    Mini French Bread Baguettes

    If you've been intimidated by the thought of baking bread, take heart: It's not hard, especially if you "cheat" by working the dough in a stand mixer. (Professional bakers do it all the time.)

    Authentic Brioche

    True brioche—the classic French yeast bread that’s rich and golden with butter and eggs, boasting a paper-thin crust and a silky, tender crumb—is a rare and wonderful thing. But as special as it is, brioche isn’t difficult to make.

    Real Irish Soda Bread

    This authentic Irish soda bread uses just four ingredients you likely have on hand: flour, salt, baking soda, and buttermilk (raisins and caraway seeds are an American addition). It's a simple loaf with a beautifully browned, craggy crust and a nice chew.

    Knotted Dinner Rolls

    Soft, rich, and worlds better than store-bought, these gorgeous, buttery dinner rolls also make a most excellent sandwich.

    Cinnamon-Swirl Raisin Bread

    If you're new to the bread-baking scene, this is an excellent place to start. Packed with plump, juicy raisins and rich cinnamon swirls, this easy-to-make bread is guaranteed to please.
  • Recipe

    Rye Bread

    Many people associate the flavor of rye bread with caraway because loaves of it often feature the seeds. This lighter, airier rye bread does not, which means you can actually taste how the rye flour affects the flavor.
  • Recipe


    A great focaccia is all about the crust, and this recipe delivers. Although the making of the bread is spread over two days, the actual hands-on time is quite short.
  • Recipe


    Challah is traditionally served at the Jewish Sabbath, but why limit this finely grained, tender bread, to Friday night? (Especially given that it makes such wonderful French toast?) Though it looks truly impressive, the dough is hardy and forgiving and needs very little kneading.
  • Recipe

    Rustic Whole-Wheat Walnut Bread

    A combination of coarse and fine whole-wheat flours plus coarsely chopped walnuts give this bread a more interesting texture than most.
  • Recipe

    Yuca Bread with Queso Fresco

    The ratio of flour to cheese seems crazy, but it works. Serve the bread hot (for a spongy texture) or warm (for a denser interior with the dough settling more and forming air pockets).
