I didn’t take as many pictures this time, since all the steps were the same as the first attempt.
Once all the ingredients were combined, and the dough was formed, I placed it in the bowl to rise.

Yay!!! It rose again, just like it was supposed to!! Things are looking up…. time to pop this baby in the oven!
It turned out PERFECT!!! Look how large the loaf is this time??
I am ready for my taste test!!!
The bread is AMAZING!! (Not that it didn’t taste good the first time) My first attempt created a very dense, doughy bread, this time it is so much lighter!

no joke there for a reason! I think I will still be purchasing metal bread pans, as the bread was still slightly doughy on the bottom in the center, and I think I could fix that by using a metal pan. I’ll keep you posted! I plan to make more later this week for Labor Day weekend!!
Do you have any baking tips or tricks to share?
