Another loaf of white bread. Not only is it pretty, it was put to use making a mean grilled cheese sandwich.
King Arthur Flour Baker’s Companion is a fun book to peruse. Not only are there good recipes, there are tips and explanations throughout the book. For instance, what happens if you don’t use sugar and/or salt or if you add too much of either. Understanding the chemistry and the process of yeast and flour, the effects rainy weather has on the rising process.
In short, all stuff I never thought about before. The first recipe I started with was White Bread 101 as this is the foundation for many other breads in this book. Recipe may be found HERE
It made a great standup bread for grilled cheese.........
I’m thinking the recipes without potato flakes are better for our taste in white bread. It’s so moist and tastes great…but I am still on the hunt for the perfect white bread which will hold up to peanut butter. Now, don’t quit reading and don’t write this one off as a bad recipe. It’s good. I just need more firm bread for smearing that peanut butter.
Back to this book for more inspiration. It’s loaded with good recipes and information. Another book to go on my Amazon Wishlist.
Sending this to Heather for the BYOB (Bake Your Own Bread).
