bread recipe evaulation
my mother used to make a white bread that was delicious, since she passed on, I started to make bread, over the last few years I was never able to come close, but a recent recipe I tried almost hit the nail on the head, the only ingredient I changed was using crisco instead of lard, wonder if any more experienced nakers might take a look at this recipe and see if there might be a way to keep the taste & texture by reducing the calories. this recipe was baked at 390-400 deg for 30 min makes 2 loaves. I am going to stay with this one so far, but as I mentioned if I could cut down on the fat & calorie, it makes delicious toast and sandwich bread.
