This chocolate cake is absolutely thee best we have ever had. It is so moist and rich, I never make anything else (unless I am short on time :) The frosting recipe included goes perfectly with this cake, but you can use any frosting you like. Try this once and you'll see why I call it "The Only Chocolate Cake Recipe You'll Ever Need"!! Adding 2/18/06: I want to note that I recently used sweetened whipped heavy cream with vanilla and it was just as fabulous as the frosting recipe listed, plus much easier. I also used hazelnut coffee in the cake and it added even more of a little extra something!
I found this recipe on-line from the blog of Lizel Salter, author of "Recipes from South Africa" and here is her description of the recipe: "This is a fantastic recipe for shortbread, a speciality of the Scottish. It is one of South Africa’s favourites and this is a recipe for home-made shortbread." The recipe doesn't indicate the amount this makes, so I am guessing at the amounts.
A delectable confection from the kitchen of June Oaks, wife of Brigham Young University president Dallin Oaks. This was surprisingly easy to make and an absolutely delicious addition to my goodie plates for Christmas.
This is surprisingly easy to make at home. Baking bread can sometimes seem too time consuming, but, while this one needs to sit overnight in the refrigerator, it doesn't require all that kneading. This recipe is for two loaves, so you can freeze one for later.
Since I've been making these Challah's my family refuses those bought in the Bakery & whenever we're invited for a holiday meal somewhere else, the only request is...please bring your Challahs! This, with only minor adaptations comes from The Spice & Spirit of Kosher-Jewish Cooking. Please read all the directions first--yes, they do take a long time to prepare, but only 30-40 minutes or less of that is active time & they are truly worth it!
DH and I buy at least one loaf a week of ciabatta and eat it with olive oil. I finally decided to see it I could make a better bread than the brands we've tried from the store. We agreed that this is the best bread we've EVER had! The first loaf was gobbled before the second one came out of the oven! :) Can't wait to make it again!! Note: The dough will be VERY sticky - do not add more flour. The bread itself is not tall and fluffy. It has a wonderfully crisp, tender crust. It would be perfect for an Italian sandwich, if cut horizontally, of mozzarella, basil, tomatoes, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and s&p.
This is the best Cinnamon Raisin Bread I've ever had! It really has a great consistency and smells WONDERFUL while baking. I made this for the first time about a year ago and since it makes 3 loaves, I gave one to my neighbor. Now she asks for it constantly and since it is so fun to make, I oblige her, plus I get to keep the other 2 loaves!
This is the one I make all the time. I use the bread machine to make my dough and then bake in oven to get that rustic look. It rises nice and the crust and texture is great--give it a try. Prep time includes the total bread machine and rising time.
You can also make this in your KitchenAid mixer instead of the bread machine, using you kneading hook. Oil bowl cover let rise in a draft free spot.
This focaccia bread is sooo easy and tastes wonderful! Tons of herbs and seasonings, and tons of flavor!! Great to make sandwiches with! You can alter the toppings to your liking. I have made this with caramelized onions and sliced tomato on top...Mmmmmm!!!
This is the most awesome wheat bread I have ever eaten. It is worth the extra effort and because this recipe makes 4 loaves, you can freeze them and have enough for awhile :) Rising time included in prep.
This Irish soda bread recipe was passed on to me by a dear friend of my mother's who was born and raised in Ireland. It's the best Irish soda bread I have ever had. It is much higher, lighter and softer than most other recipes I have seen. It has an excellent flavor and texture, as well.
Hooray for fall! We love this pumpkin bread recipe--especially when the slices are slathered with a generous spread of cream cheese. Makes two loaves, so freeze the other one, or heck--eat it. This bread goes fast.
