A Delicious and Simple White Bread Recipe

We cannot always eat sourdough bread, there are occasions when we need a break from sourdough and this recipe is a great choice.

The Masterful Ingredients

In a bowl combine and set aside:
3 and 1/3 Cups Warm Water
3 Tablespoons Yeast **
a little sugar

In the mixer bowl combine:
9 Cups Bread Flour
1 Tablespoon Salt
9 Tablespoons Sugar
3/4 Cup Powdered Milk
3/4 Cup Dry Instant Potatoes
3 Tablespoons Vital Wheat Gluten
3 Tablespoons Powdered Lecithin

In the microwave melt:
12 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter*

Slowly add the yeast mixture to the flour mixture and add the melted butter. Adjust the dough with either a little more water or flour to get the right consistency.

Run the mixer on medium speed with the dough hook for 15 minutes.

Prepare four bread pans. Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees F.

When the dough is ready, divide into four loaves and place on top of the stove and cover with a damp cloth. Place the bread in the oven when the side of the loaves are equal to the sides of the pans. Bake for 25-35 minutes.

Wait 20 to 30 minutes to cool down before slicing. Enjoy!

* You may chose to use salted butter.
** Instead of yeast you might try substituting Tara Natural Yeast but keep in mind that rise times will be 4-6 hours. Click on the Sourdough Bread link above.
