2-Ingredient Milk Bread Recipe (No Yeast, Butter, Oil or Sugar & Egg Free)

It seems like so many have gotten the baking bug. We are always on the lookout for simple bread recipes that novice and experienced bakers would enjoy making. This easy two-ingredient milk bread recipe fits the bill. This easy bread recipe has minimal (really minimal!) ingredients, easy prep and bakes up in no time. 

The two-ingredient milk bread recipe is made with self-rising flour and whole milk. That's it. The two ingredients are whisked together and then put into a loaf pan. The bread dough is baked in the oven for about 40 minutes or until golden and it springs back with you gently push on the top. The smell while it is baking is heavenly! 

If you use a larger loaf pan, the bread will not rise as much as using a regular-size loaf pan. Whole milk is recommended for this bread recipe. Using low-fat milk or nut milks will affect the bread's texture. 

Slice this homemade milk bread and spread on jam, jelly or butter, use it to make sandwiches or top with sliced cheese.

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 35 to 40 minutes (every oven is different)
Total Time: 45 to 50 minutes
Servings: Makes 1 loaf


  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk 

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Whisk together the flour and milk in a mixing bowl until smooth and lump free. (Do not overmix!) Pour the batter into a 8x4-inch loaf pan that's been lined with parchment paper. 
  2. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 35 to 40 minutes or until golden brown on top and it bounces back with touched. You can also insert a toothpick and it should come out clean. Let bread cool before removing it from the pan.

Wait, what? Can’t be that easy, wow. 😋
🥰 EASY PEASY! I'm certainly going to try this one really soon. Thanks for what looks like another great recipe!
Elisa Schmitz
I know, right? Amazing! Simple and satisfying. Let us know how it turns out for you, terrymovold !
I'm hoping this bread is good for sandwiches. Yeast breads never work out for me
Donna John
I hear ya! I'm not that great at baking, but working on it. I hope this bread works out for you!

If you use these quantities you get a DOUGH and not a batter?? Then it says "don't over mix"..it is a dough?
Donna John
It's a loose dough. It's not kneaded. Mixing it too much will make the bread tough.
Rene Jones
Well, I have one in the oven. It is definitely a dough and not a very loose one at that. I ended up spraying the top with cooking spray and using the back of the spoon to smooth it out. It will definitely NOT look like the picture. We will see about the texture once it come out of the oven.
Rene Jones
Very heavy and dense. Looks pretty when sliced, taste is bland. I think adding a tad bit of sugar would help. It would work for sausage gravy over it instead of making individual biscuits, but it has the definite taste of a biscuit. I would not use it for a sandwich as it is way too heavy and dense.
Donna John
Thank you for the tips! Like the idea of adding a bit of sugar.
Thanks for letting us know because I was wanting to make it to use for sandwiches
I'm wondering if I can use lactose free milk instead of whole milk?
Donna John
If the consistency is the same, I would say yes. If it's thinner (like skim milk), it would affect the bread's outcome.
Troy Wootton
I have a question for you all is this supposed to look like baking powder biscuit dough because it does not look like something that can pour.

Mine looks nothing like the picture. It would be nice if whoever created this recipe did a video tutorial to show how to get it so creamy looking and smooth on top. Very bland not very flavorful at all and even spraying the loaf pan and putting parchment in the bottom and spraying the parchment below still stuck and came out looking like a beige piece of wood.

I just made this bread and I still can't believe that 2 ingredients make bread. I couldn't wait for it to cool down all the way and snitched a slice as soon as it came out of the oven. Yummm! It's delicious and so nice and soft. I added a tsp of sugar to the batter, as I thought it might help it brown a bit better. It was a little short so I might play around with the amounts and bake time to see if I can get a taller loaf. Thanks for this recipe. It's a keeper!
Elisa Schmitz
This is wonderful to hear, Wendy Valach ! Thank you for sharing your experience with this easy bread recipe, and for the tip about adding some sugar. Sounds great, and please keep us posted as you experiment with any other modifications. We appreciate your kind feedback, and are glad you’re part of our community! Donna John
