My Soul To Taste

Universal bread dough? 
Sep. 25, 2013 8:22 am 
Who doesn't love fresh, home-made bread???  This girl sure does! 

My husband has recently developed elevated blood pressure, and as you may know, store-bought bread is very high in sodium.  This combined with my love affair with fresh bread led me on a journey to find the perfect home-made white bread recipe. 

An unfortunate truth about many white bread recipes is that, once cooked and sliced, they just can not stand up to being used for sandwiches; they crumble or tear, and generally just don't hold together well once condiments and meat/lettuce/cheese are applied.

I've tried many, many recipes, always on the trail for that elusive perfect bread.  I think I may have found it! 

The Sweet Dinner Rolls recipe found on this site has turned out to be the most universal bread dough recipe that this girl has ever had the fortune to encounter!  I now use this recipe for not only dinner rolls, but for white loaves, cinnamon rolls, calzones, Stromboli, easy pocket dinners, and the list goes on. 

This recipe is so easy to put together, either in the bread machine, or by hand, and has the most beautiful texture.  And the taste???  The taste is outta this world!  Just slightly sweet (and this can easily be adjusted to taste), the perfect hint of yeast, and we musn't forget the butter.  Oh yes, you can taste the butter in this recipe.  The taste is reminiscent of challah or Hawaiian bread, but the texture is sturdier, making the perfect sandwich slices. 

Ladies and gents, my search is over!  I am confident that you won't find a better white bread recipe out there.  Go!  Try it now.  And let us know if you agree.

About Me
I've been cooking for about 14 years now. I'm an IT geek by trade, but cooking is my passion in life and I dream of the day when I can feed people for a living. I have to admit, I wouldn't be the cook I am today without tools like All Recipes and all the great cooks from everywhere who provide their reviews and priceless advice about how to make a good recipe GREAT!
My favorite things to cook
Oh, my! There are too many to name. I tend toward really deeply flavorful dishes. The more layers of flavor, the better. Indian, Mexican and Italian are probably my faves to cook, but especially to EAT!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Since I was a small child, my family has had a yearly tradition of making Christmas candy and cookies. These wonderful treats are given to friends and family for a hand-made Christmas gift. The love shines through with every bite!
My cooking triumphs
I have recently begun catering two nights a week and the group that I cater to has raved about every dish I've fed them. I have to tip my hat to the recipe submitters on All Recipes for providing me with the tried and true dishes that these guys love so much. I don't believe there is anything more soul-completing for a cook than to have a room fall silent at meal time, with an occasional groan of pleasure heard as they eat a dish you've created.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I first got together, I wanted to make us a real, home cooked, comfort food meal, and attempted to fry chicken. The temperature was set way too high on the pan of oil, and, of course, when I put the chicken in, it began to smoke. The smoke alarm went off, and I'm surprised the local fire department didn't show up! Needless to say, this was a disaster! I didn't attempt to cook again for almost 2 years! I'm so gald I found the determination to start again, and I haven't looked back since!
