It's been awhile since Nancy and I have had a chance to Twitter bake together but we found occasion last week when she proposed making Dan Lepard's Sour Cream Sandwich Bread together.
Dan Lepard is the author of our much beloved and much baked Milk Loaf Bread, of which I must be entitled to some sort of award by now for making it the most of anyone other than possibly Dan Lepard himself. What can I say, it's a hit around here for sandwiches, toast, and grilled cheese. We never tire of it.
When Nancy came upon this new recipe, and blogging/Twitter friend Ulrike also was making it last week, I decided that I needed to give it a shot as well. This is one HUGE loaf of bread.
I made a double batch and baked it in two 5x7" pans as I did not have the exact pan he specifies in the recipe. It worked out well, but too tall for my toaster.
It's just wonderful, we all liked it. Will it replace the beloved Milk Loaf for sandwiches, toast, and grilled cheese? No, it's a little softer than we like for those items. That said, I think it would make delicious dinner rolls, so I am going to try making those with the dough very soon. I must find something to use it for, it's just too good to pass it by. I'll keep you posted.
Here's the link to the bread recipe so you can give it a try in your kitchen.
