I just found this one today and like that it's super quick and uses vegetable oil (I like staying away from solid fats). I used it to make pancakes. I needed more milk than usual but they were by far the best "from scratch" pancakes I've ever made.
This recipe is based on an article in the San Jose Mercury News by Stacy Diaz. I tried it and didn't need near as much water as the recipe indicated. The dough should not be sticky. This recipe is healthier since it uses oil instead of shortening.
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.
When I landed on this recipe while surfing the web, I had to try it. I'm so glad it did. They are delicious. Tip I: The dough should be soft but not sticky. It took me two attempts to get that just right. Tip II: I posted the recipe as written. After, several batches, I don't press the dough into a rectangle anymore. I divide it into eight equal pieces and pat each piece into a 1/2" thick round. Then, turn each round in dish of cornmeal.
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 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 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.
My family loves this bread! I like to serve it especially with soups and sometimes along with dinner. This is the bread I make when I don't use my bread machine. This recipe came from a good cook in our area that she shared in our local paper. The prep time includes the rising time, and I put 25 min. baking time, but start checking after 20 minutes. Thanks for trying this, I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
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 :)
Per Google.com, the #1 recipe for Beer Bread in the world! There are a few recipes for beer bread out there, but none as simple (and tasty!) as this one. You can even mix it in the baking pan for easy cleanup. This is sensational when served with soups or just as a snack, but don't expect it to be around very long when your family gets a taste of it! Be sure to use a sheet pan on the shelf below the pan to catch any excess butter that may drip during cooking.
