I never use yeast when making bread. Two reasons: One is that I don't like the smell or the taste of yeast and two it takes too long in my opinion with all the kneading, heaving and waiting. I am too impatient. My breads and buns take about 10-15 minutes to prepare (plus the time it takes to bake them of course) and you can make them fresh in the morning before you go to work or school or to pop into the lunchbox. You can even mix the dry ingredients together the night before and quickly add the wet ingredients in the morning. Home made breads are the best and you can experiment endlessly with the ingredients. You could for example try grated carrots, zucchinis (courgettes), parmesan, olives, sun dried tomatoes, muesli and more. Just make sure that the bread dough is not too wet when baking as it will yield a heavy and uninteresting loaf. Also keep in mind that it is important not to over mix the dough as it needs all the air it can get.

I use wholemeal spelt and barley quite a lot although you can use regular flour if you prefer (or try combining spelt and regular flour). I use gluten free and aluminium free baking powder instead of regular/conventional baking powder although you can use conventional baking powder if you prefer.

Not exactly like the French do it but still nice!


This has to be one of the simplest recipes to make, ever.

Perfect for using up those old and battered bananas

Banana Patties

These patties are gluten free, dairy free and nut free. They are perfect if you have over ripe bananas lying around.

A wholesome bread, very nice with healthy jam, peanut butter or  cheese

Basic Loaf of Bread

The thing I love most about this bread is how versatile it is. It's the kind of bread you can always add nice things to such as olives, sun dried tomatoes, seeds, herbs and more.

Bread rolls which are always popular with soups, stews, in the lunchbox and more

Bread Rolls (Buns) for every occasion

This recipe is an adaptation of a recipe I found in a popular Icelandic cooking book called Af Bestu Lyst II (With Good Appetite II).

A very nice and a little different bread. Perfect for all kinds of toppings

This is one of my favourite "different" breads. It has a nice aroma, colour and texture. I love it toasted with a slice of mild cheese.

A chapati must be the simplest bread to make in the whole world!

Lovely buns with pistachios and hazelnuts, rich in protein and fibre

Coconut and Pistachio Rolls (Buns)

This might somehow sound like a strange combination, pistachios, hazelnuts and coconut in a bread but somehow it works and quite well I might add.

One of my favourite bread rolls, I absolutely love them

Coconut Rolls (Buns)

These rolls are my all time favourite and I love the mild taste of coconut. It is far from overpowering so you can actually enjoy this bread with anything from mild cheese to pesto.

One of my favourite breads for toasting

Cornmeal and Mixed-seeds Bread

The texture of this bread is very nice and it is an excellent bread for freezing and toasting. Although the bread includes a fairly long ingredient list, it is quite easy to make.

A very healthy bread, full of fibre and goodness

Farmer's Bread

Ok I admit I actually don't know of any farmers or a farmers' wifes that make this bread.

A lovely bread with a nice texture

This bread is the perfect one to make if you have fresh herbs that are past their best. I used soy meal as I like the texture of it, however you can use more spelt flour instead.

Packed with healthy fatty acids and vitamins

Linseed Biscuits

Linseeds (flaxseeds) is the richest source of omega 3 essential fatty acids which is also found in oily fish. Because it comes from a plant source, it is perfect for vegetarian and vegan diets.

I love this bread fresh out of the oven with a slice of cheese and healthy jam (without preservatives or added sugar of course).

A lovely and flavourful combination, perfect with a slice of mild cheese

I tried these bread rolls with an African Zanzibar tomato soup I often make.

The perfect bread for savoury and sweet toppings, depending on your mood!

Pumpkin and Walnut Loaf

This is the perfect bread for savoury or sweet toppings/fillings, depending on your mood! I sometimes team it up with hummus or cheese or, if I am in a sweet mood I use jam or peanut butter.

Lovely patties, perfect as a light lunch or a Sunday breakfast

Raisin Patties

I often make a LOT of these in one go and then freeze. I use two pans at once so that I can make two or three patties at once.

Amazingly versatile rice patties, perfect with cheese, jam or peanut butter

Rice Patties

This recipe was given to me by a friend of mine named Lisa Hjalt. She got the recipe from her friend named Sigga Runa.

Sunflower seeds and sesame seeds are such a good combination

Sunflower and Sesame-seed Bread

Sunflower- and sesame seeds are such a wonderful and healthy duo. They fit in almost every bread recipe (unless you are allergic of course).

I often make this bread when I have leftover sweet potatoes

Sweet Potato, Cornmeal and Millet Bread

I made this bread once when I had leftover sweet potatoes. Since then I always try to have some leftover sweet potatoes when cooking them. I love their slightly sweet taste in the bread.

Wonderful homemade wraps for sweet and savoury fillings

Tortilla Wraps

I never buy those tortilla wraps you find in supermarkets. Have you read the nutrient file on those with the big brand names?
