Some white bread recipes make a loaf that is very similar to the commercially available bread. This is fine if you have children and want to send their PB&J's on bread that won't embarrass them. I am over being embarrassed by my bread. I like a little heft to my bread - even the white bread. This loaf is perfect - white, fluffy, a little sour, a little crusty. The perfect blend. The perfect way to use up some starter.
