This bread is exactly what it says, Easy White Bread! For that reason, it is a bread I make often. It doesn’t require any special skills or technique and was one of the first breads I attempted when I started trying to bake bread at home. Of course, my initial attempts were awful. I had to figure out that I needed to check the quality of my yeast.
Then, most cookbooks tell you to leave the dough to rise for about an hour or some such period. I found out the hard way that the time for the dough to rise depends on room temperature or where you place the dough. So, now I know that whatever time it takes the dough to roughly double in volume is the “time”.
I learnt many other things along the way and now am able to turn out a reasonably decent bread. My daughter and husband call this my “unhealthy” bread. This is because I have a tendency to try and make most of my breads “healthier” by adding whole wheat flour, or bran, or wheat germ, etc.! I have to add that they seem to prefer this “unhealthy” version.
You can substitute 1 cup of all purpose flour with 1 cup of whole wheat flour if you so wish.
