Baking bread is a magical experience. Yes, it takes a little time. But taking plain old flour, mixing it with some water and yeast (and maybe a few other things), and ending up with a soft, chewy loaf of real live bread is both surprising and empowering.
The recipes below feature bread of all sorts: yeasted breads such as Almost No-Knead Whole-Wheat Bread, chemically leavened breads such as Cinnamon-Raisin Swirl Bread, and bready projects that are totally worth the effort, like Pretzel Rolls. Learn how to knead and shape bread dough, and explore the power of yeast in a fun, hands-on science experiment.
