World Bread Day 2018: Multi-Grain Multi-Seed Sandwich Bread


Homemade sandwich bread, full of grains and seeds!

Baking yeast breads is something I really enjoy doing. It took me a while and a lot of practice to get there though. My first breads were like doorknobs :) Since then, things have gotten a lot better, and I bake all of our bread; whether it's sandwich bread, hamburger buns, or cinnamon rolls. No more store-bought bread or rolls for us anymore!

Zorra from the blog Kochtopf organizes World Bread Day ever year. I just had to submit this simple, yet delicious and nutritious bread to her annual event :)

This sandwich bread is really easy to make. The baked bread is light and airy. It's great as-is or toasted. I like to slice the bread after it has cooled completely and then freeze it. This way I can take out what I need. This dough can also be used to make dinner rolls or (hamburger) buns. I hope you give this recipe a try!

Light and fluffy bread!

ABC - September 2018: Beet and Ginger Cake

Wow, I can't believe it's been so long since my last blog post. What can I say? Life happens! :)

This month's ABC recipe was an interesting one: Beet and Ginger Cake. The recipe also calls for cream cheese frosting, but I chose to leave the cake "naked". I played a little bit with the recipe and made several tweaks which you'll find below.

Moist and flavorful (and nut-free)!

ABC - February 2017: The Browniest Cookies

This month's ABC recipe was fun, quick and delicious: The Browniest Cookies from the blog Smitten Kitchen. Fearing that the cookies would be "too chocolate-y", I made only half the recipe because I didn't want to be "stuck" eating all of them :) You may remember that hubby is not a huge (dark) chocolate fan.

Oh so delicious!

ABC - January 2017: Spinach Sheet Pan Quiche

Happy New Year everyone!! We're starting the ABC year with a new recipe source. After a voting poll on Facebook, the Smitten Kitchen blog got an overwhelming response from our ABC bakers.

To change things up, our first recipe is a savory one: Spinach Sheet Pan Quiche. When I saw this recipe, it reminded me of a spinach quiche I enjoyed for lunch a couple months ago, at a French restaurant.

The recipe was cut in half and baked in a Pyrex 8" x 8" pan. As you may notice in the picture below, I made a crustless version. One of our ABC bakers on Facebook, Dian, baked a crustless version of the quiche earlier this week, and that's where I got the idea from :)


Quiche cut into 8 wedges. Bon appetit!

ABC - Perfect Christmas Stollen

This month's recipe concludes our ABC baking for 2016, and with that, baking from the Weekend Bakery blog. So we went out with a bang: Perfect Christmas Stollen. Soft citrus-y yeast bread, chock full of dried fruit, wrapped around a log of lemon flavored homemade almond paste. What's not to like?
