Amazing simple home made delicious white bread. So a disclaimer here I have lots and lots of bread recipes especially white bread so please forgive me if I go crazy posting one every other day lol No seriously!!!
I make this weekly and have a nice soft tasty bread for the rest of the week. You can also use wheat or add raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon to make a delicious cinnamon raisin bread. I would also suggest halving the recipe for the first time.
All you need.
Add sugar, warm water and then yeast.
Add Flour in parts. I added about 2 cups at a time.
Mix till it balls up on the hook.
Let the dough rise in a warm spot covered with a damp towel for about 1 hour. Should look like this when done.
Beat dough down and knead well then cut in 2 and place in 2 9 or 10 inch pans. Let sit to rise some more about 30 minutes. The picture shows the dough ready to be tossed in the oven after rising about 35 – 40 minutes.
You can use an egg wash for brushing on top of the bread. An egg and a little milk.
Should bake and be done in 30 minutes. Excellent and delicious!
