Bean soaking method: Cook's Illustrated The Science of Good Cooking. Stewy Beans adapted from Marcella Hazan's Essentials of Classic Italian Cooking (In the book, the recipe is called "White Bean Soup with Garlic and Parlsey") This is a half recipe, so if you wish to make more, double the quantities keeping the cup of water/stock the same. Marcella adds parsley (no sage) to her beans, so if that sounds nice, go for it — she adds the parsley at the very end. She also purées a half cup of the…

This is the BEST focaccia. The key? A long, slow overnight rise in the refrigerator, which creates a light airy crumb and those beautiful dimples on the surface, which catch oil and salt and are oh so tasty. This dough takes 5 minutes to stir together — do it before you go to bed; you'll be so happy you did when you break into the bread the following evening. #focaccia #bread #homemade #easy #best #overnight #refrigerator

Notes: The bread: This is a sticky, no-knead dough, so, some sort of baking vessel, such as pyrex bowls (about 1-L or 1-qt) or ramekins for mini loaves is required to bake this bread. See notes below the recipe for sources. You can use a bowl that is about 2 qt or 2 L in size to bake off the whole batch of dough (versus splitting the dough in half) but do not use this size for baking half of the dough — it is too big.

Homemade English Muffins: Yes. You. Can. Make this batter at night; then reap the reward of a homemade egg sandwich or eggs benedict or simply a warm muffin spread with butter and jam in the morning. Such a treat! #homemade #english #muffins #whole #wheat #flour #baking

Adapted from Peter Reinhart’s Artisan Bread Every Day This dough is very wet, like batter, so you will need English muffin rings or something similar (empty tuna cans, Ball jar rings, etc.) to constrain the dough. The key with this recipe is to be sure to portion the dough into 10 rings. I only have 8 English muffin rings, and twice I’ve divided the batter into those 8 rings, and twice I’ve been disappointed — it’s very hard to cook the muffins all the way through on the griddle when they…

Super Seedy Sandwich Bread with Sprouted Wheat. This is a basic no-knead sandwich bread made with sprouted wheat flour and coated in seeds. There are three recipes here: one for 1 loaf, 2 loaves, and 3 loaves - I like making 3: keeping one loaf handy for toast and sandwiches, and slicing and freezing the second two to have on hand for later in the week. #bread #noknead #sandwich #sproutedwheat #seeds

The Best Zucchini Bread: This is a quick bread made with brown sugar and white, eggs and oil, and the result is a super moist zucchini bread that makes a wonderful addition to breakfast coffee or afternoon tea all summer long! I have been making this recipe for years, an oldie but such a goodie, a hit with adults and children alike. #zucchini #bread #summer #quickbread

Notes: Baking by weight is always a good idea. Regarding flour, if you have a scale (this one costs $9!), weigh out 227 g flour. If you are using cups, use 2 cups, but fill them lightly. Loaf pans come in all different sizes. I love these Chicago Metallic standard 8.5 x 4.5-inch loaf pans and these Chicago Metallic mini loaf pans, which are so handy to have on hand around the holidays. If you use as much as a pound of zucchini, I highly recommend baking this bread in a 10x5-inch baking pan…

Bagels require kneading, shaping, boiling, and egg washing. But they can still be easy-ish. I find these to be just that, kind of fun to make, very tasty, and perfect for my ideal breakfast this time of year: bagel   cream cheese   tomato ... does it get any better? #bagel #diy #homemade #foodprocessor

Equipment Notes: As noted above, I find a scale to be imperative here: I use it to weigh not only the flour but also the water, salt, and yeast. A large sheet pan is so handy — it fits all 12 bagels at once. If you don't have a large one, use two standard sheet pans, and bake 6 on each. You'll need a spider or a slotted spoon to remove the bagels from the boiling water to a sheet pan. A food processor or stand mixer will allow you to knead the dough quickly and powerfully. I love my 14-cup…

Super Moist and Delicious Pumpkin Bread — this is a longtime family favorite, a recipe my mother has been making for decades. It's made with oil, as opposed to butter, and the batter comes together in minutes. The texture of the cake is super moist, and it stays moist for days, making it a great one to make ahead of time. It also makes a great gift. #pumpkin #bread #fall #baking

Loaf Pans: I love this Chicago Metallic 8.5 x 4.5 – inch loaf pan for this recipe. You need two pans for this recipe. Mini loaf pans can be purchased here. Disposable loaf pans can be purchased here, too. Canned Pumpkin: Some cans are 15 ounces; others are 16 ounces. It doesn't matter - use the full can of whichever you purchase.

Bialys are often likened to bagels, but they are so much simpler to make! I like to do a long, slow, overnight rise with bialys — it creates beautiful air pocket and a light crumb. The onion-poppy seed-breadcrumb filling-topping is irresistible. #bialys #noknead #homemade #breakfast

Recipe slightly adapted from Paul Krebs of Schenectady County Community College. Method adapted from Jim Lahey. Krebs recommends using a high-protein flour. For the Lahey dough and for these bialys, I am partial to Tipo 00 flour. As always, SAF instant yeast is my preference. Notes: You don't have to make these bialys using the no-knead, long, slow rise method. If you want to make them in the same day, increase the yeast to 2 teaspoons, and decrease the water to 2¾ cups. Knead the dough by…

THE BEST Irish Soda Bread — so simple and satisfying! Here are two recipes: one calls for 100% all-purpose flour; the other calls for a mix of whole wheat, all-purpose, and wheat germ, which produces a slightly denser but no less delicious, chewy, tangy loaf. Each dough takes about 5 minutes to mix-up and each will be ready to be slathered with butter and marmalade about an hour later. #irish #soda #bread #buttermilk #simple #castiron #skillet #stpatricksday

This recipe is inspired by this one from Simply Recipes. I add more salt — I find 2 teaspoons of salt for every 4 cups of flour to be about right. And instead of working 4 tablespoons of butter into the dough as you would for biscuits or scones, I use 2 tablespoons of melted butter. This Irish soda bread still resembles a biscuit but has less of that biscuity/scone feel. If you want to use whole grain flour in your soda bread, use these ingredients, which are inspired by an America's Test…
