Make Fresh Bread In Just Minutes With A Pressure Cooker

One of our favourite food hacks is making fresh bread without a breadmaker. If you own a pressure cooker, you can make delicious and rich-tasting loaves at home in under 20 minutes.

Laura at Hip Pressure Cooking (the same smart site that showed us how to cook eggs in a pressure cooker) details this interesting bread-making technique. You'll need some sort of container, like a coffee can or heatproof glass measuring cup, and just a few simple ingredients (flour, bicarb soda, yoghurt). After pressure cooking for 15-20 minutes you should get a warm loaf (even faster than baking bread in a slow cooker). The bread doesn't come out crunchy, but you can quickly grill a few slices or put them under the grill for some crust.

The pressure cooker is a wonderfully versatile kitchen tool. One of the best things about this, besides saving time, is you avoid heating up your kitchen with the oven.

    So, they just discovered you can make damper without a campfire? :P

      No, they knew the recipe for damper and shared it on the internet. It's what we do here.

    W.T.H.... seriously? BAKING is a hack? Christ on a crutch are you serious? So, I'm thinking if I took away Melanie's bread maker, microwave and food processor, she'd starve?

    Give me a break.

      I get the sense from this site that almost any food you make yourself at home is a 'hack'.

    New definition: "In Just Minutes" = Half an hour (including preparation , cooking and grilling.)

    Everyone has a bread maker in their house.... It's called an oven


      If they could show us how to wash dishes with our oven, THAT would be a hack.
