Gluten, Dairy & Yeast Free Quick Cheese and Onion Bread

There is nothing better than freshly baked bread but sadly the reality of the situation is that I rarely have time to make it from scratch. All that time waiting about on yeast to active and the dough to double in size, I know I could use a bread maker but for some reason I always seem to get a better bread making it by hand.

This recipe came from me experimenting with non-yeasted bread, I’ve used plain flour and baking powder to get the rise which means it can be baked immediately – so if you are short on time or can’t have yeast then this recipe is for you!.




  • 315g gluten free plain flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • good pinch of black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon mixed herbs
  • 100g dairy free cheese, grated
  • 1 medium onion, finely diced
  • 2 eggs
  • 185ml dairy free milk
  • 55g dairy free spread, melted
