How To Make Homemade Bread – Our Top 5 Go-To Bread Recipes!

Looking to make your own delicious homemade bread? As more and more people look to eat healthier and save on ever rising grocery bills, making bread at home is becoming increasingly popular.

There are actually a whole slew of reasons to bake at least some if not all of your bread. Not only can it save big dollars on your food budget, the flavor, texture and taste of homemade bread can easily surpass that of any store-bought bread.

Let’s face it, perfectly sliced and uniform store bread wasn’t made that way for its great taste. Unfortunately, it’s made that way because it’s inexpensive to create. And, so that a lot of preservatives can be added to ensure a long shelf life. But certainly not for great flavor!

Irish Soda Bread – No Kneading Required! How To Make Homemade Bread

Another one of our favorite “every day” breads, this Irish Soda bread recipe is incredibly delicious and simple to make. Traditional Irish soda bread actually originated out of necessity.

When things were scarce back in the day in Ireland, the basic ingredients for the bread were the easiest to come by. Surprisingly, unlike most bread recipes, yeast is not one of the ingredients. Instead, the recipe calls for baking soda since getting yeast to rise in Ireland’s climate could be difficult.

Since there is no yeast in the recipe, and no need to wait for the yeast to rise, it takes a mere five minutes to prepare. Even better, there is no kneading at all. Talk about a simple, quick and easy recipe! You can find the complete recipe and article here on our site : Irish Soda Bread Recipe
