Five Traditional Breads to Make Without an Oven

In the Summer, I like to keep the oven turned off, that keeps the house cooler - which is more comfortable. And, that's better for the environment - and for my budget - since I'm not using fossil fuels to both heat and cool my house at the same time! 

There was a long period of time in my life during which I lived without an oven. I searched for oven-free breads and couldn't find any (this was pre-internet). If you're in the same situation, you might like these recipes any time - not just in Summer. 

And, most of these recipes (with the exception of the slow cooker bread) will make a couple of servings of bread much more quickly than the oven ever could - that can be a huge advantage on a busy night ANY time of year!

On top of all that, if you're on a budget, homemade bread can save as much as 90% off of store bought (assuming $4. for a loaf of Artisan bread from the store, or .40 cents for a similar - but tastier - bread made at home) 

Best of all, these recipes are easy and delicious! All of the breads are freezer-friendly IF you have leftovers - but I'll bet you won't ; )

    1. I hope you enjoy them whenever you eat them! I DO make these in the winter here, too, since they're fast when I don't want to wait for loaves to rise & bake. Enjoy your winter!

Welcome!
Please, DO chime in! : )

If you want to share a link to a pertinent and supportive post of your own that directly relates to my post (if, for instance, you also have a great vegan pancake recipe, or a post about Christmas) I don't mind a bit!

I encourage any questions about methods, measurements, or cooking times, and comments about typos, broken links, mistakes, omissions, etc. I also welcome thoughtful questions - even if you disagree with me.

I often take a few days to post your comment, and a few after that to reply. Please don't think I'm ignoring you if my response is slow - I'm just not always connected to technology.

Delighted to have you here! Post away!
