Elaine's Most Excellent Sandwich Bread

"This recipe is from another Feingold mom (www.feingold.org) and is my absolute fave for regular bread. I use for sandwiches, french toast, buns, anything I need a good-bodied bread for. It's heaven on earth when freshly baked and spread with real butter! This bread has enough body to slice for sandwiches. Sometimes I substitute 3 T molasses for the sugar or add 1 T Italian seasoning. You can also put it on the dough cycle and shape into hamburger buns, hot dog buns or hoagie rolls."

  1. Forgot to put in stars.
  2. This is a great bread. I used 2 tablespoon of sugar since you said 2 T for grown-up bread. I think it would have been too sweet with 1/4 cup sugar. The taste and texture are great. Thanks cook from scratch :) Made for PAC Spring 2010


My passions are photography and cooking (a good combination to have a 'zaar!) I try to photograph every recipe I review. My family sometimes wishes we could just sit down to eat at night without first having to take pictures of what we are eating! I've been cooking for a long time and recently started baking from scratch. I have been a member at 'zaar for quite a few years and my tried-and-tried recipes come mainly from my favorite chefs here. I am dabbling in OAMC and pantry cooking and do a lot of baking due to my boys' food allergies. We follow the Feingold Program, an alternative to ADHD medications. Feingold eliminates food additives such as artificial flavors and colorings, synthetic sweeteners such as Equal and the petroleum-based preservatives such as BHT, BHA and TBHQ (ewww!!) You can find more information on the Feingold program by visiting the website at http://www.feingold.org. I have become a much better cook since starting the program two years ago and have become somewhat of a food snob because of it. I am a mom first and for-most. I also work with families who lose a child at or before birth. *I was formally mississippimorning.*
