Everyone's baking more right now — especially homemade bread. 🍞

The only problem? For many of us, it's hard to find yeast at the grocery store these days. Luckily, there are tons of no-yeast bread recipes out there — like savory no-knead loaves, quick breads, and sweet treats that double as dessert.

1. Lemon-Poppyseed Glazed Quick Bread

Quick breads — like this one — are breads leavened with something other than yeast or eggs. This bright, citrusy version has a super simple prep and is ready in about an hour. Don't forget the lemony glaze!
