Simple Bread Recipe

Need a delicious and simple bread recipe? Look no further! We’ve got the perfect one! Soft with a yummy crust, this bread recipe is perfect for sandwiches as toast or as is with a bit of butter. This is a really popular bread recipe at the cottage and we love to make it for gifts as well. Mr. Cottage brings it to work for his friends and they love it. It is easier to slice with an electric knife and you can slice it thin or a thicker slice. Makes a great sandwich loaf, perfect for French Toast, etc. We make it with organic ingredients but you can use what you have.

Can I Make This Loaf Gluten-Free?

We have never tried it before but try using Bob’s Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Flour at a 1:1 ratio.
 

Can I Make This Simple Loaf Sugar Free?

We have never tried it. The sugar helps the yeast to rise so you may have a flatter loaf. Try it and see.
