Rich White Bread
- 1 1/2 c
- 1 1/2 Tbsp
- brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp
- white sugar
- 2 Tbsp
- 2 tsp
- 3 Tbsp
- butter or oil or lard or shortening or bacon grease or a combination
- eggs, large or jumbo room temp beaten
- 5 1/2-6 c
- flour, all purpose is fine
Cool to 110 degrees, stir in yeast. Allow to set for 10 minutes until foamy. Add eggs, stir. 3 medium eggs is fine.
Remove from bowl, shape into a ball and divide in half.
Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes until bread sounds hallow. We like the softer crust the lower temp provides. The richness of this dough also leads me to a lower temp choice. Each oven it different, be sure to check to see if it is done, pull loaf out of pan to see if it is golden brown. Feel free to spread a little butter on the top when you take it out of the oven if you like.
Remove from pan immediately and cool on wire rack.
