Bread Success

YAY!  Thanks Pie for the recipe.  This is the best loaf of bread I've ever made.   I even made a point of buying bread flour as to not take any chances.  I have been told it isn't necessary but it was worth the $1.15

Just wanted to share.

Fantastic and two loaves no less.  A friend brought a whole grain bread over for our St. Paddy's dinner and it was great.  I need to get that recipe.

So much to do outside so I'm not doing any bread baking to speak of and won't until I return from Idaho.  Think I'll try the following recipe soon:

YUM! (post #71166, reply #4 of 5)

that recipre looks good. I am going to stick with this recipe for a bit.  But then I'm going to try the recipes from the 5 min per day bread books that you suggested.

Bread does take a time commitment, that's for sure.

GORGEOUS!  Those are beautiful loaves!  That was the Julia Child recipe?

Julia's recipe (post #71166, reply #3 of 5)

Yes, it is Julia Child's recipe.  I let the bread rise twice the amount of time that the recipe called for...I had to fight every instict of mine to not follow the time line.  The crumb was very nice.  I am sure if I keep working with this recipe I'll make an even better loaf next time.  I have never made a recipe that asked for butter to be added to the bread while kneading...that was new.

Have you tried it?

Hey kitchengoddess,

Yes, I have made the white bread, but I make the whole wheat version from the same cookbook more often.  It's great too!
