A basic, yet lovely recipe for White Loaves, a classic sandwich bread. 


White Loaves

The Tuesdays with Dorie group of bloggers have moved on to a second cookbook, Baking with Julia.  Twice a month, I will be joining the 300 members to bake a recipe chosen from this cookbook.  First up are these White Loaves, made from a simple, yet delicious bread recipe.

White Loaves

My dough seemed very elastic, and there was a bit of trepidation as I formed the loaves.  I almost tossed it in the trash and started over, thinking I may have added too much flour. But I trudged ahead. The dough rose beautifully each time and formed stately, browned loaves in the oven.  I took the bread out of their pans for the last 10 minutes of baking allowing the exterior to turn golden. A crisp crust and chewy interior. The taste testing hubby gave it his approval. Whew.

  1. Great looking bread, so light and airy. We made a decision to always add whole wheat flour, making our bread 50/50 so we can benefit from the added fibre. I received the Baking with Julia book for Christmas this year; I have yet to bake anything from it, but it looks incredible.

  2. Perfect loaves of bread. They look so delicious, I can almost smell them baking:)

  3. I have that book but haven’t cooked from it in years…need to open it back up again, it seems. I understand the trepidation, but the bread looks lovely!

  4. I look forward to the tartine post! Your loaves look fantastic.

  5. My goodness! Those are some spectacular looking loaves. The rise is incredible. Way to go!

  6. Soft and delicious perfectly yummy bread !!

  7. Perfectly beautiful bread! I really enjoyed doing a bread. I made one of mine with a cinnamon swirl. So nice to see so many FFwD people participating in this group. Looking forward to the tarts.

  9. 300 members? Wow I certainly did not know that! That is an amazing food community. I love bread that has nice elastic texture. This looks so good. I can eat three times a day with simple toast with jam, sandwich, and maybe soup as a dinner with this bread. 🙂

  14. HI…so glad you are baking in this group too. I’m really excited about some of these recipes and also really happy that I have friends, like you, baking along with me. Nice post and so glad your bread worked out.

  15. That is a beautiful, perfect loaf of white bread, Lizzy! This is the kind of bread that I’m used to baking…I went a little bit out of my “comfort zone” when I made the rye bread!

    I would love a slice of this with some jam with my coffee in the morning. Yumm:DDD

  16. Sometimes, I think bread baking can be surprisingly amazing! Some bread doughs can be nice and smooth but the breads can turned to be dry or tough…Surprisingly, some bread doughs can be watery or lumpy and yet, the breads can turned out to be soft and delicious….It’s all about chemistry!

    Lucky that you didn’t toss these breads into the bin and good that you went ahead to do the baking 😀

  17. Glad to be baking with you. This bread is perfect.
