  • That will give you a round loaf, but if you want "sandwich" slices, why not just use a couple of loaf pans?

    Also, you can use the dough setting on your bread machine for the kneading and first rise. Then continue as directed.

    (And I agree about Robin Williams - "The Birdcage" is another good one - and Steve Martin in "A Simple Twist of Fate" - they're better when playing it straight, so to speak. :)

  • Both of your suggestions are terriffic!

    (I didn't know about the bread machine one. I will have to try that this weekend!)

    As for why my grandmother liked round loaves instead of bread loaves, my grandfather was a hearty eater!

    He could eat an entire loaf af bread when making a few snacks. Dagwood had nothing on him.

    But when she made the round loaves he only cut two slices off the bread for a sandwhich, saving her time in the kitchen.

    Also, she used to make dips to go inside of hollowed out loaves for parties and when people came to play cards.

    Thanks for your reply!
