Homemade White Bread


We eat a lot of carbs in our house. Even though I follow a gluten free diet my family loves baked goods. I normally modify recipes to be gluten free so that I can eat them, but I also occasionally make regular foods that the rest of my family can enjoy. One of the major things that just doesn't taste the same gluten free is bread. Gluten free bread just doesn't have the same texture or taste, trust me I have tried just about every recipe I have been able to find. However, regular homemade bread is delicious and my family loves it. Since I canned homemade jam last night I knew when I woke up this morning that my two boys would demand homemade bread. There is something about homemade jam that just screams for a great slice of bread. Today I tried a new recipe for White Bread from allrecipes.com.

This recipe has 6 ingredients. It takes 3 hours of total time, 20 minutes of which is active and makes 36 servings. I only made a few minor changes to the original recipe. First I decreased the total amount of servings to 12 or one loaf. The recipe doesn't specify how long it takes to allow the bread to rise, but in my kitchen each rise takes approximately an hour. If you have never shaped bread the easiest way to do so is to make the dough into a rectangle, fold it into thirds like you would a letter and pinch the seam and sides closed.

My two boys devoured almost this whole loaf within a couple of hours. I liked that it was easy to slice and I had no problems with the bread overbrowning since the amount of sugar wasn't too high. The loaf came out looking nice and the dough was easy to work with, which is nice since some recipes are harder to work with than others. Overall, this is a nice basic bread recipe that would work well for people that have no bread making experience.
