The Bread Bible's Basic Soft White Sandwich Loaf

I baked this one today (started it yesterday) and I am impressed. I had never tasted a sandwich loaf so good! I have made rustic breads before but not sandwich loaves because I don't normally eat that type of bread so my husband just buys his from the supermarket (Pepperridge Farm type). I think from now on, there will be no eating supermarket plastic bread in this house! So good!

Very nice and I bet hubby loves it. The Bread Bible is one of the books I don't have but I decided I need to go on a Book Diet so until I fall off my diet I won't buy it.        


Great job with your bread.                                     weavershouse

Nice work, looks perfect.  Haven't tried that recipe from Bread Bible but will have to do so sometime.

I've made this bread several times and I agree that it's a delicious sandwich loaf.  I use it when I make a grilled cheese sandwich for my daughter and she loves them.  We also love the Hearthbread from the Bread Bible.

I have Beth's Bread machine book and wonder if that recipe is the same as in this book, I tried the country white bread and it was so good, I finally got it right, after making so many bad loaves, I tried the same recipe in the pullman pan  and it was good, perfect size for a slice of cheese, my son told me to stick to this recipe, I got my pullman pan from for alot less than the pain de mei pan at KA, same pan . I got the 13 inch, perfect for the Lock and Lock bread container. If this book you have is different, maybe more detailed than mine, I will get it.
