Classic White Bread Recipe

Classic White Bread Recipe

April 27th, 2010  | Category: Bread


I always feel like I've accomplished something grand when I bake bread. I really don't know why. Considering some of the recipes I've tackled in the past, it certainly doesn't rank high on the difficulty scale. For instance, nothing would compare to these croissants.
