Your Photos Here (December)

I love seeing my recipes being made all over the world.  I hope you’ll share where you are from and please send your photo to:


“Hi Jenny,  This year my family decided to have a traditional Czech style Christmas.  However, rather than making rye bread, I opted to use your recipe for Simple White Bread (with egg), to make Soft Rye Rolls.  I used half “bread flour” and half “medium rye flour.”  I also let the rolls rise an extra 10 mins.  To finish, I mixed a whole egg with 1 tablespoon of water as an egg wash to brush over the tops, then sprinkled the rolls with caraway seed.  Delicious  Soft and tender with the taste of rye.  I just can’t say enough about your Simple White Bread recipe.  Not only has it produced beautiful bread time after time, but my variations on the recipe have all turned out well.  Thanks again! ~ Bunny (in Chicago)”

~ They look great and thanks for sharing the details of your variation. ~ jenny


“Hi Jenny! ?  I made your CHRISTMAS WREATH BREAD and it came out FABULOUS!! ? I used one cup of fruit-cake mix instead of the raisins in the sweet bread. Let me tell you this sweet bread is wonderful, I can snack on it all day long….LOL!  I plan on making this fabulous bread again without the glaze, I like the idea of having it as toast in the morning. I’m also thinking this sweet bread will make a very tasty French toast. Thank you again for sharing your recipes with us Ms. Jenny! Happy Baking!  ??A very Merry Christmas to you and yours!!! ?”

~ Looks yummy. Thank you for the lovely photos and all the best for 2018. ~ jenny

“My first attempt at making your faster no knead bread!”

~ Well that’s a lot better than MY first attempt. Love the sesame seeds!” ~ jenny


“Dear Jenny, I’m having a wonderful time trying your recipes as the snow continues to pile up outside. No running to the corner store for bread, thanks to you.  My newest adventure, hot buttery BISCUITS.   I followed your recipe for “Buttermilk Biscuits” to a T, with only a couple small adjustments.  Rather than rolling the dough out once, I folded the dough into 3rds, rolling it out twice more, to help create layers (like they do for puff pastry).  I raised the oven heat to 475 for extra spring, and put these 3 inch biscuits into the oven without any glaze.  Only after baking did I brush them with melted butter.

Oh my, OINK! OINK!  Everyone was pigging out on your wonderful biscuits.    (Next time, instead of using buttermilk, I think I will use milk and add pickle juice to it  — then stuff the baked biscuits with ham as a traveling sandwich).  Thank you for another great recipe, Jenny; and the applause of my family.  ~ Bunny in Chicago”

~ You’re a creative baker. Thanks so much for sharing. ~ jenny


“Dear Jenny, I love it when leftovers and recipes do double duty; so I wanted to share. (I hope you don’t mind me sending you my variation). With a bit of leftover mashed potatoes, dried dill and dried minced onion, I turned your Simple White Bread (with egg) into one of those gourmet, sandwich breads.

First, I added 2 1/4 tsps. of dried dill to the dry ingredients in Step 1.  Then, I added 1 Tabl. of dried, minced onion to the milk in Step 2, letting the onions soak for a few mins, before warming the milk to the proper temperature in the microwave.  Then, just after Step 3, I added between 2/3 cup and 3/4 cup of microwave-warmed, leftover, mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter), to the dough and mixed it in well  before adding the final 1/4 cup of flour in step 4.

After baking, I brushed the loaf with melted butter and  let the bread completely cool before slicing. The wait was interminable, as I was pretty excited — never having made potato, onion or dill bread before.  It came out incredibly moist, tender and flavorful.  So delicious. The surface of the bread is not super smooth due to the minced onions, but worth adding them.  My loaf came out darker on top than your original Simple White Bread recipe , but brushing the top with butter makes it soft — just perfect for sandwiches.  (Perhaps I should have covered it with foil, earlier).   Thank you Jenny.  I wouldn’t have had the nerve to try this if your Simple White Bread (with egg) recipe wasn’t practically foolproof. ~ Bunny (in Chicago, IL)”

~ Your combination sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing the details for everyone. (Luv Chi-town!) ~ jenny

    Jenny, can you copy a bread made by the New York bakery in Frackville,Pennsylvania. Ate it growing up in Minersville,Pa, and it was like eating cake.They called it ” Miners Rye”. Absolutely wonderful and I need some now. Help if you can. Thank you .

    Question about your youtube video technique…

    Your baking videos are fabulous – informative, easy to follow, and fun!

    Thank you.

    I have a quick question for you that is related to a technique you are using with your youtube videos. Would you be willing to contact me via email? (I’m not a hacker – just another home baker who is helping a friend with his videos.)


    • Jenny

      I’m sorry but the person who shot my videos no longer works with me so I can’t help regarding technique.
