I love baking. Sweets are my favorite, but bread is a close second. Usually it comes out good, but there are times when the dough doesn’t rise like it should. What a let down.
This recipe was super duper easy to follow, and it came out great! It rose like no other bread I’ve made has risen before. Maybe that’s because it 2 packages of yeast. Or maybe I’m just getting better at this cooking/baking thing. Let’s pretend I’m getting better.
I used my trusty KitchenAid mixer to mix and knead the dough. Why do it the hard way? The recipe calls for 3 cups + 3 cups (or maybe a little more) of flour. In the end, I probably added closer to 6 1/2 or 7 cups.
I’ve never witnessed dough rise so fast in my life. My kids and I left the house for a little bit and this is what we came back to.
I made the mistake of setting the loaf pans too close together and two became one. I carefully separated the siamese bread, but the loaves did deflate a little. Here is the baked product. After I removed a slice to taste of course.
Slather that bread in butter and you have a deliciously warm and tasty snack or side! Definitely keeping this recipe. Of course, it is much better served hot and buttered right out of the oven. I did freeze the second loaf for later. I am thinking of using it to make french toast or something. Stay tuned.
