I blogged a while ago about how I wanted to do more bread baking on a regular basis around here. It was going well, but I still wasn’t 100% satisfied with any of the bread recipes I tried. I tried lots of different ones since I enjoy giving new recipes a whirl. What I found was that almost all bread recipes make great toast, but I was missing a good sandwich bread. I needed the bread a bit denser. And a bread that wouldn’t totally dry out by the time we were at the last slice of the last loaf.
Well…I think I found one!
This recipe is from Farmgirl Fare. The recipe is called “Farmhouse White” and you can find it here. I made this batch on Monday–3 loaves.
Here is my mixing bowl next to the laptop on the kitchen table.
Dough is now ready to knead.
Fresh bread is so wonderfully good, I can’t encourage you enough to give it a try. The only equipment I needed to make this recipe was a big bowl, a wooden spoon, and loaf pans. And TIME. That is the hardest thing about bread. You need about a 1/2 day to make it. You are not working that entire time, but you need to be around to move it along to the next step.
I really hope you give homemade bread a try. It blows store bought away!!
thanks for posting this recipe. i’ve been looking for a good sandwich bread. can’t wait to try it out.
Your bread is beautiful! I’m so glad you’re having delicious success with my recipe. 🙂
You have inspired me once again! I will be making this, this weekend!
