12 Days of Breadmas: Recipe Round Up!


Hooray! Breadmas Success! I hope your freezer is full of breads, and your kitchen smells delicious! But if you missed any breads, or want a quick reference I’ve gathered all the recipes plus the prep post right here. So anytime you are needing 12 days of dough goodness you can jump straight to where you need to go.

Prepping for 12 Days of YUM

To get you started on your 12 days of bread making fun, I’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of all the ingredients you’ll need to participate in all the recipes. As well as a list of all the tools that I think are helpful for these breads.

Day 1: Jalapeno Cheddar Cornbread

A little sweet, very savoury, and super moist and crumbly. Cornbread is one of the ultimate comfort foods. It reminds me of summer, and BBQ. But in the cold months it’s perfect along side chili and stew. Make sure you don’t skimp on the butter!

Day 2: Cinnamon Raisin Bread

A classic bread that really should be on every list of bread recipes. This one leaves my house smelling awesome for days. Who needs potpourri when you’ve got tasty cinnamon raisin bread??

Day 3: Focaccia with Herbs de Provence

This is a fun bread. It feels fancy, but is super easy. Its a forgiving and stretchy dough and becomes a fluffy and scrumptious flat bread. Use it as a pizza base or just dunked in oil. When I make this one, my bread fiend hubby makes sure it doesn’t last longer than a day or two.


Day 4: English Muffins

Homemade Egg McMuffins? Eggs Benedict? Classy breakfast with butter and Jam? English muffins have you covered. And they’re a great bread for small kitchens since you just fry them, there’s no need to heat up the whole room with the oven.

Day 5: Walnut Cranberry Bread

This is another bread that leaves your house smelling divine. Nutty, and hearty with bursts of tart sweetness. And bonus, it’s a No-Knead bread. One bowl to mix, 5 minutes of work, then you throw it in the oven and you’re done.


Day 6: Gluten Free Italian Bread

Our guest post of the series! This recipe belongs to the fabulous Kim over at LetThemEatGFCake.com. Her recipe saved me many times when I needed a simple GF bread. And her bread flour is the only one I use now for my GF breads. It’s basically Perfect.

Day 7: Irish Soda Bread

A little twist on the classic soda bread, but so damn good. It’s a mix between bread and a scone. Full of butter and currants, it makes lovely morning toast. Or a perfect accompaniment to an afternoon tea (because I know how classy you are).

Day 8: Round Rye Bread

I love rye bread. It took a long time to develop this recipe, but it was worth it. Reminiscent of Swedish Limpa bread, with hints of orange, and lots of caraway, it’s one of my favourites. Usually Mike is the bread fiend in our house, but for this one, it’s me.


Day 9: Pesto Pull-Apart Bread

I know there’s not a whole lot of food sharing happening these days, but you still deserve to have some fun appetizers. I love dipping breads in stuff, and this one is perfect for dipping. So make it just for you, or for whoever you’re quarantined with, and know that gathering will be allowed again soon.


Day 10: Brown Butter Beer Bread

I love alliteration, and I love this bread. Originally I was going for a Harry Potter thing, but it quickly turned into it’s own thing. Brown butter is the key to this cake like beer breads awesome flavour. And if you make extra then you’ll have some leftover for anything else that needs some oompf.


Day 11: Oat & Honey Bread

A simple but beautiful loaf. It’s light and fluffy, and perfect for French toast or croutons. As well as just your normal mornings. The oats lend a little nuttiness, and the honey gives a touch of sweetness. *Chefs Kiss*

Day 12: Potato Sourdough

And finally, the sourdough of the Breadmas collection. This one is also one of my favourites on the list. It’s very rustic, and just so full of flavour. I like to break apart the roasted potatoes with my hands so that the chunks are in all sizes. It gives the bread the best texture.

Thanks for joining in on the Breadmas fun! I can’t wait to do it again next year! If you bake any of the breads, take a photo, share it to Instagram and tag me, I’d love to see your baking!

Happy Breadmas!
