bread baker’s apprentice’s white sandwich bread

We’re staycationing this week and (this is really unrelated) we’ve been trying to eat down our fridge and pantry (and stay out of grocery stores). We ran out of bread (all those sandwiches we’ve been making for our beach days!) and so I whipped up the white bread (variation 1 for those of you with the book) from The Bread Baker’s Apprentice. I was super-diligent this time and kept a close eye on the bread so that it did not overproof. Still, the loaves were not super tall — I was expecting more oven-spring — but they were a beautiful golden-brown and had a rich buttery flavor. This morning P. made fried egg sandwiches (with cheese and bacon) on toast from this bread. Yum! 🙂
