Despite its wonderful texture and flavour, a loaf such as this is more than easy to prepare. In addition, it’s the basis for all the recipe variations in this chapter; some use a full recipe, some use half. After you try this once, you’ll never settle for supermarket sandwich bread again. Many thanks to my friend Kyra Effren for sharing all her wisdom about this bread, which she has been making two to seven times a week for 50 years.
