Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day {Giveaway} Cookbook Extravaganza Week 2

by Cassidy Stockton in Contests, Featured Articles

I first picked up Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day in January of 2010 and I still love it. I really can’t say enough good things about this book- it takes all of the work out of bread baking. Each recipe starts with a basic bread dough that’s easy to throw together and takes no time for rising. Simply use a big container and put the dough in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. This book is full of great recipes for everything from cinnamon rolls to pizza crust. Each takes only a portion of your dough and turns it into something magnificent. It’s also chock full of simple, healthy bread recipes. The only draw back to this book is that most recipes need your dough to rest and come to room temperature before baking. Like any other good bread recipe, this means about 90 minutes of resting/rising. As long as you plan ahead, you should have no problem. Read more about my experience baking from this book here.

  1. My absolute favorite are rolls that I make, not too high, but chock full of various flours, grains, sprouted seeds, and then near the end of the cooking, I coat with a glaze and add more seeds for the topping. The seeds, sprouts, glaze can vary, but I love to have it with salads and/or soups. Oh oh, I’m getting hungry!!

  2. Crusty lean bread, low-yeast & slow rise. Sometimes all white flour and sometimes with a handful of whole wheat with butter please! (I also love sweet sandwich bread with graham flour, bagels, cinnamon rolls and more.)

  3. I adore any bread that is lovingly made by hand.
    The beauty of a homemade loaf that is proudly shared by the baker is one of the sweetest pleasures in the world!

  4. My all time favorite is multi-grain sour dough that my grocery store makes. Soft on the inside with a crunchie crust…yum!

  5. I usually make my own recipes. I use different flours… white, whole wheat, rye…. i’ll add flax meal, wheat germ and vital wheat gluten for a boost of nutrition and a variation in the textures. I love bread Yum!

  6. what I would love to be able to make is my grandmother’s Italian Sweet yeast egg Easter bread this coming Easter, Also a real good Italian bread dough would be good. Thanks so much. Sherry

  7. about 30 years ago when I was a kid going to the swap meet with my Mom, there was a place that sold bread that was so crusty & flakey on the outside & very soft on the inside. I didn’t know what it was called but I guess it was a french bread baguette. I would eat it all walking around the swap meet. They had candy, ice cream… but I loved the bread. Say “swap meet” & that’s my strongest memory

  8. I’m a fan of sourdough bread. I love the tang of the natural yeasts and love the fact that it is truly of this region–Oregon!

  9. My favorite is the baguette my husband bakes: wheat + spelt + bread flour. The best! And I would love to win this book to offer him. Thanks for this great giveaway.

    Wow …. that’s hard – JUST ONE favorite? Okay, if it must be ONE, then I’ll go with organic sprouted whole grain (It’s my healthy indulgence)!
