Bread recipes that are somewhere between sweet and savory.
Caffè Latte Bread
Ground coffee, cocoa, milk, and a spoon full of sugar. It’s a visit to the coffee shop – but in loaf form.
Sumac Currant Bread
Pinkish purple crumb with a fresh, almost fruity, flavor.
Broadmoor Baker’s Bread
Many moons ago, my Mom had a website (www.thebreadworks.com). Each month, she added a new recipe to the “Recipe of the Month” section. This recipe is the selection from January 2002 which is pretty much pre-Cambrian in terms of internet history.
The introduction to this recipe in my Mom’s cookbook, Breads From Betsy’s Kitchen, says: “Pita bread is a staple of the Middle East. It goes by different names in various countries – Peda, Pide, Pitta, Ramadan Bread. It is flat bread that puffs up when baked on the bottom of a hot oven.”
Not Too Sweet Chocolate Coffee Bread
I was tempted to call this Coffee Chocolate Sex Bread but I couldn’t quite figure out how that third part would work. I mean, what a trifecta though! I tacked on the “not too sweet” because the coffee and coffee flour add the bass notes while the chocolate plays the melody. That would be so cool if it made sense.
Sprouted Sunflower Seed Spelt Bread
Because alliteration is cool. And pretentious. You want to know what’s even more pretentious than alliteration? Using goat milk, that’s what.
Dark Cherry Chia Boule
Happy International Women’s Day! Make this awesome bread for the amazing woman of your choice. Seriously. Doesn’t even need to be someone you know. Just bake and deliver. Bread pretty much says, “You are awesome” all by itself.
No-Knead Parker House Rolls
I served these to some friends at a recent dinner party. They were soft, light, and buttery. Which is how I like my friends.
Basic White Learning Loaf
No matter where she traveled or who she taught, my Mom found that the best way to get folks to overcome their initial fear about baking was to start with a basic white learning loaf.
Cranberry Flaxseed Boule
Fresh cranberries soaked in rum, rolled in cane sugar, and baked in a bread laden with flaxseed. Really, really yummy bread. And yes, of course I drank the rum. And no, I’m not a lush. And possibly, I might be fibbing… but not about the bread.
