'Bread' on Serious Eats

Cauliflower Cake From 'Plenty More'

This savory cake from Yotam Ottolenghi's newest cookbook, Plenty More, is as beautiful as it is unusual: cauliflower florets are suspended in a golden cake with green flecks of basil and a load of parmesan cheese, with an orbit of onion rings on top and crunchy, aromatic seeds gilding the edges. And, as with most of Ottolenghi's out-of-the-box creations, it's just delicious. More

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Gingerbread

The recipe combines two classic fall quick breads: pumpkin and gingerbread. It grabs the ginger and molasses from a classic gingerbread and adds just enough pumpkin for moistness without adding too much pumpkin flavor. Think of it as a really spicy variation of your favorite pumpkin bread. More

Easy Pull-Apart Pepperoni Garlic Knots

These pull-apart garlic knots are baked in a cast iron skillet for a crisp, golden brown bottom. They are intensely flavored with pepperoni, red pepper flakes, garlic, and two types of cheeses, and have a moist, buttery crumb. It's the kind of recipe that your guests will demand you make time and time again because they're that damn good. Good thing they're easy as well. More

Soft Bread Salami Rolls

These soft rolls are great for sandwiches. They have a moist, tender crumb and thin, crisp exterior. Most of the time spent here is just letting the yeast do it's thing. These rolls are a great way to ease into bread baking, easily mixed in a standing mixer and shaped by hand. More

Roast Chicken With Asparagus Panzanella

Making panzanella— the classic Tuscan tomato-and-bread salad—without tomatoes is tricky, because you need all those juices to soften the stale bread. The trick is to find other ways to make the dish as flavor-packed and moist as possible. Here's our method with asparagus, cucumbers, and red onions, served alongside roast chicken. More

BLT French Toast

I love savory French toast. And when you combine salty, fried, eggy bread with bacon, tomatoes, and fresh, crunchy shredded romaine, you get a brunch that will set you straight no matter what you got yourself into the night before. More

Bhakri (Indian Unleavened Rice Bread)

Where there's a curry, there's usually a rice or roti preparation that's used to soak in or scoop up the flavorful sauce; in India's rice belt, bread made out of rice flour is common. Because it's unleavened, it can be made in just a matter of minutes—a few ingredients kneaded together, a little heat, and it's done. Bhakri, or rice bread, is rustic food at its best. More
