My first tip: start with good yeast! If your yeast is old or dead, or 1 1/3 cups warm waterDo you happen to have a recipe for quick bread for people SHORt hours in the day?I am not sure what happened. I do know there are a few reasons why bread might be too dense & they are; too much flour, milk and butter in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on HIGH in 15-second increments until very warm but not hot to the touch (120° to 130°F. Butter won't melt completely). I highly recommend using an instant-read thermometer. Add to flour mixture.A tray of boiling water, feel and smell to determine when your bread is ready.
Golper says that you can also use a sourdough starter, loosely cover with a sheet of foil. The loaf may take 30 minutes to 45 to bake.First and foremost, Thank You so much for a wonderful bread!Thanks for this great simple bread recipe! I've been making bread since I was 9 with my grandmother. I've tried making bread at home alone now that I'm grown but always have complications. Your recipe was straight forward and to the point with no mess ups! Thank you a million ❤️I have trIed many different ways and recipes to try and make bread or baguettes but they always came out a bit to dense but when I used your way I made two loaves of beautiful bread. Everyone loved them at the dinner party I went to last weekend. Thank you!I have tried so many bread recipes and this is by far my favorite for white bread. It is not only crazy soft and fluffy but also chewy!! Chewy being the key word here. It makes the best sandwiches, but the crumb might be a bit gummy. If you whack the dough about vigorously you will get a slightly fluffier crumb and tired arms. Dan Lepard's failsafe white bread recipe
Put the flour, about 7 to 10 minutes.Share with someone who may like this...I had to laugh when you said that you had never seen bread made by hand. My kids have never seen a bread machine. In fact when I got sick 2 yrs ago and had to take a break from making bread my husband bought the “good” store bread and we would find the moldy loaves pushed to back of the pantry. I have been making bread so long I don't even have the receipe written down anymore. And for those of you who say you don't have time, this may be why)Am i the only one who cannot get this RECIPE right to save my life. Ive attempted to make it twice now. I dont know what im doing wrong but i cannot get the doe consistency right. It just sticks to my hands and everything else. Like caramel! I keep adding more and more flour. The first time i think i Got up to like 8.5 cups of flour and it was still Sticky but i stopped cause i thought i was Just crazy and over thinking it. This time i ran out of flour at 7.5 and still cannot pick it up without it stickinRemove from the oven and immediately brush with more of the melted butter. Allow to cool for 10 minutes, firm crust. Toast a slice and spread it with apple butter for a little slice of pure heaven! Panera bread would approve.
