Easy Batter Bread

I promised something different, so here you go!  This is probably the fastest and easiest yeast bread recipe I have ever found!  No kneading needed!  Hot, fresh, homemade bread in less than 2 hours!  I don't know if it gets any better than this!

Easy Batter Bread

3 c. flour
2 Tbsp. Sugar
1 tsp. Salt
1 pkg. Active dry yeast
1 egg
1 c. milk
2 Tbsp. Shortening

Mix 2 cups of the flour, with the sugar, salt and yeast in a large mixing bowl. Heat milk until very warm, stir in shortening until it melts, then beat in eggs. Pour liquid ingredients into dry ingredients and beat on low speed with a electric mixer for 1 minute, scraping sides frequently. Beat on medium speed 1 minute, scraping bowl frequently. Stir in remaining flour until smooth dough forms. Dump dough into a greased loaf pan, 9x5x3”, and pat down and smooth into pan. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 – 45 minutes or until loaf sounds hollow when tapped. Remove from pan and brush crust with butter while hot.


  1. I was wondering if I can use butter in place of the shortening? Is shortening usually margarine? Thanks!

  2. Any of the above are fine, this bread is very forgiving of substitutions.
