Apple Cider {yeast} Bread

I love baking bread, and I try to bake the majority of the bread  my family eats.  For sammies I  like a nice honey wheat, graham bread is great for snacking, and cinnamon swirl has got to be my kids favorite for toast in the morning.  Sometimes though, I just like a LWL {little white loaf}.

Plain and simple, a basic white loaf, fresh from the oven is my idea of bliss.

Sunday is bread baking day at my house, and yesterday along with the  bread,  I was making apple butter with  cider, and cider braised chicken. My kitchen smelled like a cider mill, and it got me to thinking…why not cider in bread.

You will not get an in your face cider taste, but there is a hint of apple and a faint sweetness. I’m sure you could play up the flavor by adding some cinnamon or sugar to the dough.  I just wanted to keep it simple.

The cider replaces milk and sugar, while still producing a basic white loaf perfect for sandwiches, toast, or for snacking with a bit of butter and jam.
