Nothing is nicer than the smell of Traditional White Bread baking on a cold morning.
Traditional White Bread is plain but that doesn’t in any way mean that it tastes ordinary! So when you slice it, smother butter all over it and have honey dripping off it, it’s pretty awesome!
This recipe isn’t really that easy and quick, but I guarantee you that your hard work will pay off! While waiting, you can work on the toppings or any other flavourings you want to add.
