Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day {Giveaway} Cookbook Extravaganza Week 2

I first picked up Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day in January of 2010 and I still love it. I really can’t say enough good things about this book- it takes all of the work out of bread baking. Each recipe starts with a basic bread dough that’s easy to throw together and takes no time for rising. Simply use a big container and put the dough in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. This book is full of great recipes for everything from cinnamon rolls to pizza crust. Each takes only a portion of your dough and turns it into something magnificent. It’s also chock full of simple, healthy bread recipes. The only draw back to this book is that most recipes need your dough to rest and come to room temperature before baking. Like any other good bread recipe, this means about 90 minutes of resting/rising. As long as you plan ahead, you should have no problem. Read more about my experience baking from this book here.

Rebecca says:

Pumpernickel, for sure. REAL authentic pumpernickel.

Rose says:

My absolute favorite are rolls that I make, not too high, but chock full of various flours, grains, sprouted seeds, and then near the end of the cooking, I coat with a glaze and add more seeds for the topping. The seeds, sprouts, glaze can vary, but I love to have it with salads and/or soups. Oh oh, I’m getting hungry!!

Berta says:

about 30 years ago when I was a kid going to the swap meet with my Mom, there was a place that sold bread that was so crusty & flakey on the outside & very soft on the inside. I didn’t know what it was called but I guess it was a french bread baguette. I would eat it all walking around the swap meet. They had candy, ice cream… but I loved the bread. Say “swap meet” & that’s my strongest memory
