I’ve been in the baking mood lately. I decided not to buy commercial bread or bakery department bread at the grocery store for now. This helps me to stay focused on bread baking for proper usage and not bread baking for the sake of having something to do. If I’ve got too much bread in the house, I’ll just keep eating it and wind up gaining weight!!! The King Arthur Flour website has been a good source for tested bread recipes. I’ve put my faith in their baker/testers. So far, I haven’t had any disasters!
Shown below is one of the recipes I made yesterday, White Sandwich Bread. This bread has a great sweet taste and is the perfect size for a sensible lunch sandwich. I don’t buy white bread in the grocery store. However, this bread, with no preservatives, is a loaf that has some substance. It’s definitely not one of those white bread loaves that has such a spongy, wimpy crumb. The only good that came out of that bread (and you know which brand I’m talking about!) is the bread ball you could chew on if you removed the crust and balled up a slice in your hands!
