Mom’s Pullman Bread

My mother has been baking pullman bread every week with the same recipe for many many years.

I asked for the recipe a few years ago and since then I’ve been making it myself.

But when we were staying at my parents’ house during our stay in Japan this month, I realized that my mom’s bread tasted different from mine, even though we use the same recipe. I mean hers was better.

One day I had a chance to watch my mom make her bread, and I saw her using her “mochi” mixer to knead the dough.

The result was amazing!

The dough was so smooth and beautiful, different from mine which is hand-kneaded, and when it was sliced the inside looked silky.

Terry agreed that her bread was better when he tried a slice toasted, but Terry also thought their bread was toasted better.

So, yesterday Terry and I went to Williams and Sonoma to look for a new toaster.

And we came home with a Breville Toaster Oven AND a KitchenAid Mixer!

We were not planning to get the mixer, but when we saw it at the store, Terry and I looked at each other, and we both thought of the same thing; this will make a smooth bread dough like my mother’s.

Yes, we treated ourselves a bit, but we absolutely love them.

These are not only functional but also beautiful in our kitchen.

As soon as we got home I baked this pullman bread using the new mixer, and it turned out great.

We tried a slice toasted with our new toaster this morning, and it was delicious.
