12 Delicious Bread Recipes {How to Make Bread}

Today we have bread….glorious bread.  In fact, we have 12 delicious bread recipes that teach you not only how to make bread at home, but how to make delicious, flavorful bread that can accompany any meal. From sweet breads to the savory, it’s always hard to resist the bread basket on the table. Sure, it may require an extra session on the elliptical, but it is so worth it, no?

Bon Apetit!

Banana Bread

I {heart}Banana Bread. When I was pregnant with my twins, I swore the reason I got popped with Gestational Diabetes was because I had just eaten and loaf and a half of Banana Bread the day before.

What? Being pregnant with multiples makes you hungry!

So when I saw all the different ways for making this delicious bread, and since I no longer have the doctors by my hospital bed monitoring my every indulgence, I couldn’t resist including many options in Tip Junkie’s Bread recipe roundup.

Strawberry Banana Bread Strawberries and Banana are always a fabulous combination for a sweet breakfast bread like this one.

Chocolate Banana Bread I’ll take chocolate banana bread over a cupcake any day! This recipe adds in strong coffee to compliment and bring out the sweetness of the banana. Like the recipe author says on her site, “Sometimes it’s good to be bad”

Chocolate Swirl Peanut Butter Banana Bread Create a homemade chocolate syrup to swirl into the peanut butter and banana bread mixture and you have a delectable bread to accompany your morning coffee.

Wheat Blueberry Banana Bread Making a wheat version of Banana bread is a great way to add a healthier element to this indulgence. Add in the antioxidant benefit of blueberries and a honey sweetened versus granulated sugar mixture and  you have a win-win!

Poppyseed Bread

Lemon Poppyseed Just enough poppyseed instead of too much makes for a nice balance with the lemony flavor of this bread. The recipe owner includes a recommendation to top the bread with limoncello but offers up a glaze alternative if you don’t have that on hand.

Almond Poppyseed A nutty version of the poppyseed bread complete with a powdered sugar and milk glaze makes for a perfect compliment to morning tea or coffee.

Sweet Breads

Pumpkin Bread The author offers up two versions of this pumpkin bread – add almonds or ginger to liven up a traditional pumpkin bread recipe.

Monkey Bread This sweet cinnamon and brown sugar pull-apart bread is perfect to satisfy a family of sweet tooths.  As the author puts it, monkey bread is “like getting the best part of the cinnamon roll, the ooey, gooey middle in every bite.” **Please note, the recipe must be refrigerated overnight prior to baking.

Savory Breads

Cheese and Chive Bread Cheese, chives and walnuts makes for a superbly savory loaf of dinner bread. Add a leftover hunk to accompany a bowl of soup at lunchtime the next day to round out two satisfying meals.

Feta and Herb Pull Apart Bread Combine Feta with Herbs to stuff the center of this pull apart for a greek flavored bread option.

Which of the recipes above would you try?

  1. I would love to try the Savory Cheese and Chive Bread but I am NOT spending $40 on a cookbook.

  2. Try this: www food DOT com/recipeprint.do?rid=440275

  3. I am with you… that was the only recipe that I was interested in too! 🙁

  4. I agree and i thought the point of this website was to show you how to make the stuff pictured. Not that I am not all for supporting people in their endeavors, but I was a little to surprised to find the recipe not available. However, good luck to Dorie with her cook book!

  5. These cakes make me drool! Such great ideas to have for a birthday party!

  6. Thank you! That’s just what I needed!

  7. No recipe available for the only one I want…..don’t need more cookbooks. Can get more than enough recipes from other sites. Bye, Bye, to this one.

  8. My mouth was watering just hearing the descriptions; and almost licking the screen when the pictures popped up!!

  9. I would love to try any of the first three…..if somebody could tell me if it comes out well in an egg-less version too?
    Does it??

  10. Hey Tambry –

    It’s a bummer that the Savory Cheese and Chive Bread isn’t a traditional tutorial and recipe like we normally feature her on Tip Junkie. But it looked SO yummy that we just couldn’t help but show it to you. Above Janie, shared a recipe for the same bread: http://www.food.com/recipeprint.do?rid=440275 This is a great hookup.

  11. Hey Keri –

    You’re right Tip Junkie is all about free tutorials but it’s also about finding the best and most creative! Nicole fell in love with this bread and just had to show it to you.

    Above Janie, shared a recipe for the same bread: http://www.food.com/recipeprint.do?rid=440275, so all is well. {wink}

  12. Hey Sandra,

    Above in the comments Janie shared a recipe for the same bread with a recipe, here you go: http://www.food.com/recipeprint.do?rid=440275. Tip Junkie loves to promote free tutorials and recipes but sadly there won’t always be a fully pictured step-by-step tutorial. We also want to stretch and inspire you!

    I truly feel passionate that it’s really important to also promote women in business. We found a great recipe for you to use for the Savory Cheese and Chive Bread, so it’s all good.

    Thanks for including my monkey bread in your delicious roundup. I’d like to have a little nibble of each one.

  15. The Chocolate Banana Breads look delicious! I can’t wait to try them =)

  16. Thank you so much for including me in your wonderful round-up. I really appreciate the link and hope you and all your readers have a great day. Blessings…Mary

  17. My website offers a new recipe for a wheat and white flour bread that uses yeast and extra ingredients including a high tech stabilizer (but not gluten) . An alum. liner can be used to support four inch tall bread in a “short” standard 9×5 inch pan or you can use a jumbo heavy foil pan in combination with the std. pan.
