Blue Ribbon White Bread
I made this and it looked and smelled wonderful!! The taste is makes fantastic toast or for a side of bread for dinner but as sandwich bread it is a little too dense. My 4yr old LOVES it, he will eat the bread with nothing on it. I made it with bread flour instead of all purpose, maybe that is why it is so dense. Next time I am going to half it & use all purpose flour.
