Basic White Bread
I already told santa I want bigger one with enough power to run a MACH TRUCK.. (don't think I'm going to get it).. Oh well a girl can dream
This recipe makes 2 loaves. I make about 10 loaves a week. This is one of the simplest breads to make and super easy.
- 7 c
- all purpose flour
- 1 pkg
- active dry yeast
- 3 c
- warm water
- 1/4 c
- 1 tsp
stir and let set for 10 minutes, don't worry you dont have to be exact.. I've often started yaking across the fence and let it set for 1/2 hour.. of course I didn't tell my family , but nobody seemed to notice a difference...
(If you dont have a stand up mixer )
Just use a wooden spoon until mixed.. better yet pass it down to any grandie that happens to be standing in the kitchen at the time and run and check your email.. All righty now..lets move along
cover loosely for 1 hour or until doubled in size
This will create some steam action for the bread to rise and create a nice crusty botton and top..
