How to Make Spinach and Feta No Yeast Bread
- Prepare for Baking: Preheat your oven to 350˚F and line a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan with parchment paper. Coat the paper well with cooking spray and set aside.
- Cook Spinach: Heat olive oil in a skillet; add spinach and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, or until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
- Combine First Round of Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, thyme, rosemary, salt, pepper and baking soda. Whisk until thoroughly combined and set aside.
- Complete Batter: In a separate mixing bowl, combine sour cream, vegetable oil and eggs; whisk to combine. Fold the sour cream mixture into the flour mixture.
- Add Spinach & Cheese: Add the cheese and the spinach mixture to your batter; gently stir around to combine.
- Bake: Pour the batter into previously prepared loaf pan and bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Let Cool: Remove your bread from the oven and let it cool for about an 1 hour; remove loaf from pan and transfer to a rack to cool completely. Serve and enjoy!
Tips for the Best No Yeast Bread
- Line with Parchment Paper and Grease Your Loaf Pan: It may seem excessive to both line and grease your loaf pan, but it’s important for this bread. It will make your life so much easier when it’s time to remove the bread from the pan.
- Transfer to Rack While Cooling: Once your bread has been cooling for 1 hour, transfer it to a wire rack. This way, you won’t risk the bread becoming soggy.
- Don’t Overmix: Avoid mixing the sour cream completely into the flour mixture. Keep in mind that you’ll be stirring it again to add the spinach and feta.
This bread is delicious as toast, and it’s also a great side to pair with your favorite dishes! Here are some ideas for what to serve it with:
- Pasta: If you’re in the mood for a savory feast, serve your bread with this Easy Cheesy Baked Ziti.
- Soup: This bread tastes wonderful dipped into soup or simply as a side to accompany it. Try it with my Creamy Ravioli Soup recipe!
- Chicken: A simple chicken dinner is sometimes the way to go. This bread is a yummy side dish for my Crispy Honey Sesame Chicken or these Oven Baked Chicken Tenders.
How to Store Homemade Bread
- It’s best to store your bread in a resealable bag with all the air squeezed out. At room temperature, it will last for 3 days. If you need to store it for longer, keep it in the fridge for up to a week.
- You can also store your bread in the freezer as a loaf or separate slices. If you keep it in an airtight bag, it’ll last for 3 months!
