Pullman Loaf Pan
Have you ever heard of a "Pullman Loaf Pan"? I had not. Not until I read about this recipe. Skeptically, I ordered one from Amazon and I baked my first attempt of this bread recipe in it just days after receiving the pan.
I think this pan is the greatest thing since sliced bread! (sorry, I couldn't stop myself). A Pullman loaf pan is rectangular and has a lid that closes. This results in those square sandwich bread loaves. I was skeptical because, as I believe I've mentioned about a million times, I'm not so good in the kitchen. I couldn't imagine how a bread pan with a lid could possibly work and I expected disaster. Instead, this pan worked out great and I'm going to order a second one.

The Ultimate Bread Receipe from Patara at Appalachia's Homestead
I don't recall how I first came to hear about Appalachia's homestead. I believe I pinned one of her articles. Then I started to follow her on different social media sites - as I do many homestead bloggers.
I also joined her Homestead with Patara of Appalachia's Homestead facebook group. Those members (a great group of folks, I have to add) started posting photo after photo of their successes with this bread recipe. So I jumped on that hay wagon and ordered my Pullman pan, honey, and SAF yeast. I already had the salt, flour, warm water, and oil.
After all, I was feeling slightly more confident after my success with the Peasant Bread recipe. I felt like maybe I could branch out with another bread recipe. But I still wasn't very optimistic.
These are a few of the many reasons I recommend this recipe to you:
- only 6 ingredients
- you can bake this bread in Pullman pan, a flat sheet, regular bread loaf pan, or probably just about any pan you have handy
- the recipe made two large loaves - plenty of bread for me for a week or more
- quick prep time - knead for about ten minutes, let it rest 10 minutes, divide, and let it rise for 10-45 minutes, bake.
- forgiving recipe - substitute the SAF yeast with the yeast of choice, use wheat flour instead of bread flour, and so on.
As proof of my success with Patara's Ultimate Bread Recipe, I'll just post my photos. And following the photos, I'll add the links to finding Patara's sites. If you are at all interested in a bread that is easy enough for even me to bake successfully on the first attempt, or if you are at all interested in homesteading, be sure to check out some of the links below.
