Jamie’s (no not J.O.!) Easy White Bread
When I read Jamie’s post over at “Life’s a Feast” one of my most foavorite food blogs these days by the way (I love her stories, alsways makes me smile!) I knew this would be THE perfect bread for the weekend.
I mean what’a not to like of a bread that says “easy”?
Especially when your head has been wonky all week due to massive headache attacks and you are expecting guests on Sunday morning for Brunch?
As usual I needed to tweak it a bit due to the fact that I mostly use spelt flour, so here are my tweaks:
1 cup rice flour
1 package active dry yeast
2 cups buttermilk
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs butter
1 ½ tsp salt
Apart from tweaking the ingredients a bit I sticked to the instructions given by Jamie. So I won’t copy them here, please go over to her blog you will not regret it anyway! I promise!
The only advice I will give you additionally to Jamie’s instructions:
If you use spelt, like I did, please keep in mind to not overknead the dough, it needs less kneading and most importantly:
Watch your dough while rising. Cut down the rising times to 1/2 or 2/3 at the max. Otherwise your dough is most likely to overproof and you do not want it to do this, right? ;o)
At least this is my experience working with spelt…
But back to the bread then:
It was so easy and quick to make and smelled so heavenly when it came out of the oven. Thankfully it was so late in de evening and I was so tired so I could resist to cut into it right away after taking it out of the oven.
As I said since I was expecting friends over for Brunch we had this yummy little bread for Breakfast/Lunch and by about 2 pm it was all gone (the first loaf, the second one was hidden in my oven, so I had some left… hehe).
It tastes especially good when toasted we found out.
Yesterday evening when I came home from work I made myself a sandwich for dinner with the leftovers:
