I have never made a yeast bread before. My mom has been making her orange marmalade bread for 30 years now. I have always had the recipe but was scared to try and make it. I would say I am a novice in the kitchen when it comes to cooking and maybe moderate when it comes to baking (don't bake alot) well so far so good. It's rising nicely in the bowl and then when it doubles in size I have to punch it down cut the dough in half and place each piece in a well greased loaf pan and let it rise again then bake it. This recipe makes 2 loaves. I am off this week so I thought I'd try this. The bread also has honey in it. It tastes great toasted with butter or jam.I'll let you know the outcome later today once it's baked.

Good luck. I hope it turns out good. I have a simple recipe for white bread that I make about once a week in winter. We don't like store bought light bread any more after eating it.

If this turns out good I might try and make other yeast breads. This one is almost like a honey oatmeal bread with marmalade, since there are oats in it. My mom makes bricohe too which is next on my list to try and bake.

One of my favorites is Angel Biscuits.

Angel Biscuits Recipe | Taste of Home Recipes

This recipe is almost exactly what I use, except I use lard instead of shortening, and I use some whole wheat flour instead of white flour exclusively.

I for a yeast loaf, try a good potato bread. Again I use some whole wheat instead of all white flour and lard instead of shortening.

This recipe is similar to mine: Potato Bread III Recipe - Allrecipes.com

I will on occasion use molasses or raw sugar instead of white sugar as well, Add a bit of extra, and roll out thin after the first rising cover with maple syrup, cinnamon, and pecans, roll, slice, let it rise, and bake and have a semi healthy cinnamon roll for breakfast

When I was a teenager, I made a lot of homeade yeast breads--white, Italian and sweet breads with yeast. I made a french chocolate coffee cake w/ yeast, boy, after you eat it fresh you can freshen it up again and again by re-heating a piece. I've made homeade (yeast) donuts, too. After they were deep fried, the were dipped in chocolate, then nuts. Cinnamon raisin bread is probably one of my favorites and white bread.
I had a bread thingy in my last oven that did it for you, you just added the ingredients, but there's something special about making your own breads.

Looks great - thanks for posting

I make cinnamon rolls. I don't make the icing because I think they are sweet enough. - TheNest.com

Well I gave one loaf to my neighbor and she tasted it and said it was excellent. Her 2 yr old son was saying MMMM as he was eating it. Her 2 older daughters loved it too. In the 1 hour I was over there chatting half the loaf was gone. I am freezing the other one I made for now. I will be making 2 more loaves tomorrow, giving one to my mom and one to a friend. Let's see if my mom thinks it's as good as hers LOL.

I love baking bread at home...learned when I was a kid...everything was done by hand back then...
The kneading was the most tiring part...I remember one time I beat the dough so hard on the bread board that I broke it(the board)...Mom was not happy about that...

Now-a-days I use a bread machine...just dump everything in and the machine does the rest...
Have tried a few times to mix it all by hand but I don't have the strength in my hands anymore, and the rising part is iffy at times...so the machine is the best way for me...
As for types, I make potato bread most often,using both whole wheat and bread flour...also make oatmeal, & whole wheat some...have at least 6 bread machine cookbooks to choose from so there are lots of recipes to try...

Cardamom bread from an old cookbook, called Swedish Food.
It is a sweet bread with a yummy smell.

I only make Challah, so I don't bother with a bread machine. It's yeasty and eggy. The recipe I use calls for 6 eggs and 8-9 cups of flour, with 2 yeast cakes. It's triple-risen - you rise it, punch it down, rise it again, punch it down, braid the loaves, let it rise again, do the egg wash over the top, and THEN bake it.

The hardest part is blending the liquids with the solids. You really need a wooden paddle for that and my hands get cramped up after awhile.

I make a few variations - some I add raisins and cinnamon and sugar, some I add shaved hershey bar and sprinkle cocoa powder over the egg wash.
