The novel One for the Blackbird One for the Crow takes place in the late 1800s. There are several references to the women baking bread. On several occasions bread with butter or jam was all they had to eat. I am thankful that I don’t have to make my daily bread.
This recipe is for a simple, classic white bread. The yeast dough has two proofing periods and makes two loaves. My house smelled wonderful when I pulled the hot loaves out of the oven. I was tempted just to bread with butter for my dinner.
