    Please share bread recipes?

    I'm the only person in my family that bakes bread regularly, and because of that, I get to bring bread to most family meals. I like to try new breads every now and then--loafs and rolls. The recipe I'm sharing is for buttery dinner rolls. I made them at Thanksgiving, and they were SOOO good. Soft, buttery, fragrant. Please share your favorites!

    Hi Dixie - here is my recipe that I make over and over. Makes 2 loaves, I usually add raisins, nuts, and cinnamon to one.

    1 1/2 c warm water in bowl. Add
    6 T. brown sugar
    2 T. yeast

    in small pot melt 3 T. butter, when melted take off heat and add 1 1/2 c. milk.

    Add to yeast. Add 1 T. salt.

    Add 3 c. whole wheat flour, 3 cups white flour, add more white flour to right consistency.

    Knead 10 minutes, back in bowl, let rise til double. (covered with damp cloth)

    shape into two loaves, (add raisins here if you are making raisin bread). Add extra flour if dough is goopy. You want a nice stiff dough to avoid "mushroom top" bread.

    put in loaf pans, put in warm oven to rise with a pan of water underneath.

    When almost to top of pans, cook at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. It will rise more in the oven. Don't forget to take the pan of water out first, I always forget this!!

    This bread keeps a LONG time in the fridge, I just slice it as I need it.

    Thanks, Barb! Sounds really good. Do you plump the raisins before you add to the dough?

    1/3 c sugar
    2 tsp salt
    2 c warm water
    2 TBL melted shortening or veg, oil
    6 c flour

    Dissolve yeast in c warm water
    In a large bowl combine sugar, salt, 2 c warm water and shortening. Stir in yeast mixture. Gradually add flour to form a soft dough. Mix together until smooth. (with hands)
    Place in greased bowl, cover let rise 2 hours. Punch down divide in two to form two loaves. Place in greased bread pans, let rise 2 hours.
    Bake at 350 got 25 to 30 minutes.

    Thanks, Donna.
    Without digging thru my recipe box, I think this is the same "Amish White Bread" I make. This one and one I make with instant potatoes are our sandwich breads...I use them for the kids lunch box sandwiches. Good stuff!

    Dee's Health Bread

    INGREDIENTS:*
    2 tablespoons active dry yeast*
    1 teaspoon white sugar*
    1/2 cup warm water*
    3 1/2 cups warm water*
    1/4 cup honey*
    1/4 cup molasses*
    1/2 cup vegetable oil*
    2 eggs*
    2 tablespoons lemon juice*
    7 cups whole wheat flour*
    1/4 cup flax seed*
    1/4 cup cracked wheat
    1/4 cup sunflower seeds
    4 teaspoons salt*
    4 cups bread flour*
    DIRECTIONS: 1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and sugar in 1/2 cup warm water. In a large bowl, mix remaining 3 1/2 cups warm water, honey, molasses, oil, eggs and lemon juice. Mix well. Add yeast mixture and stir. 2. Gradually add 5 cups whole wheat flour beating well after each addition. Add the flax, cracked wheat and sunflower seeds, stir well. 3. Let stand for 20 minutes, until mixture is very light. Stir in salt and the rest of the flours until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. 4. Knead 10 to 15 minutes until dough is smooth and elastic. Put into a greased bowl and cover, let rise in the oven with light on until doubled, about 1 hour. 5. Punch down and shape into 6 round balls. Cover and let rest for 20 minutes. 6. Form into loaves and let rise covered in oven until doubled. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) 25-35 mins.



    This is our sandwich bread. I bake 5 loaves, as opposed to the recipes 6, and freeze until we are ready for them. Tomorrow is my bread day so I may try another recipe to change things up.

    I really hate to sound so dumb, but I have no luck with yeast. Is there an easy way to tell how warm the water is just by feel?

    Think of testing a baby bottle- you want it to feel warm against your wrist, not hot, not cold.

    I always just use hot tap water...if it is too hot to touch, it will probably not be best for yeast. I think if you're measuring the temperature with a thermometer, it should be under 120 degrees. More importantly, I had NO LUCK with yeast in a package. Once I started using yeast from a jar, it has risen every single time. I keep the jar in the fridge once it's opened and make sure it doesn't sit out after I have measured out what I need.

    I tried ptquilts recipe with the brown sugar, changed the ratio of wheat to white flour and it was wonderful. I will be serving it at a get together with some close friends. I still want to try Dee's health bread, but have to shop first....

    Sorry about that ~~ Since friend mainly did rolls, I only have that written down. 350 degrees for approx 13 minutes. Like anything it depends upon the size. Friend sometime made 'hamburger' buns with this recipe

    I made all our bread when the kids were growing up. I even mill our own flour with a grain mill. None of them have time to bake or make bread and they ALL eat store bought white bread. Can't say I didn't try to get them off to a good start!
    I still bake for DH and I. I just bake less often and freeze the extra loaves.

    This is soooooo good. We love it toasted for breakfast in the morning.

    Best Bread in the World

    Servings : 2 loaves or 24 slices
    Categories : Bread, Yeast

    Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
    -------- ------------ --------------------------------
    2 cups boiling water
    1 cup rolled oats
    2 tablespoons yeast ( I found this excessive. It rises too fast, I would cut in half)
    1/2 cup water -- lukewarm or buttermilk or combination
    1 tablespoon salt -- (optional)
    1/2 cup honey
    2 tablespoons butter -- melted
    2 1/2 cups unbleached flour -- (2 1/2 to 3)
    1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour -- (1 1/2 to 2)
    1 egg yolk -- (optional)
    Sesame seeds

    Pour boiling water over oats. Let stand until thoroughly softened. Soak yeast in lukewarm water. Add salt, honey and room temperature butter to oats. When oats are lukewarm, add yeast and mix well. Gradually add flours. When stiff, turn onto lightly floured surface and knead until dough is smooth and elastic.

    Put into a lightly oiled bowl, turning dough to coat all sides. Cover with a cloth and let rise 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

    Oil two loaf pans. Punch down bread dough and cut in half. Knead each half briefly and shape each into a loaf. Place loaves in pans. Cover and let rise until pans are full. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Beat egg yolk lightly with 1 teaspoon water. Brush top of each loaf with egg mixture and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 35 to 40 minutes. Turn out on a rack to cool.

    these sound like a are all very good bread recipes,
    if I may, I will add one note, when I take my bread from the oven, right then, I sprinkle it lightly with cold water, or just with wet hand quickly run over the bread, it makes nice crust, that is if anyone is looking for crusty bread.

    My Mom always did that

    Yum, I will have to try some of these recipes. I like to make my recipes in my bread maker on the dough setting and then, shape them into loaves and rise before baking in my oven. We prefer the shape better than the bread machine turns out.

    Does anyone have a good and easy artisan bread recipe? I am new to bread baking, but very eager to learn.
