During the shutdown of 2020, I baked a lot of bread.

A LOT of bread.

I always have flour in the pantry, but I had to order yeast from Amazon since it was impossible to find locally.

One of my favorite breads to serve with soup or stew is this simple batter bread. Because it has yeast, so it achieves a nice rise, but you don’t have to knead it.

You can also leave out the garlic and Italian seasoning to make a plain loaf (I do this all the time).

Italian Batter Bread

  • Author: Retrogirl


A simple but hearty bread to cut into wedges and dunk into your favorite soup or stew



4 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons each salt, sugar, and yeast

1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning

2 cups lukewarm water


In the bowl of an electric mixer (I’m a Kitchenaid girl), combine sugar, water, and yeast, and let sit for ten minutes.

Stir in the flour, seasonings, and salt, which will form a soft dough. 

Let the dough rise for an hour, then plop it into a greased casserole dish or round ovenproof bowl. 

Let rise another 30 minutes.

In a preheated oven set to 425 degrees, bake for 15 minutes, then reduce the heat to 375 degrees and bake another 15-20 minutes, until done.


Serve slathered with butter, or dunk into soup, stew, or spaghetti sauce
