Bread is a great snack, breakfast item and could even make a meal if you pack it with sufficient ingredients. It is also easy to bake, and you don’t need a bread machine – although use of one would shorten the steps significantly.
There are many benefits to baking your own bread, the main ones include being able to customize the loaves, ensure the use of top-quality ingredients and the elimination of preservatives. Freshly baked bread also fills the kitchen with a lovely aroma.
Shared below are three bread recipes: the cotton-soft sweet potato bread uses local sweet potatoes (orange in colour); the eggless, fat-free nuts, seeds and fruit loaf is a healthy version that stores very well; and the savoury braided loaf topped with sausage meat, mozzarella cheese, rosemary and paprika is good for a meal.
