Classic Rich Bread Classic Rich Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/16/14 10:00 I bake bread regularly, and this is an old recipe from the "Red Star Yeast Centennial Bread Sampler 1981" that I have been making probably since the book came out. It makes a nice, golden, fine-grained sandwich loaf that’s perfect for toast. It's really...
Breakfast Corn Bread Breakfast Corn Bread By The Iowa Housewife 04/07/14 10:00 I liked the “Make it your own!” ideas in the "Midwest Living Comfort Food” and here’s one of them. They used a basic corn bread recipe, giving you the option to choose any cornmeal desired; and to use 1 cup buttermilk, OR 1 cup of sour cream OR a 14 1/2...
Family Favorites...French Bread Braids Family Favorites...French Bread Braids By The Iowa Housewife 04/04/14 10:00 I’m somewhat “braid-challenged”, but the photo of these French bread loaves looked so pretty, I had to try them. The dough was easy to handle, and they are inexpensive to make – they only cost me 88¢ for both loaves! I do buy yeast in 1# bags, which cuts...
Oatmeal Honey Bread Oatmeal Honey Bread By The Iowa Housewife 03/10/14 09:00 This is a little different from my usual oatmeal bread, with the yogurt. I changed the directions to use instant or rapid-rise yeast. Luckily, I had a 7 ½” loaf pan because I use it for my husband’s favorite lemon nut quick bread. This is a nice sandwich-style...
Dilly Casserole Bread Dilly Casserole Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/06/14 10:00 Better slices when cool, tastes so good warm The recipe in the Pillsbury The Best of The Classic Cookbooks for Dilly Bread tempted me to try a loaf. I am not a bread baker but this is a batter type bread and done in a casserole. The recipe was a winner...
Carrot Onion Dill Bread Carrot Onion Dill Bread By The Iowa Housewife 02/05/14 10:00 When Myrna saw this recipe on my blog work list, she didn’t think it sounded very good – I don’t think she was visualizing yeast bread. We liked this tasty, pretty, savory bread – for sandwiches or as toast. My husband thinks I need to add this to my yeast...
 Tropical  Fruit Bread "Tropical" Fruit Bread By The Iowa Housewife 01/27/14 10:00 Myrna and I rarely use Bisquick, but we found a couple of nice cookbooks from them, and bought some mix to share and to try the recipes this week. This is a delicious quick bread with a nice texture– it really should be called “tropical” fruit bread, with...
English Muffin Bread English Muffin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/31/13 10:00 I've looked at recipes for English muffin bread for years and never tried them…I don’t know why, because one of the only bread products I ever buy ready-made is English muffins. I don’t believe I will need to buy them anymore. This bread is great toasted,...
Apricot, Pecan & White Chocolate Bread Apricot, Pecan & White Chocolate Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/19/13 10:00 The second recipe I chose from the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Baking was for another quick bread. This one has apricots, pecans and white chocolate all of which I had on hand. As it is cold and we have slippery roads having everything on hand helped...
Cherry - Golden Raisin Bread Cherry - Golden Raisin Bread By The Iowa Housewife 12/17/13 10:00 I baked a quick bread recipe from the Better Homes and Gardens Christmas Baking 2009 today. The bread is excellent. Great flavor and of course as with any quick bread ease of preparation. Now I have to tell you that for the first time in quite awhile it...
Coffee-filled Banana Bread Stacks Coffee-filled Banana Bread Stacks By The Iowa Housewife 12/11/13 10:00 My husband really, really liked this coffee-flavored banana bread. The coffee flavor in the bread itself is subtle, but in the frosting, because the granules of coffee don’t completely dissolve, you get a burst of coffee flavor. If you don’t want to go...
Cornmeal Yeast Bread Cornmeal Yeast Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/29/13 09:00 This recipe won’t take the place of cornbread, but makes a nice loaf of cornmeal yeast bread. Good with soups or hot dishes, or toasted. We thought the toasted was very good. The bread was easy to make. I did the kneading with my KitchenAid mixer. However,...
Herbed Tomato Bread Herbed Tomato Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/23/13 10:00 This recipe was originally for a bread machine. Since I no longer allocate room for one in my kitchen, I converted to make in my food processor. I simply added my fresh parsley with the dry ingredients and let the processor blade chop it up. I believe next...
Sour Cream Lemon Bread Sour Cream Lemon Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/21/13 10:00 I’m a bread baker, so I had to try this different lemon and sour cream flavored yeast bread. The recipe is for a bread machine (follow your machine directions for sweet dough); so it only makes a small 1 pound loaf. One large lemon is enough for this recipe....
Chicken Little Bread Chicken Little Bread By The Iowa Housewife 10/02/13 10:00 I've been on a bread baking thing this week, and one of the breads I baked was this one from Mrs. W. J. Holahan, of Chicago, Illinois, the Senior winner in the 1966 Pillsbury bake off. This is good with salads or soups, for sandwiches, and even toasted....
Walnut Bread Walnut Bread By The Iowa Housewife 09/30/13 10:00 This loaf, swirled with nuts - is so easy to make and pretty too. It's hard to believe that it only takes 1 minute to mix and get that marbled appearance in your full-size food processor. Walnut bread is popular in France, and is excellent with blue cheese...
Crunchy Italian Bread Sticks Crunchy Italian Bread Sticks By The Iowa Housewife 09/26/13 10:00 Our local Dutch bakery makes crunchy bread sticks and sells a lot of them – they always have them. They are getting more and more expensive to buy, so when I saw this method promising crunchy bread sticks I had to try it. Most bread sticks are soft, but...
Orange Apricot Quick Bread Orange Apricot Quick Bread By The Iowa Housewife 09/12/13 10:00 The quick bread I was going to bake from the FanFare Cookbook was similar to one Sue has already posted. So, I decided to try the recipe for Orange-Apricot Bread instead. Now, I am sure the first choice would have been very good, but I am glad I made this...
Apple Streusel Bread Apple Streusel Bread By The Iowa Housewife 09/03/13 10:00 This is one of my husband’s favorite breads and I have made it often. I found it in an earlier edition of Taste of Home, but also in the "Taste of Home Recipe Card Collection 2002" . The recipe first caught my eye because the contributor was June Formanek...
Family Favorites - Buttermilk Chive Bread Family Favorites - Buttermilk Chive Bread By The Iowa Housewife 03/08/13 10:00 This easy bread recipe is perfect to use Spring chives. These very nice loaves are excellent for ham, egg salad or chicken salad sandwiches and are delicious toasted. If you want to make 1 loaf in the food processor, click here. Buttermilk Chive Bread -...
