Absolutely the best, lightest, fluffiest white bread recipe you will ever find (from Julia Child, of course). Has a great crust, too. My tips: double the yeast, knead for every bit of the requested ten minutes, and double the second rise time. The results are glorious.
Traditional Irish Soda Bread - It's so easy and the best part is you don't have to wait for it to rise! I've tried several recipes for Irish Soda Bread, and this is by far my favorite. It bakes up into such a beautiful loaf that its hard to believe it isn't a yeast bread - you can have a gorgeous loaf of homemade bread on the table in about an hour, from start to finish.
