Chef John's White Bread
These days, white bread doesn't get quite the love it deserves. But we can all agree that its buttery, slightly sweet, but mostly neutral flavor guarantees a superior sandwich experience, whether we’re talking tuna, chicken salad, or just plain old butter and jam. So why not bake up a loaf at home? Chef John takes a simple approach to this classic favorite, creating a sticky butter-enriched dough that rises twice: first in the mixing bowl and once more when scraped out into a basic loaf pan. To recreate that nostalgic store bought brand of sliced bread, you'll want to smooth out the dough to make it as neat as possible, as well as brush the top with butter or your favorite wash.
