I sent a message to my sister that the bread was out of the oven and she could come get it. I expected her to say she would pick it up tomorrow when she came for dinner; but she texted to say she was on her way! As I was wrapping it up for her, she said not to bother for she would tear into it as soon as she got home. She was not kidding... she texted a short time later to say that it was yummy, and her son who has a limited palate said it was great!
I was going to wait until tomorrow to slice this wonderful, scrumptious smelling loaf to make egg salad sandwiches; for there is nothing better than fresh (store bought - before this post!) white bread for egg salad. However, Andy could not wait and had to have a slice at dinner with his soup.
I have to admit - this is good. Why would anyone want to buy store bought bread is beyond me. I know... time. It may sound time consuming, but really it is very simple, and you probably have all the ingredients except maybe the yeast in your cupboard.
Give baking a loaf a try; I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
Success meter (1-3): 3
This is the creamiest my yeast has ever looked.
I'd say my dough has doubled.
A bit lopsided...
Indentation remained as it should!
Ready for the oven.
I prefer my crust to be soft rather
than crispy, which this is.
Makes wonderful toast.
Fresh bread ~ a must-have for egg salad.
