House of Weird Bread

My husband loves to bake a loaf of white bread each week. I do not eat white bread, but he says his baked white bread is quite tasty. Sometimes my husband forgets that the bread dough he plans to bake is rising. Due to his forgetting, he ends up with a bread dough that has risen to great heights and a bread dough that is falling over the edges of the bread pan. When baked, that bread dough of mammoth size with dough falling over the sides of the pan produces a huge loaf of white bread that renders jumbo and rather deformed slices of white bread. Of course, my husband says this bread tastes great! Sometimes my husband forgets he is baking bread in the oven. The result is a loaf of white bread that looks like a loaf of brown bread. The left-too-long-in-the-oven bread is a bit crunchy, but the middle of the white bread is nice and soft, according to my husband. So far, we are the house of the "Jumbo White Bread" and the "White Bread That Looks Like Brown Bread." I am waiting for my husband to forget about some crucial part of his bread baking process in the near future. I really want to add a third unique loaf of white bread to the list.

My first attempt at baking white bread, it rose so high it stuck to the top of our apartment sized oven! I wedged it off with a pancake turner and when it cooled, I couldn't wait to cut into it! The entire middle was a large hole! LOL Bread, I don't do very well!

Oh No! this means one thing, you will have to keep a check on that white bread in the oven before it turns into nasty brown bread, so your husband can have a perfect loaf of white bread.

Well, I do not want to tell him his bread is in trouble due to the fact that his mess-ups make for good discussions. And, photos!!!

I will be at the ready with my camera to get a photo of his next weird bread. He needs to focus on what he is doing.

@JudyEv Oh good. My husband forgets about bread, and I forget about the hose. I will watch his bread dough and he can check my hose.

I have been known to bake white bread that looks like brown bread. It's quite difficult to do, you know. :)

That is a big "tanned" loaf of bread he has! I've never been much of a bread eater, and as the years progress I am even less of one.

Possibly he needs to set an alarm to remind him of what he is doing.

The only decent bread I make is done by my bread machine. Whole wheat multigrain or rye bread is all we eat, if we have bread at home. If your hubby thinks it looks good and tastes good, then more power to him. lol

He seems to be quite happy with his weird bread, so the bread-baking will continue. Hope I really get at least one more weird bread to share with all of us here.

Yes, big bread tastes pretty good, and it makes for a huge sandwich.

What doesn't your husband do? He runs in marathons and bakes bread. Does he always bake it the same way?

No, something his bread turns out beautifully if he doesn't get distracted by doing other things around here.

@Corbin5 So, he has to learn to concentrate on one thing at a time or Molly should help him then she can stare him down and then maybe he can concentrate on the bread. Does he just make it for the family or sell it too?

@Corbin5 my mom used to bake breads and I tried my hand when the kids were around...Not loafs but more of buns and scones with fillings. Cooking reduced to minimum after the nest got empty

I think, from what I see in the picture, it was too much inside the oven. Maybe your husband should cook a little less. At that point, it could be called "white bread"

That's really quite funny and I really empathize with your husband because I also make very strange loads of bread only mineed are usually wholemeal. Sure your husband is right when he says that his bread is very tasty because homemade bread usually is.
