Cooking For Tuesdays

Just a little of what I like to cook.

Tuesdays with Dorie: White Loaves

on February 7, 2012

well, the loaves turned out beautiful. if you want the recipe, you will have to go to .

this as a simple recipe. very simple, and i like simple, lol. except i don’t have a big mixer. definitely something to ask my hubby for. again.

my little hand mixer died a valiant death.


this was before i added the butter. i had to mix it by hand. tough work! ou can see my little helper back there. she can’t get enough of the bread!


it balled up fine, though. πŸ™‚


and while not pretty, it did rise like it was supposed to! this is a first for me and homemade, non-breadmachine, bread.


they seemed too small for the loaf pans,


but, they rose fine that time too. amazing… for me, this was going great!


they turned out so pretty!! however… my 12 year old helper (thanks, cassie!!) was reading off the directions as i cooked. between that and juggling a 2 year old and an 8 year old, i didn’t put the salt in the bread…

and we didn’t catch that until we cut it to eat it!! lol

this is definitely a “do again” recipe! πŸ˜€ and this time, i will make sure there are NO distractions, and get the salt in there. i made garlic toast out of it, and it was very good. this morning, gonna dredge it in eggs, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar, and try it as french toast. lol, i KNOW this bread is good, i’ll just have to be more careful next time!!

    Your bread came out nice and brown–lovely! And you’re actually not the only one who made it sans-salt. This is such an easy recipe that I think most of us will be making it again anyway! Best of luck on your do-over!

      thank you πŸ™‚ i have enough bread flour left for a half recipe. i have some frozen blueberries. i bet they would be great in the bread! lol, and this time, i will make sure the salt is right there in front of me πŸ˜‰

  2. Great looking bread! Bet your girls had fun helping you, so much fun to share these experiences with them.

      they had a blast πŸ™‚ my cousin has 3 wonderful girls, ranging from 11 to 14. my 2 year old adores them! lol, my son, 8, doesn’t have an interest in cooking except the final product πŸ˜‰

      this was a worthwhile experience, and i am so looking forward to baking some more.

  3. Hope a new mixer is in your future! While not necessary they certainly make baking easier! We loved this bread:)

    I salted when I ate mine. With butter. Yum! Gorgeous loaves!

    Nothing like making bread by hand! They turned out great! You can always sprinkle a little salt after slathering the bread with yummy butter πŸ™‚
