Favorite Bread Recipes




Every couple of months I enact my leftovers rule. For approximately two weeks my family eats all the leftovers from the freezer  and pantry cupboard. I try to make leftovers once a week, but they still accumulate in my freezer and I end up with various leftover ingredients in my cupboards. So this is week one of my two week leftover session, so I thought it would be a great time to do some favorite recipe round-ups. Today's topic is bread. I absolutely love to make bread and make it normally once or twice a week. I actually taught myself to bake bread, baking was never one of my mom's strong suits and I learned to bake from cookbooks. Now that I have been baking bread for a while I have become quite adept at knowing which ingredients need to be modified and which recipes will work. Here are my favorite bread recipes that I have reviewed for my blog. Enjoy!





Cilantro-Scallion Bread

 


Soda Bread Biscuits

 


Garlic-Olive Loaf

 


Lemon-Thyme Bread

There are my favorite bread recipes. Looking back through my blog I can't believe how far my blog has come the last year. I actually look like I might know what I'm doing now, maybe...
Do you have a favorite bread recipe?

    2. I didn't see these comments before, sorry they went into my spam folder :) I have no idea about the Shaney Bread, my mother in law might know she has a lot of older WV cookbooks. As for the pone bread, are you thinking of corn pone? My inlaws live in Nicholas county and they make corn pone a lot up there. I can give you a recipe for that. Here it is:
      Mix 3 cups cornmeal, 1 1/2 cups flour, 3/4 cups sugar. Add 3 cups boiling water. Let the mixture cool 2 minutes. Then add: 1 cup buttermilk, 2 eggs, 1 tsp baking soda, 1 tbsp. salt, 2 tbsp. baking powder. Pour into a 9x13 pan or a bundt pan (greased). Bake at 400 degrees for 1 hour.

      Some people also make a sweeter version with honey or sorghum added. I have made it both ways and it's delicious.

    3. Okay, after talking to my mother in law we are both thinking that it must be the fried bread that a lot of people make around here. You basically take self rising flour and water and then fry in a skillet. Some people call it Shanty bread which is close to Shaney bread. I have to check about the exact amount though.

  6. My grandpa from Wayne co .WV made a skillet bread he called Shaney bread, my dad says it was baked and tasted like biscuits, My grandpa also referred to the Shawnee Indians of that area Shaney Indians, so it must have been a Indian recipe. I too would love to find the recipe.

    1. I would love to help, but the only ideas I have are above :) I make my biscuits in my cast iron skillet, but I'm guessing that isn't what you are talking about. The fried bread is the closest idea I have. I didn't grow up here and my husband's family is from the mountains, so old Wayne County recipes aren't something I know a lot about. We live in Cabell County, which is right next to Wayne, but I don't have a lot of older recipes from this area. Maybe someone else that comments will have a better idea :)
