Ok, so this is the bread that my mom and I always make, as far as I know it is pretty much the standard recipe for bread in most Bosnian homes, give
or take a few variations.
Oh, and by the way, if you follow the recipe carefuly you should end up with really delicious bread.
WHITE BREAD RECIPE
2 tbsp yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp salt
6 cups or more of white flour
vegetable/olive oil for pan
First, combine the salt and flour in a large bowl; in a smaller bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top of the 1 1/2 cups of warm water, now sprinkle the
sugar on top of the yeast, let it all disolve and rise. Mix all ingredients to a smooth dough by kneading by hand for aproximately 5-10 min, add
extra water or flour if you need to, place in a greased bowl and cover with a clean cloth. Let rise to the brim of the bowl one or two times (or
overnight for sourdough bread). Cut up the dough into equal amounts and shape into loaves, sprinkle with flower. Place the loaves onto lightly
greased pan(s). Let rise one more time for just a half hour or so. Bake 350-400F for about 1 hr or untill the inside of the bread is done.
Substitute 3 cups of whole wheat flour for the equal amount of
white in the White Bread Recipe.
Add butter or whatever, you will love it, that is my guarantee.
