Basic lean white bread and variation

Yield: 16 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 1/2 Lb Loaf:; (1 Lb Loaf):
1½ teaspoon Active Dry Yeast; (1 T)
3 cups Bread Flour; (2 C)
1½ teaspoon Salt; (1 T)
1½ teaspoon Sugar; (1 T)
1¼ cup Water; (3/4 C + 1 T)

This airy, crusty, loaf is perfect sandwich bread fro tuna fish, peanut butter or lettuce and tomato. If you don't slice it too thick, it will even fit into a low-calorie diet. Since this recipe has no shortening, the bread will turn stale, after only one day, but it will still make fine toast, especially good for a fried egg sandwich.

Variation I used: Decreased the bread flour to 2½ C and added ½ C yellow cornmeal. Added 2 T sesame seeds It really made it a totally different bread.
