Does anyone have a great Artisan-type white sandwich bread recipe Please?
I am trying to find a really good, dense, Artisan-type white sandwich bread recipe to make for my family.
My husband is from the Netherlands, and he does not care for how soft the average white bread is that we get here in our grocery stores. Compared to the white bread that his mom gets from their open air markets, there is a HUGE difference.
The European white bread is very healthy, dense, and it tastes divine! It does not fall apart when condiments are spread on it, (they use butter as their mayonnaise), and when you toast the bread it tastes so great! It has a nice crunchy crust, and a good chewy texture on the inside.
Since my husband loves this type of bread, I set out to learn how to make it at home with my KA 600. I have gotten the French Baguette down to a science, even with the slashing when it goes in the oven, which took me forever and a day not to deflate the loaf when I tried the slashing..and now they come out looking really nice and tasting yummy!
Here at our local Sam's Club, there is a bread made by a company called Milton's Original Healthy Grain Bread. It comes in loaves of 2, and it is very reasonably priced at Sam's. However, Sam's is going to discontinue it, and that has started me on this quest to find a recipe that I can make at home. Milton's has the texture that I am seeking. They make 2 different types of white bread, but on their website 1 loaf of either is $12!! I am not paying $12 for 1 loaf of bread.
Please help me if you can! There has to be a good dense recipe somewhere! Thanks so much!
