Bread

Wheat sandwich bread

Bread

This recipe presumes a bread machine.

  • 1⅓ c water
  • ¼ c grains (fast-cooking better)
    ⅛ c gluten
    2 cups wheat flour
    1 c less ⅛ white flour
    2 T dry milk
    2 t salt
    3 T honey (use a T measure to make indents in the flour, pour in)
    3 T butter in small pieces
    just less than 2t yeast on top

Add ingredients in order - the gluten and flour will "float" on top of the water, make sure the grains you add are in the water to soak.

    Blueberry Bagels

    Bagels done

    I love blueberry bagels and cream cheese. They're probably ... no ... definitely my favorite food. If I was stranded on a desert island and could only take one food with me (nutritional value aside), I would take blueberry bagels and cream cheese. I've often joked (only somewhat kidding...) that I could go on an all-bagel diet (with some proteins beyond cream cheese thrown in for delicious bagelwiches). In fact, I'm eating a blueberry bagel with cream cheese right now (not even one I made in this recipe... while making this recipe, I ate a storebought blueberry bagel with cream cheese).

    Simple Biscuits

    Biscuits

    The vintage Joy of Cooking book I have had always held the answers to almost any question in the kitchen - the last stop before a call to Mom, basically. I've always found its biscuit recipe lacking, though. So when I stumbled across this one when trying to make a biscuit-topped cobbler, I wanted to keep it for posterity:

    Biscuit Dough

    1 tablespoon shortening
    1 cup flour
    2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
    1/8 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup milk

    Mix dry ingredients; cut shortening in with pastry blender or knives. Add milk gradually to make a soft dough. If too soft, add a little more flour.

    Yogurt Sourdough Bread

    this recipe uses the sourness and bacteria from yogurt to fake a sourdough. It's not fantastic, but it's a lot easier than feeding a starter all the time.

    * 1/2 cup plain, nonfat yogurt * 2/3 cup water * 1 tablespoon lemon juice * 1 tablespoon margarine or butter, softened * 3.25 cups bread machine flour * 1 tablespoon sugar * 1.5 teaspoon salt * 3 teaspoons regular active dry yeast OR * 2.75 teaspoons bread machine or quick-acting active dry yeast
