KIRREats: Homemade Sandwich Bread by @Styleinkhk
Do you ever notice it takes a looooooong time for your store bought bread to get moldy? Store them in the fridge for more than a month and you still don’t see any mold. But why? Store bought sandwich bread contains at least 10 ingredients. They are full of ingredients that are not food, like azodicarbonamide (the same chemical in yoga mats and shoe rubber), other chemical dough conditioners, added sugars, artificial flavorings or coloring and GMOs.
Flour can be treated with many approved chemicals before it ends up on store shelves – including chemical bleach! Industrial processing destroys nutrients, such as Vitamin E and fiber. To make plain sandwich bread, you only need 4 ingredients – flour, yeast, water and salt – though I have added a little butter and coconut sugar in this recipe.
Notice that this sandwich bread is not white because I have used coconut sugar. If you prefer to have white bread, feel free to switch to organic cane sugar which has a much lighter color.
