So I have never made bread from scratch without a bread maker but decided to give this a try, it's rising now but my dough was pretty stiff and not as pliable as the video showed. I kneaded for almost 15 mins, what did I do wrong and how do I fix it?

@Linda Marie, 8 minutes of kneading is just about standard? If that seems too long or difficult you can use a mixer or food processor with a dough attachment. Kneading isn't that difficult to do for 8 minutes though. I use a mixer but I usually do the last few minutes myself and I always have to force myself to stop before I over do it. @bearbonz, I haven't heard of doing that especially with a white bread dough but after the first rise, I punch down and then knead the bread a few times to get more air out, and let it bench rest for 10 minutes (with a bowl upside down over my dough) and finally I shape my loaves by folding the dough like an envelope and pinching the seams. I noticed in the video the baker didn't really do much shaping though and the bread turned out beautifully. I am excited to try the lard in my bread. I am among the few people who believe animal fat is healthier most all other fats. And nothing could be more delicious. It is inexpensive too.

This recipe is pretty good, 3/5 stars. I'm usually horrible with doughs, and I gave it try... To my surprise, the bread came out great! In terms of texture it was nice and fluffy, but the taste was pretty bland...I'd suggest adding some more butter to give it a nice buttery taste next time.

Little bakers tip. For a softer bread, punch down the loaf and let rise a second time in the bowl before transferring to their pans. Baste the top lightly with butter before baking to get a beautiful golden brown crust.

These loaves looks great! I'll have to definitely try this recipe next! We haven't bought a loaf of bread in two months now, and I love it. :)

One of my fondest memories as a child is my mom making homemade bread and serving it to us after it cooled down, just enough to eat without burning your hands or mouth, and nicely buttered. I have only made it a couple of times and it has been years. I really want to try making some again.
