Bread Baking Basics – The Recipes

I hope you’ve enjoyed my series on the basics of baking homemade bread! Over the past few weeks, I’ve covered the necessary equipment, the basics of yeast, and tips on mixing up bread dough without a big mess. So, now it’s time to get baking!

I had planned to share a new, basic bread recipe with you this week… Unfortunately, things don’t always work out according to my plans! Despite my best efforts, I didn’t have time to bake bread over the weekend. I’ve had my hands full with getting things done before my surgery (which is scheduled for this afternoon!).

Instead, I thought I’d share a few of my favorite bread recipes that have been featured here in the past…

  • Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread – You’ve seen photos of this bread before… It’s the photo I used for the bread basics series! Here is my revised version of the bread, complete with a video tutorial to get you started!
  • Light and Soft Dinner Rolls – This is my grandmother’s recipe… A family favorite! If you want to make rolls, I think this is a great place to start. You can’t go wrong with this recipe.
  • Homemade Steak Rolls – If you’re planning a cookout for Memorial Day weekend, I’d recommend giving these steak rolls a try.  They are perfect for sausages, hot dogs, or whatever else you plan to grill!
  • Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls – If you’ve got a bit of a sweet tooth, you may enjoy trying your hand at some cinnamon rolls. They make a great Saturday morning breakfast!

I hope you’ll decide to try your hand at baking some homemade bread… And, I’d love to hear about it if you do!

  1. I’m loving these bread posts. Was wondering though–have you tried Healthy Bread in 5 Minutes a Day? I’m hooked. So darn easy. No kneading. Just mix it all up in 1 bowl, store in fridge, pull of chunks to let rise and bake when you need them. Dough lasts 2 weeks in fridge. They also have a book Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day.

  2. Those light and soft dinner rolls are on my list. For some reason fluffy rolls have always eluded me, so I can’t wait to try your recipe!!
