Basic Recipe for Homemade Buns or Sandwich Bread
If using active dry yeast, add the yeast to the warm water and allow it to warm and dissolve following directions on yeast package before adding the rest of the ingredients.
Cool on wire rack before slicing (if you can wait that long). My preferred cooling rack is a 16×20 inch with a grid pattern, because it’s large enough to hold a double batch of bread dough, but the grid pattern keeps small cookies and such from falling through. Cutting hot bread will allow steam to escape and dry out the loaf of bread, but sometimes they disappear so fast it doesn’t really matter.
