Great Natural Breads Made Easy

Who can resist the incomparable aroma and fabulous flavor of freshly baked bread? Called the “staff of life” for good reason, wholesome bread has been a dietary staple throughout the world for thousands of years. Today, although commercial breads contain more healthful natural ingredients than they did a generation ago, they simply cannot compete with the taste and nutritional goodness of a whole grain loaf baked in your own oven. The problem has long been that making bread is too difficult—or so it seemed until now. Written by bread-baking expert Bernice Hunt, Great Natural Breads Made Easy is a simple step-by-step guide that enables anyone to make a spectacular loaf of artisan bread—even if they’ve never baked before.

Divided into two parts, the book begins with a brief history of bread, followed by a “basics” chapter that contains information on the key ingredients, simple equipment, and helpful techniques for producing perfect loaves every time. What follows next are seven chapters packed with easy-to-follow recipes for a variety of delectable breads. Among the treasure trove of recipes, you will find yeast bread classics like Honey Whole Wheat, Italian Semolina, Sourdough Rye, Jewish Challah, and French-Style Baguettes; sweet yeast bread choices, such as Caramel Rolls, Hot Cross Buns, and a Swedish Tea Ring that is as beautiful as it is delicious; and taste-tempting quick breads and muffins, sensational flatbreads and rolls, and down-home biscuits and turnovers. You’ll even discover how easy it is to make chewy bagels and those big, fat, soft pretzels that are popular at carnivals and a trademark of the Pennsylvania Dutch. Rounding out the book is a chapter on luscious dips and spreads to accompany your freshly baked loaves. To further insure bread-making success, Lauren Jarrett’s instructional illustrations show exactly how each step is performed.

There is nothing more satisfying than biting into a still-warm-from-the-oven slice of homemade bread. So whether you are a novice baker who has avoided making bread because you thought the process was too difficult, or you are a seasoned bread maker who is looking to expand your repertoire of recipes, it’s time to discover the joys of Great Natural Breads Made Easy. Never has bread making been simpler.
