The recipe for instant leavened bread is clever and very simple, an ideal solution for those who have little time in the kitchen and do not want to wait for the hours of rest necessary for traditional bread. To grow your dough volume, you can replace the yeast with the instant yeast for savory pies, fast and very easy to use. And then you will just need water, flour, olive oil and a pinch of salt. If you are ready to knead, let’s see how to prepare bread with instant yeast.

How to prepare bread with instant yeast

In a bowl, sift the flour together with the instant yeast for savory pies. Mix well with your hands or with a wooden spoon.

In another bowl, mix the lukewarm water with the oil. Gradually add the flour with the yeast in the bowl with water and oil, adding the powders little by little and mixing well. Once you have added half the flour, pour a pinch of salt and continue to knead.

Move the dough on a work surface and knead with your hands until you will have obtained a soft and homogeneous dough. Create creases and fold the dough until it is shaped like a loaf.

Line a baking tray with parchment paper and transfer the bread to it. Cut a cross on the surface with a knife, so that the dough incorporates air. Bake at 200 degrees C for about 30 minutes. At the end of cooking, you can use the grill mode and raise the temperature, so as to obtain a golden and crispy crust.

Tips

When you prepare the bread without leavening, always keep lukewarm water handy and add it to the dough if necessary, if you notice that it is dry by mixing. Don't add too many liquids, the dough shouldn't be too sticky.

Typically a teaspoon of sugar is added to the dough to help the yeast activate. In this case, with instant yeast, there will be no need.

For a more wholemeal dough, you can substitute half a dose of 00 flour with semolina flour or wholemeal flour. For an even tastier bread, you can add nuts, sesame, or sunflower seeds.

Preservation

Instant leavened bread should be eaten fresh from the oven to enjoy its fragrance. If you have some leftovers, you can preserve it for a maximum of a few days, closed in a food bag or in an airtight container.
