White Lily Sweet Cake Biscuits

Serious Eats dbcurrie Post a comment

Most biscuits are meant to be savory, or at the least, neutral. These biscuits are sweet and they're meant for dessert. If the only strawberry shortcake you've eaten was made with sponge cake, you should try it with biscuits. More

Angel Biscuits

Biscuits with yeast? You know I had to try these! The short blurb about these biscuits in Southern Biscuits says that they're also called Bride's Biscuits because they're foolproof. With both yeast and chemical leavening, it's hard to imagine what you could do to these biscuits to cause them not to rise. More

Busty Yogurt Biscuits

[Photograph: Donna Currie] The first recipe I tried from Southern Biscuits by Nathalie Dupree and Cynthia Graubart was the Busty Yogurt Biscuits. They are similar to cream biscuits in that they don't use butter but are still flakey, rise high,... More

The Bread Bible's Seeded Dill Rye

Serious Eats dbcurrie Post a comment

As rye breads go, this one is fairly light and soft, but it still has good rye flavor and would make a great sandwich bread. More

The Bread Bible's Sesame White Bread

Serious Eats dbcurrie Post a comment

I love an unassuming white bread. It's great for sandwiches, for toast, for croutons, and a well-done loaf of white has plenty of flavor. When I saw this recipe for a sesame-covered white bread where the dough was kneaded in the food processor, I had to give it a try. More

Fast Breads' Buttery Rowies

Serious Eats dbcurrie 1 comment

I'd never heard of rowies until I saw this recipe in Fast Breads, but as soon as I saw the recipe, I knew I had to try it. The concept is something like a croissant, but with fever folds, and with the dough cut so the butter leaks out during cooking. More

King Arthur Flour's Dark and Dangerous Cinnamon Buns

Serious Eats dbcurrie 3 comments

[Photograph: Donna Currie] What Worked: While these wouldn't be considered healthy, if you're going to eat cinnamon buns, you might as well add whole wheat. Except for the color, you'd never know these were whole grain buns. What Didn't: For... More

Sauerkraut Rye

Serious Eats dbcurrie 2 comments

[Photograph: Donna Currie] What Worked: An incredibly tasty bread. What Didn't: A long list of ingredients might make some people think twice about making this. Pumpernickel flour might not be available at the grocery store. Suggested Tweaks: I love caraway,... More

Micro-Brewery Honey-Wheat Bread

Serious Eats dbcurrie Post a comment

This bread from King Arthur Flour's Whole Grain Baking book is soft, fluffy, and just a little bit sweet. The flavor will vary depending on the kind of beer you use, so choose wisely. I find that for most beer breads, a mild, light beer works much better than a stronger beer that can leave behind a bitter after-taste. More

Granola Bread

Serious Eats dbcurrie 1 comment

[Photograph: Donna Currie] What Worked: Simple recipe where everything is combined at once. Great use of some leftover granola that needed a home. Perfect recipe for improvising by adding nuts, seeds, dried fruit, to suit your taste. What Didn't: Hydration... More

The Italian Baker's Pane di Como

Serious Eats dbcurrie 8 comments

This bread from The Italian Baker uses what it calls a "starter" but it's not a sourdough starter. It's a pre-ferment using commercial yeast. The long pre-ferment adds a lot of flavor and the method of rising in a basket adds texture to the surface of the bread. More

The Italian Baker's Semelle Rolls

Serious Eats dbcurrie 14 comments

Semelle are little rolls from Florence where the dough is used to make several different buns including some that require special cutters. This recipe from The Italian Baker is astonishingly easy (you don't need the special cutters) and the results are pretty darned good. More
