Is there anything more beguiling than purity of heart? Perhaps purity of crumb. This feathery white bread is grandma-style wonderful. This is grilled cheese, bread and butter, and toastest with the mostest bread. Fresh yeast makes this wonderful but dry yeast is fine. After glazing, you could opt to top this with some poppy seeds. I make this in a giant round, free form loaf (but you can use loaf pans too). It is dusted with flour before it goes into the oven. This is so spectacular that you will have one bite and forget you ever thought sourdough breads were the last word on baking with yeast. This is that good. Malt powder (non diasatic) is available in health food stores or via King Arthur Baker's catalogue or your local bagel shop (which is where get my malt powder).
