|here's an idea: use a ruler to scrape the extra flour from the counter!|
In the spirit of indulgence I'd like to share a little ol' bread recipe that was given to me by a co-worker whose son makes this bread by the bag full (seriously!) at a work camp in Fort Smith, North West Territories then sells out when he makes it for local Canada Day celebrations. Not that it is hard to sell white bread to anyone (ahem, PG supports 2 -!!!- fry bread makers at our outdoor farmer's market)
This recipe make a lot of loaves so either invite the neighbourhood, split it, or clear out your freezer! It would be perfect for Easter family celebrations because white bread is exactly what Easter is all about?! Just so you know, I'm sharing this recipe verbatim and sadly, I've never tried it. It sounds like candy compared to my regular recipes and I don't have an unscented garbage bag (ha!). This is man-baking at it's best (sorry guys!). Read on!

25 min. when you tap the bottom of the loaf and it sounds
