Home made Breads - Quick and Yeast

This is a trying time for many in this country and worldwide as well.    We're not able to buy the bread we like in the stores, because there simply isn't any to be found. 

I've baked bread for years, mostly because I enjoy hot, fresh bread slathered with butter, and for myself, I don't eat store bought bread often.
I will indulge myself by buying Hoagie Rolls, but other than that, I really do prefer home made bread.  I like the taste, I like the texture and I like knowing what is in them.

I thought I'd share some links to some of my favorite breads that I do make from time to time.  

Top of the list is my No-Knead Bread.  This takes a little time, mostly resting the dough, either overnight or for several hours during the day.  Bake it in a Dutch Oven, and you end up with a lovely crusty bread, that is full of flavor.  I love making it and bringing it with me to gatherings. 

You can use it as a base for Blooming Onion Bread.   Just in case, you don't eat the whole loaf at once, or you made an extra loaf just for this.  I used the No-Knead bread as a base. Blooming Onion Bread

You can also bake a sourdough based bread, and make it into a Foccacia , like this Sourdough Foccacia I made last year.  You can however use the Sourdough starter to bake bread as well. Just sayin...Sourdough Focaccia

But you may not have any yeast available, or some inconsiderate person took all the yeast at the store, however, you can still make a quick bread to accompany your meal. 
Personally I love Scones and Irish Soda Bread Irish Soda Breadand will happily eat them all day long.   I do play with my food as well. and have come up with a few variations on Scones.  These Ploughman's Scones make for a hearty lunch or dinner. And best of all, you can use up those bits and pieces of ham, cheese, apples, chutney to fill them.  I made some Lavender and Lemon Scones awhile back, Lavender and Lemon Sconesand they were perfect to eat alongside a lovely cup of tea. 

Or if you just want plain Scones, try out my Everyday Tea Time Scones.  Scones
You can use so many different seasonings or flavors with Scones.  Just make them to your taste.  

I'll share a few more recipes in the next day or so.

We're all in this together, and we will make it through.
