Let me show you how to use the tangzhong method to make tangzhong bread, a super soft bread that stays that way for days and is quite possibly the most perfect sandwich bread ever

Another way to make bread that has great keeping properties is to make potato bread, so you might want to check that out as well. Bread That Keeps Really Well If you are a fan of soft, springy sandwich bread, I’m pretty sure you can’t beat the Tangzhong method. I am by no means an expert, but I’ve baked four loaves so far, I have had excellent luck keeping the bread out on the counter (in a zip top bag) for up to 5 days of softness! Five days, people.

This week’s recipe is brought to us by Australian Pears and it’s a beauty.

Today, we give you another recipe from the book, Yeasted Pumpkin Bread. Yeasted Pumpkin Bread Sephardi Jews traditionally eat foods made with pumpkin and squash on Rosh Hashanah, when they hold symbolic significance. Jewish traders also played a major role in spreading the New World gourd across the Mediterranean during the time of Columbus, and Sephardi cuisine continues to utilize pumpkin in many baked goods, jams, and other dishes today. This tender, gently spiced bread, called pan de calabaza, can be shaped in a spiral for Rosh Hashanah, baked in a loaf pan, or formed into rolls. But this recipe’s sunset-colored...

It is officially fall

I have mixed feelings about that. I love long warm summer days and all that they bring so I’m always a little sad to see summer pass by. But fall is so beautiful and this time of year I always get the urge to get in the kitchen and do some baking. I know lots of people are full on pumpkin spice this time of year, and I have nothing against pumpkin spice but if I had to pick my favorite of the fall spices it would be straight up cinnamon. It goes so well with so many things, in...
