White Loaves-Tuesdays with Dorie/Baking with Julia

“How can a nation be great if its bread tastes like Kleenex?”–Julia Child

Another round of baking-this time the Tuesdays with Dorie baking group will be using Baking with Julia by Dorie Greenspan.  If you aren’t familiar with the book, it’s a collection of recipes based  the PBS series  hosted by the unforgettable Julia Child. The group tops 300 members and will be baking bi-monthly instead of weekly as was the case in the TWD baking group.

White Loaves, the inaugural recipe was chosen by Laurie and Jules. Group rules state only the hosts feature the recipe so you will find it on Jules site or on page 81 of Baking with Julia. This bread recipe is a basic bread you will love to serve with soups, for sandwiches or toast. One loaf went in the freezer for later in the week. It’s relatively easy white bread recipe with added butter for a tender white crumb and familiarizes one with using yeast. It can be made completely by hand or with a heavy duty mixer using the kneading tool. If using the mixer, take care as mine danced all over the counter during the 10 minute kneading cycle. In other words, stay close!

    Oi, I think one of the most common themes of this recipe is stand mixer issues. I'm just glad mine stayed on the counter instead of taking a nose dive like some of the other bloggers'! And your photos are really lovely!
