White bread

Or, if you prefer, faux whole grain bread (as my roommate referred to it).

Incredibly simple and tasty, this bread is perfect for all your sandwich-makin’, jam spreadin’, soup dippin’ needs. Makes two loaves!

Proof

  • 2 c. warm water
  • 2/3 c. white sugar
  • 1 1/2 tb. dry yeast

Add

  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt

Mix in 6 c. bread flour, knead, and let sit in a warm spot for one hour (I preheat my oven and then turn it off once it’s toasty). Once it’s doubled in size, cut ‘er in half and shape your loaves, then let rise another 30 minutes.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes. I melted equal parts honey and butter, and covered the hot loaves with the (mostly clean) paintbrush I’ve been using to glaze with. I also added some rolled oats and flax seed to the dough, hence the “whole grains.” Get creative!
