The Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book is the classic bestselling cookbook devoted to baking light, healthful, delicious bread entirely from whole grains. This specially updated edition includes an entirely new chapter on making excellent whole-grain loaves in a bread machine. Now even the busiest among us can bake the delectable loaves for which Laurel's Kitchen is famous.

New research proves what we've known all along: Eating whole grains really is better for your health! Here, the switch from "white" is made fun and easy.

Like a good friend, the "Loaf for Learning" tutorial guides you step-by-step through the baking process. You'll make perfect loaves every time, right from the start.

Here you'll find recipes for everything--from chewy Flemish Desem Bread and mouthwatering Hot Cross Buns to tender Buttermilk Rolls, foolproof Pita Pockets, tangy Cheese Muffins, and luscious Banana Bread--all with clear explanations and helpful woodcut illustrations.

The brand-new chapter on bread machines teaches you to make light "electric" loaves from whole-grain flour. No matter what your schedule, you can come home to the wonderful smell of baking bread, fresh, hot, and ready to enjoy.

Interesting and informative, but dated. If you could only have one book on bread, this would probably be the one. There's something for everybody, and recipes for every kind of bread you can imagine, and some you probably can't. Even better, it's not just a bunch of recipes, there's discussion of process, ingredients, and equipment. The "dated" part is that the recipes are not given in weight, only volume.

I've read many books about breadmaking, but this is probably the best written. The authors set out to explain the process - all the steps to make a perfect loaf and, more to the point, a trouble shooting guide. I've been making brick-like bread for years - now I know what I've been doing wrong all along!
