These warm, buttery rolls only take a little hands-on prep (the yeast does all the work), kids love to help shape them, and they fill the house with a delicious aroma. Even better, the same dough can be used for Cinnamon-Nut Buns.

Chocolate Cinnamon-Swirl Bread

Rating: 5 stars

End brunch on a sweet note by slicing into a loaf of this rich, babka-inspired swirl bread. Enriching the yeasted dough with eggs and milk produces a super tender crumb once baked, but not before becoming the canvas for a cinnamon-spiked chocolate filling. To make sure the filling is infused into every pillowy bite, the dough is braided together before being placed in the loaf pan to proof and then bake.

Pull-Apart Cheesy Pesto Bread

Think of this four-ingredient side as super-deluxe garlic bread. It's a fun way for the whole family to dig into some nutty pesto swirled together with gooey mozzarella cheese.

Sourdough Banana Bread

When you bake sourdough bread using a homemade starter, you'll eventually end up with so much of it that you'll need to discard some to keep the amount manageable.  You can compost the discard, or use it up in a recipe like this banana bread. You won't notice much difference in flavor; what you will notice is a slightly denser texture and an almost savory flavor from the use of olive oil, plus delicate sweetness from maple syrup.

Sourdough Starter

Rating: 2.47 stars

A starter, which is a mix of active wild yeasts and bacteria, is the key to leavening all kinds of sourdough-based delicacies. This recipe, adapted from Artisan Bryan, calls for a combination of flours; the rye flour helps speed up the process. Once the starter is established, you can continue to feed with a mix, or transition to entirely white flour. Note that you don't add any yeast yourself; instead, you allow the wild yeast present in the flour to develop over time.
