Better Sandwich Bread

Better Sandwich Bread

I've been making two loaves of this bread every week for over a year. It is the best white bread we've ever had. It makes amazing toast, great sandwiches, and incredible french toast. It can be a little tricky the first time you make it, but don't give up - it's well worth the effort.

It's very important to get the right balance of flour and water in this recipe (aka hydration), so as with all bread and dough recipes, I highly recommend using a scale to measure the flour for easily repeated results and amazing bread.
