You Are Spoiling Those Kids!!!
This is what daddy says when I make all white flour bread!! But I don't really think it will spoil them. Whenever I have a very busy evening routine and I don't get my wheat flour to soaking then I have to resort to white flour to make our 'daily bread!' But who's complaining??? Certainly nobody around here!!
I take 1 C. very hot water and combine that with 1 C. milk. Add 2 T. yeast and 1/4 C. honey to liquid. Let sit for 5 minutes. To this add 2t. salt, 2 eggs, 1/2 stick melted butter, and about 7-8 C. unbleached flour. Let rise until double (about an hour) shape into loaves and let rise for 15 minutes. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Remove from loaf pans and spread with butter and place a towel over them until cool enough to slice.
