White Bread for my PBJ Foldover

June 17, 2016

 I have been craving a good PBJ on white bread, so I made some bread. I am not big on the bread here in Costa Rica. So on the good side, we don't eat much bread, unless I make it. So now I have had the first piece with butter and then I proceeded to my fold over PBJ. As you can see. This was a very easy bread to make. Try it for some really good white bread sandwiches. Sometimes you just gotta have it.

3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons yeast

1 1/4 teaspoon salt

2 Tablespoons sugar

4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

1 1/8 cup lukewarm mild ( 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons)


​1 Combine all ingredients ( leave out 1/2 cup flour) and mix thoroughly in a large bowl

2 Add reserved flour a Tablespoon at a time to the mixture until a soft, smooth dough is formed

you may need more flour or less depending on the weather.

3  Just add enough flour until dough comes away form the bowl and it doesn't stick to you fingers to much. 

4 Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for about 10 min. 

5 Place in large bowl and cover and let rise for 1 hour. Or, until puffy. 

6 Transfer dough to a lightly oiled surface and using your hands pat out into a rectangle, roll up, and  shape into a 8 in. log.  Pinch along seam and place in a greased loaf pan, ( 8 1/2 x 4 1/2) I used cooking spray , seam side down.

7 Cover and let rest for 1 hour.

8 Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 35 - 45 minutes or until golden, remove from pan and let cool on wire rack. Enjoy your bread.
