I am looking for an easy bread recipe.
Yield 8 servings
1/2 cup white sugar 4 cups all-purpose flour 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon baking soda 3/4 teaspoon salt 3 cups raisins 1 tablespoon caraway seeds 2 eggs, lightly beaten 1 1/4 cups buttermilk 1 cup sour cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch round cast iron skillet or a 9 inch round baking or cake pan.
In a mixing bowl, combine flour (reserving 1 tablespoon), sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, raisins and caraway seeds. In a small bowl, blend eggs, buttermilk and sour cream. Stir the liquid mixture into flour mixture just until flour is moistened. Knead dough in bowl about 10 to 12 strokes. Dough will be sticky. Place the dough in the prepared skillet or pan and pat down. Cut a 4x3/4 inch deep slit in the top of the bread. Dust with reserved flour
Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) oven for 65 to 75 minutes. Let cool and turn bread onto a wire rack.
If you want to email me I will share my bread recipes with you. winbergma AT hotmail.com I am not home for another few days but do make a lot of bread and would be glad to share with anyone. I have a wonder full french bread recipe just recently tried that I will post soon as I get home.
Cheddar and Chive Beer Bread
You can substitute the chives with basil, cilantro, or even minced onions as yummy variations ;-)
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
2 tbsp fresh chives, chopped, or 2 tsp dried
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated
12 oz. beer, room temperature
Preheat oven to 375°.
Combine flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, chives, and cheddar in a large mixing bowl. Slowly stir in beer and mix just until combined. Batter will be thick.
Spread in a greased 8-inch loaf pan and bake about 45 minutes. (Test after 40 minutes with a toothpick to be on the safe side)
Cool on a rack for 10 minutes. Remove from pan and cool 10 more minutes before serving.
Go to youtube.com and type in "Artisan Bread in five minutes a day." You will find an amazing recipe. It is delicious, and uses regular unbleached flour, not expensive bread flour. I've been baking it for a few weeks and can't believe how easy it is. No kneading, no hard mixing. And tastes wonderful. There's a website too and lots of forums about it.
Bake about 425 degrees for 20 minutes
Makes 1- 2 dozen
1 cup lukewarm water
1/3 cup melted shortening (butter)
1 T sugar
2 tsps salt
2 pkgs of dry yeast
pinch of ginger (ginger helps rolls rise better - gives no flavor)
3 1/2 cups of sifted flour
Mix until dough is well blended and soft.
Roll out: on a well floured board and fit into a greased 12 X 18 pan
Cut: dough into 1 X 4 inch rectangles and brush with melted butter.
Let rise: in a warm place (80 to 85 degrees) until double in bulk about 30 minutes.
In a hot oven for 20 minutes or until rolls rise and tops are lightly browned.
Good leftover for bread pudding or simply butter and toast.
