I am thinking what with winter, and new snow, baking some bread will also keep the kitchen warm and my stomach full. Any good recipes?

I have a amish recipe here it was given to me by a good friend from the Missouri thread

Amish Recipe
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1/3 cup white sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoon active dry yeast
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 cup vegetable oil
6 cups bread flour

1. In a large bowl, dissolve the sugar in warm water and then stir in yeast. Allow to poof until yeast resembles a creamy foam for about 15 minutes.
2. Mix salt and oil into the yeast. Mix in flour one cup at a time. Knead dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Place in a well oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat. Cover with a damp cloth. Allow to rise until doubled in bulk about 1 hour. ( I usually turn on the oven on low heat for a less a minute and turn it off)
3.Punch dough down. Knead for a few minutes, and divide in half. Shape into loaves and place into two well oiled 9x5 inch loaf pans. Allow to rise for 30 minutes or until dough has risen 1 inch above pans.
4.Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes. Please watch this because when I cooked for a full 30 min it got a little to brown and hard. It really depends on your oven.

I also used this recipe to make cinnamon rolls. Which is to die for.... My hubby loves them and keeps asking me for more and more. LOL

If your new at making bread check out this video on how to make bread. It helped me alot.How to Bake Bread - Basic Bread Making Recipes

Thanks for that recipe. Tomorrow I'll pull out my bread recipes and post one or two.

Haven't made any in ages.

This is from a wonderful friend of mine who is no longer with us. It's unusual in that you start with a cold oven, not a preheated one.

Cuban Bread

2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon salt
8 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon cornmeal
2 tablespoons cold water · · ·

In large bowl dissolve the yeast in the warm water. Add sugar and salt and mix well. Stir in 7 cups of the flour.
On a well-floured surface, knead dough for 7 minutes, incorporating in the last cup of flour. Place dough in a greased bowl. Let rise until doubled.
Using a lightly floured board, form dough into 2 long or round loaves. Sprinkle cornmeal on greased baking sheet; place loaves on top. Slash top with a sharp knife. Cover, and let rise until almost doubled.
Brush top of loaves with cold water. Place in a cold oven.
Turn oven to 400 degrees F . Bake for 45 minutes, or until nicely browned. Brush twice during baking time with cold water.

Soften yeast in 1/4 cup water, add to cooled milk mixture.
Then add yeast, eggs, 3 cups of flour and mix until smooth
Add in 2 eggs, mix.
Turn out onto floured board.
Knead until dough is smooth.
Place in greased bowl and let rise until doubled.
Divide dough into 12 equal sized mound.

True, bread can be an addictive loaf, but less can also be more.

It's a little like a cinnamon roll; it's a Mexican bread, a little lighter in texture and yes easier in some ways to make.
