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.
