The Bread That Never Fails

I'm sure that this bread recipe doesn't turn out perfect for everyone every time, but you will find it is so simple, easy and you will be hooked.  I personally have only had incredible results with it.  I received this recipe from a friend who not only is a great cook but an incredible photographer.  She took our family pictures a few years ago and considering what she had to work with they were amazing!! You can check her and her work out here.  Anyway back to the bread one word it is delicious!! 
The Bread That Never Fails
3 cups warm water
1/3 cup oil
1/3 cup honey
1 1/2 Tablespoons Yeast (4 1/2 teaspoons)

Mix together for 1 minute. Let sit for 10 minutes until spongy.
Then add:
1 Tablespoon salt
4-8+ cups wheat flour (it took me 8 and I uses half wheat/half white flour)

Start with 4 and add just enough that the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl. Knead for 2 minutes. Shape into a big ball. Cut into three pieces and shape into loaves.
 Place in greased bread pans. Let rise just to the top of the pan. 
Set the oven temperature to 350 degrees and put your loaves in.  Bake for 30 minutes or until the loaves are golden and sound hollow when you tap on them. 

I always rub the tops of my loaves with butter when they first come out of the oven.  Something my grandma always used to do and it adds a little bit of flavor to the bread!!
Thanks Angie!


  1. Sounds like a good recipe to try! I still have your Grandma's rolls in by bookmarked recipes, hope to get the courage up to make them one day:@)

  2. It does look absolutely delicious - and on a chilly fall day, there's nothing like the smell of bread fresh from the oven!

  3. Look how amazing your bread looks! Why can't I make yeast bread that beautiful?!?! I'll try your recipe and see if I can do it. Your cinnamon rolls were amazing and I actually did it. We'll see if I can do this one too. Thanks for another great recipe!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
