The Bread that I made.....looks pretty-I think! Recipe included.
I got my bread made. I wish I would have let it cook as long as the recipe said. Our oven usually cooks things faster and of course I got very anxious to see and taste the bread. So, I pulled it out too early. So, I had to put it back in the oven. The kids really liked it. They love bread I think as much as their Dad and I do. I'm adding the recipe to the bread here so if anyone wants to make it they can. Just remember to let it finish baking....don't be like me and be impatient! I got it from Sugar n' Spice that posts over on the Taste of Home bulletin board. I have other recipes that my friends over there have posted for me to try. I can't wait to make them all.
Basic White Bread
2 (1/4 ounce) packages active dry yeast
2 3/4 cups water
