Grandma’s Cooking School: Homemade Bread & Sweet Rolls



This was originally posted on July 7, 2010 on Cooking for Seven. Because these lessons were such an important part of my life, I will be re-posting them here.
{Grandma’s Cooking School is my chronicles of the informal cooking lessons that my Grandma graciously decided to give us girls. Enjoy!}

I am at a loss for words to describe these delicious creations, so I’ll let the photos do (most of) the talking.

Grandma’s homemade bread. Light, flavorful, delicious.

I love Grandma’s flour/baking drawer.

And her cupboards.

Grandma showed us a different way to form loaves: folding!

Now, the cinnamon/sticky buns. Much butter is required.

  1. It looks like fun!
    I loved to bake together with my grandma. Before christmas she would visit us and we would bake. Unfortunately, she passed away two years ago and I miss her so much. We had to stop baking way before then as she was too sick.
    Do you have her recipes? And would you be willing to share them?
    My grandma didnt use recipes and I miss her breads and cakes so much.
    Regards!

    1. It was lots of fun! I'd love to share the recipes, but Grandma prefers that they stay in the family and I want to honor her wishes. :)
