I have a craving for warm bread with butter. Not sure why, maybe I need some comfort food. Not much compares to warm bread when you’re craving comfort. I’ve made bread for a while, both by hand and machine, but never to the extent that I have a recipe that I think is perfect or that always comes out just right. Pinterest must have the right recipe for me!
There are two recipes that I had to include just because of the names. They are both white breads, which I feel are a little easier to get right for a newbie. First is Basically Perfect Bread from Something Swanky. It looks pretty perfect to me.
The second one from Delia Creates is called Best Bread Ever. This is exactly what I want in a comfort bread.
Next are a couple of whole wheat breads. The first is 100% Whole Wheat Bread … airy and delicious! Passionate about Baking has created a loaf that looks like it just came out of a French Patisserie!
This next one from Delia Creates is called High Altitude Bread, but it’s not specific to high altitudes. It is actually written for low altitudes and adjustments are given for higher locales. Doesn’t it look yummy?
Then I saw this yummy looking Amish White bread from Bakerette. Not quite sure what makes it Amish, but I want a big chunk of it right now!
Next I found this fabulous looking Rosemary Olive Oil Bread from A Hint of Honey. I love rosemary, it’s the one herb I always grow and rosemary bread just smells like a slice of heaven! This also has the dense texture that I like in bread.
If you haven’t made bread before, then perhaps watching this video “How to Knead Bread Dough” from theKitchn might help you get over any starting fears.
I have never successfully made dinner rolls, but I’m going to try this Recipe for Homemade Yeast Rolls from Smart Savvy Living and see if I get lucky. They look so perfect!
Just one last recipe, specifically aimed at novice bakers. Tempering yeast and kneading and raising bread dough can be a little taxing. So if you try a few times with limited success, you really need a win to shore up your confidence. That’s when you need a quick bread! No yeast, no kneading, and no rising. You just dump all the ingredients into a bowl, mix, pour into a loaf pan and bake. They are fast and yummy.
Here is Quick Beer Bread from Sunday Funday. I would eat a chunk of this in a heartbeat!
Now I really, really want some warm bread with butter! How about you?
