Comforting Yeast Bread Recipes
Although yeast bread recipes take a pinch more patience than quick breads, nothing tastes quite as comforting or makes the kitchen smell more inviting.
Baking in a cold kitchen? Turn your microwave into a proof box: Heat 2 cups water in a glass measuring cup for 4 minutes. Move water to back of microwave. Set dough, covered in a bowl, in the center. Shut the door (with microwave off); let rise.
Lunchtime will get a whole lot tastier when sandwiches are made with slices of perfectly soft Potato Loaves.
This from-scratch recipe is suited for any level of cook—even first timers.
Tip: Brush unbaked rolls with lightly beaten egg white and sprinkle with sesame seeds, poppy seeds, and fennel seeds. Or, brush unbaked rolls with melted butter; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, kosher salt, coarsely ground pepper, and dried Italian seasoning.
