Who loves Sweet Bread????
The other night, trying to distract my thoughts, from my health issue, that I am facing ... I baked! YES! Sweet Bread ... using the family recipe - made from scratch! This loaf turned out huge; although, I did call myself limiting the amount of yeast, that I used. Oops! #photos #pictures #food #bread #baked
And, it is delicious! I am enjoying a slice, right now - warmed up! And, BUTTERED! ♥
I can't share the complete family recipe; however the basic 'Sweet Bread' ingredients are:
Approximately, 5 1/2 Cups of Flour
Approximately, 1 7/8 Cups of Water
1 Egg - Large
Approximately, 1/2 Cup Sugar
Approximately, 3 Tablespoon Non Fat Dry Milk Powder
1/4 Cup Margarine (I substitute Canola Oil - it's healthier)
About 1 teaspoon of Salt
And, about 1 1/4 Tablespoon of Dry Yeast (Ha! This is what got me in trouble! Look at the size of my loaf!)
This recipe makes about a 3 pound loaf. Experiment - try to make the size loaf that you want! Or, make rolls! Just ENJOY! Who doesn't like sweet bread?
