Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day Cookbook {giveaway}

Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day
We know that more than one of you mentioned baking bread at home as a New Year’s Resolution, so to help you with that, we’re giving away a copy of Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day again…

We’ve given away a copy of Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day before. The cookbook is the happy, healthy follow-up to the best-selling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. You know. That book that basically revolutionized bread baking because it made it possible to bake bread at home in, no joke, five minutes a day? And was all over food bloggers’ kitchens and thus, TasteSpotting when the book came out?!

In this follow-up cookbook, nothing good is taken away to make their breads healthy. Rather, Jeff Hertzberg and Zoe Francis (a blogger who contributes to TasteSpotting!) add things like whole grains and other healthy ingredients.

And yes, in case you didn’t know, doughnuts are healthy! There is a recipe for Indian-Spiced Doughnuts in the book.

To Enter This Giveaway:

  1. Leave a comment on this post with your favorite type of bread. Don’t worry if you don’t like bread or can’t eat bread. This is a random drawing so it doesn’t matter what you say. Just make something up. Us? We love all of the different kinds of Indian flatbreads (and there’s a recipe for a baked paratha in the book!)
  2. Make sure to enter your email address in the box provided so we can contact you
  3. Share this giveaway post with your friends on facebook and twitter! (not required, but we’d love the help!)

You have until Friday January 13, 2011 at 5 PM PST to comment. Everyone is welcome to comment to enter, but we can only ship this stuff in the U.S. (So if you’re outside the US and win, you just need to provide us with a US mailing address to send!)

Good luck!

Make sure to enter the other giveaways that are currently in progress: the Clean Start cookbook (until 5 pm PST today), and Ancient Grains for Modern Meals cookbook (until 5 PM PST Friday).

But in all honestly, there aren’t really any breads I wouldn’t eat.
Fresh flour tortillas are pretty amazing too. And salt rising bread from my childhood, toasted and spread with butter and mashed avocados. And sourdough from S.F.

Man, that’s a hard one. I love that honey black bread they serve at outback, but I also love a fresh crusty baguette, and marble rye is to die for…this is too hard for a carboholic like me.

Sara January 11, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Marbled rye. Yumm!

Allison January 11, 2012 at 1:22 pm

I love some fresh-from-the-oven homemade white bread made with honey. Even better if there’s a swirl of cinnamon inside!

I love semolina bread, round potato and rosemary sourdough, sweet bread with nuts and Turkish delight. Now, I can’t eat any of them, but is a pleasure to make them for the family. I would love to know how to make barley and buckwheat bread for gluten and sugar free diet.

DianaH January 12, 2012 at 6:29 am

Ethiopian injera

jean January 12, 2012 at 6:29 am

I love all breads. But I’d have to say I love it when it’s got raisons, nuts and multi grain. Thanks so much for opening a whole new world to me with your 5 minute a day methods.

Susan January 12, 2012 at 8:52 am

Ciabatta – my favorite

Martín Bernal January 12, 2012 at 8:57 am

Pan de jamón. It’s a special bread stuffed with smoked ham, green olives stuffed with red bell pepper, raisins and bacon; glazed with an egg and dark sugar on top. It’s the bread we traditionally eat in christmas in Venezuela. I feel like december can’t come soon enough to eat this again!

Woodie Woods January 12, 2012 at 9:11 am

I grind wheat berries for flour so any bread that comes out of the oven is my fav; crusty artisan bread.

Grandma55 January 12, 2012 at 9:16 am

My husband just built a wood burning oven in our backyard so we are really getting into artisan breads.

Beth R January 12, 2012 at 9:17 am

I love a coarse multi-grain bread.

lace January 12, 2012 at 9:26 am

There’s hardly a bread I don’t like; Challah, Pita, French, Sour Dough are all amazing.

Monika January 12, 2012 at 9:35 am

The brioche (made into cinnamon rolls) is to die for! Also, the whole wheat sandwich bread is incredible.

Cherie Bouma January 12, 2012 at 9:42 am

Brioche! We have made this dough and then made several different things with it including the almond creme and raspberry recipe . When friends try it, the comment we hear most is, “this is to die for!”

Tamara January 12, 2012 at 9:49 am

Currant bread !

Andrea Lakeland January 12, 2012 at 9:50 am

I make roti fairly regularly, but I’d love to branch out and learn more :-)

Fresh baked sourdough, lots of butter. Yum!

Beth January 12, 2012 at 10:43 am

Sourdough bread is my all time favorite, but right now I’m going through a strong molasses scented oatmeal bread phase. So hearty and satisfying.

Laurie Jesch-Kulseth @ Relishing It January 12, 2012 at 10:44 am

I’ve been wanting a copy of this cookbook for a long time — fingers crossed! ;). I love sourdough — it’s one of my favorites, though I tend to enjoy any type of bread.

Jaime January 12, 2012 at 10:45 am

Brioche=heaven :)

Tatyanna Wilkinson January 12, 2012 at 10:55 am

I have loved to bake since I was a young girl, but yeast breads have always eluded me. This book would help me learn.

Vaishali January 12, 2012 at 11:16 am

Focaccia bread! :)

Natalie J Vandenberghe January 12, 2012 at 12:07 pm

Talk about power of suggestion–I love Indian flatbreads, also! There are so many breads I enjoy. Great Harvest makes a loaf called Dakota bread that our family loves. I love to make cracked wheat bread and I love homemade white bread (so bad, I know). The only breads I don’t eat are sourdough (I know, weird) and breads that have caraway seeds, fennel, or anise (so weird, especially because I love licorice!). I also prefer my cinnamon swirl breads without raisins!
Thanks for the giveaway.

Sarah January 12, 2012 at 12:47 pm

Challah! I’ve never made it before, though, and would like to learn.

Kelly Dee January 12, 2012 at 12:49 pm

Lori Kennedy January 13, 2012 at 12:01 pm

I love this Roasted Red Pepper & Pesto Swirl Bread –

Aimee January 13, 2012 at 12:28 pm

for me, it has to be gluten free – something fresh made with a hot, crusty, toasted crust on the out side and a soft, light inside – fresh from the oven, with a small pat of butter

Bethany January 13, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Love all kinds of bread, but sourdough is probably my fave.

I made about 30 loaves of bread during the holidays and most of them I baked using the basic recipe with a wonderful Zoye Oil (soy base) topping with Kosher Salt. I also baked them in Heart shaped pans that I made. Adds a nice touch when the bread arrives in the shape of a heart. Thanks for the recipes.

Lisa Catania February 2, 2012 at 1:04 pm

I love 7 grain bread, but my current favorite is actually the European Peasant Bread from Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day made with my sourdough starter. A moist, open crumb with a thin crackly crust…all I can say is Y to the UMMMMM….great with cheese, awesome for sandwiches, delish warm with butter and a nice bowl of good soup. I’ve even been known to scarf down a slice or two plain. Try it some time…i’ts DA BOMB!
