So I guess you guys know all my dirty little yeast bread secrets, about all the loaves I’ve ruined over the years…
But hey, I’ve also won two ribbons for yeast bread! So I’m not totally helpless, right? I mean I have like some sort of maybe talent sort of.
Anyway, fellow Kansan blogger, Diana Starenisic Deane, a local historian and author of Shadow on the Hill, asked me to do a guest post for her on bread. Yes, she knows all about my bread failure escapades and she still asked me! Her book, which I’ve read and highly recommend–it’s a true life murder mystery!–features bread dough as one of the clues to Florence Knoblock’s murder, and she thought it would be groovy to have a food blogger to do a bread post. Heck to the yes, I’m all over that, qualified or not!
I don’t do many step-by-step tutorials any more, but I did for this post since it’s special, and I hope you’ll do me the honor of stopping by Diana’s blog to check it out today. Besides, you’ll want the recipe for this old-fashioned white bread. It’s super simple, without any fat, eggs, or milk, and wow you won’t believe how good a loaf made with just flour, water, sugar, salt and yeast can be! Especially when you slather it in butter. :) Click here to check it out!
