I made a loaf of bread using a KA recipe today. It's their recipe for Honey-Oat Pain de Mie. I bought the pan (on Amazon) because I wanted bread with a thinner crust. (I bought the pan for thin crust. I went to Amazon because it was cheaper!)

I'm thrilled with the recipe and the outcome! Very flavorful, soft but has enough strength to be sliced on the thin-side.

Here is a picture of the finished product! I made the recipe exactly like the recipe with KA all-purpose flour. I will definitely make it again!

Already in the bread.

I was the child whose mother had to remove all of the crusts. This crust is SO thin.

As much as I dislike bread, even I would love to have a toasted egg salad with that bread. Or even just toasted with butter.

While this would appear to be nearly double the cost to make bread using the bread flours available at many supermarkets, I consider the additional cost to be one of the more affordable luxuries.
What think you?
The taste is the key. If it tastes better than that made with the cheaper flour then hang the expense. Anyway, if it tastes better, has a better texture and keeps better then it's probably more economical anyway. I find that the better the bread's quality the less people seem to need to eat as it's more satisfying.

The bread toasts up well, Addie!

The better the flour, the better the bread and the better it tastes and the better it is for you.

It was quite common during the Victorian era for a working man to eat up to 4 pounds of bread a day!
