Doesn't get much better, or much easier than this. A classic that borders on being a coffeecake. Slice it nice and thick for toasting. Instant potato flakes make this bread extra moist. (Try this with any white bread recipe). You can use either a bread machine or traditional approach to this wonderful bread.

Just sweet enough and just buttery enough to deliver a lovely bouquet of taste and texture.

This is the quintessential, traditional challah: feathery, moist, light, golden - almost velvety but with that grew 'chew' factor that you want in any bread. A great starter recipe and the one I come back to over and over again.

 Most authentic Irish soda breads are whole wheat but combinations of half white and half whole wheat or white whole-wheat make for a fine standing loaf. As with anything else, a larger proportion of white flour will give an airier and higher loaf. All wholewheat will give you a more rustic, nutty loaf. Both eggs and caraway seeds are optional. I alternate on including the caraway seeds but often omit the eggs. You will use more of the buttermilk if you omit the eggs. I like this with a wedge of sharp cheddar or imported Cheshire or Lancastershire cheese - and a couple of pickled onions for a makeshift ploughman's platter. I made miniatures of this recipe for my sister-in-law Sheila Moore's shower a few years ago. Each guest got their own brown-paper and cord, and green ribboned package of still-warm soda bread.....and the marriage that followed is going strong. Is it the special union or the soda bread? Baking is....magic.

These cornsticks are best-eaten-when hot and dripping with melted butter. You can also make these as small muffins or in a cast iron skillet from The Lodge, who makes the nifty cast iron cornstick pans. Did you know that anything made in cast iron dramatically increases your iron intake?

A dense, dark spicy bread.

A bread for all seasons or whenever you want, whatever the occsaion. This is a Wonder-bread texture and loft but with great homemade taste and nutrition. A totally stand-up loaf – it keeps fresh for days, is perfect for grilled cheese or French toast or folding over a thick smudge of peanut butter and grape jam (not jelly) or homemade raspberry preserves. This bread is so simple and our own testers still give it raves – it is the bread they bake by default when they are not testing a new one!

Great for toasting, drizzled with butter, honey and cinnamon. This makes a rustic English muffin taste in a nice slicing loaf. The cranberries makes this divine and different. Use two large coffee cans to bake round loaves. I used a large loaf pan (12 by 5 inches). Two 9 by 5 inch pans will work as well. Another great bread for a breakfast sandwich.

A vibrant sandwich featuring a rustic black rye roll as the foundation to buttery Boston lettuce, cranberry salsa, feta cheese and sliveres of sweet pickle. This vegetarian sandwich touches all the right notes - it makes your mouth tingle.

Similar to a classic buttery brioche or a Sally Lunn. This slightly sweet loaf is wonderful fresh, or toasted with butter and honey. It's a perfect side bread.
