Following are a few of my homemade bread recipes, and there are many more further down the page.
These easy bread recipes are a perfect addition to any meal. My mom's white bread recipe is the best I've tasted, and you can make it tonight. Try it with my homemade butter.
The first one is from my mom and it goes way back. It's Grandma's old fashioned homemade bread, and it's the best I have ever tasted. Certainly brings back fond memories.
We have never measured this one; so the measurements are not exact, but very close. We always doubled or tripled this recipe so we could make cinnamon rolls, dinner rolls, and two loaves of bread.
