Fresh Bread


Very few things say home more than fresh baked bread.  Clothes hanging on the line run a close second in my book.  I just pulled this bread from the oven and thought it looked soooooo good.  It smells delicious too.  I tried a different recipe today and am hoping it will be good.  I needed a good sandwich bread recipe.  Here is the recipe I used:

1-1/3 plus 1tbsp. water, 2 tbsp. butter, 4-1/4 cups flour, 3 tbsp. sugar, 2 tbsp. dry milk, 1-1/2 tsp. salt, 2 tsp. yeast.   I put these ingredients into my bread machine on dough cycle and let it do its job.  When the cycle was finished, I took the bread out of the machine, shaped it into a loaf and put it into my loaf pan.   If you do not have an extra long loaf pan, you will need to make 2 loafs.  Bake at 350 degrees until done.  It takes about 30 min. in my oven.

I also have been working on apron patterns and I think I have decided which one to do the matching aprons in.  I just have to adjust the pattern a little to compensate for what I don’t know how to do.  I will show pictures soon.  By the way, thanks Dave, for fixing my problem on the computer.

Warmer temperatures here today-35 degrees.  Hardly any wind.  A really nice day.  I have to go raid my material stash.  I will need a piece large enough to do all 3 aprons.  I’m not sure I have anything.  Hopefully, I will, as I would like to get started on them today.

Enjoy your day and God bless.

  1. I like the long loaf of bread. It looks wonderful.

    We have fog right now. We have a lot of storms coming in for the week. Hopefully it will be done early this coming week.

    Have a great day. Can’t wait to see some pictures of the aprons.



  2. Yum! Your bread always turns out so good. Can’t wait to see the aprons. I now have whatever Quentin had and it’s going to leave me with an ugly cold sore 😦 If I wasn’t sick I would be outside enjoying our heat wave!


  3. I love that long loaf of bread! I have never seen a pan that long. I bet it was delicious. I hope you have a blessed Sunday with your family 🙂


  4. That bread looks so good. Do you think that recipe would work without a bread machine ? Where did you get your long loaf pan?

    Have a blessed weekend!
