My middle child absolutely loves my homemade bread, so when he saw I made homemade bread for sandwiches just for his lunch, he was over the moon! If only I had cooled the bread OUT of the bread pan, I think it would have been a little bit better. But it was still good. He ate two pieces of this bread for breakfast and then took a sandwich to school with it.

I made this bread too late at night and was focused on making it correctly and forgot to worry about cooling it. So basically you want to remove it from the pan as soon as possible and allow the bread to cool on a rack. Otherwise the steam builds up and the edges become too crusty and rubbery. Not a great combination.

So, this bread was amazingly EASY to make! I couldn’t believe it. The two days before this, I had tried twice to make a different kind of bread and it just didn’t work. #breadfail
