Wonder Bread at home
I'm a little embarassed to ask this among people who appreciate good bread, but I have a teenager who will eat nothing but Wonderbread style white bread. It has to be soft with a tasteless and very soft crust. All of the white bread recipes I have made at home have a chewy, thick crust and a heavier crumb than she will eat.
I'm trying to save money by baking our bread at home, and really enjoying replacing expensive artisan style breads and challahs with my own delicious breads. But I want to stop buying white bread too. We end up throwing away about 1/3 of the white bread we buy as it is beause two kids can't eat through the standard sized loaf before it gets too stale. Homemade loaves are smaller and less expensive. I also have this fantasy that I can slowly eliminate some of the sugar and sneak in some whole grain without her noticing if I do it very gradually (the persnickety teenager is pretty smart, so that may not work!). My little one is my biggest fan and will eat anything I bake, but I still have to buy sugary white bread for the teenager, and the little one will eat it if its there.
I know there are a lot of white bread recipes here, but can anyone point me to some that are more like Wonderbread? I did find one elsewhere (Counterfeit Wonder Bread on [link removed because it has been bought by a domain squatter]) but it calls for lecithin and I really don't want to have to go searching for that. KA's website says that lecithin improves shelf life and reduces the need for fat in a bread recipe. If I left it out, woudl it make an appreciable difference in flavor?
