Day 45: Pain de mie

With Dean not eating much during the day — no sandwiches at lunchtime, no toast for breakfast — I’m not baking as much bread as I’d hoped to during my retirement.

That’s not stopping me from dreaming though. Or buying bread tools.

I was craving a peanut butter and jelly sandwich the other day and all of our bread was moldy. I was actually craving a pbj on Wonder Bread, so I decided to use my brand new pain de mie pan and make myself a homemade loaf of white bread.

While it was not Wonder Bread (and that is probably a good thing) it was delightfully close. Net time I will try to make a wheat loaf.

I only have a 9″ pain de mie pan and the recipe I wanted to use was for a 13″ pan so I had enough left over for two smaller loaves. Rupert approved.

One thought on “Day 45: Pain de mie

  1. I wish I lived closer to you: I would gladly accept gifts of loaves in service to your retirement bread-baking dreams.

    P.S. I don’t think I have ever craved anything on Wonder Bread.

    P.P.S. I have never heard of pain de mie.

    P.P.P.S. I would fight Rupert to the death for a slice of that bread. It looks tres (imagine un accent grave over the “e”) yummy.
