Oklahoma's Best Breads

Each year Oklahoma's wheat producers and the Oklahoma Wheat Commission sponsor the Oklahoma "Best of Wheat" (formerly Wheatheart) Bread Baking Contest held at the Oklahoma State Fair. From this event's more than 100 entries from counties all across the state we have collected a great sampling of Oklahoma's Best Breads.

We hope you will use these recipes in your own kitchen as you savor the aroma and discover the fun of baking fresh bread. Additionally, on this page you will find Mark's Bread recipe, which is the dough used for the cinnamon rolls and bread that the Oklahoma Wheat Commission has become famous for.
Happy Baking!
