Homemade White Bread

I made my first loaf of homemade bread about a week ago! Since homemade bread only lasts 2-3 days on the counter, I cut up the bread and placed it in foil and ziploc bags (2 slices each). So, whenever I want some bread, I just take out a bag and place the slices in the toaster for a minute or two. Next time, I plan to make and freeze two sliced loaves of whole wheat bread.

You can see from the photo above of the bread's innards that I rolled the dough in a somewhat jelly-foll fashion and still ended up with a little opening in the top right part of the bread. The whole got bigger towards the middle to end of the bread, and then it closed up again. I will have to roll it tighter next time. The bread still was/is (I still have some in the freezer!) very good and functional.

I followed the recipe in my Betty Crocker cookbook (a gift from an ex-neighbor who ostensibly didn't get married), but you can find the recipe here. I did half of the recipe to yield one loaf, since it was my first time.

May I never go back to that bread-in-a-bag you see in grocery stores again! :)


  1. That looks so perfectly shaped and proofed. I always have problems with baking sandwich loaves as evenly as yours.

  2. Thanks for the compliment! This was my first loaf of bread. It didn't come out perfectly on the inside, but it was very good. I think rolling the dough as tightly as you can makes it come out better and more evenly.

  3. Yummy! Your bread looks sooooooooooooooooo good, Mem! Sooooooooooooooooooo good! And your Oreo cookies, delicious!

    love ya!
