My wife’s been baking our own bread for quite some time now, and likes to try new recipes whenever she finds one that looks interesting, while I bat clean-up in the kitchen taking care of the dishes. Recently, she came across a recipe called ‘Poor Man’s Bread’ found on ‘Humble In A Heartbeat dot com,’ that she’s made twice now – white bread as the recipe calls for, and a second time substituting a cup of whole wheat flour. I call this recipe ‘Basic Homemade Bread,’ because the list of ingredients is about as short as it gets: water, yeast, flour, salt.
Both versions of this bread turned out tasting great, with a slight sourdough flavor to my taste. The slices make wonderful toast, as they are crispy, crunchy and hold together well. I’m a peanut butter & jelly sandwich fan, and for me, both versions of the bread made great PB&J sandwiches, holding together even under spreading thick peanut butter that was cold out of the refrigerator and not easy to spread. The key for me, was that this bread made a nice, strong slice without being rubbery in any way. This bread is great, and the bonus is it’s cheaper to make and has fewer ingredients. Here’s a few photos ~ enjoy! ☼ 🙂
