've found are OK.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I don't know about a recipe but a good quality sourdough will be yeast free - finding one is another problem since the sourdough at the grocery bakery has yeast in it - but I have found some at health food stores that I like -

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Sourdough contains "yeast", it is wild yeast but never the less is still yeast.

Salt rising bread will also contain wild yeast.

The yeast is in the air and will settle into the mixture multiply and make a great starter.

The same takes place in salt rising bread.

yeast-free and dairy-free bread

have you considered the latest "trend" in sandwiches - wraps?
Look for
Corn Tortillas
Flour Tortillas
Injera [Non Yeasted]
Indian Fry Bread
Chapati / Chappati / Chapatti
Lavash / Lawaash / Lahvosh / Lavosh [Hard Or Soft]

Many flatbreads are both yeast and dairy free, and make wonderful sandwiches!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

bme: Yes I do know about wrap sandwiches, but ... I have purchased locally (from a fruit and vegetable stand) a fine loaf of bread that looks like regular baker's bread. The lady running the stand told me that the baker is a German lady, and she lets the dough rise overnight (which is why I asked about salt rising bread originally). The ingredients, according to the vendor, were baking powder, flour and vegetable oil if I remember correctly.

I can't rave on enough about this bread. I've been eating sourdough for years and had forgotten how good "regular" bread tasted.
It is too expensive for me to buy on a regular basis however. So I've been madly searching the Net for months for a recipe.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I've been put on a yeast and sugar free diet. I also have to exclude any fermented foods. So no cheese, yoghurt, alchohol.. etc.
Would anyone be able to tell me if Milk would be allowed and what about tomototes?
And I'm guessing Pasta is ok??


RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I would think milk, pasta and tomatoes should all be OK.
No vinegar or soy sauce. And things like quorn and textured vegetable protein and tofu could be a problem.

I also have to avoid all dairy and yeast (& fermented foods) - I'm looking for a recipe for yeast-free bread but despite using google I haven't found one. Can anyone p[ost one here please?

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I have been wanting a yeast free recipe too so I could enjoy bread again. I searched the internet and found some potentially good yeast and dairy free alternatives. This is by far the best and most comprehensive website - I recommend you browse it.
Here is one the best recipes I found.

This recipe is yeast-free and dairy-free!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

This may not be for jakeandjane anymore but I just tried and had terrific results with a sourdough recipe (Potato Sourdough Bread) I found at Joan's Sourdough Bread Primer. I used Carl Griffith's 1847 starter which I love, has stayed alive neglected for months and still quickly restores. It's moist and fluffy, tastes great. I sliced it for sandwiches. It's supposed to freeze very well. I give it my highest recommendations. No baker's yeast and no milk. Of course, I know nothing about yeast-free diets so sorry if it's not considered yeast-free.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Hi I have just been diagnosed as intolerant to dairy products, bakers yeast and believe it or not onions. Its a nightmare trying to find things that taste nice that do not have any of these ingredients. I was interested in the girl talking about the German lady who made nice tasing bread.....did you get the ingredients yet. If anyone else can give me advice I would be really oblidged.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Hi there midiman - hope you've been able to find good alternatives by now. I too was advised a while ago that I should not consume dairy or yeast. I have oatcakes and wraps instead of bread (oatcakes are even OK on their own if you need a quick snack). Oat milk is lovely and have found it to be much nicer than soya milk. Peanut butter and other nut butters (e.g. almond butter) are good alternatives if you've previously been a Marmite fiend. Also, apparently people who are dairy intolerant can sometimes have goat's or sheep's milk with no problems - don't know what I'd do without feta cheese! Re: javadiva's link to a soda bread recipe above - I thought any fermented products like vinegar had yeast in them? Let me know what you've been eating as it may give me some ideas!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I'm interested in any sugar free, yeast free, dairy free recipes anyone may have also. My daughter is 10 and is on this type of restricted diet. I hear a lot of "its not fair". Any cake, cookie or dessert recipes would be very welcome too. Anything to help her feel normal on b-day treat day at school, etc. would be most helpful. Thanx

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

HollyBee, if you find any recipes like that I would love to have them too as I'm also on that restricted diet..How sad for a child to have to be on such a diet as this..My heart goes out to her.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

I highly recommend reading the book "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon for those not able to eat yeast. Though there are recipes using sour-dough starter, there are plenty of recipes not using yeast. And if you come across a recipe asking for certain flours, simply replace it with spelt or kamut as we do. We are a yeast intolerant family and we are trying to do away with sugar products as well. HTH!

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

i'd love to reference your thread and receive a free book. i'm in a frugal moms group with 60+ members who are affiliated with other frugal groups and organizations. would all i have to do is refer them to your web address? i actually just checked out your website before i found this thread as i am just beginning my research on this diet for my husband and 10 yr old daughter. please feel free to email me

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

Here is one that I found but haven't tried it yet.

Through trial and error I came up with a great yeast free recipe for bread that all my friends have borrowed. It is easy to make with no other equipment than a wooden spoon and a bowl, and a good baking sheet (I prefer the ones that are airfilled so that the bottom doesn't burn). I'm in Canada and use 8oz= Cup =240ml and my teaspoon=5ml."
3 Cups whole wheat flour (preferably stone ground)
4 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 1/2 Cups liquid (I use rice milk or water but it works with any liquid)
1/4 Cup liquid fat (I've used melted milk free margarine but now I use olive oil)
Mix dry ingredients. Do not sift the flour!
Mix liquids and add to dry. Stir until there is no more dry flour.
Shape into a ball or an oval, with oiled hands.
Place on clean baking sheet. Bake for 40 minutes at 400F/200C.
"I often rub the dough ball with virgin olive oil and sprinkle sea salt and oregano for a foccacia flavor. For tea time, I add a tsp. Rapadura sugar which is pure cane sugar. The liquid can be replaced for orange or other fruit juice if the bread is to be used for teatime and you can even add dried chopped fruits. For a savory bread the liquid can be tomato juice and you can add chopped sundried tomatoes to the dough. Sprinkling of seeds in the dough or on top of the bread is also possible.

RE: LOOKING for: yeast-free and dairy-free bread

try yeast-free light wheat sandwich bread recipe from -- it requires no rise-time or kneading of dough and is not at all messy while preparing!!!

pasta on yeast free diet

It has always been my understanding that pasta is a refined carbohydrate and that refined carbs break down into sugars. Am I wrong?
