San Diego, California (NAPSI) - You can express your warm feelings for anyone you care about with something fresh and wonderful you baked yourself.

Great baking can be easier and more fun when you start with no-knead bread. In fact, Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade makes fresh, homemade bread in less than an hour, which can be great for last-minute recipes and when you want to create a thoughtful (end edible!) gift. Here are two delicious ideas to try, using the basic mix as a starter:

Cherry Lime Coffee Cake

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Rise Time: 25 minutes
Bake Time: 30 to 35 minutes
Yields: 8 to 9 servings


  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 package Fleischmann’s Simply Homemade Country White No Knead Bread Mix
  • ⅓ cup cherry preserves
  • Freshly grated peel from 1Êlime
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 package (5 ounces) dried cherries (¾ cup)
  • Lime Glaze:
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • ⅓ cup powdered sugar

Pour milk into a large microwave-safe bowl. Microwave until milk is warm (105° to 115°). Sprinkle contents of yeast and sugar packets over milk and stir to combine. Let mixture sit for 3 minutes. Stir in cherry preserves, lime peel, 1 teaspoon vanilla, dried cherries and bread mix. Place dough in a greased 8-inch round OR 8x8-inch square pan. Cover and let rise in a warm, draft-free place for 25 minutes. Bake in a preheated 375ºF oven for 30 to 35 minutes, until golden brown. Combine glaze ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Remove cake from oven and let cool in pan 5 minutes. Brush top with lime glaze. Cool completely.
