White Bread

I’ve been trying to go grocery every two weeks. This works out fine for everything except bread. As we approach the last few days before shopping again whatever bread we have is dry and ready to mold. Today I decided to find a recipe for white bread on Pinterest. This is the one I made.

I narrowed down the possible recipes by looking for things I knew I wanted. First I wanted a white bread since that is the flour I had. I used King Arthur bread flour. Next I wanted it to have milk and fat. Both of these extend the life of the loaf. This recipe included the option of using coconut oil or butter. I went with butter since it was what I had.

The instructions included brushing the loaves before the second rise with melted butter. I don’t normally do this but thought I’d give it a try. It made for a dark softer crust. I like it.

Overall the bread was easy to mix up in my Kitchenaid mixer. I followed the instructions in the Kitchenaid cookbook to put the ingredients in the mixer, not the recipe instructions. The loaves baked 30 minutes at 350f. I think 2-3 more minutes wouldn’t have hurt.

We tried to let the bread cool before cutting into the first loaf. We made it about 10 minutes. Let’s face it, warm bread fresh from the oven is irresistible. Each slice was slathered with butter and it was delicious. I’ve tucked this recipe away to use again in the future. I recommend you give it a try if you’re into white bread.

    Such beautiful loaves! My last round was a disaster, I forgot maybe a cup of flour, but wasn’t sure, so didn’t knead enough in for the second rise, and now we get to eat ugly bread for a week!😆

  8. Looking good – honey as the sweetening also extends the life of bread – and being single, I put mine (sliced) in the freezer, and pull out as needed. No mold, not stale.

    I slice and put it in the freezer too. Take out the slices you need. No problem with mould/mold or going stale.

    Have you tried putting your bread in the freezer? 🙂 I usually buy several loves and freeze them. I take them out as needed. I’ve been doing that for years. My Mom always did it. Homemade bread is the best though!
