Bea's Favorite Homemade Bread or Buns
40 mins (prep 20, cooking 20)
7 ingredients

As some of my Zaar friends have probably noticed, I have been trying loads of different bread recipes and jotting down what I liked and disliked about them. I then researched what every item specifically does as an end result.This is what I have come up with. Just enough sugar to brown it properly, enough eggs to add richness to the bread and make the crust shinny and tender, just enough salt to help control yeast development, and prevent the bread from over rising and, of course my favorite ingredient, bacon drippings, instead of oil, for added flavor.I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as i do. I think it was worth the effort and research.
