Bread Recipe

bread-cereals-bake-baked-162440

This is the best scratch-made bread recipe I’ve ever used!  This bread is perfect for sandwiches, toast, and goes great with any meal!  The texture is firm and holds together well yet simultaneously soft and fluffy.  This is a great beginner’s recipe. In fact, this was the first bread recipe I’ve used and fell in love with instantly!  I try to make this at least once a week for my family.  If I make more than one, I’ll freeze the other to save.  A loaf has the shelf-life of 2 days or so until I start to notice a stale texture, you may also store in the fridge to prolong the life span of your bread.  I love this recipe and even better, I love knowing That my family is not consuming preservatives and additives in their food.  I hope you all will enjoy this and if you do decide to use this recipe, please comment with any questions or concerns and let me know how it turns out for you! ❤
