TWD White Loaves

I am so happy that Tuesdays With Dorie is back! I was a part of it for a while up until the end of last year when I had to take a bit of a blogging break. Now we’re both back, and we’re working out of a new Dorie Greenspan cookbook titled Baking with Julia.

Our first recipe is called White Loaves, and it’s exactly what you think it is: a delicious, easy white bread. Read More

Did you know January is Bread Machine Baking Month? I didn’t either but I’m apparently aligned with the universe because I’ve used my machine no less than a dozen times since the start of the new year.

TWD: Oatmeal Breakfast Bread

This week’s Tuesdays with Dorie is Oatmeal Breakfast Bread, chosen by Natalie of Oven Love.

I really enjoyed making this bread, and I liked it even more than I didn’t even have to break out the mixer for it! I followed the recipe exactly as it was written without any tweaks, other than I used dried cranberries for the fruit.

My favorite part of the bread was definitely the crusty topping, which is made with brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped pecans. I wasn’t crazy about the bread itself, it was just a little too heavy for me, though it was good and the kids liked it. I’d make it again if they request it.
