10 Easy Homemade Bread Recipes

If your new year’s resolutions include making more of your meals from scratch — perhaps even baking your own bread — you’ll save money, eat better, and most likely be serving your family more nutritious food, having controlled exactly what goes into it. Homemade bread is one of life’s greatest pleasures — and once you get the hang of it, not such a big deal to pull off on a regular basis. Here are ten recipes, from utterly simple to a little more complex, that will help turn your kitchen into a bread bakery.

  • Garlic Cheese Batter Bread 8 of 10
    This simple loaf is like a cross between quick bread and yeast bread — the batter is wet and easily stirred together, but it's then leavened with yeast. A cinch to mix and bake to serve with soup, stew or chili — and leftovers make delicious toast.
