Ray's White Bread


no whole wheat here.

Mine is a very healthy home for the most part. I try to use and consume whole grains and vegetables wherever I can. However, Ray is very particular about the kind of bread he likes:
not whole wheat.

No whole wheat and no embellishment; he prefers fluffy, fresh, plain white bread.
Despite being simplicity itself, there are infinite versions to choose from. I have a short list of white bread recipes that I make for him, and this is the most recent.

This bread is for the person in your life with similar preferences.
It's made like a French bread and gets tenderness and flavor from some milk and butter.
Ray likes to slice off a chunk and warm it with butter, or as a tuna sandwich for lunch.

Vienna Bread
taken from
The Bread Machine Cookbook

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup milk
3 Tbs unsalted butter, cut into pieces
3 cups bread flour
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs gluten
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 3/4 tsp bread machine yeast

Add all ingredients to the bread machine pan in the order listed above. Set the crust to medium and program for the basic cycle. Press start. When the baking cycle ends, immediately remove the bread and place on a rack to cool to room temperature before slicing.
