Grandma VanDoren's White Bread
March 13, 2010

I have orders from the kids: "we will not eat that stuff from the store anymore". My son loves to cook and was amazed at the process and simplicity at making the perfect homemade white bread-think I have a budding chef! I have been looking for this recipe all my life! I wanted an EASY bread -not from a breadmaker -(there's nothin' like the feel of kneading fresh dough!) I am sooo pleased! As others have said it freezes so well (I am going to attempt freezing dough, after 1st rise, so we have fresh from the oven...!) If you want a simple, delectable and versatile bread (rosemary/thyme, cinnamon/raisin, cheddar, etc..), the possibilities are endless-this is your bread!! I actually got four good sized loaves!! There should be 10 stars for this one! P.S. to Ms. Sim-I met a lady a long time ago who had a 'secret' family recipe from her grandmother for the most delicious homemade olives I have ever had (and I DON'T LIKE them!) Anyway, she would be a little self centered w/ the attention whenever asked for the recipe (many did). She died a few years ago along w/her family olive recipe. She had no children or siblings. So her grandmothers wonderful recipe is lost. I am TRULY grateful to you who share these family treasures. I hope Grandma Van Doren is pleased w/ all the VERY happy children she is feeding!! My best to you!
