A very simple but satisfying recipe, I bake a lot of bread and this recipe is now my staple for white bread. If your dough is taking a long time to rise, here is a tip that will cut the time approximately by half: before you begin mixing your dough, turn your oven on the lowest setting possible, let it preheat for five minutes and turn it off. Put some water on to boil, I use a teapot. Before you put the dough in to rise for the first time, pour about an inch of boiling water in a pie plate and place on the oven rack below your bowl of dough. You will not need to cover your bowl with a damp towel if you use this method. Make sure that you turn your oven off after a few minutes of preheating and use an oven safe bowl. This method not only cut the rising time for this recipe, but I got a lighter, less-dense loaf than some people on here have described.
