This is a very easy white bread recipe. You probably have all of the ingredients in your pantry right now. If you are just now starting to bake bread at home, this is the best white bread recipe to start with.

This recipe is different than the one you will find in Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a day because this dough is actually a batter. It rises relatively quickly and can be refrigerated if you don't want to bake it right away. WHITE BATTER BREAD-an easy white bread recipe
