This was one of those recipe's that my grandma said no one would ever have and she refused to give it out. I feel that no recipe should be kept secret! But after she moved I found her recipe for this sitting in the pantry under our flour container. (not sure if she did it on purpose or by mistake) She used to make these as a "stocking stuffer" and passed them out to EVERYONE!
This was one of the FEW things she knew how to make well. I think this would be good to cut into slices and serve with other goodies at parties for the holidays.
Promise me you will try this one!!! I guarantee a moist, slightly sweet, NOT crumbly corn bread, with NO bitter after taste. I have tried so many corn bread recipes my family is sick of trying them. I have created this recipe from my trials. I like my corn bread to have a nice corn flavor, to be moist and not crumble, and I like it a little sweet. I also DON'T like the bitter after taste so many corn breads have. Give it a shot, you won't regret it!
Another great recipe from Mark Bittman of the New York Times. This is an updated and much faster version of No-Knead Bread recipe found on this site.
Cooking time does not include resting time (4 1/2 hours). Also check out the whole wheat version of this recipe on this site (Fast No-Knead Whole Wheat Bread).
I've been wanting to try a "No-Knead Bread" for some time and this recipe showed up in my new William Sonama Magazine. Have to go out and buy a Dutch Oven, and will give this a try. Sounds fairly simple, with a long, slow rise time. It reports and end product of "a rustic bakery-quality bread with a crusty exterior and soft, springy interior" sounds great doesn't it. Can't wait to try it out. I had to put an amount for the cornmeal, but it's actually "as needed" Preparation time does not including rising time. Edited to add: I finally was able to make this, I had trouble with the rising but think my house was to cold. The blend of flavors was a nice change from plain bread and it did have that nice rustic look with a crusty outside.
I love tasting different cornbread recipes, and I have to admit, I think this is the best that I've ever tasted. Usually I have to put tons of butter on it, because it's so dry and just doesn't have much taste to it, but this recipe is very moist, and you can eat it alone, it's got a great sweet taste to it. Try it...and let me know what you think. Thanks to Betty Crockers Big Red Cookbook for this great recipe.
We used to go to a restaurant here that has closed down. They made the best focaccia I have ever tasted. It was light and fluffy, not at all like a pizza crust. This is my take on it. I use my Kitchen Aid mixer when making this, I am sure a breadmaker on the dough cycle would work as well. Feel free to use different herbs. I will sprinkle parmesan cheese on top some days. Italian seasoning also works well. Serve chunks of this focaccia with a good quality olive oil & balsamic vinegar to dip it in. There was a bit of a glitch in the system when I was posting this recipe - it posted 4 times! I hope you find your way back here to let me know what you think of this focaccia.
Found in a TOH magazine and clipped out to try! Boy was I ever glad I did. A lemony loaf of bread with the extra zip of dried cranberries. I've made this as a regular sized loaf and also in mini loaf sizes for gifts. I have also used walnuts and almonds in this bread and actually prefer the almonds - but use whatever nut you love. The addition of the lemon glaze just takes this bread over the top. *** Edited 11/19/09 - This recipe makes TWO 9x5x3" pans instead of one. Sorry for my error! If you want just one loaf just halve the recipe and it will work perfectly! ***
Taken from the Red Lion Inn cookbook: " The Red Lion Inn's Lemon Bread is justifiably renowned. At lunch and dinner it's wrapped in a napkin and served in a basket along with the yeast rolls, offering a sweet alternative to traditional dinner rolls."
Found this in a Gooseberry Patch pamphlet sent to me featuring recipes using raisins. I used dried cranberries when I made it instead of raisins. I think any dried fruit would work well, like dried cherries or pineapple. I warmed my slices and used for breakfast with a spread of peanut butter. I used the glaze but can see this being good without it too. The orange flavor added a nice depth to the bread and balanced out the cranberries I used. This can also be made into three 5x3" mini loaf pans.
A moist and delicious quick bread mix for gift giving! Nothing says "I love you!" better than a gift from the kitchen. And especially one that fills the house of your recipient with the aroma of sweet, fresh baked bread. The dry ingredients are layered in a quart-sized jar and the jar can be decorated in any number of ways to reflect the occasion. Be sure to attach a recipe card or an embellished tag, to the jar, with the recipe, additional ingredients needed and baking instructions. Prep time includes putting together the gift jar as well as combining the wet ingredients before baking.
I got this from a Garden Center Favorites cookbook quite a few years ago. It is THE BEST banana bread I have made--and I have tried a bazillion recipes. I keep coming back to this one!! I hope you like it.
