Let your loved ones wake up to the yeasty aroma of baking bread in the morning.  Although bread is a super-convenience food, being readily available in all sorts of different varieties, no packaged loaf can imitate a freshly baked one.   Bread making is a delightful ritual that is making its way back as a tasty alternative to the store bought versions.  Take advantage of the possibilities home bread making opens up with the bread recipe collection below.

White Bread

The typically smooth, almost pudding-like texture of white bread is a treat on its own, as well as being the basic ingredient of dishes as varied as French toast and turkey stuffing.  For less mess and more time for you, consider purchasing a bread maker.

Whole Grain Bread

Whole grain bread is a healthy alternative to white bread, as it is prepared with the nutrient-rich bran and germ of the grain intact.  Most commercial whole grain breads are actually a mixture of regular white flower and whole grain flower.  If you enjoy healthy eating and prefer your bread gritty and chewy, use whole grain alone.  

Sourdough Bread

Sourdough bread is an ancient bread-making technique that does not rely on yeast for the dough to rise.  Wild yeast is cultivated using a mixture of flour and water to form a natural leaven.  While the yeast we know today was created for convenience, sourdough can be easily made in your own home with little effort.  Enjoy a crispy-on-the-outside, moist-on-the-inside loaf of wholesome sourdough.  Your entire meal will take on a whole new flavor.    

Banana Bread

Fantasizing sweet and spongy banana bread for breakfast? Banana bread is known for its rugged texture and banana flavor.  Take a walk on the sweet side with delicious banana bread tips and recipes.

Flatbread

Flatbread is prepared without leavening agents and is popular in various forms around the world.  In Mexico, the popular flatbread tortilla is used in dishes such as burritos, tacos, enchiladas and quesadillas. Middle Eastern cuisine makes use of the pita, with or without pockets, in almost any meal.  Flat breads make great complements to a special dip or sauce.  Next time you are barbequing skewers, be sure to try a Middle Eastern hummus dip with warm pita bread.  Your quests should be thrilled!  

Going Against the Grain

Wheat that is.  Whether you are on a wheat-free diet or simply looking for an alternative to the usual, expand your baking horizons with alternative grains such as barley and rye.

The Bread Machine

From fruity breads to pizza crusts, a bread machine can be used for almost any bread recipe.  One of the best features of this handy appliance is the ability to program baking to start hours after you load the dough.  Wake up to the aroma of freshly-baked bread, knowing all the baking was done while you were sound asleep.
