White Bread

There is nothing better than homemade white bread to go with breakfast, sandwiches, and even out tomato salad, recipe will be posted shortly. White bread is the staple of every day living. This weekend Darrick has been in  bread making mood, follow us to see the others.

Here is what you will need

1 cup scalded milk (boiling)
1/4 cup sugar
2 1/2 tsp salt
6 tbsp shorting
1 package yeast
1 cup warm water
6 cups flour

  • Combine scalded milk, sugar, salt, and shortening in a pan, let cool, mean while put the yeast in the warm water and stir until evenly mixed. then add to the milk mixture. Add in 3 cups of flour and mix until smooth, then add remaining three cups and mix until smooth.
  • Then you will need to knead the dough on a clean and lightly floured surface. Place the dough in a buttered bowl, then brush the top of the dough with butter, cover with a towel and let sit until it doubles in size.
  • Once the dough has doubled in size, punch down the dough and flip onto lightly floured board and cut in half. butter two 9x5x3 pans and place the dough in them, spreading the dough out evenly in the pans. Let sit for 30 minutes before placing in the oven.
  • Place the pans in a 400F preheated oven, they should take about 50 minutes to cook or until browned on the top, once removed from the oven, remove the bread from the pan and lightly butter the tops.

  1. Looks great! For a fabulous crust, try placing a rimmed cookie sheet filled with water in the oven during the last 10 minutes of baking your loaves...Old French bakery trick that creates that symphony of crackly goodness in a true French loaf.

    I bake all of our bread in the Pampered Chef loaf pans....stones make the best baked goods!
