Who doesn’t love the taste of warm homemade bread? Well this is a simple, no yeast bread recipe for kids to make easily and have fun moulding the dough into funny and creative characters. This bread recipe is delicious when served with jam and butter and makes a great afternoon snack.
As you’ve seen from the recipes I share with you, I only do recipe that are simple and don’t require me to make special trips to the store collecting random ingredients. Inspired by Kate from Picklebums, who shared a delicious quick and easy flat bread recipe, Possum (3.5 years) and I had a great time making bread in the kitchen and moulding the dough into some crazy characters.

Who would have thought that you could make bread without yeast! This is the perfect recipe to make with kids because you don’t have to wait for the dough to rise. Brilliant! Combining some simple ingredients will have you and your children enjoying gorgeous warm bread quicker than you can imagine!
I love watching Possum knead dough with clean hands. There is something so wonderfully homely about it and I also know it’s giving her fine motor skills a great work out.
Possum and I had such fun moulding the dough into some creative and kooky characters. Of course children can make whatever they like! There was some difficulty at times to make the features stick, but we simply dabbed a little water to the dough and it acted like glue! We were then able to add eyes, hair and other fun features.
This dough only takes a few minutes to cook, can you seriously believe it! Like I said, there is no waiting for bread dough to rise, it’s straight into the pan and after a few minutes on each side it’s cooked and ready to be eaten.
- 2 cups flour
- 1 cup yoghurt
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- Pinch of salt
- water (as required)
- Add flour, baking soda and salt to a large mixing bowl and stir through
- Add yoghurt and oil to the mixture and combine to form a kneadable dough
- Knead your dough thoroughly on a floured surface
- Have your child create characters from a golfball sized ball of dough
- Wet the surface of the dough with your finger and place into an oiled pan
- Cook on both sides for 2 minutes or until golden brown
- If dough is too sticky add a sprinkling of flour, if too dry add a tsp of water
Mmmmm delicious! This is such an easy recipe and I really urge you to try it with your kids today. Possum could have eaten plates and plates of the delicious bread, which we topped with some butter and jam. Delish!

Why would you add a tsp of water if the dough is wet, was that a mistake. ?
Neha, you’re a star! Thank you so much for pointing this out. WHOOPS! Hahahaha
Looks easy and fun. I’m going to try it with my kids.
Have you tried this recipe with wheat flour? Do I need to tweak the recipe or can I just substitute one with the other?
