My Everyday Bread

Tammy Brownlow


I really enjoy baking - nothing smells like fresh homemade bread baking in the oven. I have worked on this recipe for a few years and finally have one that works the way I like it to.

I love the texture and flavor. I combine bread flour and white wheat flour. I also add more sugar than normal - it's not a "sweet" bread like Hawaiian Bread though.

It slices like a dream and is great for sandwiches or any other dish you would need it for.

My treat is the first slice warm, with butter....nothing beats that!
