I'm looking for some great bread recipes. I don't own a bread maker, cause I love to make it the old fashion way. I currently have recipes for Zucchine Bread and Sour Dough Bread, plus ones for buscuits. Thanks.

You could make Apple Bread the same way you make Zuchinni bread just by subsituting apples. My aunt did that and it came out wonderful. She shredded the apples to make it real moist and put thinly sliced apples on the top before baking to give it a little extra something.

Hi Alesha! I copied a couple different recipes for breads from my Busy People's Christmas cookbook. You can make these any time of the year and they are delicious! I hope you like them.

Italian Flat Bread

Mm! Mm! Mama-Mia! This savory bread is perfect with Italian-theme Christmas dinners. It got rave reviews at my dinner table.

1 1/2 cups baking mix, not the sweet baking mix

1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon fat-free sour cream

1/2 teaspoon Old Bay seasoning

1 tablespoon imitation butter-flavored sprinkles

1/2 tablespoon Italian seasoning blend

1 teaspoon garlic salt

2 teaspoons dried parsley

▪ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

▪ Coat an 11 x 15-inch baking sheet with nonfat cooking spray.

▪ In a medium bowl with a spatula stir together the baking mix, sour cream, Old Bay seasoning, butter-flavored sprinkles, and Italian seasoning until it makes a crumbly dough you can no longer stir.

▪ Spray your hands with nonfat cooking spray. Knead the dough into a ball.

▪ Flatten the ball into a rectangular shape, making it as thin as you are able. Lay the dough on the prepared baking sheet and press the dough out to about 1/4 inch thickness. You will use only about 2twi-thirds of the baking sheet. If needed, spray your hands with nonfat cooking spray occasionally so the dough will not stick to your hands.

▪ Poke holes about 1/2 inch apart all over the top of the dough.

▪ Sprinkle lightly with the garlic salt and dried parsley. To enhance the flavor of the parsley, rub the parsley between your hands to make it fine before sprinkling it on top of the dough.

▪ Bake for 7 to 9 minutes. Cut into 20 flat bread squares.

Note: You may want to remove your rings before making this recipe, because kneading dough can get quite messy.

Banana-Nut Bread

I don’t think I’ll eat high-fat banana bread made with processed white flour ever again. You’d never know I used so few nuts because the whole wheat adds an extra-nutty flavor and texture. Definitely, a healthy recipe you can enjoy completely guilt free.

1/2 cup cinnamon applesauce

1/2 cup liquid egg substitute or 4 egg whites, beaten

2 very ripe bananas, mashed

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups whole wheat sweet baking mix

3 tablespoons finely chopped walnuts

▪ Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

▪ Spray three mini-loaf pans with nonfat cooking spray.

▪ In a medium bowl with an electric mixer beat together the applesauce, egg substitute, banana, and vanilla until well blended.

▪ With a spatula stir in the baking mix until all of the ingredients are blended.

▪ Pour the batter into the prepared pans. Sprinkle the tops lightly with the nuts.

▪ Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out dry.
