Homemade Wonder Bread

READY IN: 3hrs 15mins
Recipe by Khandi Howard

This bread is most like the soft white bread that you buy at the store. If you like a softer crust, butter the top and put in a zip-loc bag.

I have made this bread 4 times now.. I follow the recipe exactly.. I add the flour a cup at a time and stop when the dough looks good and feels good. I know amounts of water vs flour needed can varry according to your elevation / area. This is THE go to bread. Sandwich bread , morning toast, grilled cheese.. this is THE best of the best. I even photo 'd the recipe for my jump drive, so that I won't loose it... ever. This is one of those recipes that convinces people I can do magic in the kitchen.. L O V E I T !!! (edit) I have now used this recipe many many many times , have changed things and experimented.. I always go back to this original recipe. You can't go wrong with this one.. its amazing
