Amazing, Yet Easy

Whole Wheat Homemade Bread

Everybody will love the smells coming from your kitchen with these amazing, yet easy homemade bread recipes. I have never in my life met a person who doesn't enjoy good homemade bread. There are two main categories of breads: yeast based breads that need to rise, and baking powder/baking soda based breads that do not need to rise. I make this distinction because the methods of preparation are very different from each other.

Tip: Making homemade breads is a great way to save money on your food bill. For more tips on frugal living, please visit the Family Security Through Frugal Living website.

Yeast Based Breads

These homemade bread recipes would include regular white/wheat bread, dinner rolls, cinnamon rolls, scones, etc. A common characteristic of all of these breads is the need for them to rise at different steps. To ensure that these breads turn out well, read through the recipe beforehand and make sure you have plenty of time to let the dough rise at each step. Don't skimp on rise time.

Tip: If you overcook your bread or you want a softer crust, brush the top of the crust with butter. This will soften it and give it a good flavor at the same time.

Homemade Bread: This is the bread that we eat on a regular basis. We hardly ever buy bread at the store.

Scones: Try one of these delicious scones with honey butter. If you're already making bread, these don't take much more effort at all!

Cinnamon Rolls: Who doesn't love a freshly baked cinnamon roll. Try the easy recipe or the super easy recipe (using regular bread dough).

Parker House Style Dinner Rolls: These have always been a favorite for special occasions such as birthdays and Thanksgiving.

Baking Powder/Baking Soda Based Breads

These homemade bread recipes do not use yeast, which gives them a great advantage: you don't have to wait for anything to rise. If you're pressed on time, this is the way to go. Many of the breads in this category use techniques similar to those of baking cakes. Example: banana, zucchini, or pumpkin bread can be checked to see if it is done by inserting a toothpick and seeing if it comes out clean. Biscuits on the other hand are related more closely to pastries. This is because you start by cutting shortening or butter into the flour. This is a classic pastry technique.

Tip: Try replacing up to half the fat content (oil, shortening, or butter) with applesauce. This will keep the recipe moist while reducing the fat content and adding fruit! Most of the time, you won't even be able to tell that you altered the recipe.

Banana Bread: Try one of these amazing banana bread recipes. This is a great way to use up your overripe bananas.

Zucchini Bread: Add some veggies to your families diets without them even realizing that they are eating them. Every kid loves zucchini bread.

Pumpkin Bread: This classic recipe has that familiar pumpkin flavor with a few chocolate chips here and there.

Biscuits: Maybe biscuits are a little old fashioned, but I have never seen anybody pass one up. This recipe is great for biscuits and gravy, or just biscuits and jam to go along side your favorite meal.

Corn Bread: This goes great with a little bit of honey butter and along side a bowl of chili.

Marshmallow Rolls: These rolls are a great treat and activity all "rolled" into one. Also, find out why these work great as an Easter treat.
