This recipe will make two loaves of the *best* French bread you will ever have, I have been making this for years with perfect results every time, sometimes it is not the ingredients used but the method used that will make for perfect results, this is my way to a create the perfect French bread! --- you will need some cornmeal for the pan and an egg white for brushing on the top of the loaves, also about 1 tablespoon of sesame seeds --- make certain to have the two separated cups of water at the right temperature or your bread will not turn out properly, two .25-ounce packages of yeast will be fine for this recipe --- NOTE use 1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon of active dry yeast OR 2 small packages/envelopes of active dry yeast
WARNING: Do not schedule a cholesterol check within a week of enjoying this bread. This has become a traditional treat at a friend's New Years Day barbeque party. It's just not New Years Day without Di's Clog Your Artery Garlic Bread. I have mentioned that the cooking time is 45 minutes, however this will depend on if you add more than 1 cup Parmesan cheese.
This is a nice bread from Bernard Clayton's Complete Book of Breads. He describes this as "a farmhouse loaf in New England kitchens for more than 150 years. When white flour was scarce, often in wartime, this blend of rolled oats, cornmeal and whole wheat was added to the flour to make it go farther. It makes a delicious loaf that tastes equally good in less troubled times." Prep time includes rising time.
This is a wonderful recipe for cheese bread, if you don't want to add in grated cheddar, add in small cubes of cheddar by hand after kneading. This can also be made on a stand mixer with a dough hook attached. If desired you can add in about 2 tablespoons room temperature Crisco shortening in with the yeast, warm water, sugar and salt, the bread will stay fresher longer and bake out with a softer texture.
This bread taste so good and so easy to make. You let your Kitchen Aide do all the work. The crust is nice and crispy and the inside is perfect. You can make loaves of bread or dinner rolls. Hope you enjoy.
Scones, spread with preserves or honey, have long been known as a sweet breakfast or tea-time treat. But savory scones, made with herbs and cheese instead of sugar and fruit, are the perfect lunchtime accompaniment to soup, stew, chili or a salad. Easily prepared, quickly baked and sturdy enough to throw in a lunch bag, scones are a neat way to help you fulfill your grain requirement on the food pyramid.
These fabulous rolls are wonderful stuffed with your favorite sandwich ingredients. This is one of those recipes that is not hard to make...but makes you feel a great sense of accomplishment when looking at the finished product. You can either make them into a tight knot, pretzel shape or simple bun shape. The recipe is a combined effort from Thorsten, his German baker friend, and myself. The dough also makes great pretzels. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did! Scoring the top with an X has some cool results as well! BEER PAIRING: Live Oak Pilz, a Bohemian-style pilsner, is perfect with these rolls!
These are the best homemade buns for burgers they bake out soft and light and the dough is a pleasure to work with, they also make wonderful sandwich buns too, this will yield between 12-14 buns depending on how big you make them, I sometimes add in 1/2 teaspoon malt powder but it is not necessary --- Canadian residents can use all-purpose flour, U.S. residents use bread flour
This is a bakery-quality bread that is on regular rotation at my house and has been so for many years it is one of my family's favorite breads, because of the addition of egg the rising time will be slightly longer than usual --- there is very little sugar and no butter or shortening in this bread which gives this bread a spongy-like texture, perfect for dipping! If you are a jalapeño lover then by all means add in as much jalapeño peppers as you desire, this bread does not require forming into a loaf shape just shape into two large balls which makes it an easy recipe for a beginner baker :)
Very pretty presentation! Loaded with salty green olives in a savory cheesy bread, this really hits the spot along-side a thick soup on a cold winter's evening. Try it with Potato & Ham Soup OR Clam Chowder. Enjoy the colors when you cut the slices!
