Amish White Bread

A new year.  A new recipe. 

Things are off to a good start at The Broadway Deli.  Today we served Potato Soup, Chicken Pesto Pasta and our awesome menu items.  We also do decorated cakes.  Today we tackled a cake to feed 50 for the
mother of a dear friend who is celebrating 30 years at her job.  Also, we did a fire truck cake for a sweet little boy's second birthday.  This weeks cakes orders are low, but we are gearing up for a great year of cakes.  We have been getting serveral calls a day for future cake orders, and we have had to turn down several today for this weekend.  The everyday person doesn't realize how much time is put into decorating a cake.  Since we are not a full time bakery, we are just not able to put out a decorated cake that is placed on a Thursday for a Friday.  Sometimes we are so busy with cakes we require a four week notice on them. 

Last night I whipped up some Amish White Bread.  The recipe link at the top of this post.  It was easy to make and was the best recipe for bread I have made yet.  It is very tastey.  Some people commented it was too sweet and cut back on the sugar, but I like bread just the way it is.  I only have one loaf pan at my home and the recipe makes two loaves.  I did have two smaller foil pans, so I split the second loaf into them. 
I used King Arthur Unbleached All-Natural Bread Flour.  Also,  it calls for 1 1/2 tablespoons of active dry yeast which measures out to be two packets if that helps save you some measuring time.  Please try out this reicpe.  It is worth your effort and time.
