Bountiful Breads The smell of fresh bread baking calls back warm childhood memories. When you have the time, I feel it is so special to mix and knead your own dough. Sometimes I make an extra batch to keep in the freezer so we can enjoy fresh bread on a weeknight, or sticky buns on Saturday morning. I have included some of my favorite bread recipes ~ from a healthy grain bread to my grandmother’s delicious cinnamon buns. I still remember enjoying them at her house when I was a child. The muffins are great to make ahead and freeze for later. You never know when those muffins might come in handy.

BONNI’S INCREDIBLE FIVE GRAIN BREAD Makes 2 loaves This is such a delicious and healthy bread from my dear friend.
Sift and mix all dry ingredients into a large bowl, add the water or buttermilk. Stir until well incorporated. The batter will resemble muffin mix. Add more water if necessary. Do not over mix. Divide batter into 2 well greased loaf pans. Bake at 425° for 15 to 20
