Simple Sandwich Bread

I think that there are still a lot of things to learn and I learn something new every day ^^.

Right now, I'm having fun with flour. 

As I told you before that when I started baking, there were 2 or 3 brands of flour in the market but now it's easier to get different types of flour. 
The flour with different percentages of protein, ash, or moisture acts differently even in the same recipe ^^. And I'm so excited every time that I taste it.

After testing (or you can say playing with them), I hope that I will find the favorite type (or types) of flour that I will love to use again and again but now it's an experiment period for me.

This simple bread is one of the reasons for me to have more than one type of flour in my kitchen. Just changing the flour and the taste of the bread is different! 

Well, even if I say that it's simple, this bread is DELICIOUS, haha. With a tablespoon of milk powder, it fills the bread with a lovely milk fragrance (anyway, not too much).  The liquid in this recipe is water so the crumb is soft but chewier than the one that uses milk.

You will see more bread recipes ^^, but I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
