I love making this bread,because it's so easy to make,



  1. Yum! Anything with chocolate in it HAS to be good! I've enjoyed baking French bread in the past. I should try it again.

  2. Everything you make looks so wonderful, Regina. And your gardens are so beautiful. You are one talented homemaker!

  3. thank you for sharing me your recipes. So interesting. I have no idea about baking. I hope you will share me a lot of recipes forward.
    Thank you

  4. Oh yummy !!!! That looks so very good. I haven't eaten Sugar in nearly two months ; )
    That would certainly be a reason to get a Sugar overdose ; )
    Those Amerikaner look great, what are they for kind of pastry ??
    Have a great day.

  5. Amerikaner - now that has me intrigued. What is that, a cookie with icing? I can't quite tell. But I can tell you're a good baker!

  6. Your bread and muffins look delicious! I love easy bread recipes too.

  7. Looks delicious! Haven't baked bread in a while (don't do much in the summer), but the son asked for some yesterday, so I think it's time. :)

  8. It all looks wonderful! Thanks for the bread recipe which I will try today. :-)
    Love your header image.

  9. Hello, just wanted to stop by and say thank you for visiting my blog recently and for your lovely comment. I hope to see you again soon and I am looking forward to reading your adventures now I am following you. Thanks again and hope to see you soon. Amy

  10. Ich liebe selbstgebackene Amerikaner! Nur sind unsere immer halb weiss und halb schwarz. ;-)

  11. Ohh... your bread is wonderful. Fall is definitely here in my area. It's time to make some soup and bread. It's raining and cool and I am ready for fall.

  12. Your bread looks wonderful! I have never had great success with French bread, but I will keep trying.

  13. Hello Regina

    I have your french bread in my oven, baking now. I will blog about how it goes. I think I let it rise for too long, then it went a bit flat. We will see! It will still taste good!

    Cheers, Joolz xx
