Pullman Loaf

This recipe makes the perfect white bread for sandwiches (especially grilled cheese). Because it has butter and sugar, it takes almost a week before it goes stale if you keep it wrapped in plastic. It is based on a Martha Stewart recipe and won a 2nd place ribbon at the San Diego County Fair in 2013.

Note: A Pullman loaf pan has a lid so that each slice is a perfect square. You can also make it in a standard loaf plan.

I like mine with fresh diced tomatoes, sausage and a combination of shredded mozzarella and fresh parmegiano reggiano cheeses.

Makes 2 pizzas. Continue reading

Makes eight pretzels.
