This is a very easy homemade bread. It’s only 2 ingredients and doesn’t require any yeast, butter, oil, sugar or eggs. The milk bread comes out soft and fluffy. It can be eaten as is or used for sandwiches, toast and more.
This may be the easiest bread loaf recipe I’ve ever shared. It takes less than five minutes to prepare and then the bread is ready to go into the oven. My family really enjoys this bread.
- Self-Rising Flour
- Milk (or milk alternatives like almond, oat, coconut milk)
Self-Rising Flour: This recipe uses self-rising flour. If you do not have self-rising flour, you can easily make your own using all-purpose flour, baking powder and salt. See the recipe card at the end of the post for the exact amounts.
Milk: I used whole milk but low fat milk will also work. I do recommend whole milk because it adds some fat to the recipe, which helps make the bread softer. You can also use dairy-free milk alternatives like soy milk, almond milk, oat milk or coconut milk.
How to Make Easy Milk Bread
The flour and milk are mixed together until no flour lumps remain. The mixture is then poured into a loaf pan and then it’s ready to go in the oven. The bread bakes for about 35 minutes or until done.
The bread has a similar texture to classic sandwich bread. It can be eaten right away with your favorite spread. You can also toast it or use it to make small sandwiches. We like using it to make open-faced sandwiches.

2 Ingredient Milk Bread
- 2 cups (250 g) self-rising flour (see notes section for making your own self-rising flour)
- 1 ¼ cup (10 oz) whole milk (can use low fat milk or milk alternatives)
- Preheat oven to 350°F. Line an 8 x 4 inch baking loaf pan with parchment paper.
- In a large mixing bowl, add flour and milk. Use a whisk to mix the two together, whisking until no flour lumps remain. Be careful not to overmix as it can make your bread tough. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
- Bake bread for about 35-40 minutes until done. Bread loaf should be light brown on top but will not develop as much color as your typical yeast bread. When you apply pressure on the surface of the bread it should bounce back and a toothpick inserted should come out clean. Let bread cool fully in the pan before removing and slicing.
- You can also use a 9 x 5 inch loaf pan but your bread won't rise as high and you will need to reduce baking time.
- To make your own self-rising flour, add 2 cups all purpose flour, 3 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt to a bowl. Whisk to combine. Measure out 2 cups for the recipe.
- I used whole milk but the recipe will also work with low fat milk, Whole milk is recommended because it helps the bread have a softer texture and more flavor. You can also use milk alternatives like soy, almond, coconut or oat milk.
