TWD--BWJ White Loaves
I'm happy to be baking again with the TWD bakers. Our new cookbook Baking with Julia is full of wonderful recipes. I love Dorie's style. I feel like she is in my kitchen baking with me. Her directions are clear and friendly, encouraging me along. Telling me not to worry if, 'the dough comes apart with the addition of butter---beating will bring it back together.' And it did!
Our recipe this week was White Loaves. This recipe came together easily in my Kitchen Aid. Ten minutes of kneading gave my machine a good workout. Better it than me. The dough was silky smooth, wonderful to work with. As it baked the house smelled heavenly. Once it was out of the oven I told the family that Dorie said to wait till the loaves cooled before cutting. They couldn't do it. They ate the complete loaf, quickly and enjoyed every bite.
This recipe will be repeated often. The recipe can be found on Jules Blog, or just purchase the book. We have plenty of new bakers this round, check the TWD site and see how they liked White Loaves.
Could you wait till the bread cooled before you sliced it?? Please tell.
