How To Make Homemade Bread: 12 Quick Bread Recipes

"I have been making fried cabbage for over 50 years. Actually my mother taught me the recipe over 60 years ago. I always use about 2 1/2 lb. of bacon when I make mine. I simply fry my bacon and then boil the cabbage. I don't use spices because the bacon is flavored by the bacon. I make this for church socials family meals (with only 5 family members when I make it we eat it for a week but no one complains.) That is all that it takes to make this hearty and filling dish"

Cooking Time22 min
- Dough Starter:
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 1/2 teaspoon dry active yeast
- 1 cup flour
- Ciabatta Dough:
- 2 cups plus 2 tablespoons warm water
- 1 teaspoon active dry yeast
- Dough starter
- 4 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
To Make the Dough Starter
Prepare the dough starter by dissolving the yeast in the water in a medium sized bowl. Stir in the flour, you will have a thick paste-like dough.
With a spoon, stir the dough about forty or fifty times. This will help to build the gluten in the dough. Cover and let sit for at least 8 hours or overnight.
After the dough starter has sat for the given time, it should have big buggles on the top of the dough.
To Make the Ciabatta Rolls
Prepare the Ciabatta dough by dissolving the yeast in the water in the bowl of a stand mixer.
Using a flexible pastry scraper or spatula, scrape the dough starter into the yeast water mixture. Break up the dough start into blobs of dough.
Add the flour and salt, and stir until you have a thick, wet dough. Rest for 10-15 minutes.
Attach a dough hook to the stand mixer, and start to mix and knead the dough for 15 minutes on medium speed.
Note: Keep a careful eye on the mixer so it does not start to move off the counter.
About midway through mixing, the dough will start to pull away from the sides of the bowl and climb around the dough hook.
If this does not happen, simply speed up your mixed a notch. You may also need to stop the mixer and scrape the dough from the dough hook.
After 15 minutes, the dough should be smooth and shiny. If not, simply mix for a few more minutes.
Remove the dough hook and scape any dough attached to the dough hook into the bowl.
Cover the bowl and let the dough rise in a warm spot for 2-3 hours, until the dough has tripled in volume.
Line two baking sheet pans with parchment paper.
Dust a work surface with a good amount of flour. Using a pastry scraper or a spatula, carefully scrape the dough onto the floured surface. Dust the top of the dough with a bit more flour.
Gentyl pat the dough into a rectangle. Using a pastry scraper, cut the dough into 12 rolls about the same size. (Roughly 4 inches square.)
Carefully life the rolls with the pastry scrape onto the baking sheets, leaving 2 inches between the rolls. Dimple the dough gently with your fingertips.
Uncovered, let the rolls rest in a warm spot for 30 minutes, until they have risen and have bubbles.
Baking the Rolls:
While the rolls ar resting, heat the oven to 475 degrees F.
Note: If you are using a baking stone, place it in the oven while the rolls are resting.
Place the rolls on the parchment onto the baking stone. If you are not using a baking stone, leave the rolls that are on the parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 20-22 minutes, until golden.
Place the rolls onto a wire cooling rack to completely cool.

I tried this and it was quite good! It's one of those breads that are soft on the inside and harder on the outside, but in a good way.

This bread was perfect! Crisp on the outside and soft and fluffy on the inside. Add some butter while it's still warm and it literally melts in your mouth!

Homemade bread is always delicious, but I really loved the texture of this recipe! It would be great for sandwiches, or for serving with some sort of dipping sauce.

This recipe was just perfect! So soft and chewy with that homemade taste. Would be perfect with some fresh herbed olive oil as a dipping sauce.
