I blogged a while ago about how I wanted to do more bread baking on a regular basis around here. It was going well, but I still wasn’t 100% satisfied with any of the bread recipes I tried. I tried lots of different ones since I enjoy giving new recipes a whirl. What I found was that almost all bread recipes make great toast, but I was missing a good sandwich bread. I needed the bread a bit denser. And a bread that wouldn’t totally dry out by the time we were at the last slice of the last loaf.
Well…I think I found one!
Here is my mixing bowl next to the laptop on the kitchen table.
Dough is now ready to knead.
Fresh bread is so wonderfully good, I can’t encourage you enough to give it a try. The only equipment I needed to make this recipe was a big bowl, a wooden spoon, and loaf pans. And TIME. That is the hardest thing about bread. You need about a 1/2 day to make it. You are not working that entire time, but you need to be around to move it along to the next step.
I really hope you give homemade bread a try. It blows store bought away!!
