Japanese Milk Bread

This has almost the same texture as brioche but uses less butter. The first time one tries a recipe, it probably turns out really good. Usually because you are careful to follow the instructions, or at least are very conscious of the substitutions you are making and the steps you are taking. But then the…

Soft Milk Bread Rolls

To quote Biko Zulu “I love writers who use very simple words and make deceptively simple, beautiful sentences.” Alexander Lobrano, writing for Saveur (May 2, 2016) creates that kind of beauty. “It started, of course, with baguettes. I’d finish one on my own in a day: half for breakfast, sliced horizontally and toasted, a process…

Chocolate Brioche

The CO-VID 19 pandemic has us stuck at home and many are baking bread. So here comes another bread recipe for you to try. Something a little more adventurous than the selection seen below: We have enough time to try it out and get creative with it. This post was inspired pre-corona though. It was…

Gluten-free Bread

This rice-flour bread is yummy-for-the-world. Rita says she got this gluten-free bread recipe from Noreen’s kitchen and “someone-else’s kitchen”—she can’t quite remember—and combined the recipes to get this amazing bread. This is a great bread for breakfast and sandwiches. Something to note is the bread is best stored in the fridge in a plastic bag….

Homemade Bread

This bread is soft and fluffy and the perfect in between of not a light yet not a dense bread. It’s great for breakfast, sandwiches, or as a side with spaghetti and meatballs, or just simple bread and cheese. This recipe makes two loaves and the rise time is about an hour. In the past…
