I was concerned about pulling this one off…we have been experiencing really hot weather…like for weeks now! I didn’t want to miss a recipe but the thought of baking bread just wasn’t sounding as inviting as it would on a nice fall day. Thankfully today wasn’t as bad as it has been and I got on it first thing this morning. Even in the heat there is something to be said about bread baking in the oven…it smells great and you just feel so accomplished!! 🙂 I can tell baking through this cookbook is having an effect on me…I don’t freak out when it is a bread recipe ha ha!! 🙂
Although I usually chose wheat bread, after tasting those delicious white loaves we had made previously I wasn’t sure if these would hold up..especially for the rest of the tasting crew.
Making this bread was identical to the white loaves that we made before:
I have to say, the recipe calls for the bread to be baked for 35 minutes, so I checked on mine at 25 just to see how they were doing…and good thing because they were done. They cooked up really quickly. I did change one other thing…I couldn’t find malt extract at the usual stores that I check so I saw that someone posted that they used molasses in its place…worked out wonderfully…and I had that! 🙂
As soon as the bread was cool, my son and I cut a slice. Like I said before, there is something about homemade bread…this was awesome!! Like SO good! It makes me think I should be baking more bread…there is no comparison to store-bought. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!! 🙂
