White Sandwich Bread

Would you like to make your own fresh White Sandwich Bread at home?   Sounds exciting isn’t it?  I always used to think I have to learn how to make bread at home and till this date I was scared to try one.  I had this fear that I won’t be able to it.  I have been procrastinating for quite a while now.  Few days back, I just decided to do a collective post with my blogger friends and thought it will be a good idea to do it on bread, so this will give me the push I need.

So researched on breads and then decided to give it a shot.  When my daughter found out that I am making one, she couldn’t wait.  Mama when will it be ready, I was like it takes a few hours before I can bake it.  Once I baked it, then it was so hard for me to keep her away from yet.  Finally when I was ready to cut it I had to tell all of them that don’t touch until I am done with pictures.

They all loved it to the core.  One loaf was finished within 15 mins.  Even my little one gobbled it down who never wants to try anything.  It just made my day when he said, “Mama this is so good.”

I have adapted this recipe from ‘Cooking.NYtimes.com by Melissa Clark”.  The only thing I changed was reduced the sugar slightly. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I did.  Now lets see what is this bread all about??

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast (1 packet)
  • 1.5 cup lukewarm milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 3 tbsp butter, melted and little more greasing and brushing the loaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 5-6 cups all purpose flour

 

Directions:

In a mixing bowl or your electric mixer bowl, dissolve yeast in 1/4 cup of warm milk.  Add the remaining milk, sugar, salt, butter and the eggs.  Add the 5 cups of flour and mix it with the paddle attachment if using the mixer until its smooth for a couple of mins.  Change to the hook attachment and knead it on low speed, adding more flour if necessary. I added about 3 tbsp more.  Knead until the dough is stiff which is approx 10 mins.

Grease a large bowl with butter and turn the dough into it.  Using your hand you can flip it and cover the bowl with the clear plastic wrap and keep in a warm place until double in size.  It will be about a couple of hours but I left mine for about 4 hours.

When the dough is ready, punch it down and knead for another 2-3 minutes.  Grease the loaf pans and and shape it and place in the pans.  Let it rest for another 45 minutes to an hour covered with the clear plastic wrap.

Pre heat the oven at 400F and bake it for 10 minutes.  Lower the temperature to 350F and bake it for additional 20-30 minutes or until the loaves sound hollow when tapped and the tops are brown.

IMG_4414Pull it out of the oven and let it cool down in the pan for 5-6 minutes.  Take it out of the pan and place it on the cooling rack.  Let the loaves cool down completely and then you can cut them into slices.
