Best White Bread

I love autumn. There’s a chill in the air that begs me to fire up the oven.

For the past couple of months, I’ve been on a mission to find a great white bread recipe. I’ve tried dozens from well known cookbooks and famous foodies.  I started searching on Pinterest, and put out a plea  for some help with my quest.

Within minutes, I had an email from a sweet cousin in Phoenix…with a recipe…that turned out to be the best white bread I’ve ever made.

We baked up a batch on Sunday, and within an hour we had devoured two loaves, hot and drizzled with honey.  We transformed a loaf tonight into grilled cheese sandwiches and dipped them into steamy tomato soup. Tomorrow’s breakfast will most likely be toast with raspberry jam.

Add 5 more cups of flour. Beat well. Add more flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough doesn’t stick to the side.

Mix on high speed for 6 minutes then turn mixer off.

Let rest for 12 minutes.

Form into 4 loaves. Put in greased flour pans. Place in oven, turn oven to warm and let rise for 20 minutes.

Increase temp to 350 and bake approx. 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and brush tops of loaves with melted butter.
