Easy Sour Cream Biscuits

Easy Sour Cream Biscuits by Salad Foodie

Quick to the table because there's no cutting of shortening into flour mixture. Just stir in sour cream, knead lightly, pat out, cut and bake. Couldn't be simpler to get homemade biscuits on the table. I like to use up the tail end of the sour cream this way.

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS

BASIC YEAST DOUGH FOR STEAMED BUNS by Linda Tay Esposito

This is a recipe for the dough of the fluffy white skins of the char siu bao and the shanghai cabbage buns. It's truly versatile -- you can use the same dough and fill it with sweetened mashed red beans or lotus seeds for a dessert treat. Or just steam it by itself to turn it into "man tou" essentially steamed white bread that is…

Overnight Refrigerator Yeast Rolls

Overnight Refrigerator Yeast Rolls by Salad Foodie

Refrigerator yeast rolls are the answer to busy days and holiday dinners. Divide the roll making process into two days and three steps: make, shape and bake! This is based on a recipe from bhg.com, which has a few variations using this method (see "Useful Links" below). I stayed fairly close to the original recipe, though lazy me,…

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude!

Buttermilk and Butter Biscuits - with Attitude! by Salad Foodie

Playing with a biscuit recipe one day I pondered…..what if I subbed butter for the shortening and added some kick-up seasonings? The result got great reviews from guests…. and hours later and at room temp, the “attitude” was delightfully more pronounced.....mm-m! Buttermilk makes them tender and light, while the butter…..oh the…

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread

Blue Cornmeal Cornbread by Salad Foodie

Blue cornmeal imparts a blue-violet cast to the bread, a coarser consistency and a sweeter, nuttier taste than yellow or white cornmeal. It is 20% higher in protein and has a lower glycemic index, good news for those with elevated blood sugar. However it can be difficult to find! Arrowhead and Bob's Red Mill make it and some health…

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Favorite Whole Wheat Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

My whole wheat bread of choice. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on the whole wheat setting, then INTERRUPT the cycle just before baking begins; that way I have a built-in bread mixer, kneader and proof oven, but I get to shape and control the baking to perfection, and have bread…

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional)

Multi-Grain Bread (Bread Machine or Conventional) by Salad Foodie

An all-around favorite in our family. Serve with homemade soup, use for grilled sandwiches and as toast. The variety of grains provides a nutty texture. But if you don’t have all the grains on hand, just sub whole wheat for the same amounts. Can be made conventional yeast method, but I always START with my Toshiba Bread Machine on…

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method)

Beer Bread (by Bread Machine or Conventional Bread Method) by Salad Foodie

This recipe for Beer Bread has a fine grain, firm crust, light volume, nice moist quality plus a slight taste similar to sourdough. I use the bread machine as a convenience - to make the dough and proof it. Then I interrupt the cycle just prior to the baking function so I can shape to a regular loaf pan, give it an extra and final…

Whole Wheat and Rye Bread with Sunflower Seeds

Whole Wheat and Rye Bread with Sunflower Seeds by Salad Foodie

Whole wheat and rye flours combine with toasted sunflower seeds to make a flavorful bread with an even grain and chewy texture. Small loaf pans are ideal for baking if the end purposes are hors d'oeuvres, sliders, or open faced mini-sandwiches. To save time I used a bread machine on its dough setting for the preliminary mixing and…

Southern Corn Bread

Southern Corn Bread by Salad Foodie

I was hesitant to try this because it was different than any corn bread I’ve ever made. The proportion of corn meal to flour for one, and then hardly any sugar. Now having made it I’ve decided southerners have it all right about corn bread, and I prefer this to the usual sweet variety. I like to use one third of the cornmeal as…

French Bread by Bread Machine

French Bread by Bread Machine by Salad Foodie

This recipe requires the French Bread setting on my bread machine, best suited for bread doughs low in fat and sugar; this results in a crisp crust and coarse, chewy exterior. (It is similar to the Whole Wheat setting though not identical.....but just might work.) However if neither are available on your machine you could use the…

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine)

French Bread by Traditional Yeast Method (no bread machine) by Salad Foodie

Experimenting with several ways to get a good loaf of French bread without using my bread machine, I am ready to share this version over all I tried. It has a chewy crust and a beautiful fine grain. While my bread machine version (see "Useful Links" below) takes only about 5 minutes of active chef time, this recipe requires perhaps 35…
