My grandma made bread like this twice a week! There’s nothing like a fresh loaf of bread to munch on!

White Bread
 

This bread recipe is inexpensive and so delicious!
Ingredients
  • ¼ cup milk
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 tbsp. butter or margarine
  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 3 cups unbleached white flour
  • nonstick cooking spray

Instructions
  1. Prepare the yeast (check out the packing instructions).
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave, then mix with the milk, the sugar, and the salt to the yeast liquid and stir it up until everything looks the same (a very light tan liquid).
  3. Then add two cups of flour to the mix , don’t add the rest yet.
  4. Start stirring, and then add the flour about ¼ cup at a time every minute or so.
  5. Now, start kneading.
  6. Take a bit of flour between your hands and then rub them together over the top of an area on the table where you’re going to knead the dough.
  7. Do this a few times until there’s an area on the table lightly covered in flour.
  8. Then grab the dough ball out of the bowl, slap it down on the table, and start beating on it. Do this for ten minutes.
  9. Just take the dough, punch it flat, then fold it back up into a ball again, and repeat several times. I also like to take it in my hands and squeeze and twist it.
  10. When the ten minutes are up, shape it into a ball.
  11. Set aside for a few minutes and repeat the kneading step.
  12. Place in a nonstick bowl with a cloth over the top and set aside for about an hour.
  13. The dough should be approx. double the size that it was before.
  14. Punch the dough down.
  15. Lay the dough out on the floured area and spread it out in a rectangle shape.
  16. You may need to put a bit more flour on it and on the table to prevent sticking.
  17. Roll it up!
  18. The roll should be roughly the same size as the bread pan.
  19. Tuck the ends of the roll underneath, with the “under” side being where the seam is. Then spray the bread pan down with nonstick cooking spray (or coat it with cornmeal) and put the loaf inside of the pan.
  20. Cover the loaf up with the towel and wait another hour.
  21. Put that loaf in the oven at 400F for 30 mins.
  22. When it’s done, pull it out and immediately remove it from the pan to cool.
