Format: Hardcover
IF you like to bake, and want the best tried,true,simple recipes then get this book even if it is old (1969) and perhaps not fashionable. Why?

I learned to bake bread with this book published in 1969. I then worked as a baker for a few years as a young woman, and while I could certainly make huge amounts of bread at work, for MY home, this is the book I used exclusively till a the book got lost during a move in 1991. After 20+ years of use it was falling apart, was stained and had a mouse eat the edges of the book one cold winter in the country, so you'd think I wanted to "lose" the book but I was heartbroken and searched and searched for a copy.

I finally found a used book around 2000. I have all the newest popular bread books (I collect them) and "the bibles" of bread baking, BUT I love my tried and true recipes from this Homemade Bread book by the Food Editors of Farm Journal and they are my standby for any holiday meals because they are just perfect comfort food like your grandma made for you. Nothing fancy. No special sponges and pre-ferments (other than a nice sour dough biscuit and pancake recipe). What I like also is the little hints about why you cut bread on it's side when warm, and why you roll your loaf to make a fine crumb, and why you do many other things that was common sense for our grandma's but perhaps not common to you.

This book does not have "artisan" type breads in it. These are just as suggested, good recipes that "farm" people use to feed their large family on a daily basis. There are crusty breads, and soft breads that your grandma made in a simple oven without specialty items. You don't need a brick stone or special pans.

I found a worn copy of this book when I was a teen.
I have been baking all kinds of breads from this book for over 40 years. When I found a clean copy on Amazon I could not wait get a new copy, This Homemade Bread Book makes Happy Memories as well as
Wonderful Breads. I am giving a copy to a very dear friend for Christmas.

I bought this little cookbook waaay back in the 70's,and not being a "natural bread baker",worried that I'd somehow mess up.These are the best-tasting breads and have not managed to ruin a single one.My sister's in-laws own a high-end restaurant and my Mom gave the owner the recipe for rye bread,which she made and served--a customer favorite. And she's German-Russian,with the natural touch for doughs.And the recipe for the whole wheat made with honey is worth the price alone.Love this little book!

I lost my copy of this cookbook, and decided "on a whim" to try to find @ Amazon.
Wala!!! It was there, ordered, received, in fairly great condition for the age of
the book. I was thrilled. Enjoying all those great recipes once again.

This book has some very delicious recipes. The brioche is spectacular. My sister makes a fantastic jalapena cheese bread with it and rolls to die for.

I purchased this book to replace one that I had had for many years. It is the book I go to most often for bread recipes and I have lots of books. The service was excellent, they had it processed and prepared to ship within an hour of my purchase. The book was in excellent shape, I am not sure that it was ever really used.

This book is a treasure of bread recipes. Little can be said adding to what the other reviews are. There is no "high fructose corn syrups", "corn syrups" or "preservatives" required to make good healthy homemade breads. This book is a wonderful collection of delicious and wholesome bread recipes that can be made at home, enjoying the process start to finish. Easy to read, and easy to follow directions make the baking fun and rewarding. If a person has the desire to experiment with baking breads then this book will be the one to begin with and to stay with for years to come.

By Penny on December 9, 2013

I purchased this cookbook at Miller's Farm in the Maryland area for $1.00. I've tried the: Rich Hot Rolls (p 30), Never-Fail Baking Powder Biscuits (p 101), Golden Corn Bread (p 136), and the Banana Bread (p 142). All four came out perfect! The roll recipe was the same that my mother taught me in the latter 50's. I compared this cookbook's biscuit recipe with other well known cookbooks and noticed this book calls for less shortening and/lard which made the biscuits evenly brown and flaky. Likewise with the cornbread. I love this cookbook and won't let no one touch it
