"This recipe for homemade white bread has been around for quite a while. There’s something about a vintage recipe that prompts you to try it. Chances are your mom or grandma made it back in the day. In 1963 I was only 4 years old, but it makes me wonder if my mom ever tried this recipe. I love a good homemade bread recipe. In fact, this one and my homemade Italian bread are my two favorites. I know you are going to love this bread."
