Wednesday Recipe Roundup {Breads}

It’s been a few weeks since I have posted any recipes, so how about some really easy and yummy ones?! My kids love helping to make bread just about as much as they love eating it. Who doesn’t love sinking their hands into some ooey-gooey dough? These recipes are fabulous and I hope you enjoy them, too.

Easy Crusty Bread (no kneading required)

This bread was so much fun to make and it was delicious, too. I made the cheese, rosemary and lemon version and nearly devoured the whole loaf by myself. This is not only great to have on hand for dinner, but it makes a lovely gift as well.

Dragon Bread (honey wheat bread)

The kids and I made this bread several months ago. Although our dragon didn’t look as good as we had hoped, the bread itself was delicious! This recipe for honey wheat bread is phenomenal (the link for just the dough recipe is here) Even if you don’t want to mold it into a dragon, you should certainly give the bread recipe a try.

Chocolate Banana Bread

If you are looking for a fun twist on an old classic, this is the way to go! I have tried several different versions of chocolate banana bread and most have turned out too sweet and more cake-like. This recipe, however, was just right. I actually reduced the sugar just a bit and used dark chocolate chips in place of the milk chocolate chips. It turned out great.

Old-style Southern Biscuits

I’m a born and raised Southern girl and oh how I love me some biscuits! I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but the reviews were awesome. I’ve been on the lookout for a good biscuit recipe for some time now. I think I was drawn to this one in particular because you get to whack the dough instead of kneading it, just like they used to do years ago. I can’t wait to try this recipe, it should provide some much needed stress relief and yummy biscuits both at the same time, it’s a win-win.

    Don’t know why you were disappointed in the dragon bread because I think it looks awesome. I’m not much of a baker but I’ll definitely have to give the chocolate banana nut bread a shot. My mom has made banana nut bread in the past and this looks like a delicious twist on an old favorite. Thanks for the info.
