our favorite white bread


this recipe will make two large loaves, and we often make one of them into cinnamon raisin bread. to do this, after the first rise knead about 1/3 cup raisins into the dough before rolling it out flat. then after rolling it out flat, brush the dough with melted butter, then sprinkle with a heavy layer of a cinnamon-sugar mixture (1 tsp cinnamon to each tbsp sugar) and roll up the dough into a loaf as in the recipe. i also usually grease the pan a little more heavily for a cinnamon raisin loaf. this bread made wonderful yet inexpensive christmas gifts!
