Identifying the special flavor of a brand name bread
I'm new to baking bread with a machine and am having a ton of fun with my Panasonic. One of the reasons I decided to give all of this a whirl is that I love Pepperidge Farm Original White Bread but want to have breads which have no preservativers, chemicals, etc. Only a couple of times in my life have I had bread which had that special taste of this brand and no one has been able to identify what ingredient or method gives it this taste. My mother, a great bread maker for awhile, produced a couple of loaves with this flavor but she had no idea what she did or did not do to produce it. Is there anyone out there who might have some ideas? I've checked all over the web to no avail and the bread books I've read did not help either. A million thanks if anyone can help me out.
