This is the quintessential egg bread of the Sabbath but done a bit differently. The best part is the topping and sesame seed crust so why not coat the entire bread with sesame seeds, instead of just on top? This recipe makes a velvety-stranded challah. It is a golden hued bread that features that slight ‘stretch’ or resistance to it  when take that first bite – all nicely contrasted with a tender crust. The total extreme, sesame outwear makes this challah unique looking and totally sumptuous to snack on but the secret inside (see the recipe) is what makes it totally sing sesame’s siren song. This is a golden, egg bread that is good 24/7 in any household. I would also carry on about how it makes great toast and French toast and sandwiches but there are no leftovers so why pretend….?


If you can find Fermipan or Saf  instant yeast, those would be the best choices for this recipe. Otherwise Red Star or Fleischmanns is just fine. Use a dough hook of course, with your mixer for this recipe or a bread machine also is handy to prepare the dough. Challah is a most amenable dough. If your guests (or family) aren't fond of raisins, leave them out or use dried cranberries or chunks of diced apple. This is a feathery, sweet, beautiful challah that anyone can make.

This is a short cut version of the classic French chocolate bun. A rich sweet dough, hides a cache of chopped chocolate that melts with just a touch.
Great for dinner or lunches

Great for toasting, drizzled with butter, honey and cinnamon.

Bagels ! What else is so satisfying and fun? These use fresh yeast for that real bagel bakery scent but there is a back-up substitution of dry yeast. This is a dynamite, crusty, huge, bagel with a hefty overcoat of onions, poppy seeds, sesame seeds and a touch of coarse salt. You can also use some multi-grain flour instead of all white flour or add cinnamon and raisins (and leave out the toppings) for a cinnamon raisin bagel. Bagel dough needs to be slick and almost tough so add in as much flour as the dough can absorb. A bread machine is perfect for making batches of bagel dough.

Something to rise and shine for. Plump raisins, velvety white bread, traces of cinnamon. A small loaf but satisfying.

The ultimate bread and butter bread - baked up in a springform pan for an exceptional shaped loaf. Perfect for sandwiches, mufeletta or with strawberry preserves. A stunning, puffy bread with a bakery store aroma. Fresh yeast is best but instant yeast is fine. Serve this with a big green salad, boiled corn on the cob, picked eggs, and Picnic Basket Chicken or a mix of cold cuts or vegetarian spreads. This is a perfect bread as a Muffaletta Bread foundation.

Clabber is an old fashioned word for buttermilk and buttermilk is the dairy liquid of choice in traditional soda bread. This recipe makes a majestic, lean, mean tasty soda bread that is great with cheese or sliced cold corned beef. I love it with tea in the evenings.
