Baking with Julia: White Loaves

I am back on Tuesdays with Dorie. Two years I baked with the group through Dorie Greenspan’s Baking: From My Home to Yours *. I gave up baking, because I couldn’t bake at least 2 recipes a month. Now the group starts with another book: Baking with Julia: Sift, Knead, Flute, Flour, And Savor… *. You have only to bake once a month to stay a group member, I think, that could work for me and my family. If I have ever needed a reason to buy a new cookbook, joining the group again is a good one.

The first recipe from the book has been chosen by Laurie and Jules. It’s the recipe on pages 81-82

White Loaves

Simple but tasty white loaves, which also taste great if toasted.

I am still a friend of scales and metric units, so here we are:

Instead of buttering the loaf pans (20 cm x 10 cm x 10 cm) I always line it with parchment paper

The loaves are done if the thermometer plunged into the middle of a loaf shows 93 °C/200°F.

    So so so so so good to have you back baking with the group, I missed you terribly as you were one of the first people I „met“ through the TWD experience. So nice that we got to start with a bread…you are the Queen of Bread Baking, no one does it better. This looks wonderful, as I knew it would at your hands!

    Your bread looks fabulous! I had to give up on TwD last time because I was gaining too much weight! Hopefully that won’t happen again.
