Is there a good white bread recipe for a bread maker that requires no yeast, but yields a similar quality product? Answered

I am trying out my bread maker for the first time and I forgot to pickup yeast at the store. I was wondering if there is a good recipe,maybe using baking powder, that yields a tasty white bread without the yeast.

Irish Soda bread doesn't use yeast - Never used a bread maker to make it though.

Traditionally it is a brown bread but why not white.

Lots of recipes on line.

Sorry, that's highly unlikely.

Unleavened bread becomes crackers if thin, bricks if thick. Go back out and get yeast.
