When used alone, the word “bread” usually refers to a loaf of bread made from white flour. Otherwise, there will be a descriptive word added to it, such as “wheat bread,” “potato bread,” “corn bread,” etc.

Of course, in more general terms, “bread” is defined as a staple food made from flour or meal mixed with other dry and liquid ingredients, usually combined with a leavening agent, and kneaded, shaped into loaves, and baked; which would include biscuits, rolls, muffins, waffles, and so on.

For our purposes, I’ll include recipes for preparing dishes made from bread that has already been prepared, while the instructions for preparing the breads, biscuits, muffins, and rolls will be included in subpages.

Recipes Using Bread

Bread Pudding

  • 6 cups dry bread crumbs
  • 6 eggs
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 5½ cups milk, scalded
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1½ cups sugar
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • nutmeg, to taste
  • cinnamon, to taste

Soak the bread crumbs for 5 minutes in scalded milk which has been poured into a baking pan. While the bread is soaking, combine the sugar, salt, eggs, butter, and vanilla in a separate bowl, and mix. Pour this mixture over the soaked bread, and sprinkle nutmeg and cinnamon on top. Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes, or until firm.



Cinnamon Sugar Biscuits

  • 4 packages of biscuit mix
  • ½ pint whip cream
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1 tbsp. cinnamon

Mix the cinnamon and white sugar together, and set it aside. Cut the biscuits in quarters, rolling each piece in the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Layer biscuits in a greased biscuit pan. Be sure to use all 4 packages of biscuits. Mix the whip cream and the brown sugar together, pouring this mixture over the prepared biscuits in the pan. Bake at 350 F for about a half hour, or until golden brown.
