Easy Yeast Free Focaccia: Semolina Bread


yeast free bread recipe
Hello again! This time it is desi focaccia again!

You have already tried my previous semolina focaccia recipe, isn't it? I loved that desi focaccia because I did not use any leavening agents there - no baking powder, no baking soda, as it was a naturally fermented batter. Here's the recipe if you are interested.


Nevertheless, I have come up with this desi pizza bread recipe upon request.

I hope you're enjoying my food experiments and innovations. It's been a while since I started baking yeast-free breads at home, for I realize not everyone uses yeast. It is a cause of serious allergy in some people. Some of you do not use yeast due to your religious belief. Fair enough!

We have this yeast free semolina focaccia recipe for you. I call it desi focaccia with semolina, because frankly, I have never tasted focaccia outside.

As far as my research shows, focaccia uses a generous amount of olive oil, which enhances the taste and gives the Italian bread a distinctive flavor and texture.

Since I have not used maida or white flour in the recipe, which is a standard bread ingredient, this is my humble yeast free focaccia for you.

Does it disappoint in taste?

Na, the pizza focaccia recipe doesn't disappoint.

I served the savory pizza focaccia bread to my neighbor and they enjoyed it thoroughly!

This is one easy pizza recipe no yeast that even kids can churn out within minutes. But yes, I would like to mention that I did not have unroasted semolina, so had to use roasted alternative. So the focaccia bread crumbled from one place while slicing.

Eggless Butterless Whole Wheat Sponge With Jaggery

A whole wheat sponge, that too, with minimum ingredients? No, I am not kidding. This baked beauty before you is the result of a successful experiment with whole grains. I am glad about the results. Now I can make guilt-free cakes and rusks for my loved ones. I am so happy to share the result and recipe with you all.
I wanted to make it a vegan whole wheat sponge. Unfortunately, I did not have coconut milk or almond milk handy at that time, so I preferred to go with dairy milk. But I am sure the result should be the same (rather, more flavorful) with dairy-free milk. I could add plain water too, but reserved the thought for another baking session.


If you want to learn how to make almond milk or coconut milk at home, it is quite simple. I never buy these from the market; rather, prefer to make everything at home.
