Ok, I have made a lot of breads on this blog, but FINALLY! Finally I have a recipe for a good every day sandwich loaf. Thanks Granny!!! This recipe come courtesy of Annie's Granny who got it via Dave at Our Happy Acres. I altered it to include some whole wheat flour, but other than that, this is a super easy recipe, and SO delicious!
1 cup whole wheat bread flour
2 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 t salt
1/4 c sugar
1 T instant yeast (I used 1 package of rapid rise)
2 T butter
1 cup warm water
Dave makes this with a bread machine, but I don't have one, so here is how I did it.
Mix together the flours, salt, sugar, yeast. Add in the soft butter and the egg. Mix until the dough comes together, then knead until the dough is slightly tacky, but not sticky, and is smooth and elastic. I used my stand mixer, and it took about 10 minutes.
Allow to rise until doubled in size. Pour the dough out onto a lightly oiled counter top, and flatten into a rectangle, then roll it up and place into a loaf pan. Allow to rise again until it looks, well, like bread. Place into a 350 degree oven and back for about 40-45 minutes until golden brown, making sure to rate the pan halfway through.
