Canned White Yeast Bread That Needs No Kneading

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
YIELD: 2 loafs




  • In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water.
  • Blend in cardamom and 1 tablespoon sugar and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Stir in remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, milk, oil and salt.
  • Add 2 cups flour and beat at medium speed of electric mixture until smooth.
  • By hand, stir in remaining flour, enough to make the batter very heavy, but to sticky to knead.
  • If you have a heavy duty mixer you could do it all in the machine.
  • Place batter in 2 well greased one pound coffee cans.
  • Cover with greased plastic lids (dough may be frozen at this stage).
  • Let cans stand in warm place until lids pop off tops, about 1 1/2 hours (if frozen, allow cans to stand for 4 to 6 hours in warm place).
  • Remove lids and bake at 350°F for 45-50 minutes.
  • If using a 2 pound can, bake for 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  • Cool for 10 minutes, loosen crust around edges with a knife and let bread slide from can.
  • Place loaves on wire rack to continue cooling.
  • This can also be made in 2 bread pans.
