Oatmeal Cinnamon Swirl Bread

The bread has a light texture and tender crumb that is accentuated by the old-fashioned rolled oats and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour I added. To make this more of a breakfast bread, I sprinkled a layer of cinnamon sugar on the dough and rolled it up so that each toasted slice would have a delicious cinnamon spiral in the middle. The other great part about this bread recipe is that it makes two loaves at a time; one to eat and one to freeze for later.  Read More »

"Big Game" Calzones

When I think of Sunday’s big football game, I think of food. Not the game, the players or even the half-time show. For me, it’s all about the food. Last year I made Whole Wheat Pizza Bites that went over like gangbusters the day of the big game. So, this year I decided to do something along the same lines, but this time I turned the whole wheat pizza dough into mini calzones filled with ground beef, onions, mushrooms and cheese. These tasty hand pies can be dipped into warm pizza sauce or marinara or eaten plain – although I think it may be an unwritten rule that all foods related to watching the big game must be dipped.  Read More »


Caramel Apple Cinnamon Rolls

The dough starts off in the usual way with lots of butter, sugar and cinnamon (these are cinnamon rolls after all) and then incorporates some extra ingredients like lemon zest, nutmeg, buttermilk and Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour. Then sliced apples are slowly caramelized in more butter, sugar and cinnamon and are wrapped into the dough with even more cinnamon and sugar. Mouth watering yet? To take these rolls over the top, they’re frosted with a creamy, salted-caramel glaze that will make you weak in the knees after one taste. Altogether, these cinnamon rolls are reminiscent of caramel apples in a warm, gooey cinnamon roll form.  Read More »

Making your own crust is easy, too – trust me. Grab a bag of Hodgson Mill Whole Wheat Flour and Hodgson Mill Best for Bread Flour and come along with me. Read More »


Hot Cross Buns Cream Cheese Braid

We have a winner for the Hodgson Mill “Have A Grain Holiday” baking contest! Barbara at Barbarabakes.com wowed us with a beautiful and delicious Citrus Cranberry Cream Cheese Danish Braid that earned her first place in our food blogger contest. That’s the link to her winning entry along with detailed directions on how she made it all come together.Now that another holiday is upon us, and the seasons are a-changing, I wanted to pay homage to Barbara’s recipe, but tweak it just a little bit for springtime. I wanted to bring my favorite flavors from hot cross buns into the picture—warm spices against fresh citrus zest and golden raisins. I also toned down the sweetness just a tiny bit to reflect a hot cross bun (I left off the citrus sugar, since the finished product is sweet enough for me). I love her recipe, and I also wanted to try out a few other seasonal ideas; I think they’re both pretty terrific. Read More »


My Irish Granny’s Whole Grain Wheaten Bread

Despite being named Erin, I don’t actually have an Irish granny. But if I did, I would hope she would bake bread like this–slightly sweet and nutty with toasted Hodgson Mill Steel Cut Oats, with a crisp browned crust hiding a tender buttery biscuit crumb. (For any word nerds out there, ‘Wheaten’ is an old English word that means just what it says, and it’s the name of this type of loaf.) To me, this fun clover-shaped loaf is whole grain baking at its best—taste, texture, and looks (a triple threat!). And since it’s a soda bread, made with buttermilk and baking soda instead of yeast, it’s ready in just about an hour. It’s perfect for breakfast, toasted, with butter and jam, but it easily holds up next to a savory soup or stew. The smell of this, fresh from the oven, drew everyone in my house straight to the kitchen. . . I just love when that happens. Read More »
