Stay Home and Bake: A Recipe Resource!

I'm eating WAY more baked goods that ever before as it turns out that both my girl and I stress bake.

I don't think we are alone and I'd love to share a few recipes with you that we are using that require yeast. I know yeast is in short supply in some places, but I was able to get 2 lbs from our local restaurant food supplier!

(While supplies last these are shipping with all kit orders)

We've also been baking a lot with sourdough, but I feel like those recipes should be in a separate post to keep things from getting too confusing! That will be for next week when we run out of yeast cause I share it all with you!

So, share your favorite yeasted recipes in the comments, please? I'm sure we are going to need inspiration soon, I will add yours to the list and we can create a resource of tried and true recipes together!!!


  1. Sally Lunn for a bread making machine: simple, sweet, unsophisticated, great for toast
    1/3 C softened butter
    2 eggs plus enough water to equal 1 1/3 C
    2 T sugar (I use brown sugar)
    1 1/2 t salt
    4 C flour (I use all-purpose)
    1 packet rapid rise yeast
    Add all ingredients to pan in the order listed. Set breadmaker to dough setting. Transfer to floured surface when dough is complete and gently shape into two loaves or rolls or whatever. Allow to rise in a warm spot for another 30 to 60 minutes. Brush with egg wash and bake for 20 to 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

    1. Yum! I bet I could do this in my stand mixer too!!! I love me some sweet and unsophisticated carbs!!! xo

      2 tablespoons active dry yeast instant works, too
      1/2 cup warm water
      1/2 cup butter softened
      1/4 cup honey
      3 eggs
      1 cup lukewarm buttermilk or milk
      4½ to 5 cups whole wheat flour
      1 ½ teaspoons salt
      Dissolve the yeast in the 1/2 cup warm water in a glass measure. Set aside.
      Cream the butter and honey in the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attachment. Add the eggs and mix, scraping the sides. Add the warmed milk along with the yeast mixture.
      Add 4½ cups of flour and the salt, mixing until combined. Change to dough hook and knead for 2-3 minutes only, just until no longer tacky, adding a tablespoon or two of flour at a time, if needed. (Do not add too much.)
      Let sit in bowl, covered, to rise for one hour. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead a couple of times, then let rest 3 minutes.
      Divide into 24 equal pieces, shaping each into a ball and placing in a buttered 13x9-inch baking dish with the pieces touching.
      Let rise, covered for 1 hour.
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
      Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.
      *Make Ahead:
      You can make these up to a month in advance, let the cool in the pan, remove them as one piece, separate into 2 sections of 12 rolls and place each section of rolls into a gallon sized freezer baggie.
      Freeze until needed.
      When ready to serve, take them out in the morning to thaw, then wrap the 12-roll section in tin foil and heat in a 300-350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes or until warm.

  3. Is the BEST fast foccacia EVERrrrr

  4. thank you for the yeast with my beadkerloop kit!!!

  5. Hi Laura! Is the packet of yeast that was included with your kit that I bought from Etsy the right kind for the Apple Bread recipe that you link to here?

  6. Being a wee bit Scottish and Irish on both sides of my family, not to mention my husband's sides too. I tend to look for really good Irish soda bread recipes. My family loves I bake fresh bread. But a Scottish favorite that the beg me to make is Bannocks. There is a lovely one here.
    But I have to say my go to is from Theresa Carle-Sanders' Outlander Kitchen. As she has shared this one on Face book before, I will share it with you. Easy to make and so yummy warm with butter or your favorite jam. Enjoy!
    Bannocks at Castle Leoch
    :This modern version of a castle staple is lighter and flakier than the dense pucks the Clan MacKenzie would have proclaimed delicious. Thanks be to wheat and baking powder.
