“I found this on AllRecipes, posted by Zoe. She says "There's no yeast in this bread, so it's good for special diets. You may also use soy milk instead of regular milk if you wish. It's pretty dense, but great when fresh from the oven. Especially with butter and honey on cold mornings!" I have personally made this a number of times as a quick accompaniment to warm soup. The original recipe calls for an oven temp of 450, but I find this gets too brown if I go that high. Also, I have made this as both a rustic round loaf and in a loaf pan. When I want to make a round loaf I put it on a cookie sheet. It does flatten a bit while cooking, though, so if I want slices instead of wedges I will put it in a loaf pan and tent w/ foil to avoid burning the crust. Yes, the dough will be more like a batter than a traditional bread dough, but I promise it will come out as bread!”
