After making my first bread instructable (Peter Reinhart - Lean Bread), I tough it would be a nice idea to post a simpler basic recipe.

In this instructable, I'll explain how to make the most basic bread loaf (imo).

It's a plain white bread; A nice canvas for your creativity.

In my case, I had in mind putting dryed cranberry... but somehow I couldn't find them, so it stayed plain (which is good on his own!).

Step 1: Ingredients

Always the same basic ingredients :

- 17.65oz / 500g Bread Flour
- 11oz / 312g Water
- 1½ tsp (0.21oz / 6g) Yeast
- 1½ tsp 0.31oz / 9g) Salt

Make 2 1lb loaves(or 4 mini loaves in my case)

Remember to use lukewarm water!
