Does anyone bake!?

I want to make homemade bread tonight, but the problem is, I can't find my recipe and I haven't done it in a while! Does anyone have one that I could use!?

  • Ever tried mayonnaise muffins? Taste just like yeast rolls and you make them in 5 minutes. It's 1 C. self-rising flour, 2 T. mayo, and 1/2 c. milk. If you like a sweeter bread, add a couple of T. of sugar. Stir together. Drop in greased muffin tins and bake at 425 until browned(prob. about 15 min.) This will make 6 muffins. If you need more, just double or triple the recipe. They are a family favorite at our house and so easy you can have them often.

  • Here's our family's favorite white bread recipe. It's soft on the inside and a mixture of chewy/crispy for the crust. You can make it in the bread machine, a large stand mixer with a dough hook or even by hand:

    Rice Bread:
    * 1/2 cup cooked white or brown rice
    * 1 1/2 Tbsp. (1 Tbsp. + 1 1/2 tsp.) vegetable or canola oil
    Put these two ingredients in a 2 cup measuring cup and add enough warm water to make 1 1/2 c. Dump into bread machine pan or mixing bowl.

    * 2 Tbsp. sugar
    * 2 tsp. salt
    * 3 cups all purpose flour (I've used all purpose or whole wheat, even a mix of both)
    * 1 1/2 tsp. active dry yeast.

    If using a bread machine, set to desired setting and start. I prefer to use the dough cycle then take the dough out and form a loaf, let rise in my bread pan and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
    If using a stand mixer, add the flour last, cup by cup. If mixing by hand I will also add th

  • If mixing by hand I will also add the flour at the last and then knead for 6 to 8 minutes before letting it rise, covered, in a greased bowl. Form into a loaf, let rise in bread pan and bake 350 for 30 minutes. Remove from pan immediately.
