Yeast Free Breads

Does anyone know how a bread rise without yeast? Is the yeast free bread more healthier? Do you have a recipe and methods of the yeast free  bread?

If so, then look up sourdough here.  There are some excellent entries about starting a starter and making sourdough bread.  But if you mean yeast free as in commercial and wild yeast free, then all I could know is quick bread recipes.

What's wrong with yeast?

Yeast free breads would be leavened by chemical methods such as baking soda (sodium bicarbonate)  - like Irish soda bread.


They tend to get stale pretty quickly, though - I like them, but nothing beats bread made with a nice, active, bubbly yeast culture, the wilder the better

true yeast free breads are quick breads such as southern corn bread and the not so quick boston brown bread  (1 to 2 hour baking time)
