old fashioned white bread

Feeling stressed? Take your frustrations out on a loaf of bread dough. The pounding is good for the texture and the soul while your tensions melt away.

The bread is made with milk for a tender and fine texture, just like your grandmother used to make. Enjoy!

Recipe from West Bend

  • 3/4 c milk
  • 1 T butter
  • 2 c bread flour
  • 1 T sugar
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 package yeast

Mix, knead, and bake at 375 for 18 minutes. Makes a 1lb loaf of bread to share with friends and family. Tiny fingers not included.
