Baking bread is satisfying and delicious. You get to choose the ingredients that go into your bread recipe (no high-fructose corn syrup here!). But maybe even better, your home fills with a wonderful aroma of freshly baked bread. There are endless reasons to bake bread—for instance, baking a loaf of banana bread is a great way to get through those bananas that went past their prime while you weren’t looking. Try a new cornbread recipe to go with your award-winning chili. Or bake one of our bread pudding recipes and use up any stale bread you have hanging around your kitchen. You may not think you have a lot of time to bake a loaf of bread, but some of our quick bread recipes are ready in about an hour. So start baking!
